- Award Snub: The Oscars saw Thomas Vinterberg earn a surprise nomination for his direction, but aside from an International Film nod (which it wound up winning), it was otherwise ignored. In particular, many felt that Mads Mikkelson should have been nominated for Best Actor.
- Do Not Do This Cool Thing: Though the film does a strong job showing the very negative effects of our main characters' actions, before things go wrong, they sure look like they're having a great time. Indeed even after the shit hits the fan, they still show that drinking can be enjoyable and even useful despite it's dangers.
- He Really Can Act: Mads Mikkelsen's acting abilities have never been in doubt, but many unfamiliar with his past were surprised at his absolutely fantastic dancing.
- It Was His Sled: Despite Martin dancing once again taking place at the very end and being somewhat of a twist (albeit a telegraphed one), it's often the first thing people see of the film.
- Signature Scene: The ending scene where Martin dances once again, showing Mads Mikkelsen's still got it.
YMMV / Another Round
