List of Nominees for 2nd Eddys Awards for Movies


Four relative newcomers and a lady filmmaker who has announced her intention to retire will battle it out for the best director plum in the 2nd Eddys for Movies of The Society of Philippine Entertainment Editors (SPEEd). 

First-time directors Alberto Monteras II ("Respeto") and Julius Alfonso ("Deadma Walking"), 26-year-old Mikhail Red ("Birdshot"), 34-year-old Raya Martin ("Smaller And Smaller Circles") are up against consistent hitmaker Cathy Garcia-Molina ("Unexpectedly Yours") in the heavily contested category of the annual awards derby. 

Their five works are vying for The Eddys’ Film of the Year trophy.

In the best actress race, Megastar Sharon Cuneta ("Unexpectedly Yours") is pitted against stage stalwart Joanna Ampil ("Ang Larawan"), international award-winning actress Alessandra de Rossi ("Kita Kita"), writer-actress Bela Padilla ("100 Tula"), and Mary Joy Apostol ("Birdshot").

The David and Goliath theme continues in the best actor race as established names Aga Muhlach ("Seven Sundays") and Ronaldo Valdez ("Seven Sundays") go up against Joshua Garcia ("Love You To The Stars And Back") Edgar Allan Guzman ("Deadma Walking") and rapper Abra ("Respeto").

There will be three special awards: the Joe Quirino Award will be given to the late movie reviewer and professor Mario Hernando (Posthumous Award), the Manny Pichel Award will be handed to entertainment editor and columnist Ricky Lo, and Producer of the Year will go to Vic del Rosario, Jr. of Viva Films.

A special tribute will be given to Hernando, directors Mario J. delos Reyes, Soxy Topacio, Maning Borlaza, Argel Joseph, actress Isabel Granada and award-winning actor Bernardo Bernardo.

Organized by SPEEd, the Eddys aims to encourage local filmmakers, producers, writers, and actors to continue pursuing their passion of creating films that mirror the realities of our society. It is slated to happen in the middle of the year.

  4. Wow ni Hindi nila ninominate si Iza Calzado Ah! Kung sabagay, kung galing at galing lang din naman, marami namang mas mahusay na performance kesa sa kanya. Naka tig isa na sina Iza at Bela, sana this time eh si Sharon Cuneta naman Ang manalo dito. Iba Lang talaga Ang husay niya dito eh, basta luluha ka na Lang nang Hindi mo alam!

  7. I'm a Maricelian, but my vote for Best Actress goes to Sharon here . Mahusay talaga siya dito, lalo dun sa breakdown scene niya while they're having a meeting! Yung napamura na Lang siya sa sakit at disappointment! Iba rin Ang atake niya sa comedy scenes niya. Yung walang ginaya. Kanya Lang talaga. Mahusay ka, Mega! Sana magkapelikula naman sila ni Inay this year!

  8. Puro kayo fan mentality. Joan Ampil ang pinaka mahusay dun sa lima. Kung comedy, pumapangalawa si Rossi. Sharon is good, but hindi sapat para matalo yung dalawa. Fans lang kayo ni Shawie kaya gusto nyo sya manalo

    1. Walang depth Ang performance ni Joanna. She was very technical. And she can sing very well. Hindi stage acting ang pinag uusapan dito. Kung stage acting, eh di siya na ang pinakamahusay! Re - Alex : Hindi naman nag comedy si Alessandra sa Kita Kita eh. Sapat na ang moving and heartfelt portrayal ni Sharon para manalo siya. Ano gusto ninyo sampalan at super sigawan scenes? Naman!
