Penélope Cruz has picked up an Independent Spirit Award for her performance in Vicky Cristina Barcelona, she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress. Huge congratulations to Miss Cruz! Check back tomorrow for pictures from the event and of course the Oscars tomorrow too!

In a quick interview, Penélope told The LA Times, “I’m always surprised when I hear my name, of course,” she said backstage. “It’s a better feeling if you’re surprised. I get very terrified about going up there, but at the same time you want to go, so my heart was going very fast.”

She was wearing a flattering brown Azzedine Alaia fit and flared dress with black lace trim, brown tights and platform ankle-strap pumps. She’d also worn a black Alaia to the recent Screen Actors Guild Awards.

And for the Oscars? Another Alaia, perhaps?

“Tomorrow, I cannot tell you,” she explained. “I cannot answer that. That is a secret –- to tell what you are wearing.”

OK. Fine. So where will you put your award?

“In my house, I think.” (laughs)
