Heart Evangelista is FAMAS Best Actress


Heart Evangelista has won for herself her first ever Best Actress trophy during the 57th FAMAS Awards held last night, October 18, 2009, at the PAGCOR Grand Theatre.

She won for the indie film Ay, Ayeng beating other multi-awarded actresses such as Dawn Zulueta, Judy Ann Santos and Sharon Cuneta.

In the past, she already won an acting trophy from PMPC Star Awards, but it was a Most Promising Actress or Best New Movie Actress award for the movie Trip.

It's now Heart's 2nd acting award, but her first major "Best Actress" trophy.

For the 2009 Metro Manila Film Festival, Heart stars in the Regal Films' entry Mano Po 6: My Mother as Sharon Cuneta's daughter and depending on her portrayal, she might win another acting trophy.

The Best Actor trophy meanwhile was awarded to Allen Dizon who lately has proven himself as a serious actor after being previously identified as a bold actor.

He won for his self-produced movie "Paupahan" leaving nominees Aga Muhlach, Jericho Rosales, Polo Ravales, Richard Gutierrez and John Estrada behind.

It's already Allen's second FAMAS award. The first time was in 2007 when he won as Best Supporting Actor for "Twilight Dancers", which also gave him his 1st acting trophy during the PMPC Star Awards the same year.

"Paupahan" stars Snooky Serna and German Moreno were the night's Best Supporting Actress and Actor respectively.

It's Snooky's second Best Supporting Actress award this year for the same movie. She also won at the PMPC Star Awards.

As for FAMAS, it's already her third. She was previously honored as Best Actress in 1994 for "Koronang Itim" and as Best Child Actress in 1972 for "My Little Angel".

The year 2009 is also Kuya Germs' year as he scored his second Best Supporting Actor honor for "Paupahan". He also won the same award at the PMPC Star Awards.

It's interesting to note that FAMAS has a special award in honor of Kuya Germs' name, the German Moreno Youth Achievement Award which was handed out to the loveteams of Kim Chiu-Gerald Anderson and Aljur Abrenica-Kris Bernal.

Sarah Geronimo was actually the night's big winners with her two victories: as Golden Artist Awardee and another one for Best Movie Theme Song (Ngayon, Bukas at Kailanman) from the movie "Baler" which was declared Best Picture.

Jessica Mae Flores and Dominico Soriano, child stars from the movie "Ay, Ayeng", were Best Child Actress and Best Child Actor respectively.

Congrats to all the winners!
