Why: The 78-year-old Swedish icon was nominated 18 years ago for “Pelle the Conqueror,” and his turn here as Mathieu Amalric’s father will gives voters another chance to acknowledge the work of an actor who has stayed busy in his later years, albeit mostly in foreign films. The scene where he realizes that his son is paralyzed and can’t respond to him during a phone call is exceptionally memorable.
