La Mancha-born Almodóvar did not attend the ceremony, on account of him being in the USA, engrossed in the pre-Oscars campaign, but his brother, producer Agustín Almodóvar, was present and collected the prize awarded to Antonio Banderas, who was voted Best Actor of 2019 (after he also garnered the same trophy at the latest Cannes Film Festival). Banderas was unable to attend to accept his Forqué Award in person because he was in Málaga (his birthplace) performing in the musical A Chorus Line, which he himself has produced and is starring in.
