It’s no wonder Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem are Spain’s first couple of cinema; they each have a total of three Oscar nods, with one win apiece. Cruz, who earned a Best Actress nomination for her work in Pedro Almodóvar’s Spanish-language film Volver, earned her Oscar in the Best Supporting Actress category for her performance in Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona. And, she followed that up with another Best Supporting Actress nod the following year for her acting, singing and dancing skills in the musical Nine.

Best Actress, Volver, 79th Academy Awards, Nominated
Best Supporting Actress, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, 81st Academy Awards, Won
Best Supporting Actress, Nine, 82nd Academy Awards, Nominated
