MANILA, Philippines — Kapuso actress Rita Daniela turned emotional upon learning that she’s nominated for Best Actress at the 11th International Film Festival Manhattan in New York.

In a report by “24 Oras,” the actress earned the nomination for her performance in the film “In the Name of the Mother.”

“The fact na napansin ako, na-appreciate nila yung trabaho ko sa pelikula na 'yon, nakakakilig. Kaya ako naiyak kasi parang nakakakilig na nakaka-excite na nakakatuwa,” Rita said.  

Rita said film director Joel Lamangan was the first to acknowledge her nomination. She said she’s thankful for the director's guidance. 

“He told me, ‘congratulations in advance. You did great with this movie. Thank you for giving a good work',” she said. 

“That’s why I remember that when I saw the nomination, I said, ‘okay, so I guess what the director said was true',” she continued.

Snooky Serna, Rita’s co-star in the movie, is also nominated in the same category while Joel is nominated in the Best Director category.
