The Death of Mr. Lazarescu is Puiu's first Skandie-eligible film.

All of the actors are new except Bale, who nearly picked up his third "nomination"; he previously finished 3rd in 2000 for American Psycho and 18th last year for Batman Begins, and also came in 5th in Supporting last year for The New World.

Del Toro has no previous Screenplay citations.
