SPAIN comes away without a Golden Globe as Almodóvar and Banderas leave the awards empty-handed.

La Mancha lost to South Korean’s Bong Joon-ho and Banderas could not beat Joaquin Phoenix.

Unfortunately for Spain, Almodóvar didn’t get the statuette for Best Foreign Language Film for ‘Pain and Glory’ nor Antonio Banderas for Best Dramatic Actor for the same title.

The first said award, as the bookies predicted, went to Bong Joon-ho’s ‘Parasites’.

Pain and Glory’ began its American journey at the Toronto Film Festival. Since then, both the actor and the director have committed themselves to an intense promotional campaign in Hollywood.

And despite Cannes showing a preference for Pain and Glory and the internationally acclaimed Banderas, the main rival of the year ‘Joker’ wasn’t released until the Venice Film Festival.

The American’s performance, which has been one of the most applauded of the year, gave him his second Golden Globe after the one he won in 2006.

Banderas himself has been previously nominated for the Golden Globes, on four other occasions – for his roles in ‘Evita’, ‘The Mask of the Fox’ and the TV shows ‘Pancho Villa’ and ‘Genius’

2019 has been a year of extensive international projection for the Malaga actor. Two years after suffering a heart attack, Banderas has returned to the forefront of cinematic conversation and, although he has been left without a Golden Globe, he will be able to console himself with his European Film Award and, probably, with the Goya.
