The Dardennes haven't missed in Director since (ironically) Rosetta, though this is otherwise their weakest finish. They placed 15th for La Promesse (1997), 5th for The Son (2003), 5th again for L'Enfant (2006), 11th for Lorna's Silence (2008), 13th for The Kid With a Bike (2012), and 6th for Two Days, One Night (2014).
Mara won Best Actress for Carol two years ago, and also placed 15th in 2011 for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo; her previous Supporting nods were at #20 (The Social Network, 2010) and #14 (Side Effects, 2014). The other three are new.
Bronstein and Safdie's previous collaboration on Heaven Knows What didn't make the cut in Screenplay, though the brothers placed in Director. (And Frownland's sole nod was for actor Dore Mann.)
