Ina Raymundo, Ai-Ai Delas Alas, Alden Richards led the awardees at this year’s Ani ng Dangal Awards.
Celebrities Ina Raymundo, Ai-Ai delas Alas, and Alden Richards led the awardees at this year’s Ani ng Dangal Awards, an annual event organized by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) where local artists and/or groups who have reaped top honors in international events are recognized.
In the ceremony attended by President Rodrigo Duterte at the Malacañang Palace, Ina and Ai-Ai were conferred the award for tying as Best Actress at the 39th Oporto International Film Festival in Portugal for their performance in films Kuya Wes and School Service, respectively, last March.
Alden, for his part, received a similar recognition for winning the Asian Star Prize award at the Seoul International Drama Awards last August.
The Asian Star Prize is a non-competition category in the Seoul International Drama Awards, which honors those who exhibit excellence in television drama productions worldwide.
Meanwhile, noticeably absent from the ceremony was Judy Ann Santos, who was also one of the 52 awardees of the Ani ng Dangal for bagging the Best Actress award at the Cairo International Film Festival last November. The Queen of Teleserye was recognized for her performance as Saima Datupalo, a Muslim mother, in the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry Mindanao.
