Penelope Cruz became the first Spanish-born actress to win an Oscar by taking the best supporting actress award on Sunday for her role as tempestuous artist Maria Elena in Woody Allen's romantic comedy "Vicky Cristina Barcelona."

Cruz, 34, thanked both Allen and Spanish film director Pedro Almodovar for their roles in shaping her career and dedicated the gold statuette to the actors from her country.

"Thank you Woody for trusting me with this beautiful character. Thank you for having written over all these years some of the greatest characters for women," she said.

With her Oscar win, Penelope Cruz, joins fellow actresses Dianne Wiest and Mira Sorvino in scoring best supporting-actress Oscars for their performances in Woody Allen films.

"I grew up in a place called Alcobendas, where this was not a very realistic dream," said Penelope Cruz as she made her acceptance speech for this 2009 Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

Dressed in a 60-year-old ivory Pierre Balmain vintage gown and fighting back tears, Penelope Cruz asked anyone had ever fainted while accepting an Oscar. "I might be the first one."
