Penélope Cruz and Kirsten Dunst are making history at the 2022 Oscars

Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem live a quiet life with their two children in Madrid. Still, this year at the Oscars, they are making history–along with Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons.

The 2022 Oscars will make the first time in history two real-life couples have been nominated for Academy Awards at the same time.

Cruz, 47, has been nominated for Best Actress for her role in Parallel Mothers. Her husband, Javier Bardem, is competing in the Best Actors category for his role in Being the Ricardos.

The couple, who wed in 2010, met on the set of the film Jamón, Jamón in 1992, but it wasn’t until 2007 that they began dating.

“I don’t know if we were shy or trying to be too professional,” he said in a British GQ interview in 2017: “Anyway, it got to the very last day of filming, and nothing had happened. So I thought, ‘F–k! We better get drunk!’ Luckily a friend of ours threw a wrap party, and, well, the rest is history.”

2022 isn’t the first time the talented couple has been honored at the Oscars. In 2008, Bardem won Best Performance by An Actor in a Supporting Role for No Country for Old Men. In 2009, Cruz won Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
