Silver Ribbons 2020: 9 nominations for “Pinocchio” and “Favolacce”

Pinocchio and Favolacce are the favorites for the Silver Ribbons 2020, the prize that is awarded by 74 years since SNGCI (National Union of Italian Film Journalists). This year, however, the ceremony will not take place, as usual, at the Ancient Theater of Taormina, but in a Roman location (to be defined) and with all the security trappings for the Covis emergency.

The film by Matteo Garrone and the very young brothers D'Innocenzo (also awarded at the Berlinale with the Silver Bear for the screenplay) they grab nine nominations, follow The best years with eight nominations, The Goddess Fortuna, The Mayor of the Health District and Martin Eden with seven. In the five best titles, in addition to the two primatist titles and the films directed by Gabriele Muccino and Ferzan Özpetek, stands out Hammamet by Gianni Amelio.


Barbara Chicchiarelli: The desire to be happy, between Favolacce and black holes

To these are added three other names to make up the long list (of 10) of the category “Best director”: Pupi Avati for Il signor diavolo , Cristina Comencini for Tornare (available on streaming platforms) and Gabriele Salvatores for All my crazy love . Among the actors stands Pierfrancesco Favino , recently awarded the David di Donatello for his Buscetta, but this time the Nastri focus on his Craxi in Hammamet . Picchio will have to deal with Luca Marinelli , Coppa Volpi in Venice for Martin Eden, Stefano Accorsi and Edoardo Leo, in couple for La Dea Fortuna , Francesco Di Leva ( The Mayor of the Rione Sanità ) and with Kim Rossi Stuart ( The most beautiful years ).

Among the non-protagonists Roberto Benigni is the super favorite thanks to his Geppetto in Pinocchio by Garrone. Carlo Buccirosso ( 5 is the perfect number ), Carlo Cecchi ( Martin Eden ), Massimiliano Gallo and Roberto De Francesco ( The Mayor of the Rione Sanità ) and Massimo Popolizio ( The first Christmas – The thief of days ) are his direct competitors .

The “Best Actress” category also defends itself for the quality of the protagonists. Giovanna Mezzogiorno ( Tornare) leads the list composed by Micaela Ramazzotti ( The most beautiful years ), Jasmine Trinca ( La Goddess Fortuna ), Lunetta Savino ( Rosa ) and Lucia Sardo ( Picciridda ).

The race is open among the non-protagonists. There are: Barbara Chichiarelli ( Favolacce ), Matilde Gioli ( The golden men ), Valeria Golino competing with two films ( 5 is the perfect number Portrait of the young woman in flames ), the star of the series Baby Benedetta Porcaroli ( 18 gifts ) and Alba Rohrwacher (Maybe).

Ficarra and Picone with The first Christmas, after having withdrawn the spectator's David, end up in the fifth for the best comedy of the year . The adversaries are tough: from Figli, last film written by Mattia Torre to Far away by Gianni Di Gregorio, from I hate Massimo Venier's summer with Aldo Giovanni and Giacomo, at Tolo tolo by Checco Zalone. Will the box office king manage to bring home his first Ribbon?

The Lifetime Achievement Award will go to Toni Servillo , while the Ribbon of the Year will be awarded to I wanted to hide by Giorgio Rights, which rewards the director, the producers (Carlo Degli Esposti and Nicola Serra for Palomar and Paolo Del Brocco for Rai Cinema), the entire team of technicians and collaborators, and the actor Elio Germano , extraordinary in the role of the painter Ligabue . “We hope to share this award with all viewers soon,” Germano said in a video message. Appointment towards the end of June-beginning of July for the ceremony (sui generis) of the Silver Ribbons 2020.
