Last 'Tanging Ina' bags 9 awards; Dolphy sets record in the 36th Metro Manila Film Festival


The historical epic “Rosario” from Cinemabuhay and Studio 5 was named second best picture of the year, while the first-ever Filipino made CGI-based 3D animated film, “RPG Metanoia,” another Star Cinema entry in collaboration with Ambient Media, landed as the third best picture winner.

Aside from the Best Picture plum, “Ang Tanging Ina Mo (Last Na ‘To)” also bagged eight other major awards, including Best Actress for Ai Ai delas Alas, Best Director for Wenn Deramas, Best Supporting Actress for Eugene Domingo, Best Story and Best Screenplay for Mel Del Rosario, Best Musical Score for Jesse Lazatin, and Best Child Performer for Zyrel Manabat. It also won the award for Gender Sensitive Film.

Another fitting tribute was made to Comedy King Dolphy, who set a record of being the first-ever double acting winner in festival history by winning both Best Actor for “Father Jejemon” and Best Supporting Actor for his special role in “Rosario,” which also won the Gatpuno Antonio J. Villegas Cultural Award.  The legendary comedian has indicated that this may be his last appearance in the festival due to his failing health.
