MASTERS: Antonio Banderas in his role as Picasso

THE Golden Globe nominations have been released and two Spanish actors have made the cut.

Penelope Cruz and Antonio Banderas each picked up their fourth nomination for the awards, given out on January 6 2019.

But Spain’s Hollywood heroes were nominated for their small screen roles this time around.

Cruz is up for ‘best supporting actress’ for her role as Donatella in The Assassination of Gianni Versace.

The blockbuster series is the second season of American Crime Story, which explores the death of fashion designer Gianni Versace who was murdered by Andrew Cunanan in a killing spree.

As well as a nomination for Cruz the American show got nods for ‘best series’, ‘best actor’ and ‘best supporting actor’.

Meanwhile Malaga’s Antonio Banderas is in contention for ‘best actor’ after his portrayal of Spain’s world-famous artist in Genius: Picasso.

Banderas already received an Emmy nomination for his role as the prolific Malaga painter in the series from National Geographic.

The wards, which are generally considered as precursor to the Oscars are to be presented by Killing Eve star Sandra Oh and Brooklyn Nine-Nine comedian Andy Samberg.

Adam McKay’s comedy Vice, which stars Christian Bale as Dick Cheney, received the most Golden Globe nominations with six.
