In general there are protests during the awards in Oviedo, usually they can be seen or heard when the dignitaries arrive. Political parties make use of the awards show for their own motivation.

Mary Beard, Social Sciences Award, made a review of the ceremony on her blog: http://timesonline.typepad.com/dons_...ze-giving.html

Her opinion on Felipe and Letizia (and Sofia) is worth reading IMO
Quote:
Now, I am not a great expert in European (or any other) monarchies, and I suppose if pushed I would be a Republican (to put it another way, I wouldn't have invented monarchy in the first place, but now we have got it, there are quite a lot of other things I would get rid of first!). But the Spanish King and Queen (and Mother) had a rather different style than most of ours (in my limited experience). Sure, there was a lot of security, but there was none of that anxious protocol about how exactly they were to be addressed ("Your Majesty" on first meeting, then "ma'am', said "mam" like "jam", not 'marm'). In fact, once the other side of security, they just mingled, joked and chatted, without obvious minders hovering close; and, more to the point, the king's speech on day two (the award ceremony itself) was a lot meatier, less bland, than most of what you hear from our own lot.
Quote:
It was actually truly humbling. I was in the great comany of other prize-winners from Nuria Espert to Richard Ford and SOS Children's Villages. And the whole week was all over the Spanish speaking media. It seemed slightly odd in that context that the only mainstream UK reporting that I saw was in the Mail, and an article solely concerned with what Queen Letizia was wearing and whether she was copying Kate Middleton.

Probably he will speak of Catalonia, if he does not do it directly he will make indirect references that will be understood by all.

For the first time since the year of its foundation a President of the Government of Spain will attend the Awards. The European Union is also one of the winners, so its top representatives will also attend and speak.
