Sinasabing ang staple food ng mga taga-syobis ay kontrobersiya.  Hindi matatawaran ang kakaibang talento ng namamahay rito kung yan din lang naman ang pag-uusapan.  Masasabi ring kulang sa urbanibad ang karamihan rito dahil sa lantarang pang-aalipusta nila sa kanilang sarili.  Walang patumangga namang nilalamon ng masa ang latak ng kawalanghiyaang ito dahil pang-manhid na rin ito sa tinatamasang pagdarahop.  Sa ginanap na MMFF awards kagabi, marahil isa na namang gabing bababa sa hagdanan ng pagdalipurak sa sining ng pelikula.  Maraming nanalo na batbat sa kontrobersiya at kung nararapat man ay kulang sa konbiksyong masasabi dahil ang lahat naman ay bunga ng pagkukunwari lamang.  Isang pako sa kabaong ng namayapang PELIKULANG PILIPINO ang kaganapan kagabi. Sumaimpyerno nawa!

Narito ang ulat mula sa YAHOO pHILIPPINES : “Manila Kingpin: The Asiong Salonga Story” dominated the 37th Metro Manila Film Festival Awards Night held at the Newport Performing Arts Theater at Resorts World Manila in Pasay City on Wednesday night, December 28.

The film festival’s only action movie won a total of 11 awards, including Best Picture, Best Screenplay (for Roi Iglesias and Rey Ventura), Best Supporting Actor (for John Regala), and the Gatpuno Villegas Cultural Award.

It also won almost all of the technical awards.

Interestingly, a “Gary dela Cruz” was credited when “Manila Kingpin” won the award for Best Director. Its original director, Tikoy Aguiluz, secured a court order to have his name removed from the credits of “Manila Kingpin” due to re-shooting and editing of the film without his permission.

“Enteng Ng Ina Mo” won second best picture while “Shake, Rattle, and Roll 13” won third best picture.

Dingdong Dantes won the Best Actor award for his role in “Segunda Mano” while Maricel Soriano of “Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow” won Best Actress. Maricel’s film was disqualified from contention in the other creative awards, including Best Picture, because the exhibited version was a departure from the script the producers submitted to the MMFF Committee.

The Kapuso actor bested Vic Sotto (“Enteng Ng Ina Mo”), E.R. Ejercito (“Manila Kingpin: The Asiong Salonga Story”), Ryan Agoncillo (“My Househusband: Ikaw Na!”), and Jericho Rosales (“Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow”) for the award.

Meanwhile, Ai-Ai delas Alas (“Enteng Ng Ina Mo”), Judy Ann Santos (“My Househusband: Ikaw Na!”), Eugene Domingo (“Shake, Rattle, and Roll 13”), and Maricar Reyes (“Shake, Rattle, and Roll 13”) were the nominees for the Best Actress award.

Domingo won Best Supporting Actress for “My Househusband: Ikaw Na!”

Meanwhile, “H.I.V.” and “Pintakasi” evenly split the awards for the full-length independent film categories of the New Wave Section of the 2011 MMFF.

“Pintakasi” was named the festival’s best full-length independent film and won the Best Actor award (for JM de Guzman).

“H.I.V.” won the Best Actress (for Iza Calzado) and the Gender Sensitivity awards.

  1. i watched both Segundamano and Asiong salonga, i think E.R. knowing him as a villain form his previous movie and now taking a lead role not just a action actor but a versatile actor. i have no badmouth about dindong dantes but i think E.R deserves more for the Best Actor award.

  2. corny ng shake rattle. inantok lang ako di man nakakatakot, sayang binayad namin sa movie house dapat pala sa pirated ko nalang pinanuod. two thumbs up sa segundamano sulit.
