Davies placed 14th for The House of Mirth (2000) and 4th for The Deep Blue Sea (2012).

Hathaway was last seen in 2012, when she placed twice in Supporting: 7th for her Oscar-winning performance in Les Miserables and 4th for her nothing-winning performance in The Dark Knight Rises. She also finished 3rd in Actress for Rachel Getting Married (2008). Ehle nearly won Supporting in 2012, coming in 2nd for Zero Dark Thirty; she also placed 15th in the same category for Contagion in 2011. Pattinson's mostly limo-confined role in Cosmopolis (2012 again) landed him at #10. R.I.P. Stanton, who receives his sole Skandie nod posthumously.

Assayas' screenplays for Irma Vep (1997), Summer Hours (2009), and Clouds of Sils Maria (2015) placed 6th, 6th, and 2nd, respectively. He also placed 8th in this category for Carlos: A Movie That Assayas Superfan That Creepy Greek Somehow Still Hasn't Seen (2010, co-written with Dan Franck).

Given the lack of COLOSSAL love thus far I had just about given up on Hathaway showing up. I'm so glad she cracked the top 10.

Something tells me we might be seeing Pattinson again...
