Enrique Urbizu’s police thriller No Habrá Paz Para Los Malvados (No Rest For The Wicked) took best picture, best director, original screenplay, editing, sound and best actor for José Coronado. Urbizu beat out Pedro Almodovar in the directing category although the Spanish master’s The Skin I Live In earned the best actress prize for Elena Anaya as well as honors for music, make-up and best new actor Jan Cornet. Another multiple winner was Mateo Gil’s Blackthorn, a western with an international cast that includes Sam Shepard, Eduardo Noriega and Stephen Rea. The film took production design, cinematography, artistic direction and costume design. Also scoring wins were Kike Maíllo’s Eva, which earned the best new director prize and war drama La Voz Dormida (The Sleeping Voice) for original song, supporting actress (Ana Wagener) and best new actress (Maria Leon). The Artist also picked up yet another prize, this time for best European film.
