On 7 February, RTVE will offer live coverage of the Annual Gala for the Goya Awards, the most important recognition within the realm of Spanish cinema. Two hours prior to the Awards themselves, we will watch all the nominees walk the red carpet and offer us their comments.
This year, 40 candidates for the Awards will have taken part in pictures featuring the participation of TVE. We might highlight nine candidates from "Relatos salvajes", seven from "Magical girl" and six from "Mortadelo y Filemón contra Jimmy el cachondo". "La isla minima" and "El Niño" are the films that have received the largest numbers of nominations, 17 and 16 respectively.
To these nominations, we must also add the Honorary Goya that will be presented to the actor, Antonio Banderas, as part of a grand gala hosted by the actor, Dani Rovira.

Tell Me How It Happened
In June 1983, Tierno Galván's re-election as Mayor of Madrid provides a reason for jubilation for the young people who make up the social and cultural movement known as "La Movida", who see it as an opportunity to give a boost to arts and culture. Meanwhile, in San Genaro, Antonio is already living with Mercedes under the same roof. They must both adapt to the new situation and search for consensus on everyday matters. Something similar applies to "Rosa Chillón", who need a poster for the group but cannot agree about it. For her part, Inés is still in financial straits, whilst Miguel feels a little excluded from Paquita's life.
This week, to mark the presentation of the Goya Awards, "Versión española" has chosen a very special film: "Chico y Rita", directed by Fernando Trueba. This film received a Goya for Best Animated Film in 2011.
Cuba, 1948. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unites them, but their journey - in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero - brings heartache and torment. From Havana to New York, Paris, Hollywood and Las Vegas, two passionate individuals battle impossible odds to unite in music and love.
Ana Luna, Carlos, Noa and Jacobo visit the contestants in order to spur them on in the final challenges. The contestants will have to cook a dish with ingredients that children do not normally like at all. The best chef in this test will be the first Finalist of the season. In the Vicente Calderón Stadium, each contestant will cook a dish on a menu that is designed to replenish the strength of the young sportsmen from the Atlético de Madrid School, as well as four footballers from the club: Moyá, Siqueira, David Gil and Héctor.
