I’ve now rallied up all the photos of Ms. Cruz from last Sunday’s Golden Globes ceremony I could muster up. About 77 photos of her on the red carpet, in the audience and at the after party. Pe wore a Armani Privé Spring 2005 black gown with a mermaid tail.
After the jump you can check out several clips and interviews of her on the red carpet.
CBS’s 60 Minutes has posted an amazing new piece of Penélope Cruz. In the rare interview, the Spanish starlet and Academy Award Winner, opens up about her life, career and childhood (also includes rare images of her as young girl!). Charlie Rose reports. While I do not like how the reporter goes about some parts of the interview, Pe remains poised and intelligent. It is truly a must see for her fans! Also worth noting – the video features some behind the scenes footage of Penélope and Pedro being shot for the Vanity Fair Hollywood Portfolio (usually the March issue)!
At 35, Spanish actress Penelope Cruz is one of the most sensual and photographed women in the world. She has won critical acclaim, not only in Europe, but now, also in Hollywood. Last year she took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress — the first Spanish actress ever to win an Academy Award.
How did this versatile performer from a working class suburb of Madrid become this generation’s Sophia Loren?
In an interview with Charlie Rose, Cruz said she trained for three months to do a number in the movie.
She told Rose, “I had so much fun.”
And Cruz’s enjoyment shows in her provocative performance.
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.
Update 2) Kate Hudson presented the clip for Nine‘s entry in the Best Movie Musical or Comedy category.
Update 3) Several shots of Penélope in the audience, like during Meryl Streep’s acceptance speech.
Update 4) The award for foreign language film went to The White Ribbon and not Broken Embraces. Sophia Loren presented.
Update 5) Reese Witherspoon presented the award for Best Comedy/Musical to The Hangover, unfortunately Nine lost. Lots of shots of Miss Cruz shown in the audience again!
Update 6) Celebrities signed a Chrysler 300 Eco Style car for Stars for a Cause, view images of Pe here for now. I will add them to the site shortly. This Chrysler 300 is one of seven in existence.
Update 7) Penélope Cruz is attended the Belstaff The Weinstein Co. Golden Globe After Party. View the first photos of her and Marion Cotillard here.
• Nine‘s song “Cinema Italiano” lost to “The Weary Kind” (Theme From Crazy Heart).
• Stars are wearing ribbon pins on their outfits in support of Haiti.
• 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.
Stay tuned for more updates!
Penélope Cruz, Marion Cotillard and legendary Sophia Loren attended the photocall at Rome’s St. Regis Grand Hotel for Nine on Wednesday. Cruz was sultry and gorgeous in a black corseted lace dress with fringe detail by Dolce & Gabbana. Thanks to Amanda for sending a few pictures! At the premiere she wore Armani Prive Fall 2006 Couture creme beaded halter dress, with matching gold peep-toes.
Speaking of Nine, this Sunday marks the 67th Annual Golden Globes awards. Almost all of the major Nine stars have been tapped for presenters, and since Cruz is nominated herself, its highly unlikely she wouldn’t attended. So although no reports have officially announced her as a guest, we’ll keep our fingers crossed and be sure to tune in on Sunday, January 17! The show, hosted by Ricky Gervais, will be broadcast live coast to coast on NBC (5 to 8 pm PT, 8 to 11 pm ET) from The Beverly Hilton. We will be doing live coverage on the site if Miss Cruz does grace us with her presence. :)

World renowned Spanish actress Penelope Cruz is nominated for the Best Actress Award for the film Broken Embraces. Congratulations to Pe! The Goya is the Spanish equivalent to the American Academy Award.

Just a quick non-related Penélope message today to say that I have launched a new fansite dedicated to the adorable and talented Rachel McAdams with a friend! You may know her from her movies like Mean Girls, The Notebook, Sherlock Holmes or Red Eye among others. Our site features all the latest news and images of her. If you’re a fan stop by and let us know what you think!
Hope you guys are having a Merry Christmas!

Now you better get your butts to the cinema on Friday and see Nine!
Penelope Cruz has it all: pin-up looks, honest-to-god talent and an Oscar as a spectacularly desirable cherry on top. Now she stars in Rob Marshall’s musical Nine, as the mistress to Daniel Day Lewis’ Italian filmmaker. We talked to Cruz in London recently about her latest bespangled role…
After nearly 10 months, we finally have a new look here on Penelope-Cruz.org! While I was proud to showcase Penélope’s historic Oscar win this past year, we definitely needed a change, and what better that to celebrate the upcoming release of Nine! After all, Pe is getting tons of awards buzz again! I am extremely excited for the film and the promotional images our her are to die for. Also be sure to check out the matching but also different theme in the gallery.
The layout is best viewed in Mozilla Firefox, but has been checked in IE and holds up (but still prettiest in Firefox – hee!) but please let me know if you encounter any errors. I really hope you like the new look. Return again later for several updates I’ll be bringing you!

Miss Cruz was truly the definition of vision in red at the New York premiere of Nine last night! She dazzled and every inch was pure perfection! One of my very favorite looks of hers in quite some time! Take note, this is how it’s done people! Her stunning co-stars all opted for shades of black and white and Pe opted for some va-va-voom as you might notice in the photos – not like that’s a bad thing ;)
