‘Las Niñas Bien,’ ‘Araña,’ ‘Pain and Glory,’ vie for Platino Nominations

MEXICO CITY – “Las niñas bien” (The Good Girls), “Araña” and “Dolor y Gloria” (Pain and Glory) were among the films announced on Wednesday as contenders for nominations ahead of the 2020 Platino Xcaret Awards for Ibero-American Cinema.

The task of presenting the 20 pre-candidates in each category was entrusted to Maite Perroni, Humberto Busto, Erik Hayser, Ana Serradilla, Dario Yazbek, Omar Chaparro – who will host the May 3 awards gala in the Teatro Gran Tlachco at Parque Xcaret on Mexico’s Riviera Maya – and Natasha Dupeyron.

Over the next month, the number of competitors will be whittled down to four finalists per category.

For this seventh edition of the awards, hotel operator Xcaret has expanded its role from sponsor to co-organizer with the Spain-based Audiovisual Producers’ Rights Management Entity (EGEDA).

By country, Spain leads the 23-nation group with 67 pre-nominations, followed by Mexico with 53, while Argentina and Brazil each have 44.

The 2020 prizes include two new categories: best supporting actor/actress in a television series or mini-series, a nod to the growing importance of on-demand content platforms such as Netflix, HBO and Amazon Prime Video.

“Many things are being done, many more than before. Thanks to the opening provided by the platforms, there is work for everybody,” Serradilla told EFE.

“We are in a great moment,” Hayser said. “Increasingly, we have better products to offer the rest of the world.”

Mexico’s entries for best Ibero-American feature are “Las niñas bien,” by Alejandra Marquez Abella, and Gael Garcia Bernal’s “Chicuarotes.” Both men are also vying for best director.

Pedro Almodovar, for “Dolor y gloria,” is in the running for best director, along with fellow Spaniards Alejandro Amenabar, for “Mientras dure la guerra” (While at War); and Jon Garaño, Aitor Arregi and Jose Mari Goenaga, for “La trinchera infinita” (The Endless Trench).

For best actor, Mexico put forward Joaquin Cosio (“Belzebuth”) and Damian Alcazar, the protagonist of “El complot mongol” (The Mongolian Conspiracy), while Spain is represented by Antonio Banderas (“Dolor y gloria”), Antonio de la Torre (“La trinchera infinita”) and Karra Elejalde (“Mientras dure la guerra”).

Mexicans Gabriela Cartol, for “La camarista” (The Chambermaid), and Ilse Salas, for “Las niñas bien,” hope to be among the finalists for best actress, along with Spain’s Belen Cuesta (“La trinchera infinita”) and Marta Nieto (“Madre”).

Last month, “Dolor y gloria” was the big winner at the Goya Awards, Spain’s equivalent Oscars, collecting seven trophies.
