For the second time, the Goya leave Madrid. But, unlike the previous one, held in Barcelona in 2000, there will be Felipe VI, who was then Prince of Asturias and whom Pedro Almodóvar, from the stage, sang him the Happy Birthday.Nor will the president of the government repeat, Pedro Sánchez, He did step on the red carpet twice as leader of the opposition. So, as is tradition, if the leader of the opposition, who is now Pablo Casado, president of the PP. The rest of the authorities will not miss one and certainly go through the red carpet: Seville has turned this year with the cinema (hosted the European Film Gala in December), and as assured by the president of the Academy, Mariano Barroso: "We go where they want us." And at the entrance for the attendees there will be protesting red fans with the slogan #Niunamenos courtesy of Cima, the association of Mujeres Cineastas, to remember those murdered in sexist crimes. After the lack of control of the last edition, finally Cima has coordinated with the Academy to distribute the aventadores.
Of all this no television viewer will remember when the ceremony begins at 22.00. Duration of the gala, three hours, if the acknowledgments so allow. For this, Barroso has promised three last generation televisions courtesy of one of the sponsors to the three shortest speeches. In addition, they have contrived some gadgets so that the winners are concrete, that there are 28 Goyas to distribute.
The 33rd ceremony of the Spanish cinema awards will start -first novelty- with a long video of six minutes, followed by a monologue that everyone who has read it speaks wonders. There will be musical performances: Rosalía, James Rhodes It was already taking someone to invite him to play the piano at a gala patria with so much love song to Spain on social networks, and the trio Amaia Romero, Rozalén and Judit Neddermann, who will perform a piece about the four candidate songs of the Goya in her category.
Halfway through the gala a video made by Juan Antonio Bayona will honor the Goya of Honor of this edition, Chicho Ibáñez Serrador, and another audiovisual piece will remember the genre film. The gala is produced by the Film Academy with El Terrat, the Buenafuente company. As executive producer, Ana Amigo, who yesterday afternoon, from the rehearsals at the Palace of Congresses and Exhibitions of Seville (FIBES) talked about the incredible courtship and the interest that the City Council of the Andalusian capital has shown with the Academy to carry his house the Goya: "He made us an offer that we could not refuse".
On the stage, Amigo says that its embouchure is spectacular, which will help the decorative elements, and that in the scenography dominates the color red. "Remember the cinema of the fifties, with an immense pergola, with real red velvet curtains … Nothing is made of cardboard," he says. "The important thing," Amigo insists, "is that we should not forget the participants that this is a television show."
And as for the prizes, according to the sportsbook Sportium, you will win Champions, by Javier Fesser, which is paid 1.81 to 1 (it is the film that won the main prize of the Forqué, awards given by the producers, and was chosen to represent Spain at the Oscars), followed very closely by The kingdom, by Rodrigo Sorogoyen, who is 1.90 to 1.
