Oldboy is Park's first eligible film. Both Joint Security Area and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance placed in the Undistributed poll, however.
Of the actors, only Costner has previously shown up in the op 20, landing at #8 (NOTE: 7 rungs too low) for Best Actor in Tin Cup. He's now the third actor from the class of '96 to make a belated second appearance, after Claire Danes and Faye Wang/Wong.
Roth previously placed 19th for The Insider (co-written with Michael Mann).
