Alfonso Cuarón Wins Golden Globe for Best Director
Alfonso Cuarón, director mexicano, recibió este domingo 6 el premio a Mejor Director en los Globo de Oro. El premio le fue concedido por su película títulada Roma, la cual también rebió el galardon a Mejor Película Extranjera.
Con este reconocimiento, Roma se convirtió en la segunda cinta mexicana en ser distinguida por los Globos de Oro a lo largo de sus 76 ediciones. Alfonso Cuarón Wins Golden Globe for Best Director
Cuarón's win cements his status as this year's Oscar frontrunner for Best Director.
“Roma” auteur Alfonso Cuarón won the Golden Globe for Best Director at the 2019 ceremony. Cuarón won the same award for “Gravity” in 2014, and his “Y Tu Mamá También” was nominated for Best Motion Picture — Foreign Language in 2002. “Roma” also earned a nomination for Best Screenplay and won for Best Motion Picture — Foreign Language (it was not eligible for Best Picture — Drama). The other nominees in the Best Director category were Adam McKay (“Vice”), Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”), Peter Farrelly (“Green Book”), and Spike Lee (“BlacKkKlansman”).
Tapping into the filmmaker’s own childhood in the eponymous Mexico City neighborhood, “Roma” follows an indigenous maid named Cleo (first-time actress Yalitza Aparicio) through a tumultuous stretch of time in 1970, as her tightly constrained personal life plays out against the backdrop of various domestic and political crises.
Cuarón’s Golden Globes win is the latest in a long string of landmarks for his extremely personal delicate black-and-white tone poem, which won the Golden Lion at last year’s Venice Film Festival before taking the top prize from the vast majority of major critics groups (including the New York Film Critics Circle and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association) and inspiring Netflix to rethink its approach to theatrical distribution. “Roma,” which is now available on Netflix, is widely expected to become the streaming giant’s first Best Picture nominee when the Academy Award nominations are announced later this month.
