Boyhood‘s Richard Linklater maintains (and actually increases) his hold on the #1 spot again this month, breaking away from the two-way tie he was in with Birdman‘s Alejandro González Iñárritu, who falls just a teeny bit. Selma‘s Ava DuVernay moves up even though her film doesn’t and Interstellar‘s Christopher Nolan makes the biggest jump of the month, up 10 points to land in the top 5. Multiple trailer and photo releases amping up to its November 7th release are giving him and the film new life. But, will the Academy ever nominate him? Bennett Miller, like his film, tumbles here and holds onto the #5 spot by the skin of his nose (or Carell’s, as it were). That means that The Imitation Game‘s Morten Tyldum falls out of the top 5 despite his film being in the #3 slot. Erik remains the sole support for Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken and David Fincher manages a few votes even though his film surges.
