by FFE Entertainment News Staff
Despite being behind in ticket sales, 10,000 Hours starring Robin Padilla won the most awards in last night’s 39th Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) Awards at the Meralco Theater.
The movie inspired by the life of former Senator Panfilo Lacson won 14 awards including the “Best Picture,” “Best Actor” for Robin, “Best Supporting Actor” for Pen Medina, and “Best Director” for Joyce Bernal.
“Wala man sa atin ang salapi, pero nasa atin ang karangalan,” Robin said during his acceptance speech for his Best Actor award.
Robin plays a cop-turned Senator who escapes to Amsterdam to evade arrest.
Vic Sotto and Kris Aquino’s My Little Bossings is still number one in the box office followed by Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy, Pagpag: Siyam na Buhay and Kimmy Dora: Ang Kyemeng Prequel.
My Little Bossings’ first- day earnings broke record after it grossed P50.4 million on 25 December. It is more than a third of MMFF’s opening day earnings of P134 million. The previous record was held by the comedy movie Sisterakas with P40.7 million also starring Kris Aquino, Vice Ganda, and Ai-Ai Delas Alas.
In the Best Actress Award category, the recognition was given to Maricel Soriano for playing the mother of quadruplets all played by Vice Ganda in Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy.
Best Actress nominee KC Concepcion, who plays a daring role in Boy Golden: The Arturo Porcuna Story, said she is honored for the nomination she received.
“It’s a great honor 2b part of this year’s Best Actress nominees for MMFF. I didn’t bag the award, but 2b nominated is still a BIG BLESSING!” KC said in her twitter.
Aiza Seguerra, who bagged the Best Supporting Actress award for My Little Bossings, expressed gratitude for the recognition.
“Salamat po sa pagkilala. Nakakataba ng puso,” Aiza tweeted.
