MMFF 2010 Awards Night - Winners: "Ang Tanging Ina Mo Last Na 'To" wins 9 trophies, including Best Picture

MMFF 2010 Awards Night or Gabi ng Parangal was held Sunday night, December 26, 2010, at the Meralco Theatre.

That's only one day after the festival officially opened nationwide and definitely, the results of the awards night will make an impact on the box-office performance of the movie.

Big winner was Star Cinema's "Ang Tanging Ina Mo: Last Na 'To" which won 9 of the 20 categories. And 7 of those 9 awards were really major ones.

Star Cinema for sure never expected "Tanging Ina Mo Last Na 'To" to win as Best Picture and even Wenn Deramas as Best Director 'coz the movie didn't even get a grade from the Cinema Evaluation Board (CEB).

Direk Wenn accepted most of the awards for the movie, including the Best Supporting Actress trophy for Eugene Domingo, who wasn't there to accept the award.

And when his name was called as Best Director, he himself was visibly surprised. "Naawa lang ata kayo sa 'kin sa pagbalik-balik ko dito sa stage...Sobra-sobrang bonus na po ito," he said in his acceptance speech.

"Rosario" meanwhile which got an A from the CEB was only the 2nd biggest winner, with 7 awards. Its director, Albert Martinez, was not even included in the Top 3 nominees for Best Director.

Aside from Direk Wenn, other nominated directors were Mike Tuviera (Super Inday and the Golden Bibe) and Louie Suarez (RPG Metanoia).

"RPG", another A-rated movie, won 4 trophies, "Si Agimat at Si Enteng Kabisote" had 2 awards while 1 each for "Super Inday and the Golden Bibe" and "Father Jejemon".

Shockingly, "Dalaw" which got a B grade and stars the President's sister Kris Aquino was totally shut off from winning any of the awards. Was it intentional?

On The Buzz Sunday afternoon prior to the Awards Night, Kris Aquino was quoted saying this: "Pinapaubaya ko na po sa kanila ang award, kasi baka batikusin lang po ang pamilya namin at si Presidente Noy."

Regal Films' "Shake, Shattle & Roll 12" also won nothing.

  31. well maybe because of the love scenes, but the essence of the film is really worth watching for. i've already seen the film and it is really well crafted. i have nothing against tanging ina but Rosario is really a film every Filipino should be proud of. it could even win an international award.
