“In these awards one feels in two ways, and one of them is very fragile. My filmography has been marked by having a mother from La Mancha with a culture based on survival and a lack of prejudice when it comes to taking initiatives”, she shared in her speech, in which she was moved and admitted that “cinema many times it is the best therapy and the best reflection of your future”.

Pedro Almodóvar also wanted to make a plea in defense of public health in Spain: “The health problems of Spaniards affect us all regardless of whether some of us have the opportunity to go to private health. This applause is for the toilets we applauded during the pandemic. What they are experiencing endangers one of our pillars of our society”.

María Guerra, has vindicated the “quinqui” side of the awards and has recalled that the critics who award them only accompany the journey that involves telling the public about the works: films and series that are “truly transformative”.
