Skandies: #15

Picture: It Follows (60/8)
Director: Pedro Costa, Horse Money (53/4)
Actress: Ronit Elkabetz, Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem (69/7)
Actor: Gaspard Ulliel, Saint Laurent (75/6)
S. Actor: Simon Abkarian, Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem (54/5)
S. Actress: Suzanne Clément, Mommy (56/9)
Screenplay: Charles Randolph and Adam McKay, The Big Short (69/6)
Scene (tie for #14): Anniversary party, 45 Years (50/5)

(Lots of clips from 45 Years on the Internet, but none at all from the ending.)


This is Costa's first appearance.

Elkabetz gets her first nod since placing 6th in Supporting for Late Marriage back in 2002. Clément finished 6th in the lead category for Dolan's Laurence Anyways two years ago. Both men are new.

Charles Randolph previously wrote The Life of David Gale, The Interpreter, and Love & Other Drugs, which (a) explains a lot in my opinion and (b) means he has never previously landed in the top 20. Nor has McKay for any of his Will Ferrell comedies.

Is there a wider range of votes this year or is the total voter count lower than usual?

I had a couple of abstentions, but they aren't having much of an effect on point totals. When you see fewer points near the bottom, it generally indicates the opposite of what you're suggesting: a narrower range of votes, with everyone throwing most of their 100 at the same favorites. That's especially true in Director this year.

Interesting, thanks for the info. Makes me even more excited about seeing the top of the list.

Good job Clement voters (and right category too). I'm mixed on the film myself, and I know it has its haters, but she (and Dorval, obv) was fantastic.
