If anything is clear about the 83rd Academy Awards, the nominees for which were announced on Tuesday, it is that Javier Bardem is a well-established actor in Hollywood. The Spaniard has been nominated for an Oscar for the third time for his work in Alejandro González Iñárritu's Biutiful.
Bardem, who won a statuette for his performance in No Country for Old Men, is in Los Angeles with his partner, actress Penélope Cruz, awaiting the birth of their first child.
In a brief release, the actor said: "I feel truly honored by this nomination."
Spanish director Iciar Bollain's Even the Rain was left out of the finalists.
