'Camino' enjoys six of the best at Goyas

JAVIER Fesser's "Camino" has won six Goya awards, including best movie, director, actress and supporting actor in Spain's version of the Oscars.

"Camino," a critique of the Opus Dei religious order, also won best original screenplay and new actress categories.

The award for best new female talent went to Nerea Camacho for her part as Camino, an infirm and visionary girl, while Jordi Dauder won best supporting actor recognition for his role of Don Luis.

"I'm not here because I'm the best, I'm here because I'm very lucky," said Fesser on receiving the best director Goya.

Benicio del Toro won the best actor statuette for his role as revolutionary icon Ernesto "Che" Guevara in Steven Soderbergh's "Che, el argentino."

"I want to thank Sean Penn, who is doing a lot to promote this movie in the United States. It's important this film is seen in the US," said del Toro.

The best actress category was held aloft by Carmen Elias for her role as Gloria, Camino's mother.

Penelope Cruz took the statuette for best supporting actress for her role as painter Juan Antonio Gonzalo's volatile girlfriend, Maria Elena, in Woody Allen's romantic comedy "Vicky Cristina Barcelona." "I've always been a great fan of Woody Allen," said Cruz as she accepted the award. "Thank you Woody for believing in me."

Cruz, who appears alongside Javier Bardem, Scarlett Johansson and Rebecca Hall in the movie shot in the Catalan capital, has also been nominated for a best supporting actress Oscar.

Palme d'Or winner "4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days," written and directed by Cristian Mungiu of Romania, took the best European film prize.

The best Latin American movie award went to Chilean director Andres Wood's "La Buena Vida."

The best new director category was claimed by Spaniard Santiago Zanou for "El truco del manco."

An honorary Goya for a life dedicated to cinema was given to veteran film maker Jesus Franco.
