"Labyrinth" Scored Big at the 2007 Ariel Awards

Pan's Labyrinth picture


"Pan's Labyrinth" won nine out of twelve nominations it had landed at the 2007 Ariel Awards, including top prize best picture.

A fanciful and chilling story set against the backdrop of a fascist regime in 1944 rural Spain, "Pan's Labyrinth" gloriously came out as the big winner at this year's Ariel Awards ceremony, held Tuesday, March 20 at Mexico City's Palace of Fine Arts.

Nominated in twelve categories, the flick wonderfully scooped up nine honors altogether, notably the best picture and director for Guillermo del Toro. The rest were best actress trophy for Maribel Verdu, best cinematography, art direction, original score, makeup, costume design, and special effects.

Released in the U.S. last year through Picturehouse to earn rave reviews from critics, "Labyrinth" has fared particularly well this awards season, earning best foreign picture title at this year's BAFTA Awards and OFCS Awards while sweeping seven prizes at Spain's Goya Awards. More amazingly, it also won three Oscar honors for cinematography, art direction, and makeup at its 79th ceremony held last month.
