He recalled that this path was cleared beforehand, thanks to his colleagues like Luis Buñuel, Juan Antonio Bardem, who is his uncle, and of course the director Pedro Almodóvar.

The Spaniard is excited for Penelope and insists that he expects her to be the one to get out of the dolby theater with the statuette. It should be remembered that Cruz already has a gold award, so this would be the second. The same goes for Bardem, who won it 14 years ago. In total, for the couple this is his fourth nomination.
