“Alagwa” and “El Presidente” emerged as the big winners in the PMPC 29th Star Awards for Movies which was held at the AFP Theater in Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City, Sunday night, March 10, 2013.
It’s vindication for the MMFF 2012 entry “El Presidente” after it bagged Movie of the Year plum plus 6 more trophies from this year’s Star Awards for Movies. The producers of the ER Ejercito starrer was dumfounded last year when it lost the Best Picture plum from Star Cinema’s “One More Try” at the 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival.
“Alagwa,” on the other hand, bested the Philippine’s official entry to the Oscars–”Bwakaw”–for the Indie Film of the year category. The Jericho Rosales-starrer also won Indie Film Director of the Year, Indie Movie Editor of the Year, and Child Performer of the Year for Bugoy Cariño.
ER Ejercito bagged the movie actor of the year award for El Presidente while Angel Locsin won Movie Actress for One More Try.
The 29th Star Awards for Movies was hosted by Piolo Pascual, Iza Calzado and Kim Chiu.
