Xyriel Manabat is MMFF 2010 Best Child Performer

6-year-old Xyriel Manabat won as Best Child Performer in the 36th Metro Manila Film Festival or MMFF 2010 Awards Night held earlier tonight at the Meralco Theater.

Xyriel won for the movie "Ang Tanging Ina: Last Na 'To", an entry from Star Cinema topbilled by Ms. Ai-Ai delas Alas.

It's Xyriel's first movie and here she is winning her first acting award.

The other two nominees in the Best Child Performer category were Maliksi Morales for "Dalaw" and Buboy Villar for "Super Inday and the Golden Bibe".

Jillian Ward of "Si Agimat at Si Enteng Kabisote" was not shortlisted as a nominee.

With this victory, it's not a doubt that Xyriel is the "real" breakthrough child star of 2010.

On TV, she portrayed the young Agua and Bendita, played the title role in "Momay" and starred opposite Zaijian Jaranilla in "Noah".
