It’s for The Oprah Winfrey Oscar Special, which airs tonight (March 3, 2010) at 10-11PM ET on ABC.
I hope you all got a chance to see the 20/20 special, from last night, there was some adorable footage of Pe shown. I haven’t been able to find it online yet though, but fingers crossed someone will upload a video somewhere. If so, let me know!
Penélope Cruz will be featured in tonight’s edition of 20/20 which is an Oscar special about stars before they were famous. They will show rare and never before seen videos and photos of the 2010 Academy Award nominees as well as interviews. Sorry for such short notice, I only just saw it on the TV now. Hopefully it will be available online afterward though.
The Hollywood Reporter announced that last year’s three Oscar winners – Sean Penn, Kate Winslet and Penélope Cruz – have all booked return visits to the 82nd Annual Academy Awards, where they will appear as presenters! Can’t wait and you can be sure Penelope-Cruz.org will follow the big night with tons of live coverage!
Cruz, who took home the supporting actress Oscar last year for Vicky Cristina Barcelona, has an added reason to show up since she’s nominated this year in the same category for playing the seductive mistress in Nine.
The Oscars will be broadcast live by ABC from the Kodak Theater in Hollywood on March 7.
Here is your first look at Miss Cruz on the red carpet of the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards! She looks stunning in a black dress.
Update 1) – Although not really a surprise, Penélope Cruz did not win Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture. That honor went to Mo’nique for her outstanding work in Precious. Nicole Kidman presented the award and Pe blew her a kiss to the stage.

• Pe gave a red carpet interview with E! News and when Ryan Seacrest pointed out she was holding her own umbrella, she joked, “I knew I would be holding my own umbrella. I’m not like Puff Daddy [Diddy], I hold my own umbrella.” She of course she was referring to Diddy’s infamous personal assistant and “Umbrella Holder,” Farnsworth Bentley.
On Wednesday, Oprah will be airing the encore broadcast special with the Nine cast. She chats with Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson and Marion Cotillard about their new musical. Be sure to tune in if you missed its entirety the first time around!
