Lluis Rivera was nominated in 2014 for Los últimos días and won the Goya along with fellow graduate Lluís Castells in 2016 for Anacleto: agente secreto. This is the first nomination for Laura Pedro who, if she wins, would be the first woman to do so.

Edu Grau was already nominated in 2011 for Buried.

ESCAC graduates have so far achieved more than 40 nominations and 20 Goya Awards. Good luck to all of them!
