Best Actress Oscar nominee Penélope Cruz (for Volver) takes a moment away from her new constant companion Orlando Bloom to pair up with Melanie Griffith at the Entertainment Weekly pre-Oscars bash in Beverly Hills on Thursday. Griffith, a past Oscar nominee herself (for 1988's Working Girl), hosted the evening with her husband (and Cruz's fellow countryman) Antonio Banderas.
