The Goya Awards, known in Spanish as los Premios Goya, are Spain's main national film awards, considered the Spanish equivalent to the American Academy Awards. The awards were established in 1987, a year after the founding of the Academia de las Artes y las Ciencias Cinematográficas de España, and the first awards ceremony took place on March 16, 1987 at the Teatro Lope de Vega, Madrid.
The ceremony continues to take place annually around the end of January, and awards are given to films produced during the previous year. The award itself is a small bronze bust of Francisco de Goya created by the sculptor José Luis Fernández.

XXVI GOYA AWARDS - Chances for the Best Film category
Four films will be competing this Sunday to obtain as many Goya Awards as possible.
The most international of all of them and recent BAFTA winner is Pedro Almodóvar´s The Skin I live In. It has also the highest number of nominations with 16. However I think that No habrá paz para los malvadoshas a better chance to get the precious Goya. It´s my feeling and I´m supporting this feeling in all the awards the film is wining in Spain. Let´ s say that when Almodóvar triumphs abroad Urbizu wins at home.
La voz dormida is a drama during the Spanish civil war and there are very good actors, three of them nominees but there is a “been there seen that” idea that runs against it. Director Benito Zambrano already won a Goya for Solas, his first film.
The fourth film in the fight is Blackthorn and it has Sam Shepard as Butch Cassidy leading the cast and it´s a western. Blacthorn was not a great boxoffice success but it has 11 nominations anyway. Directed by Mateo Gil, he has already won 3 Goyas when he was a screenwriter and another one for a shortfilm.
The answer on Sunday 19th February .We´ll be reporting live from Madrid. You can follow us in twitter @GoyaAwardsF21
