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.

Mario Camus - Honorary Goya Award 2011

 Mario Camus - Honorary Goya Award 2011

This year the members of the Spanish Academy decided to give the Honorary Goya Award to the writer and director, Mario Camus.


Three times nominee to the Goya Awards, he won 1994 the Best Screenplay - Original (Mejor Guión Original) for Sombras en una Batalla.

 Mario Camus started studying Law, but left his studies to enter the IIEC (now EOC) in 1956, where he got a director's diploma in 1963 -with the training film El borracho (1962)- and, finally, ended up as a professor. He worked together with Carlos Saura in several screenplays during the early 60s (Golfos, Los (1962), Llanto por un bandido (1964)), and also directed some shorts. His first feature films were Los farsantes (1963) and _Young Sánchez (1963)_, a film about boxing - one of his passions - which won the Best Film Award at the Buenos Aires Film Festival in 1964. This way he started a 3-decade filmography full of great works. During these three decades he touched styles varying from romantic comedies and musicals to splendid adaptations from famous novels, as is the case of the prestigious TV series "Fortunata y Jacinta" (1979) (mini) or the film La colmena (1982), which won the Golden Bear Award at the Berlin Film Festival. In 1983 he was given the 'Medalla de Oro de las Bellas Artes' (Arts Gold Medal), and one year later he prepared his most successful work both with public and critic: Los santos inocentes (1984), an adaptation from the novel by Miguel Delibes. This film won the Best Actor Award for Francisco Rabal and Alfredo Landa (ex- aequo) at the Cannes Film Festival. It also won the 'Premio Nacional de Cinematografía' (National Cinematography Award) in 1985 and the 'Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts des Lettres' Award in 1986.

Camus's filmography combines films made with others with a more personal style, where he tells stories closer to him that let him go through less worn themes. That is the case of Con el viento solano (1967), Los pájaros de Baden-Baden (1975) or Los días del pasado (1978).

In the 90s he continued working with great actors and telling dramatic stories made up from complex characters living rebel or broken lives, or entering other genres like noir. Examples of this stage are La rusa (1987), Después del sueño (1992), Sombras en una batalla (1993) and Adosados (1996), a film which won the International Critic Award. He directed and wrote El color de las nubes(1997)In the last decade he wrote and directed La playa de los galgos (2002) and El prado de las estrellas (2007) being this his last film…so far.
