Biutiful directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu from Mexico is among the five nominated for Best Foreign Language Film.
Javier Bardem is nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role by the Academy and we are elated. This was a power performance by the veteran Spanish actor.
Bardem said in a statement: “I am truly honored for this nomination and deeply thankful to the Academy members for their trust and support. … It’s really a huge honor to have been nominated in a non-English speaking performance and in the name of all my colleagues in Spain and mine I want to show my gratitude to the Academy for support and a recognition in this nomination.”
