Penelope Cruz was the special guest yesterday at a lunch honoring her performance in Nine at LA's L'Ermitage hotel. Her role in the musical has earned her nominations at a variety of awards shows so far this season, but Penelope has yet to take home any gold. It's hard to top her Oscar-winning 2009, though we'll find out on February 2 if she's up for an Academy Award again this year. Penelope doesn't appear too stressed about winning or losing, as she seems focused on enjoying her beach vacations and basketball date nights with Javier Bardem.
