Javier Bardem, the first Spanish actor to win an Oscar for his role in “No Country for Old men”, for which he also got a Golden Globe, picked up another important last week – the Spanish National Cinematography prize for 2008. The jury also took into account Bardem’s defence of his profession and Spanish cinema, both inside and outside Spain. The Ministry of Culture award is worth €30,000, which will come in useful now that the actor has decided to take a year’s sabbatical to recover from the stress of winning an Oscar.
