oscars_13_Rosie Perez

Rosie Pérez is fearless when it comes to her acting roles. The Nuyorican actress has been impressing audiences and critics alike in films like Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing and White Men Can’t Jump. But it was her performance as Carla Rodrigo – a plane crash survivor who lost her baby son in the tragedy and struggles with survivor's guilt – in Peter Weir's 1993 film Fearless that earned Pérez a much-deserved Oscar nomination.

Best Supporting Actress, Fearless, 66th Academy Awards, Nominated
