With six nominations, an excellent night was already expected for The kingdom in the IX Platinum Award held in Madrid.

Instead, the series was not crowned in three other categories: Actor interpretation (Chino Darín); Female interpretation (Mercedes Morán); and Supporting female interpretation (Nancy Duplaá).
“We want to give this award to the public who not only had fun, but then came out to discuss, in the streets and at home, the issues that ‘El Reino’ touches.: who sends us, why sends us; why ultra-conservative parties join with churches to curtail women’s rights and dissent; who are the intelligence services and for whom do they work; why there are still so many abused children in religious institutions,” Claudia Piñeiro listed when she received her award.
Another winner was Karnawala co-production between Argentina and Chile, directed by Juan Pablo Féliz, who won in the category “Best first film”. In addition, for his role in this film, Alfredo Castro won the statuette for best actor in a supporting role.
