First-ever Oscar nomination for Antonio Banderas
15 January 2020 @ 13:28

THIS year's Oscar Awards has brought three nominations for the Spanish film industry – and the first of his career for Hollywood legend Antonio Banderas.

Málaga-born Banderas, 59, has already received congratulations from his ex-wife Melanie Griffith, from whom he split five years ago – and although the Almodóvar veteran has five Golden Globe, four Goya, and an Emmy, a Tony and two Actors' Union nominations, he has never yet been in the running for an Oscar despite having been in the acting business since 1982.

He is up for Best Actor for his (pictured) rôle in Pedro Almodóvar's Dolor y Gloria ('Pain and Glory'), which is nominated for Best International Film.

The third nomination for Spain is for Klaus, produced by the country's third channel Atresmedia, broadcast by Netflix and directed by Sergio Pablos and Carlos Martínez López, for Best Animated Film.

Dolor y Gloria, nominated for a Best Foreign Language Film Golden Globe, is up against the South Korean black comedy-cum-psychological thriller Parasite, which is the favourite to win a Best International Film Oscar.
