Los Goya To Pay Tribute To Versatile Actress Who Has Made More Than One Foray Into Spanish Cinema
This Saturday, in Valladolid, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences of Spain celebrates its annual meeting with the Seventh Art, the 38th edition of the Goya Awards. What better occasion to pay homage to one of the great stars of global cinema?
The Academy has announced the recipient of the Goya Internacional 2024, which will be collected this Saturday by Sigourney Weaver, an actress who needs no introduction in these parts, although a review of her career is imperative.
It is impossible to talk about Sigourney Weaver without thinking of iconic characters such as Lieutenant Ellen Ripley, whom we accompanied on that claustrophobic journey on the Nostromo in Alien, the eighth passenger. The universe of the xenomorphs has been a constant in her career, and also led her to collaborate with James Cameron.
As a result of that collaboration, Sigourney Weaver joined the cast of two of the highest-grossing films of all time, Avatar and its sequel.

It is also impossible to forget that Door Guard in Ghostbusters, a saga to which she has never hesitated to return, even with small cameos.
The 80s were a sweet moment for her, with three Oscar nominations for films such as Aliens: The Return, Gorillas in the Mist, or Working Girl.
As for Spanish cinema, her first foray was in Red Lights, the 2012 film by Rodrigo Cortés with a star-studded cast that included Cillian Murphy, Robert De Niro, Elizabeth Olsen, and Toby Jones.
Four years later, J. A. Bayona enlisted Sigourney Weaver for the film A Monster Calls, a role that earned her a nomination for the Goya for Best Supporting Actress.
It is more than deserved recognition that Sigourney Weaver is going to receive at the 2024 Goya Awards, while she is working on her upcoming projects, Dust Bunny and The Gorge, as well as her return to Pandora in the upcoming Avatar films.
