Furthermore, last night, during a physical, in-person ceremony held in a Madrilenian theatre, which abided by the requisite health-and-safety measures recommended by the health authorities, it scooped three Feroz Awards (for Best Drama Film, Best Screenplay and Best Director) at the eighth edition of the prizes handed out by the Association of Spanish Film Journalists (AICE).
Thus, this portrait of the education that girls received in Spain during the decade of the 1990s has positioned itself as the clear favourite – with nine nominations – going into the ceremony for the Goya Awards, which is set to take place on Saturday 6 March in Málaga.
Another title that’s already being talked about as a dead cert for the ceremony on Saturday is The Year of the Discovery [+lire aussi :
