Golden Screen Awards celebrates politics & indie films
Carlo Orosa (The Philippine Star) - May 7, 2010 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Entertainment Press Society’s (ENPRESS) seventh Golden Screen Awards at Teatrino the other night honored not only those who showed excellence in their craft but those who centered their lives in politics and government service. An audio-visual presentation of actors who crossed over to politics was shown. But due to the hectic homestretch of the campaign season, only a few actors-turned-politicians showed up.

Vilma Santos, who is re-electionist as Batangas governor did not show up. So youngest son Ryan Christian received his mom’s Lino Brocka Achievement Award.

Arnell Ignacio, who is running for councilor in Quezon City, hosted the program. Another bet for Quezon City councilor, Roderick Paulate was around to get his award for Best Actor Comedy or Musical (for Ded na si Lolo). Senatoriable Tito Sotto presented the top awards.

Actor-politicians who couldn’t make it to the awards night made their presence felt by sponsoring the event.

Thirteen of the 17 awards went to Independent films. Six awards went to Swift Productions’ Kinatay: Best Director for Brillante Mendoza, Best Actor (Drama), Coco Martin, Best Supporting Actress, Ma. Isabel Lopez, plus Best Motion Picture.
