MADRID -- Agustin Diaz Yanes' historical adventure Alatriste and Pedro Almodovar's Volver are leading the pack for Spain's top film prize, the Goya awards, with 15 and 14 nominations respectively, organizers announced Monday.
The two films will go head-to-head in the best film and director categories along with Guillermo Del Toro's fantasy tale Pan's Labyrinth, which earned 13 nominations, and Manuel Huerga's Salvador. The homage to Catalan anarchist Salvador Puig Antich earned 11 noms.
Antonio Banderas received a nomination for his adapted screenplay of Summer Rain and will compete with The Education of Fairies writer-director Jose Luis Cuerda, Salvador writer Lluis Arcarazo and Alatriste's Diaz Yanes.
Penelope Cruz, who reaped accolades in Cannes for her performance in Volver, will compete against Pan's Maribel Verdu, DarkBlueAlmostBlack's Marta Etura and La Dama Boba's Silvia Abascal for the best actress nod.
