Bardem Earns Two MTV Movie Award Nominations

He may not have earned an Academy Award nomination for his villainous role in Skyfall, but Javier Bardem is seeing a windfall of attention from MTV.

The 44-year-old Spanish actor and Oscar-winner has earned two nominations for this year’s MTV Movie Awards for his role in the latest James Bond flick.

Javier Bardem II

Bardem, who earned an MTV Movie Award nod for Best Villain for 2007’s No Country for Old Men, has earned another nomination in that category this year for portraying the monstrous Raoul Silva in Skyfall.

In addition, Bardem earned a nod in the Best WTF Moment category for his memorable ““Oops… There Goes His Face” scene in the Bond film.

But Bardem isn’t the only Hispanic celebrity to earn recognition this year…

Former CSI: Miami star Adam Rodriguez and his Magic Mike co-stars have been nominated in the “Best Musical Moment” category.

The MTV Movie Awards will air love on MTV on Sunday, April 14 at 9:00 pm ET. Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson will serve as the night’s hostess.

Here’s a look at Bardem and Rodriguez’s categories.
