india Updated: Feb 25, 2008 08:40 IST

Javier Bardem became the first ever Spanish winner of an acting Oscar in Hollywood on Sunday, picking up the best supporting actor award for his portrayal of a psychopathic hitman in No Country for Old Men.

Bardem, 38, had been the overwhelming favorite for the statuette after a clean sweep of other major awards heading into the Oscars.

Bardem's performance as the killer who likes to execute his victims with a slaughterhouse cattle gun has been hailed as an iconic portrait of evil likely to become a cinematic landmark.
