Decidedly NSFW. And there are no English subtitles when people are speaking German, but the dialogue isn't really what matters here.

HISTORY:

Ade squeaked in at #20 for Everyone Else (2010).

Last year's Supporting Actress winner, Stewart has now placed in this category for three consecutive years, having landed at #16 two years ago for Still Alice. She also finished 18th for Adventureland in 2009. (Personal Shopper will be her first real shot at an Actress nod.) Hüller, I had completely forgotten, placed 20th for Requiem (2006). Both men are new.

As noted in the "nominees" post, Lanthimos and Filippou's Dogtooth screenplay placed 2nd in 2010.

This must be the first time in Skandies history a film had Picture, Director, Actress, and Actor all in the exact same position, no? (And scene, to boot)

Surprising, too, that Hüller had 26 people voting for her and still came in merely third (whereas Simonischek had "only" 17 voters and got the same rank). That means that Braga at #2 likely had a huge Passiondex (several 30-bombs) and Huppert of course got points from pretty much everyone.

Braga is bravissima in Aquarius, but it's still rather odd that she would place so high and the film itself wouldn't break the top 20. Tough year.

Those specific categories, perhaps, but Inglourious Basterds won every category except Actor and Actress.

In what universe can a film with that Cop-The-Fuck-Out last scene have the third-best screenplay??

"Surprising, too, that Hüller had 26 people voting for her and still came in merely third (whereas Simonischek had "only" 17 voters and got the same rank)."

... while Ade placed third with only *11* votes. Scorsese and Jarmusch must've run away and hid in this category.

Good job 2009 voters.

Also good job Paterson.

This year's winner: 190 points/15 votes.
George Miller last year: 425 points/26 votes

(I certainly contributed to this phenomenon by giving the bulk of my Director points to Rodrigo Plá and Joshua Marston, even though neither of their films cracked my top ten.)
