Stanton did not place for Finding Nemo, though the film itself finished 13th.

In addition to being nominated for Twelve Monkeys in 1995 (under different rules), Pitt previously finished 10th in the lead category for Fight Club (1999). Downey Jr. was covered when he placed at #8 in Supporting for Tropic Thunder. Hawkins and Herzi are new.

Kaufman finally fails to take home the trophy, having won for Being John Malkovich (1999), Adaptation. (2002), and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004).

Is Herzi's "Passion Index" the highest for film/actor/scene? It's seems startlingly high - nearly twenty points.

Almost. Technically, the highest average in terms of points per vote was for the "Rachel bathes Kym" scene, but that was just two people so let's ignore it. Otherwise, here are the top five across all categories:

19.83: Elles alfresco, Scene
19.55: Hafsia Herzi, Supporting Actress
18.69: Charlie Kaufman, Screenplay
17.25: Lance Hammer, Director
17.13: Carlos Reygadas, Director
