‘The good boss’ wins at the Forqué Awards






The good boss confirms that she is the big favorite for this year’s film awards and hits first by winning the Forqué Awards held at the IFEMA Conference Center in Madrid. The awards given by Egeda, an entity that manages the rights of audiovisual producers, have also recognized the police Iron for best television series. The gala, presented by Elena Sanchez Y Marga Hazas, has celebrated the 80s with performances by Javier Gurruchaga, Burning, Modestia Apart or Fangoria.

The satire on labor relations of Fernando Leon de Aranoa, which has the participation of RTVE, has won the award for Best Film and Best Actor for its protagonist, Javier Bardem. Neither of them has attended the gala because they are in the US campaigning for the film to be chosen for the Oscar for Best International Film. The one that is clearer is the campaign in Spain: after beating the record for nominations in the Goya, the Forqué reinforces its status as chosen for the Academy Awards.

Maixabel, from Iciar Bollain, the true story of the encounter between ETA victims and terrorists, was the film that started with the most nominations and takes two: Best Actress for Blanca Portillo and Prize to the cinema in education in values. The actress, who imposed herself on Penelope Cruz (Parallel mothers), has remembered on stage the character he plays, Maixabel Lasa, and the late novelist Almudena Grandes. “As Almudena Grandes used to say, there is no love without admiration. I deeply admire you, so I love you. I had to tell the story of an incredible woman, Maixabel Lasa is an angel. And thanks to Luis Tosar’s eyes for doing 75% of the work for me. “

Iron dominate series categories

Iron, the detective fiction of Pepe Chur, also obtained a double triumph in the series categories (added since the previous edition of the awards): Best series and Best female performance for Candela Peña, for her role as a ruthless judge. The series has been imposed on Stories to not sleep, The Fortune Y Fagot lost.

Candela Peña, adds up and goes on (two months ago he won the Platinum Award for Rosa’s wedding), has dedicated its award to the producers “It is the first time that I come to the Forqué. You may not like me very well, but do not be afraid of the actors and actresses”. JAvier Camera, that in the Forqué 2021 won the award for best male performance for SentimentaHe, repeated this year in the category of series for political comedy Come on Juan.

Candela Peña, Forqué Award for Best Female Serial Performance

The emotional note has been left by the actor and director Miguel Angel Muñoz, awarded the Best Documentary for 100 days with the Tata, where he portrays his coexistence with his grandmother during confinement. “My father is 97 years old. There are very difficult moments in which she already asks the Lord to take her away and I tell her that, perhaps, it takes so long to teach us how to grow old, how to accept that one is no longer so independent and live it with joy”.

The producer Jose Antonio Félez, Gold Medal of the awards, claimed the figure of the producer as a creative element in the process of audiovisual productions. “In a time of rapid change, it is important to look for original stories. The demand has grown exponentially and I think the presence of independent producers is essential”.

Lastly, the award for Best Latin American film went to Fire night, by Tatiana Huezo, while the best short film has achieved it The invisible monsterby Javier and Guillermo Fesser.
