Spanish actress Penelope Cruz has been nominated for best performance by an actress in a supporting role for the film Vicky Cristina Barcelona.

The 34 year old Spanish actress had previously received a nomination in 2006 for best actress for her performance in Spanish director Pedro Almodovar’s 2006 film, “Volver” (Return), but ultimately did not win the award.
