Javier Bardem has been nominated for an Oscar 2011 Best Actor award. Bardem is no stranger to Award ceremonies; he has already received an Oscar in the past (for his role in No Country for Old Men). Currently, Javier Bardem is nominated in the Best Actor category, for his performance in “Biutiful.”

Javier Bardem was born in Spain, and comes from a long line of actors. He made his film debut at the very young age of six and a half, when he appeared in El Picaro (The Scoundrel).

In Biutiful, Javier stars as Uxbal, a father-of-two who has become involved in mob activity. Uxbal leads a hard life in this dark and gritty drama; his family is struggling, and he is diagnosed with cancer. Javier Bardem delivers a brilliant performance in this lovely but painful film, effortlessly transforming Uxbal into a believable and multi-dimensional character.

Javier Bardem is up for Best Actor against Jeff Bridges, Jesse Eisenburg, Colin Firth, and James Franco. In the past, Bardem has won a BAFTA, 4 Goya awards, 2 European film awards, a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild award, as well as last year’s Oscar. He is the first Spaniard to be nominated for an award, and the first Spaniard to win.
