The Spanish Academy of Film Arts and Sciences (Academia de las Artes y Ciencias Cinematográficas de España) announced today the nominees for its annual Goya Awards which have an important Latin American component. The Mexican/Spanish co-production Biutiful by Alejandro González Iñárritu earned eight nominations to the Awards, none for Best Film or Director though; whilst the film Lope directed by Brazilian filmmaker Andrucha Waddington was nominated for seven awards mostly in the technical categories, including the nomination for Best Song for Que el soneto nos tome por sorpresa composed by Uruguayan musician Jorge Drexler.
Additionally Iciar Bollaín‘s film También la lluvia / Even the Rain, shot in Bolivia and starring Gael García Bernal, was nominated for awards -none for the Mexican actor though. For Best Latin American Film, four films have been nominated: Contracorriente / Undertow by Javier Fuentes-León (Peru); El hombre de al lado / The Man Next Door by Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat (Argentina); El infierno / Hell by Luis Estrada; and La vida de los peces / The Life of Fish by Matías Bize. The awards ceremony for the Goya Awards will take place on Sunday, February 13 in Madrid, Spain.
