"We are going to focus on the gala as if it were a television program made by Andreu and me." This is how the humorist explained yesterday Silvia Abril the objective of the 33rd edition of the Goya Awards: "Try to turn that infinite delivery of prizes, which never ends, into something mined of pieces in our line". That is, full of humor. With the script prepared at 90%, and made by "the home team" of El Terrat, the producer of Andreu Buenafuente, both presenters define it as very familiar and full of surprises.
Although they have not wanted to reveal much of what is going to be seen at the gala on February 2, they have assured that they will look for the variation, the surprise and the "maximum of records". I could a priori It seems that Andreu Buenafuente, presenter of the program Late Motiv, would be in charge of conducting the ceremony, while Silvia Abril, her partner in all senses, would face the most comical part, but have made it clear that the gala will be distributed in a balanced way. It will be "a matter of elbowing", said Abril: "We are going to try to make it a thing of two, even though Andreu has more experience".
"It really does not give that feeling", qualifies Good source, who already presented the gala in the 24th and 25th edition. "She will not be the comic relief," he emphasizes, "but the possibilities multiply, because when you are alone, you are required much more." This time they will have each other. And the best? "The freedom of being able to kiss him in the mouth when everything went well", releases April. To what her husband can only respond funny: "But if you kiss everyone in the mouth".
But, why come back? "We owe this to Yvonne Blake," explains Abril. The president of the Film Academy, who died in July of last year due to a stroke, contacted the comedian for the 2018 gala. "I wanted a woman", but April was in the middle of filming. "So I explained that I could not, but I promised that we would be there the next year." And they have kept their word. "I think I self-invited," confesses Buenafuente to her partner's laughter, "and I let out something as if you want two I sign up."
"We have set ourselves a challenge as a marriage: to survive the gala of the Goya", confesses the actress. A challenge from which the humorous couple of the past year, Joaquín Reyes and Ernesto Sevilla, did not succeed. The solution? "A lot of petroleum jelly," laughs April. While Buenafuente asks to relativize: "It is a good moment to ask for general relaxation, we are going to cease hostilities because sometimes this country likes little." They just ask to have a good time at this movie festival: "Relax and enjoy".
