Penélope Cruz is going to have to expand her prize cabinet again. The Ministry of Culture and Sports has unanimously decided to award him the 2022 National Film Award for “the successes harvested in 2021, which join all those collected in an exceptional trajectory”. Exceptional, and indisputable. The strange thing is that she did not have this award yet.
The jury of the prize wants to pay homage to “one of the visible heads” of the 90’s generation, “which meant a renewal for Spanish cinema”. They highlight “his enormous talent and versatility” which has led him to work with the most influential filmmakers in our country and abroad. The prize is accompanied by an endowment of 30,000 euros. About her they note: “Committed to her craft, she seeks excellence in her work, thanks to which she has created some of the most unforgettable characters in the history of our cinema. For all these reasons, Penélope Cruz is an iconic actress whose brilliant legacy enriches the Spanish cultural heritage”.
‘Parallel mothers’ continues to give you joy
Last year was great for the Madrilenian, largely thanks to Pedro Almodóvar’s ‘Parallel Mothers’. His last collaboration with the manchego (for now) earned him the Volpi Cup at the Venice Film Festival and earned him his fourth Oscar nomination, which she lost to Jessica Chastain. She was also nominated for a Goya and a Feroz for Best Actress, as well as being chosen by a bunch of associations as one of the best performances of 2021. Cruz has already won an Oscar and three Goyas.
The last film that he has released in cinemas has been ‘Official Competition’ with Antonio Banderas. In September, we will see her together with Luis Tosar and Adelfa Calvo in ‘In the margins’, directed by Juan Diego Botto. He also stars in ‘L’immensità’ by Emanuele Crialese and will be part of the cast of ‘Ferrari’ by Michael Mann.
