"Sea Inside" sweeps 14 out of 15 Spanish film awards

Oscar-nominated "The Sea Inside/Mar Adentro" completely swept aside any competition at Spain’s 19th annual Goya Awards ceremony on Sunday night, winning no less than 14 awards in the 15 categories in which it was nominated. Director Alejandro Amenabar’s moving tale picked up awards as Best Original Screenplay, Music and Make-Up as well as awards for each of the principal cast. This record-breaking run meant that Pedro Almodovar's "Bad Education/La Mala Educacion" and others were left in their seats.

In other sections, "Motorcycle Diairies" won as best adapted script, best foreign Spanish-language film winners were Uruguay's Pablo Stoll and Juan Pablo Rebella for "Whisky". Fatih Akin’s "Head-On" won best European film. Veteran actor Jose Luis Lopez Vazquez was this year’s Goya of Honour recipient.
