I had a lot of expectations when I learned that Penélope Cruz would be the host of the Javier Bardem San Sebastian Festival to sign up for Donostia Prize. It is impossible to get around this without an embargo. The film festival awarded the actor the highest recognition, but also decided not to focus on the skin color of Hollywood actors. However, it states that yes he will get it in 2024nothing bothers him.

The Spanish actor is also the face of the Festival’s official poster, returning home to some of the most eminent figures in cinema every year. The poster’s design pays tribute to the chameleon-like ability of his interpretations. The ceremony for awarding the prestigious galardon coincided with the 30th anniversary Javier Bardem’s first visit to the festival, based on the production of “Huevos de oro” directed by Bigas Luna, in the official section in 1993. Pilar Bardem’s son is the sixth Spanish actor to receive the honorary award. Before you do this, Fernando Fernan Gomez (1999), Paco Rabal (2001), Antonio Banderas (2008), Carmen Maura (2013) Penelope Cruz (2019).

The day Penelope Cruz received the Donostia Award

In 2019, a visibly emotional Penélope Cruz won the Donostia Award at the San Sebastian Film Festival. A unique moment when Bono, singer of the group U2, crawled for a gift of galardon. In that conversation, the actress admitted that from now on she has always been a big dreamer. Her two dreams were to become a mother and to devote herself to interpretation. “I dedicate this award to my loved ones, my children. And to my husband Javier. the most wonderful travel companion you could ever have. Yes, this was also in my dream,” I continued to decide.
