Shall We Play a Game?

Damn I love Letterboxd. Such a seemingly simple idea, it's blossomed already to become pretty much the main occupier of my online time. I'm really impressed by the fun things that have been made of lists of late by the likes of Dirk Hasselman with his genre essentials, Adam Cook with his "Help! What's the Name of That Film?" and many others too. I'd like to similarly bring us all together in our shared cinematic passion, this time by way of some fun movie trivia. So here's the idea: each row of films shares a common link, it's your job to figure out what. Here's just one to start us off.

Feel free to make suggestions as to how this could be better exploited, maybe there's a more interesting way we could put our nerdy knowledge to the test. I'd like this to be a collaborative effort.

Row 1: Each features an uncredited role for a later Hollywood superstar (Jacob Olsen)
Row 2: All nominated for Best Picture but not Best Director at the Oscars (Matthew Martin)
Row 3: All won Best Actor without a Best Picture nomination at the Oscars (Jacob Olsen)
Row 5: All remakes of older films (MONIROM)
