The 2011 Academy Award Nominations are in! Here at Being Pregnant we have been all aflutter about pregnant Natalie Portman’s odds of winning the Best Actress category. We almost forgot that she is not the only nominee currently expecting a baby!
He may not be bringing his gestating bundle of joy on stage, but best actor Oscar nominee Javier Bardem is awaiting the birth of his first child with actress Penelope Cruz. I tried to do some math to figure out how far along Penelope Cruz is, and I can’t say I’m entirely sure. But if my finger counting skills are accurate, it is possible that we could have an extremely pregnant Penelope Cruz in the audience on Oscar night.
I wonder what she’ll wear?
Cruz is so gorgeous it’s hard to imagine her looking anything but incredible, even at 9 months along. But then again, it is hard to imagine anyone looking their best in those final weeks of pregnancy.
While Portman is in the second trimester peak of pregnancy cuteness, that sweet little bump generally morphs into something more bloblike and alien by the end. This requires some serious fashion consideration.
There is, of course, another possibility. We haven’t heard much about Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz lately, have we? You know those celebrities and their fudged due dates…for all we know the baby could be born by the time Oscar night arrives. In that case, you can bet that Penelope will be on the red carpet looking better than ever, no matter how recently she’s given birth. And if she can’t pull it together in the postpartum haze? She can always send her sister.
