Ang Larawan and Siargao are the big winners of MMFF’s Gabi ng Parangal held last December 27 at the Kia Theatre.
Ang Larawan took home six awards including Best Picture and Best Actress for Joanna Ampil. Second Best Picture winner Siargao garnered the most trophies at seven, including Best Director for Paul Soriano and Best Supporting Actress for Jasmine Curtis-Smith.
Ang Panday also had a great run, bagging three special awards and Best Visual Effects. Deservedly, The Revenger Squad was given the People’s Choice Award.
