[We join this scene already in progress, simply because the torrent I downloaded was in two files that happened to split it and I'm too lazy to figure out how to splice them together. The meat of it is here.]
HISTORY: The Dardennes previously placed 15th for La Promesse (1997) and 5th for both The Son (2003) and L'Enfant (The Child) (2006). We were not big fans of Rosetta.
Rockwell has made two previous top 20 appearances, at #13 in 2002 for Confessions of a Dangerous Mind and at #4 two years ago for Joshua. Tucci gets his first nod since 1996 (!), when he finished a way-too-low 19th in the lead category for Big Night. Both women are new, as is Burgess.
