Penelope Cruz won an Academy Award on Sunday for her supporting role as a fiery, funny woman in a three-way relationship with her ex-husband and an American woman in the Woody Allen film "Vicky Cristina Barcelona." "Thank you Woody for trusting me with this beautiful character," a teary-eyed Cruz said as she accepted the award. The win made Cruz the first Spanish woman to win an acting Oscar, one year after her compatriot and co-star Javier Bardem won best supporting actor for "No Country for Old Men." Cruz delivered part of her acceptance speech in Spanish, saying that the win was for all the actors from her home country.
