Unique corners of this capital are the San Nicolás viewpoint, where the view takes place.

The president declined to give further details about the gala because it involves the organization of a “very complex” event in which 27 awards are presented during a prolonged show and sometimes musicals are put together “little by little.” He says there were issues that were not finalized until the last few weeks.

At the same time We will meet the presenters of the gala soon, However, he answered journalists’ questions after assessing that the choice of Ana Belén and the Javises as the hosts of the last event was a “great idea” that worked “very well” and was received “very positively”.

This is the fifth time that members of the academy and the City Council have held working meetings on the organization of the gala, which will be held in the central Congress Palace, where some adjustments will have to be made to accommodate and have more seats. Méndez-Leite noted that he would probably expand the script.
