Hayek Forced Sleepy Cruz To Watch Oscar Nominations

PENELOPE CRUZ was forced to watch the Oscar nominations last week (22Jan09), after a sleepover at pal SALMA HAYEK's house - despite fearing it would jinx her chances of landing a nod. almost missed the news she had been nominated for an Best Supporting Actress Academy Award; after Cruz slept over at Hayek's Los Angeles pad on 21 January (09) after jetting into the city late the night before.
Before she'd had the chance to get a good night's sleep, the Frida star had hauled her pal out of bed and propped her up in front of a TV screen for the nail-biting live news conference.
The Spanish star tells Usmagazine.com, "I had just arrived to Los Angeles very, very late at night, and I had went to sleep (sic).
"Four hours later, I was at the house of some of my girlfriends, and they woke me up. Actually, it was Salma Hayek. She woke me up and said, 'We have to watch it live!' I said, 'That's such a big risk!'"
But the news was good, and Cruz was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress prize for her role in Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
She adds, "We watched and then I heard the news - everything goes so fast! An hour later, you have to start doing all these interviews and then you spend all day working. I haven't had the time yet to digest or understand it."
