Terrible year for spanish cinema (none of this movie has gotten any revenue. They haven’t been profitable, the audiencie didn’t respond to them. And the critics and reviews also have been mediocre overall. This is the first time the spanish “leftie” press panned an Almodovar film by the way) and even more terrible nominations!!!
I’m only really happy with the nomination of Carlos Bardem for Best Supporting Actor for “Alacran Enamorado” . He really deserves it (and that movie deserved more love by the Spanish Academy. I mean… only this nomination, a nomination for Best Breakthough Actor and a nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay?). He was outstanding and I hope he wins.
I would also be happy if Terele Pavez get some recognition for her role in “Las brujas de Zugarramurdi”.
The rest of the candidates are just “bleh” to me. Overall the only movie that I like the most among the nominees is “15 años y un dia”… but is not a masterpiece anyway (actually, IMO is Gracia Querejeta’s worst. “Cuando vuelvas a mi lado” and “Hector”, that were more valuable films!!!).
This is a pity, since last year was a magnificent year for the spanish cinema (for both, the audience and the critics), but this is a year to forget. I’m not saying the spanish industry is dying, it’s just that this year has been BAAAD.
I predict this year not too much people is going to see the awards ceremony at the public TV channel . Last year was differentent: The spanish people actually saw the movies that were nominated (“The Impossible”, “Blancanieves”, “Grupo 7″…), they all recieved great reviews… and they also gave the honorary award to Concha Velasco (one of the biggest, if not the biggest star of cinema, television and theatre of the country of all times): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLjxKe-bWkMJanuary 8, 2014 at 8:04 am #129733
You have forgot to tell that now going to movies is really expensive with the “Decretazo”. Not only spanish movies, but all movies in general has drop considerably this year.
About Amodovar´s movie, it was a comedy to get money for some more important projects. It has not other intention. And saying that even the lefties panned Almodovar… it is a bit mean.
It is nice to see some comedy get some love in the nomination. I am surprised with Inma Cuesta´s nomination. And about Berto Romero getting that nomination is more for his work in TV than for the movie, where he is quite annoying and imho he is really BAD!
Something surprising is that this year there is 5 movies nominated instead of the 4. There was also a tie when they selected the movie for the oscars
Spanish cinema is in deathly danger with the actual government, specially with the minister who takes care about this subject. There is no more money for new projects and those which get money are from directors that supports the most conservative points of view.January 8, 2014 at 9:45 am #129734
You know… I think it’s better for both of us to not discuss/argue about all that “government thing”. Because I’m afraid we are not going to agree and we are going to get angry with each other.
I respect your opinion, but I don’t share it.January 8, 2014 at 3:28 pm #129735
Well, i agree to you that politics should be away on this forums, but it should be remarked to people outside Spain, how expensive movies are now. However, it is also true that “The Impossible” got many people to the movie theaters even with that increase.
Besides, It is a fact about the bad relationship between some group of people in the spanish cinema sector and several ministers in the goverment.
Spanish Film Academy is well known for its own politics. Some regarding the selection of the film which compete for the oscars. And “Goyas” are famous for some big fights… “The Grandfather vs La niña de tus ojos”´s case… and Almodovar´s love/hate relationship.
And about if the show it will be boring, well i dont see a clear frontrunner… and i am surprised with the nominees… i´ve never thought about this line-up in the best actress… and in best actor, i will like that Javier Camara finally wins… the other three have won alreadyJanuary 11, 2014 at 6:30 am #129736
