(This is the end of the movie, so, y'know, spoilers and whatnot. Also NSFW-ish, and a scene that kind of requires the full context of the movie for proper impact.)
Villeneuve placed 5th last year for Sicario.
Cotillard* was the Skandies' Best Actress winner in 2014, for Two Days, One Night. She also placed 4th that same year for The Immigrant. Plus: #11 twice (for La Vie en Rose in 2007 and Rust and Bone in 2012), and #14 in Supporting (Public Enemies, 2009). Grant makes his first appearance in 14 years, having previously finished 9th in the lead category for About a Boy (2002) and 17th in Supporting for Bridget Jones's Diary (2001). Lerman and Kim are new, though the latter is also in play this year for her lead (?—people disagree) role in Hong Sang-soo's Right Now, Wrong Then.
Desplechin has placed twice before in Screenplay: 8th in 2005 for Kings & Queen and 6th in 2008 for A Christmas Tale (written with Emmanuel Bourdieu). Peyr collaborated with him once before, on Jimmy P., but that film wasn't terribly well received; she has no other Skandie-eligible credits.
Category fraud: Grant and Kim are leads, in my opinion. (Both of them received votes in both categories.)
* The individual who initially voted for "Angelina Jolie, Allied" shall remain nameless.
