In addition to the Golden Globe nomination, Stuhlbarg was also nominated by the Chicago Film Critics and the London Film Critics for his performance, and he received the prestigious Robert Altman Award at the Independent Sprit Awards for the ensemble performance.

His other films include Ridley Scott's Body of Lies, opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, Boaz Yakin's A Price Above Rubies; Antonio Campos' Afterschool, which was showcased at the 2008 New York and Cannes International Film Festivals, and was released in fall 2009; Sophie Barthes' Cold Souls, with Paul Giamatti and David Strathairn; and Martin Scorsese's short homage to Alfred Hitchcock, The Key to Reserva.

In 2005, Stuhlbarg received a Tony Award nomination and a Drama Desk Award for Martin McDonagh's The Pillowman, staged by John Crowley. He has also been honored with the New Dramatists Charles Bowden Actor Award and the Elliot Norton Boston Theatre Award for Long Day's Journey into Night.

He has also starred off-Broadway in such shows as Cymbeline, reprising his role in a U.K. stint of the production, Old Wicked Songs, for which he was a Drama League Award recipient, Measure for Pleasure, which earned him a Lucille Lortel Award nomination and The Grey Zone.
