Morris finished 3rd in 1997 for Fast, Cheap & out of Control, but had not placed again until now (even when The Fog of War landed at #11 in Picture).
A previous Skandie winner for Supporting Actor (Spring Breakers, 2013), Franco joins the Five-Timers Club (not an actual thing); he's also placed 13th in Supporting for Pineapple Express (2008), 15th in Supporting for Milk (also 2008), and 3rd in the lead category for 127 Hours (2010). Dunst makes it half a dozen—three out of the six in films directed by Ms. Coppola—with previous appearances at #12s (The Virgin Suicides, 2000), #16 (crazy/beautiful, 2001), #10s (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, 2004), #16 (Marie Antoniette, 2006), and #4 (Melancholia, 2011). Marillier and Hauser are new.
Gray's screenplays for Two Lovers (2009) and The Immigrant (2014), both cowritten by Ric Menello, placed 12th and 17th, respectively.
