It appears that crime does pay, at least for Javier Bardem…
The 43-year-old Spanish actor – who earned an Oscar for playing a psychopathic assassin in No Country for Old Men – has picked up another nomination for his villainous role in Skyfall.
The London Film Critics’ Circle nominated Bardem in the Best Supporting Actor category for playing the main antagonist in the latest James Bond film.
Bardem, who received a SAG Award nomination earlier this month, will face off against Argo’s Alan Arkin, Prometheus’ Michael Fassbender, The Master’s Philip Seymour Hoffman and Lincoln’s Tommy Lee Jones.
Meanwhile, Chilean cinematographer Claudio Miranda has been nominated in the Technical Achievement Award category for his work on Ang Lee‘s Life of Pi. And the critically acclaimed Searching for Sugar Man, a film about Mexican American singer Rodriguez, has been nominated in the Documentary of the Year category.
The London Film Critics’ Circle will hold its 33rd awards ceremony on January 20.
