He won the Oscar as Best Actor just four years later for Hector Babenco‘s “Kiss of the Spider Woman” (1985), playing a transgender inmate at a South American prison who forms a bond with his cellmate (Raul Julia), a political prisoner. The role brought him additional prizes at BAFTA and the Cannes Film Festival.

Brooks‘ “Broadcast News” (1987). He returned to the race 18 years later with a Best Supporting Actor nomination for a 10-minute cameo in David Cronenberg‘s “A History of Violence” (2005). In addition to his Academy Awards success, Hurt has also received Emmy nomination for “Damages” (Best Drama Supporting Actor in 2009) and “Too Big to Fail” (Best Movie/Mini Actor in 2011).
