The Mexican actress recognizes her friend’s talent for 20 years, first nominated for an Oscar.

Mexican actress Salma Hayek has congratulated her friend Antonio Banderas in a very special way, who has been nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor for the movie ‘Dolor y Gloria’.


On her Instagram account, the actress posted an emotional message for Banderas, which says: ” After 20 years of meeting you, it’s great to see you’re still thriving, congratulations on your #Oscar nomination.”

Salma’s message accompanied a photograph of her with Antonio Banderas on the set of the movie ‘Desperado’.

The Oscars will be delivered on February 9 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

Banderas has a difficult competition for the statuette, as he competes with Leonardo DiCaprio (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes), Adam Driver (Marriage Story) and Joaquin Phoenix (Joker)
