In Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s drama Babel, which tells multiple stories that take place in Morocco, Japan, Mexico and the U.S., Adriana Baraza manages to outshine two of Hollywood’s elite: Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett. The former telenovela star’s distressing role as an undocumented Mexican nanny trying to get the children in her care back into the country didn’t just move audiences, it resulted in a Best Supporting Actress nod in a year when 10 Mexicans were nominated at the 79th Academy Awards.
