Now there's a sporting son: Javier Bardem takes mom Pilar to a FC Barcelona football game at their home stadium Camp Nou for a game against Atletico Madrid.
At last year's Academy Awards, Bardem took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his turn as the frightening Anton Chigurh in last year's Best Picture winner "No Country For Old Men." Classically, the Best Supporting Actor presents the next year's Best Supporting Actress trophy, but officially, no one knows if Bardem will show up--because the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has opted not to release the names of any presenters besides host Hugh Jackman. That may be because last year's campaign to tie America's longest awards with non-nominee presenters like Miley Cyrus resulted in the lowest ratings ever for the Oscar broadcast.
Still, with Bardem garnering a steady stream of praise for his supporting turn in the Woody Allen movie "Vicky Cristina Barcelona," he might even find himself on the nominees list again. Oscar nominations are expected to be announced next week.
