Andi Eigenmann’s touching speech after winning Best Actress at the FAMAS Awards


120616-AndiEigenmann_PUSH.jpgAndi Eigenmann was overwhelmed when she received this year’s Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences (FAMAS) Best Actress Award for her performance in “Angela Markado.” Andi portrayed the role of a rape victim seeking revenge.

During her speech, the actress dedicated her award to her mother Jaclyn Jose, daughter Ellie, and to women, especially those who have experienced pain and abuse.

For Jaclyn, she said, “Ang parangal na ito ay para sa aking pinakamamahal na Nanay, at sa lahat ng kababaihan, lalo na sa mga nakaranas ng kahit anong klase ng pangaabuso. Hindi natin kailangang hayaan ang iba na maliitin at tapakan ang ating pagkatao.

Sana ay magsilbi itong inspirasyong nagpapatunay na ilang beses man tayong madapa, basta't huwag magsawang maniwala, at laging piliing lumabas na mas mabuting tao sa kabila ng lahat, hinding hindi tayo kakalimutang biyayaan ng Diyos. Sana, kagaya ko, huwag kayong magsawang maniwala na parating may liwanag sa likod ng kahit anong dilim. Dahil napakatamis ng pakiramdam na marating ito.

To her daughter Ellie, Andie said, “Sa pamamagitan ng aking tagumpay, ito ay tandaan mo. Kahit anong taas ang ating marating, lagi nating iwang nakatapak sa lupa ang ating mga paa. Simple lang ang aking regalo, pero sana'y manatili ito sa puso mo.

Ang pinakamalaking tagumpay para sa akin ay ang makita kang tumanda ng may pagmamahal, respeto at pagmamalasakit sa LAHAT. Mapatao man, hayop, o ang kalikasan,” she said.

This is Andi’s first FAMAS and first Best Actress win.
