From the opening of the show celebrating 70 years of Argentine television to the very well resolved “In memoriam” with Soledad Pastorutti singing and using the resource of augmented reality, passing through the tribute to Diego Maradona with Valeria Lynch performing “More”, the special productions stood out on speeches that generally did not go beyond the formal thanks to the teams and directors. The ceremony lasted more than four hours.
The most awarded screen was that of Telefe, which coincidentally broadcast the ceremony and won fifteen statuettes, including Gold and a Martin Fierro diamond for Susana Giménez. El Trece followed her in the list of winners with ten gauchos, followed by El Nueve and America, which won four statuettes each, and Public TV, which won two.
Among the entertainment programs, The Argentinian Voice It established itself as the best Big show and in the new TV Jury category, with Lali Espósito, Soledad Pastorutti, Ricardo Montaner and Mau and Ricky as protagonists. “Thank you for calling me to couch, just me who has never studied a donkey. More than couching, what we do is inspirational. The one who has worked hard since she was a girl, I left my life, try to inspire others to do this”, said Lali Esposito spontaneously while going on stage.
In the revelation category, the Martín Fierro rightly went to Jey Mammon, for his direction of The Mammons of America TV, one of the good surprises of last year. “It was very difficult to do a show in the middle of the pandemic and we had the joy of having people join us every night,” Jey recalled. Guido Kazcka was voted best driver, as well as winning another video game entertainment award for Welcome Aboard. However, Darío Barassi did not remain empty-handed: 100 Argentines claim that he took the statuette in a question-and-answer entertainment.

Sebastián Rollandi, general manager of El Nuevegoing up to receive the statuette.
For his part, Mirol thanked the entire editorial team and took advantage of the reward to send a message to the political class. “I want to ask a big favor: politicians and businessmen, stop the fight.

The Martín Fierro for best central newscast went to Telefe Noticias. “You had to be essential and go out every day, with the streets deserted, to tell the Argentines what was going on. We put on the body and we still suffer from it today. Many of us when we got home were doused with alcohol out of fear, it was very hard to tell what was going on because we didn’t even know it. We had a light who was Dr. López Rosetti, who helped us and all Argentines,” acknowledged Roberto Mayo, director of information for Telefe. In addition, Intratables was chosen as the best journalistic program and Jorge Lanata was voted best journalistic work. Journalist Fabián Rubino won a statuette for his work as a columnist in America.
A particularly moving moment of the evening was when The Rock of Morfi Martin Fierro was awarded in the music category. With the recent departure of Gerard Rozin, producer and host of the cycle, the memory of his companions was inevitable, expressed through tears and words. “Gerardo sweated television,” said Claudio Belocopitt, Rozín’s partner at the production company. “Gerardo’s effort last year was incredible. We couldn’t complain about the fatigue as he came back from his treatments and started riding and steering with incredible strength,” Sole Pastorutti recalled. Corta por Lozano won the award for the best magazine and the best Argentinian cooks in the gastronomic category. “It is a program that has been made with the heart and that tries to reach every corner of Argentina, rendering service, entertaining but with content. We proudly represent the values of public television, which must entertain but with values”, underlined Juan Braceli.
Although exceptionally blessed lost in the best comedy program category (it was absurdly and unfairly won by the anachronistic Bar controversy), Beto Casella won the Martín Fierro as host of a humorous and current affairs program. “Thank you to the guys who make the program,” the driver began in his speech. “I would have preferred – he said, not without complaining – a thousand times to go up with the whole Bendita team for the other list. I’m not judging the choice, nor criticizing the Aptra judging panel, it’s just the feeling of being left wanting Team Bendita back. As Bala said, we will continue to keep them entertained healthily and as a family”.
Although she was not nominated, Mirtha Legrand He was part of the ceremony and even took the stage to receive some kind of recognition/goat of a jewel from the hands of Luis Ventura, president of Aptra. “I’m 95,” he said. “And if El Trece wants and my grandson Nacho (Viale) too, I’ll go back to work,” he said, applauding. Previously, his granddaughter Juana Viale won the Martín Fierro as best driver. This seemed to be the clearest and most eloquent example that in addition to television spots, prizes were also inherited.
