Between Marisa Paredes, Goya de Honor throughout her career, and Greta Fernández, the last Silver Shell in San Sebastián at 24, there is a half century difference. Of age, not talent. Between C. Tangana, Bob Pop, Paul B. Preciado and Anna Castillo, there is a range of orientations, identities and styles of living life, but they are matched by the quality of their trades. And to the insultingly young and handsome actors of Elite and the spectacular and veteran model Oriol Elcacho separates them 20 years of career, but not the charisma they accredit before the cameras. Each of his father and mother, but brothers in the domain of his art. Different but unique. If something united the winners on Wednesday night at the 5th ICON Awards, the men's magazine of EL PAÍS, it was diversity and excellence. The rest, like the styles of each and one, is opinable.
Soledad Gallego-Díaz, director of EL PAÍS, has been in charge of greeting biodiversity show size in her welcome speech. "With these awards, ICON, the men's magazine of which EL PAÍS is very proud, demonstrates its long lights in the search for talent," he said before an audience that might well resemble at times the writing of his newspaper. Professionals of all ages, specialties and coatings united by passion for their work and hunger not only for glory. It is always a pleasure to see the fellows grow, and, in some cases, the newspaper has literally seen many of the winners grow older.
Three summers ago, Antón Álvarez, C. Tangana for the balloon, rehearsed his lyrics and music in a rented apartment in the humble Madrid neighborhood of Quintana and urged his contemporaries to "take direct action." Go if you have. Tonight, with a Marilyn Monroe shirt as a flag, he has collected the coolest music prize that an eight.
Nearby, Bob Pop, Roberto Enriquez in the DNI, confessed to accepting the "Agitated Live" Cultural Agitator Prize, "which, although not knowing what it is, I suppose it is to launch ideas and make someone move something in the head". The "vedette intellectual ", as defined, accustomed to" dress strong ", has opted this Wednesday for a black jacket as an ecological astrakhan on a t-shirt with the singer Martirio printed across the chest. "All that fits me is my size, which Terelu would say," he quoted his classics.
The one that has also grown is Anna Castillo. At last year's party, your Majesty Pedro Almodóvar said in his ear that he admired her and gave the girl almost a telele. So this time, when picking up his own prize, it rained on wet. Another that has changed his is the philosopher Paul B. Preciado, born Beatriz, winner of the literature prize. Neither male nor female, nor transgender, nor gay, nor lesbian. Precious, who declares herself a gender dissident, has made her transition between identities her artistic material and an ethical and aesthetic posture very ICON. Perhaps he himself summarized, better than any other, the spirit of the night.
After the nerves of the delivery, Dani García, the new director of ICON after succeeding the founder Lucas Arraut a few months ago, made pineapple and claimed the work of his team: “This is not an author's magazine, but of diverse authors of the that we all feel part ”. From the posters, Iggy Pop, cover boy of number 68, seemed to bless those present from his 72 venerable tacos.
The longest, however, was Boris Izaguirre, historical presenter of the awards, dressed in a tapestry as upholstery, perhaps in honor of the Royal Tapestry Factory where we were. "It's from Dries Van Notten," he presumed to whom he wanted to hear. Last year he met the teacher in these same awards and, taking advantage of a trip to Antwerp, went to his shop and made him a friend price. Often it is Boris. Here the one who does not run, flies.
