Spanish Goya Awards Honor BLANCANIEVES, THE IMPOSSIBLE And Even JUAN OF THE DEAD

Brian Clark, European Editor

The Impossible may have broken every box office record imaginable in Spain, but the stylized, silent film retelling of Snow White, Blancanieves, wiped the floor with the competition at the Spanish equivalent of the Oscars. Pablo Berger's film walked away with ten awards, which seem well-deserved considering all the love the film has won from audiences and critics this past year. Those critics include our own Shelagh M. Rowan Legg, who called it, "a story dripping in sensuous, gorgeous wonder." As you'll see below, most of the major categories went to either Berger's film or The Impossible, but the Spanish also showed some love for Juan of the Dead, giving it the prize for Best Ibero-American film.
