Many local stars were surprised that Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio yet again failed to take home his first Oscars award
Showing their fanatic side to the public, stars of the local tinseltown have taken to their respective Twitter accounts to express their thoughts, predictions, and some violent reactions over the result of the much-awaited Academy Awards which happened on March 2, Sunday in the US (Monday in Manila).
Several local celebrities too took to their respective Twitter accounts their sadness that the Wolf of Wall Street star failed—yet again—to take home an Oscar and was bested by Dallas Buyers Club lead star and first-time-nominee Matthew McConaughey for the Best Actor in a Leading Role category.
Host Bianca Gonzalez was among the first ones to be brokenhearted by the result.
Among those who also felt bad for Leonardo were Kapamilya host MJ Felipe, singers Jim Paredes and Erik Santos, as well as young star Khalil Ramos, director Erick Salud and The Legal Wife star Maja Salvador.
Instead of feeling sad for him, It’s Showtime host Anne Curtis “consoled” the seasoned actor over his loss.
Comedian Chokoleit on the other hand has poked fun of the fact that Leonardo has been consistently snubbed by the prestigious award-giving body.
While she’s upset that the famed star didn’t win, Zsa Zsa Padilla felt that Matthew deserved the win.
Meanwhile. Pinoy Big Brother alums Paco Evangelista and Slater Young both chose to look at the bright side of things.
Many on the other hand rejoiced that Fil-Am composer Robert Lopez and wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez bagged the Best Original Song award for the night which made the former the 12th person to be part of the elite EGOT group or those that already won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscars, and Tony award.
Even celebrity parents like Senator Sonny Angara and host Daphne Oseña Paez were happy that animated film Frozen’s theme song Let It Go won.
Locally-known stars such as Carmen Soo and Fil-Am singer Anna Maria Perez de Tagle also raved about the song’s win.
