Angel Locsin wins Best Actress at the 29th PMPC Star Awards for Movies
Angel Locsin couldn’t help but feel emotional when she received her Best Actress award during the PMPC Star Awards for Movies held at the AFP theater last night, March 10. The 27-year-old actress bested showbiz icons such as Nora Aunor (Thy Womb), Vilma Santos (The Healing), and Gina Alajar (Mater Dolorosa) as well as fellow Kapamilya actresses Angelica Panganiban (One hindi ko alam kung anong gagawin ko kapag hindi ako umaarte. Ganon ko kamahal ang More Try), Jodi Sta. Maria (Migrante) and Bea Alonzo (The Mistress) in the said category. “
“Pasensya na po nate-tense talaga ako. Hindi ko talaga inaasahan. Never in my wildest dreams na mahahanay ang pangalan kina Vilma Santos, Nora Aunor, Gina Alajar… Halos lahat sila [na nominees for Best Actress] magagaling. Salamat po PMPC.  Kahit hindi ako ang pinakamagaling dito, salamat talaga at nagtiwala kayo sa akin. Thank you po sa tiwala,” she humbly stated.

Angel also expressed her gratitude to her Star Cinema family for giving her the opportunity to showcase her talent in One More Try, which is one of its Metro Manila Film Fest entries last December.  “Salamat sa Star Cinema, Tita Malou Santos (Star Cinema Head), at Inang (Director Olivia Lamasan) dahil kahit na wala akong bilib sa sarili ko na gawin ang isang proyekto salamat po at nagtiwala kayo sa akin. Sana hindi kayo mapagod. Ang isang pelikula at isang artista, walang kwenta kung wala ang director, Direk Ruel Bayani maraming maraming salamat. Sa lahat ng bumubuo ng One More Try, salamat, dahil sa inyo kaya mayroon ako niton award. To my manager Manay Ethel thank you po.”

She maintained that to be given such recognition is truly a big boost to her confidence as an artist.  “Hindi niyo lang po alam kung anong naitutulong nito sa isang artista para ipagpatuloy at pagbutihan pa ang kanyang ginagawa. I’m very thankful talaga dahil nagkaroon ako ng pagkakataon na gawin pa yung isang bagay na mahal na mahal ko. Honestly, acting.”
