The Spanish-Australian production “Canceled”, shot during the harshest months of the coronavirus pandemic, has won five awards, including best series of 2020, from the British Web Awards.
The web series tells the story of the actress Valencian María Albiñana and the director Australian filmmaker Luke Eve, who had to cancel their wedding in Valencia at the last minute due to the coronavirus and lock yourself in an apartment with your mother-in-law, which led them to record a series during confinement starring them.
The British Web Awards have recognized “Canceled” with the awards for best actor (Luke Eve), Best Actress (María Albiñana), Best Screenplay (Luke Eve and María Albiñana), Best Editing (Melanie Annan) and best series of 2020.
The award ceremony, which collect the best of online content in the international arena, has been held this weekend virtually, as is customary in the festivals of audiovisual, due to the pandemic.
As sources from the series have explained this Wednesday, the head of the British Web Awards, Chris Hembury, stressed that “Canceled” is “a series that will age extraordinarily”, because “what Luke and Maria and the whole team managed to do is capture a unique moment in history.”
“Canceled” has achieved in recent months more than two million views on Facebook and several awards, and is the only Spanish production, with the HBO series “En Casa”, nominated for the prestigious international Rose D’Or awards, which are held on December 9, also via the internet.
