In an interview before he flew to New York, Sid said that he was excited about being a nominee because it was also a big feat for the Philippines in entertainment. The actor also shared that he looks up to Hoskins, a well-known international actor.'nbsp; "I just want to shake his hand, and Helena Bonham Carter'rsquo;s. Oh my God. Okay na ako doon. Hi, hello, bye," Sid said. The young actor is also the first Filipino actor to be nominated under the Best Actor category in the International Emmys.
This was not the first time that Sid has had an international nomination. He was previously given the Best Actor award by the Thessaloniki Filmfest in Greece for his performance in the indie movie Selda. The said performance also won the actor a trophy from Gawad Urian.
