DESPITE Penelope Cruz missing out on best supporting actress, Spain was still celebrating Oscar success this week.

Secret in their Eyes, co-produced by Spain and Argentina, won best foreign language film.

But Cruz and the two other Spanish nominees fell short.

Animated short The Lady and the Reaper and Spanish/Peruvian film The Milk of Sorrow failed to prosper.

Iraq war drama The Hurt Locker won Best Picture and Best Director while Jeff Bridges won best actor for Crazy Heart.
