Ariel Awards 2014: THE GOLDEN CAGE Dominates Mexican Oscars

Diego Quemada-Díez's debut film The Golden Cage (La Jaula de Oro), a drama about Central American immigrants travelling to the United States, won big at the 56th edition of the Ariel Awards, the Mexican equivalent of the Oscars.

After having a successful presentation at last year's Cannes Film Festival, where it won the A Certain Talent Prize for Ensemble Cast, The Golden Cage was released in Mexican movie theaters just this month and it's still playing in some. The Golden Cage took home nine Ariel Awards, including Best Film, Actor, and Original Screenplay.

Amat Escalante, another Cannes 2013 Mexican winner, got the Best Director Ariel Award for Heli, while Quebranto was cited for best doc. Few surprises overall really, and perhaps the most shocking thing is that a turd like Cinco de Mayo, La Batalla is now a multiple Ariel winner! Anyway, here's the complete list of winners:
