Benjamín Vicuña’s reaction when Wanda Nara won the Martín Fierro revelation (Video: “Martín Fierro 2023”, Telefe)
Benjamín Vicuña was one of the stars of Sunday night at the Martín Fierro 2023 awards ceremony. On the one hand, because his romantic statement during his speech after winning a statuette went viral, while Carolina Pampita Ardohain smiled from her table looking at him on the stage.
Immediately, the focus was on the ex-partner, and the Chilean actor had to go out to clarify his statements – “perhaps I was wrong” – since the model was with her husband, Roberto García Moritán. “Obviously, my ex was with her husband in the living room and perhaps there may have been a manipulation of that speech or perhaps I was wrong. But I was referring to love in all forms: on the street, like the bench people in the theater, as a couple that I have experienced,” said the man who won a Martín Fierro for his leading role in The First of Us, the fiction of Telefe in which he played a terminally ill.
In his speech, he had taken advantage of the fact that it was Fatherland Day in Argentina to make a special mention of the country where he lived for 15 years. “Thank you very much to this country that received me, gave me a place, gave me my wonderful children. She gave me a love… ”, he said and fell silent, as if she had committed a failed act. Immediately, and trying to take it with humor, he made a kind of mea culpa by turning his head in the air and, outlining a laugh, he continued: “He gave me so many things…”. At that moment, the cameras showed the rest of the room laughing and understanding what had happened.

On the other hand, Benjamín Vicuña also went viral when the cameras focused on him at the moment that Wanda Nara won his Martín Fierro. The current host of Masterchef was nominated as a revelation for her role in front of Who is the mask? last year, and she shared a shortlist with Fede Bal, who did the same in Rest of the World, and Rocío Gómez Wlosko as a revelation actress for her role in The First of Us: she played the daughter of Benjamín Vicuña’s character.
The Association of Argentine Television and Radio Journalists (APTRA) voted for Wanda Nara and Mauro Icardi’s wife stayed with Martín Fierro in said list. While the host walked towards the stage to look for her prize, the cameras focused on the losing tables and there the reaction of Benjamín Vicuña was seen, who stood up to approach his fictional companions and had the qualms of covering his mouth to speak to them without being able to read his lips. A tactic that soccer players usually use on the field of play to prevent the transmission from being able to understand what they are discussing with each other, with their rivals or even with the referee of the match.
Meanwhile, the actor returned to his place in the chair – next to his son Bautista, who accompanied him to the most important gala on Argentine television – and listened carefully to Wanda Nara’s winning speech. “I love this country very much, I love Argentina very much. Sometimes they ask me what my secret is and I think that I have a friend at each of these tables,” said the host, referring to all those present. And she added: “I want to thank those who speak ill of me, because they make me stronger, more powerful and indestructible.”
