Penélope Cruz was forced to miss an event at Cannes Film Festival after suffering from a case of food poisoning.
The stunning star was set to promote her musical "Nine," but Harvey Weinstein informed reporters she was ill with "some sort of food poisoning" and was seeing a doctor.
"Nine" also features Daniel Day-Lewis, Kate Hudson, Sophia Loren and Nicole Kidman.
Cruz, 35, also stars in Pedro Almodóvar's "Broken Embraces," which will premiere at Cannes on Tuesday.
Kate Winslet was overcome by emotion, Sean Penn gave an impassioned speech for civil rights, Penelope Cruz spoke beautifully in English and Spanish, and Heath Ledger's family left the audience teary-eyed -- you heard their acceptance speeches, now "Extra" gives you a look at the talented men and women who took home the Oscars!
Mickey Rourke took home the award for Best Actor at the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday -- and thanked his fans, co-stars and his late dog in a profanity-ridden speech!
"The Wrestler" star won the award for his portrayal of a washed-up wrestler in the critically acclaimed film -- and dedicated his award to his beloved pup Loki, who passed away last week. "I've just gotten thousands of letters from strangers and people that know me about my dog that died six days ago, Loki. This is for you, baby," said the actor. "The Wrestler" was the big winner of the evening, taking home awards for Best Feature and Best Cinematography.
"Milk," the inspirational true story about SF Supervisor Harvey Milk, also took home multiple awards, for Best Supporting Actor James Franco and Best First Screenplay, by writer Dustin Lance Black.
"Frozen River" star Melissa Leo took home the award for Best Actress, while Penélope Cruz took home the Best Supporting Actress award for her work in "Vicky Cristina Barcelona." Both women are up for the same awards in the Oscar race, which ends this evening at the 81st Annual Academy Awards.
From a clown-faced homicidal maniac to a disturbed San Francisco politician -- to a suspicious nun and a loving mother raising a son who's aging backward, these men and women nominated for Best Supporting Actor and Actress shined on the silver screen.
Tell "Extra" --
Awards season is a global event! Power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are among the nominees expected to attend the British Academy Film Awards in London on Sunday.
"Doubt" star Meryl Streep and "Vicky Cristina Barcelona's" Penelope Cruz are also nominated for their performances and are expected on the Royal Opera House red carpet.
The nominees almost mirror those of this year's Academy Awards. Jolie and Kate Winslet go head to head in the Leading Actress category. Pitt and Mickey Rourke are both nominated for Leading Actor.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) hosts the annual awards show that some consider to be the British equivalent to the Oscars.
The Bafta awards ceremony will be broadcast on BBC.
Oscar organizers warned nominees to stay alert during the ceremony on February 22. This awards show is breaking tradition!
The producers "are going to take some risks, many risks, some bold," said Sid Ganis, President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, at the annual luncheon on Monday.
Oscar nominees including Robert Downey, Jr., Penelope Cruz, Sean Penn and Anne Hathaway attended the luncheon at the Beverly Hilton.
Laurence Mark and Bill Condon are producers this year, and it's the first time either of them have produced the world's top film awards show. Mark has produced hits like "Jerry Maguire" and "Dreamgirls," which Condon wrote and directed.
People's Sexiest Man Alive Hugh Jackman will host the three-hour show, and an opening monologue has been cut for more spontaneity.
Ganis informed the nominees that if they win, to "be brief, be personal and, of course, be heartfelt." He also told them to "stay alert" because the producers are trying new things.
