Eugene Domingo, the lone Filipino nominee in this year's awards, will be up against Han Hyo-joo (Cold Eyes, South Korea), Paw Hee Ching (Rigor Mortis, Hong Kong), Yoko Maki (The Ravine of Goodbye, Hong Kong), at Zhang Zi Yi (The Grandmaster, Hong Kong/Mainland China) for the award.

This is the second time that the Pinay comedienne was nominated in the Asian Film Awards which is dubbed as the Asian Oscars. In 2012, Eugene was nominated for Best Actress at the 6th Asian Film Awards for her role in Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank. She bagged then the People's Choice Award for Best Actress while compatriot Shamaine Beuncamino won Best Supporting Actress for Niño.

Last year, Nora Aunor and Eddie Garcia took home the top acting honors from the same award-giving body, for Thy Womb and Bwakaw, respectively, marking the first time that the Philippines bagged both the Best Actor and Best Actress awards in Asian Film Awards.

Gina Pareño is the first Filipino to win an award in the said Hong Kong based award-giving body, bagging the Best Supporting Actress trophy in 2009 for her performance in Brillante Mendoza‘s Serbis.

The 8th Asian Film Awards 2014 awarding ceremony will be held on March 27, 2014 at the City of Dreams Casino Resort in Macau.

MMFF 2012 Awards Night: Angel Locsin and Nora Aunor in a Tight Race for Best Actress

Posted on December 26, 2012 | 11:51 AM

Superstar Nora Aunor and award-winning actress Angel Locsin are in a neck-to-neck battle for the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF 2012) Best Actress trophy. The awards night will happen Thursday, December 27 at the Meralco Theater.

Angel Locsin and Nora Aunor for MMFF 2012 Best Actress

Nora Aunor has been the front-runner to win Best Actress for her performance in Thy Womb as a Badjao midwife who is coping with her infertility by acting as a match-maker to his husband and the one that could give him a child. Ate Guy has won several accolades in international film festivals for the film and it would be safe to assume that she's a top contender for Best Actress in MMFF.

Meanwhile, One More Try lead actress Angel Locsin is also getting the Best Actress buzz for her role as Grace, a single mother who will do anything to save his ill child. Moviegoers who got to watch the film strongly believed that Angel's performance is worthy of an acting award.

Angelica Panganiban might also be up for the Best Actress trophy but if she will be nominated as Best Supporting Actress, she has it in the bag. Zanjoe Marudo might also won for the award's male counterpart, having nailed his role as Tristan in the movie. However, Cesar Montano and Christopher de Leon also did well in the historical biopic El Presidente.

For the Best Actor category, many said that it will be between Gov. E.R. Ejercito (Jeorge Estregan) of El Presidente, Dingdong Dantes of One More Try, Enchong Dee of The Strangers and Vice Ganda of Sisterakas.

We predict that it will be a tie between Nora Aunor and Angel Locsin for Best Actress and the other acting awards will be shared by the three movies One More Try, Thy Womb and El Presidente.

Posted on December 9, 2012 | 8:03 PM

"Si Ate Guy po ‘yon. Nirerepesto natin ang galing niya. Pero hindi naman namin mamaliitin ang effort na pinakita namin sa pelikulang ito. Si Angelica, masasabi kong napakagaling niya sa pelikulang ito. Ako, hindi rin naman ako nagpatalo," said Angel Locsin who plays Grace, a single mom who will do anything for her ill child.


Even the director of the movie, Ruel Bayani claimed that both Angel and Angelica deserved the Best Actress award, even though Nora Aunor has already earned awards for her performance in Thy Womb.

"Siyempre ang mga tao sasabihin si Ate Guy (Nora Aunor) 'yun at wala namang laban 'yung dalawang bata. Pero hindi ganoon ang buhay. Ang buhay paggising mo may laban ka," direk Ruel Bayani said during the press conference of One More Try. "Yes, may laban si Angel at Angelica for best actress," he was quoted.

Direk Ruel, who also helmed the smash hit No Other Woman said that One More Try is better than the former which he considers as his best film so far.

One More Try, which opens in theaters this December 25 as part of the 2012 MMFF also stars Dingdong Dantes and Zanjoe Marudo, who according to several critics deserved acting accolades as well for their performances in the movie.
