"Congratulations, Antonio! Academy Award Nomination for Best Actor! I am so happy for you, and so proud of you. Bravo Guapo. Xoxo."

Some followers dropped heart-shaped emojis, while others used the fire emoji. One person described the post as "Sweet," while another wrote that the actor deserves to win.

They were married for nearly 20 years, and share a daughter, Sarah Banderas

Banderas' nomination is the first-ever he has gotten in a movie career spanning several decades. The dad-of-one got the Oscar nod for his role in the film, "Pain and Glory;" he played the role of an aged movie director going through a creative crisis.

TOUGH BUT IN HIGH SPIRITS

The actor is vying for the coveted award alongside Leonardo Di Caprio, Joaquin Phoenix, Adam Driver, and Jonathan Pryce. The leading actor award is highly competitive, but Banderas seems relaxed about it.

The actor got photographed dressed in a black biker jacket, white polo, blue jeans, and brown boots while walking the streets of Malaga after the Oscar nod. He was evidently in high spirits and had a smile on his face.

The actor has gotten nominated for several awards in the past, and while he won some, he lost others. In 2018, after losing an Emmy nomination for his role in "Genius," Griffith was there to support him.

The former couple had divorced at the time; they were married for nearly 20 years, and share a daughter, Sarah Banderas. The "Legend of Zorro" star once told ET that the "Working Girl" actress is, and will always be his family.

He also described the mother of his only child as his best friend, and they always have each other's back. Thus, win or lose the Oscar Awards, Griffith will be there to support Banderas.
