Indiewire about the vote:
"Kristen Stewart's work in Olivier Assayas' "Clouds of Sils Maria" garnered a first-place finish in the Supporting Performance list. In fact, if you throw in the handful of votes she also received for Lead Performance, she'd be tied with Dorval for the most overall ballot points of any performer. Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" also received spread-out acclaim, with its central acting triumvirate each appearing on their fair share of lists. Mark Ruffalo finished just behind Stewart, while Channing Tatum and Steve Carell each received a high combined total between mentions for Lead and Supporting."
