‘Pain and Glory’ sweeps Spanish Academy Goya Awards [Winners’ List]

Published




Pedro Almodovar’s Oscar-nominated “Pain and Glory” was the big winner at the 34th Goya Awards, Spain’s top film honours, held in Malaga on Saturday night, going home with seven awards including best actor for Antonio Banderas, best director for Almodovar and best film.

Banderas, who first collaborated with Almodovar in 1982’s “Labyrinth of Passion”, thanked the director for their nearly 40 years of collaboration.

“I have learnt so much from you, not only about art but about life…I’ve done my best work with you,” Banderas said while collecting the award, adding he hoped the pair would continue to work together in the future.

The win puts “Pain and Glory”, about an ageing film director, as a strong favourite for the best international feature film Oscar, while Banderas will go up against actors including Joaquin Phoenix and Leonardo DiCaprio in the best actor category at the ceremony held in Los Angeles on February 9.

Penelope Cruz, who also stars in Almodovar’s film, lost out in the race for best actress, which went to Belen Cuesta for “The Endless Trench”.

“Pain and Glory’s” other wins included best-supporting actress for Julieta Serrano and best original screenplay for Almodovar.

Alejandro Amenabar’s Spanish Civil War drama “While at War” won five awards including best-supporting actor for Eduard Fernandez.

The ceremony was attended by Spanish political as well as acting royalty – Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez was in the audience and was singled out several times by presenters and winners – including Almodovar – who urged him to do more to protect culture and cinema in Spain.

The award for best European film went to France’s “Les Misérables”, while Argentina’s “Heroic Losers” won best Latin American Film.
