Apologies for the poor quality—it's the only full version I could find with English subtitles.
Tarantino is a two-time Skandie winner for Director, in 2003 (Kill Bill Vol. 1) and 2009 (Inglourious Basterds). He also placed 5th for Kill Bill Vol. 2 (2004), 4th for Grindhouse (2007), and 10th for Django Unchained (2012). He did not make the top 20 at all for Jackie Brown, which was not especially beloved at the time of its release.
The last time Winslet made the Skandies list, in 2008, she was in 2nd place for all-time appearances, behind Philip Seymour Hoffman (who still holds the record). Over the past seven years—during which she made Carnage, Contagion, Labor Day, and Divergent—she gradually fell out of the top five, but this 10th nod puts her back in 4th overall, behind Hoffman, Tilda Swinton (13), and Isabelle Huppert (12). The roster:
3. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
8. Titanic (1997)
9. Jude (1996)
9s. Steve Jobs (2015)
10s. Quills (2000)
10. Revolutionary Road (2008)
12. Little Children (2006)
13. Holy Smoke (1999)
16s. Hamlet (1996)
17. Hideous Kinky (1999)
Gerwig previously placed 7th in 2010 for Greenberg, 7th again in 2012 for Damsels in Distress, and 2nd two years ago for Frances Ha. For Russell's history, see #20, as he also placed this year for Bone Tomahawk. Burge is new.
Kaufman is a three-time Skandie winner, for Being John Malkovich (1999) Adaptation. (2002, co-written with his brother Donald Kaufman), and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004). He's also placed 17th for Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (also in 2002) and 2nd for Synecdoche, New York (2008).
