Pedro Almodovar's movie gained a massive 16 nominations ahead of the glitzy prizegiving, but lost out in several categories to cop drama No Rest for the Wicked, which won Best Film, Best Director for Enrique Urbizu, and Best original screenplay, while Jose Coronado trumped Banderas to take the Best Actor trophy.

The Skin I Live In, which won the Best Foreign Language Film prize at the recent British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards, triumphed in four categories.

Elena Anaya took the Best Actress trophy and Jan Cornet was named Best Breakthrough Actor, while the film also scooped awards for make-up and original music.

Oscar-tipped silent movie The Artist was also honoured at the ceremony in Madrid, winning the award for Best European Film.
