Alfonso Cuaron’s ‘Roma’ Nabs Nine Nominations for 6th Premios Platino

As was widely anticipated, Alfonso Cuaron’s triple Oscar-winning “Roma” dominated the 6th Premios Platino nominations, unveiled Thursday at Hollywood’s legendary Roosevelt Hotel, the site of the very first Oscars. It snagged a total of nine nominations, including best film, director, art direction, cinematography, and acting for its two Oscar-nominated actresses, Yalitza Aparicio and Marina de Tavira.

Roma,” which won Mexico’s first best foreign-language film Oscar, is up against pics that were also submitted for their respective countries in the Academy Awards’ foreign-language category: Colombia’s “Pajaros de Verano,” Uruguay’s “La Noche de 12 Años,” and Spain’s “Campeones.” The first two titles nabbed six Premios Platino noms each while “Campeones” took five. Paraguay’s Oscar submission “Las Herederas” took five nominations.

The ceremony streamed live on Facebook with Premios Platino ambassador and CNN Español journalist Juan Carlos Arciniegas hosting the event alongside actors Joaquin Cosio, Angie Cepeda, Jaime Camil, Luis Gerardo Mendez, Edward James Olmos, and Karla Souza.

Netflix loomed large among the TV series in contention. With the exception of Movistar’s “Arde Madrid,” three out of the four nominees were made for the streaming giant.

In a break with tradition where member-countries have taken turns in hosting the annual event since its launch, the Teatro Gran Tlachco at Xcaret, Riviera Maya, Mexico will again host the Premios Platino, slated for May 12, 2019.

Produced by Spanish audiovisual rights society Egeda and the federation of Iberoamerican producers Fipca, the Premios Platino encompasses 23 countries from Latin America, Spain, and Portugal.

The first Premios Platino was held in Panama City in 2014, followed by Marbella, Spain in 2015; Punta del Este, Uruguay in 2016; Madrid, Spain in 2017; and Riviera Maya, Mexico last year.
