The Henry Thomas Award for best child performance award of 2011 goes to...
Thomas Doret for The Kid With a Bike
The Dardenne brothers were originally going to title this film The Pitbull and watching Doret's shockingly intense performance here you can imagine why.

It goes on a list with the great all-time kid performances.
