It’s turning out to be a rewarding awards season for Javier Bardem…
The 43-year-old Spanish actor and Oscar-winner has been nominated for a 2013 Critics Choice Movie Award for Best Supporting Actor from the Broadcast Film Critics Association for his villainous role in the latest Bond film, Skyfall.
Bardem is competing against Argo’s Alan Arkin, Silver Linings Playbook’s Robert De Niro, The Master’s Philip Seymour Hoffman, Lincoln’s Tommy Lee Jones and Magic Mike’s Matthew McConaughey.
Last week Bardem received a Satellite Award nomination from the International Press Academy for his Skyfall performance.
Meanwhile, the Broadcast Film Critics Association nominated Chilean cinematographer Claudio Miranda for Best Cinematography for his work on Ang Lee’s Life of Pi, as well as Spanish costume designer Paco Delgado for Best Costume Design for his work on Les Misérables.
Winners will be announced on January 10, 2013, at a ceremony to be broadcast live on the CW network.
