2012 Premios Ariel (Mexican film awards) – winners

This Saturday night, the Academia Mexicana de Artes y Ciencias Cinematográficas (Mexican Academy of Film Arts and Sciences) held the gala ceremony for their 54th Premios Ariel (Ariel Awards) at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City.

The awards were largely split between the gritty Días de gracia (Days of Grace) by Everardo Gout and the comedic Pastorela by Emilio Portes. They had led the nominations with fifteen and fourteen respectively. They went back and forth all night with the awards and when the dust settled, Días de gracia came out with eight awards to seven for Pastorela.

However, Pastorela claimed the top prize of Best Picture as well as Best Director and Best Screenplay for Portes. Carlos Cobos won for Best Supporting Actor. Its remaining wins were for Costume Design, Make-Up and Visual Effects.

Días de gracia won Best First Film, Actor (Tenoch Huerta) and Supporting Actress (Eileen Yáñez). It picked up five technical/craft categories: Cinematography, Editing, Music, Sound and Art Direction.

Winning for Best Ibero-American Film was Spain's Pa Negre (Black Bread) by Agustí Villaronga.

Honourary Golden Ariel Awards were presented to editor-engineer René Ruiz Cerón and writer-director Alfredo Joskowicz.
