Who made it to The Eddys nomination list?


    In its relatively short run in the local awards circuit, The Eddys — organized by the members of the Society of Philippine Entertainment Editors (SPEEd), has become a voice of credibility.

    While the year 2020 had seriously hampered filmmaking due to quarantine restrictions arising from the global pandemic, the entertainment industry came out with finished works that The Eddys now honors in its annual awards.


    The competition is intense among the nominees in the major awards, the announcement of which will be aired virtually on March 22, Monday, in cooperation with theFilm Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP).

    In the Best Actress category, nominees Charlie Dizon (“Fan Girl”), Coleen Garcia (“Mia”), Bela Padilla (“On Vodka, Beers and Regrets”), Cristine Reyes (“UnTrue”) and Sylvia Sanchez (“Coming Home”) will vie for the trophy.

    Actors who made it to the shortlist are John Arcilla (“Suarez: The Healing Priest”), Paulo Avelino (“Fan Girl”), Elijah Canlas (“He Who Is Without Sin”), Adrian Lindayag (“The Boy Foretold By the Stars”) and JC Santos (“Motel Acacia”).

    Five films will compete for Best Picture honors: “Fan Girl,” “Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story,” “He Who Is Without Sin,” “The Boy Foretold By the Stars” and “UnTrue.”

    Among the directors, Sigrid Andrea P. Bernardo (“UnTrue”), Antoinette Jadaone (“Fan Girl”), Jason Paul Laxamana (“He Who Is Without Sin”), Avid Liongoren (“Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story”) and Irene Emma Villamor (“On Vodka, Beers and Regrets”) will get top honors in the 4th Eddys.

    For the Best Supporting Actor category, nominated are Ricky Davao (“Sunday Night Fever”), Matteo Guidicelli (“On Vodka, Beers and Regrets”), Edgar Allan Guzman (“Coming Home”), Zanjoe Marudo (“Isa Pang Bahaghari”) and Enzo Pineda (“He Who Is Without Sin”).


    And who will take home the EDDYS trophy among the Best Supporting Actress nominees Via Antonio (“Alter Me”), Rhen Escaño (“UnTrue”)

    Agot Isidro (“Motel Acacia”), Sanya Lopez (“Isa Pang Bahaghari”) and Shaina Magdayao (“Tagpuan”)?

    Juancho Robles, managing partner of Chan Robles & Company, CPAs, once again takes on the auditing duties that had kept The Eddys’ integrity intact since the beginning.
