The gold medal was awarded to the soap opera Heart of Gold, written by Pedro Lopes and whit a cast headed by Mariana Pacheco, Rita Blanco and João Reis. The telenovela Salty Sea, starring Margarida Vila-Nova, Ricardo Pereira, Joana Santos and José Fidalgo, and written by Inês Gomes, won the bronze medal.
