The Academy emphasizes ‘the great cooperative effort’ of the movie Pepi, Luci, Bom and Other Girls Like Mom (1980) and Almodovar evolution.

Congratulations, Pedro, you deserve it!

** Pedro Almodovar movies are marked by complex narratives. He employs the codes of melodrama but uses elements of pop culture and an irreverent humor. Desire, passion, family and identity are among Almodovar’s most predominant topics.

Almodovar was elected a Foreign Honorary Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2001 [2] and received an honorary doctoral degree in 2009 from Harvard University for his contribution to the arts.

All About My Mother, 1999: Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Talk to Her, 2002: Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.

Filmmakers. Listen to Pedro Almodovar:

“All my movies are difficult to classify because they are very eclectic in mixing genres.”

“I don’t want to imitate life in movies; I want to represent it. And in that representation, you use the colors you feel, and sometimes they are fake colors. But always it’s to show one emotion.” By Pedro Almodovar.
