Goya Awards

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.

Champions and The Realm winners at the Goya Awards

             The 33rd edition of the Spanish Academy of Film Arts and Sciences Awards, aka The Goyas, took place in Sevilla. Surpringly, the film winning all major categories didn´t get the Goya for Best Film.

The political thriller The Realm by Rodrigo Sorogoyen – co-produced with France – ended up with seven Goyas: including Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor (Galician Luis Zahera) and Best Lead Actor (Antonio de la Torre).

Although, one of the biggest surprises on the night was that Champions by Javier Fesser, a title that has enjoyed a great deal of mainstream success (having grossed €20 million so far), emerged triumphant as the best feature of 2018, given that it is a comedy, a genre that does not traditionally receive the official top prizes.

Champions received three awards: Best Film, Best Song (composed by Coque Malla) and Best New Actor, for first-timer Jesús Vidal. Another film that stood out at the ceremony was Carmen & Lola by Arantxa Echevarría, which took home two statuettes: Best Supporting Actress (Carolina Yuste) and Best New Director.

At the ceremony, which was attended by Minister of Culture José Guirao, was watched by four million viewers on the channel TVE and paid tribute to the Honorary Goya Award winner, Chicho Ibáñez Serrador with a video directed by Juan Antonio Bayona.
