Dolphy wins both Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor awards in the 2010 Metro Manila Film Festival

Comedy King Dolphy was honored both as Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor in the 36th Metro Manila Film Festival.

The awarding was held tonight during the festival's Gabi ng Parangal at the Meralco Theater.

Only the Top 3 nominees for each category were announced.

Dolphy won as Best Actor for "Father Jejemon" beating Vic Sotto ("Si Agimat at Si Enteng Kabisote") and Yul Servo ("Rosario").

For the Best Supporting Actor award, Dolphy won for "Rosario" and was the top choice over Alwyn Uytingco (Ang Tanging Ina Mo: Last Na 'To), Roy Alvarez (Father Jejemon) and Sid Lucero (Rosario).

It's Dolphy's first Best Supporting Actor award from MMFF but already his second time to win Best Actor. He previously won in the 1990 MMFF for the movie "Espadang Patpat".

The Best Actress trophy meanwhile went to first-timer Ai-Ai delas Alas for "Ang Tanging Ina Mo: Last Na 'To". She bested Marian Rivera ("Super Inday and the Golden Bibe") and Carla Abellana ("Shake, Rattle & Roll 12").

It was a big surprise that Jennylyn Mercado who was highly praised for her performance in the movie "Rosario" was not even one of the Top 3 nominees for Best Actress.

MMDA indeed granted Ai-Ai's wish to give her the award. She has been longing for it. She even kneeled down on national T.V., begging the MMDA to let her win as Best Actress.

Other acting awards went to Eugene Domingo as Best Supporting Actress and Xyriel Manabat as Best Child Performer both for "Ang Tanging Ina Mo: Last Na 'To".

Eugene, who already won the same award in 2007 MMFF for "Bahay Kubo", triumphed over Alessandra De Rossi and Gina Pareño both for "Dalaw".
