Guiraudie placed 8th in Director and 11th in Screenplay for Stranger by the Lake (2014).
A day of weird and/or unhinged performances. Farrell makes it two in a row for Lanthimos, having finished at #5 last year for The Lobster; he also placed 13th in 2008 for In Bruges. Goldblum's sole previous appearance, at #15 in the same category, was for 2005's Dallas 362. Both women are new.
Before someone asks: While The Salesman received a qualifying release in 2016, and appeared on various lists and in polls that year, it did not open in New York City until January 2017. Skandies eligibility is based on NYC commercial runs, so it's a 2017 movie as far as we're concerned.
