There will be no Goya for the series and they will not be at the Academy


Almost all candidates to replace Mariano Barroso at the head of the institution agree on this measure

The series will have a very hard time competing in any particular category of the Goya Awards and gaining a foothold in the Film Academy. And it is that in the veto of these productions in the cinema and in their awards coincide almost all the candidates to replace Mariano Barroso at the head of the institution that watches over our cinema in the elections of June 4.

That was revealed yesterday in an act in which the candidates led by Valérie Delpierre won the Goya Award 2018 for best short documentary; Luisa Gavasa, Goya in 2016 for Best Supporting Actress for ‘The Bride’, the Director of Photography Teresa Medina; and the director, screenwriter and film critic Fernando Méndez-Leite.

“It is very positive that there are infrastructures that give work to the technicians, but when we talk about integrating candidacies for the best series in the Goya, we are not in favor. There are places for these series and they certainly don’t have to coexist in the Film Academy,” said Delpierre. Rafael Portela, of the Méndez-Leite candidacy, said the Academy’s “task” is “fighting for cinema”. “This debate had been going on in the Academy for a while and it was decided that we were cinema,” he said.

Screenwriter Virginia Yagüe (from Gavasa’s candidacy) also chose to focus on cinema “where there is still much to do”. “This is the home of Spanish cinema,” he said. Medina’s candidacy was the only one not to speak out on the controversial issue in a “complex debate” that has come a long way.
