Best actor, 'A Better Life'
“I got sick last night and so I tried to sleep as much as I could and then my girlfriend called,” Bichir said. “I actually thought it was part of the fever that I was hallucinating — but it is a great honor,” Bichir says of his best actor nom. “This is one of those powerful stories about a man raising a son alone. You usually see the mother staying and raising the kid. What made me crazy about this (movie) was that it was about a father sticking around to raise his son and give him a better life.”
