Married couple and frequent collaborators Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz also received nominations, with Bardem telling Deadline he's rooting for Cruz especially.
Best actress nominee Nicole Kidman and her husband, Keith Urban, had a cute red carpet moment, too. Kidman told ABC that Urban flew over from Las Vegas at 1 a.m. that morning just to be there with her.
