The Netflix drama ‘Adú,’ directed by Salvador Calvo, is the frontrunner for the 35th Goya, Spain’s top film honors, with 14 nominations, including for best film and best director. 

The Netflix drama Adú, directed by Salvador Calvo, is the frontrunner for the 35th Goya Awards, Spain’s top film honors, with 14 nominations, including for best film and best director.

Calvo’s sophomore feature follows three interconnected stories all set in Africa. Two members of its ensemble cast Álvaro Cervantes and  Adam Nourou, picked up Goya nominations for best supporting actor and best newcomer actor, respectively.

The Goya 2021 best film nominees include Ane Is Missing from David Pérez Sañudo, Icíar Bollaín’s La boda de Rosa (Rosa’s Wedding), Pilar Palomero’s The Girls, and The People Upstairs aka Sentimental, from director Cesc Gay. In addition to Calvo and Bollaín, the best director category this year includes Juanma Bajo Ulloa,  nominated for his horror thriller Baby, and veteran filmmaker Isabel Coixet for It Snows in Benidorm.

Up for best European film at the Goyas are Jan Komasa’s Polish drama Corpus Christi, Florian Zeller’s Brit drama The Father, Viggo Mortensen’s Falling, and An Officer and a Spy from Roman Polanski.

Contenders for the best Ibero-American film include Chilean documentary The Mole Agent, Forgotten We’ll Be from Columbian filmmaker Fernando Trueba, the Guatemalan horror film The Curse of la Llorona, and Fernando Frias’ Mexican drama I’m No Longer Here.

Last year, Pedro Almodóvar’s semi-autobiographical drama Pain and Glory was the big winner at the Goyas, winning seven honors, including for best picture, director, original screenplay, and best actor for Antonio Banderas.

The 2021 Goya Awards will be held in a live-streamed ceremony from the Teatro del Soho CaixaBank in Málaga on Saturday, March 6.  The Málaga-born Banderas will direct this year’s award ceremony and will present the 35th Goya Awards together with Spanish journalist María Casado.
