To check nominations in all categories in Spanish go here and to read the news in English go here. Somehow I’m not surprised that Abrazos Rotos (Broken Embraces) was shut-out in this edition, I didn’t really enjoyed the movie that to me looks the most commercial Almodovar I have ever seen; nevertheless Penelope shines in the movie and her nomination is well deserved.

To read winners in all categories go Academy site and look for news from 15/2/10 as they didn't updated the winners and have last year at the Goya's section.
