Ever wondered how Benicio Del Toro and Javier Bardem rose to stardom? The Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, are the premier honors for film actors, directors, writers, and others who work in the industry. The ceremony is also a distinctly American affair, with filmmakers who hail from other countries often being relegated to the “Best Foreign Film” category. However, this precedent has never prevented actors from other countries receiving recognition for their achievements on screen. In fact, the first ever “Best Actor” Oscar was awarded to a German actor by the name of Emil Jannings. The three most coveted awards in the American film industry are The Oscars, the Golden Globes, and the Screen Actors’ Guild Awards. In order for an actor to win all three in one year, the stars themselves must align. The actor must give a performance that is both stunningly original and brilliantly executed. There have only been a handful of actors who have earned the distinction of sweeping all three in a single year. Sometimes, the winning portrayal is of a particular historical figure or a contemporary great. For more interesting facts you must read the biographies. Grab Your biography books now!

By examining four novels in this study, I explore two important transitions in recent Spanish history: the transition to democracy following the death of Francisco Franco in 1975 and the transformation of Spain from a modern to a postmodern society during the latter half of the twentieth century. More concretely, I analyze Terenci Moix's El dia que va morir Marilyn (1969), Montserrat Roig's El temps de les cireres (1977), Manuel Vázquez Montalban's Los mares del Sur (1979), and Juan Marsé's El amante bilingüe (1990) in relation to these historical changes. I conduct a three-tiered analysis for each novel. First, I look at how the novel responds to the political context in which it was published. Second, I examine how social conflict between Barcelona's upper and lower classes is inscribed into the novel's narrative. Finally, I explore how different narrative features of each novel reveal the historical shift to late capitalism. This study demonstrates that each of these novels creates an imaginary Barcelona that responds to and is shaped by its political, social, economic, and cultural surroundings. Moreover, when viewed as a whole, these narratives show the emergence of a working-class consciousness among the immigrants from southern Spain who migrated to Barcelona during the period that spanned from the early 1950s to the early 1970s. While this working-class consciousness largely remains below the surface of the narratives in El dia que va morir Marilyn and El temps de les cireres, it stands at the forefront in Los mares del Sur and El amante bilingüe. In addition, this study demonstrates that when viewed together, these novels reveal that the years surrounding the political transition from dictatorship to democracy in Spain are inextricably bound to the broader historical transition from modernity to postmodernity.

New readings of literary and cinematic texts are presented here in historical context, informed by cultural theory. In her survey of the history of Spanish cinema in the dictatorship and democratic periods, the author argues that studies of adaptations must simultaneously address questions of 'text' - formal issues central to the study of film and literature - and 'context' - ideological concerns crucial to late twentieth-century Spain. She examines three themes of particular importance to contemporary Spanish culture - the recuperation of history, the negotiation of the rural and the urban, and the representation of gender - and considers the related stylistic issues of the affinities between cinematic expression and nostalgia, the city and phallocentrism. The study concludes with an analysis of the formal question of the narrator in film and literature, through an assessment of Buñuel's previously unacknowledged stylistic debt to Galdós as manifested in his adaptations of Nazarín/ and Tristana.
