Javier Bardem Sneaks Shot At Trump While Presenting Award

When presenting the award for Best Foreign Film, alongside Angela Basset, Javier Bardem took the chance to get political.

In Spanish, the “Skyfall” actor said, “There are no borders or walls that can restrain ingenuity and talent.”

He then continued, “In any region of any country of any continent, there are always great stories that move us. And tonight we celebrate the excellence and importance of the cultures and languages of different countries.”

They then presented the award to the Mexican film, “Roma.”

It wasn’t the only jab at Trump, with Maya Rudolph teasing about how tonight there is no host of the Oscars and some of the other issues the awards have faced.

“Just a quick update for everybody in case you’re confused. There is no host tonight…There won’t be a popular movie category — and Mexico is not paying for the wall.”

Trump has been uncharacteristically quiet during the awards, not tweeting a single thing (for the moment).

His son, on the other hand, distastefully tweeted out the “nominees for best performance in a politically motivated hate hoax” including Jussie Smollet, Nathan Phillips, and Christine Ford.
