'Orphanage' Leads Goya Race   

December 17, 2007 Variety reports that the Guillermo Del Toro-produced "Orphanage" is ahead in the race for the Goya Awards.

Spain’s foreign language Oscar candidate, Juan Antonio Bayona’s “The Orphanage,” has nabbed 14 nominations for the country’s 22nd Goya Awards, in a tie with Emilio Martinez Lazaro’s “13 Roses,” also up for awards in 14 categories.
Produced by Rodar y Rodar and Telecinco Cinema, and an imminent Picturehouse bow in the U.S., “Orphanage’s” noms include film, new director, supporting actress (Geraldine Chaplin), and original screenplay (Sergio Sanchez).

Best pic noms also include “13 Roses,” Jaime Rosales’ “Solitary Fragments” and Gracia Querejeta’s “Seven Billiards Tables.”

One of the tightest contests should come in actress, where “Orphanage’s” femme lede Belen Rueda faces off with Blanca Portillo, who won an actress plaudit at September’s San Sebastian fest for Querejeta’s “Tables,” which has 10 noms.
