Grand designs in store for Penélope Cruz
Penélope Cruz has two contender films this season. Does that mean more red carpet gowns? Her adept portrayal of Javier Bardem's psychotically sexy ex in Woody Allen's "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" has already earned her a supporting actress Golden Globe nomination. And there's a smattering of buzz that her surprisingly layered turn as a student who becomes the erotic obsession of an infamous womanizer professor-literary critic ( Ben Kingsley) in "Elegy" may also earn her an Oscar nod.
