Do you remember Catalina Sandino? Lets back in time, 2005 where a Colombian Actress was nominated to the Oscars, Do you remember the movie?. She had the principal roll in Maria full of grace. It was a great movie. You could feel the suspense and the reality of hundreds of people watching this movie.
“I know! It’s crazy. I would never even in my wildest dreams thought of being nominated for an Oscar for the first movie. I thought it was going to be on cable, not on the movies, not in the theatres…you know it’s just insane.”
She was in many magazines around the world, many people was asking who was this lady that from one day to other one got super famous. Colombia was so proud to have for the first time a Colombian nominated as best Actress, even many people was thinking that she will be the new Penelope Cruz or Salma Hayek.
