Not sure about Bichir either (I saw the Italian-dubbed version of his movie). Was his performance completely in Spanish?
His performance was entirely in Spanish.
Nope, Bichir's performance was primarily in English.
I need to see this again. I haven't seen it since it came out. Thinking more about it, I was wrong to say Bichir's performance was entirely in Spanish, but my recollection of it is that he spoke mostly in Spanish. Wikipedia lists him as one of 33 actors and actresses to have been nominated for a performance largely in a foreign language, some of them more than once. Melina Mercouri was the first for 1960's Never on Sunday, Marion Cottilard the last to date for 2014's Two Days, One Night.
