Agoncillo, Batangas baby Charlie Dizon might have lost her acting battle as she was pitted against veteran and more senior actresses at the 23rd Gawad Pasado (Pampelikulang Samahan ng mga Dalubguro) Best Actress race but she was happy and exuberant by just being nominated in the category sharing the friendly and filial competition with her colleagues.
Imagine, “Fan Girl” was her initiation to a bigger challenge in the big screen delineation as a fan of an idol whom she discovered as a monster of a hero.
Star Cinema has invested in Charlie the trust and confidence that she could deliver and yes, the young actress gave her best and earned a nomination with Pasado.
Dizon competed against acting greats Sylvia Sanchez in “Coming Home,” Iza Calzado in “Tagpuan,” Bela Padilla in “Vodka, Beers and Regrets” and Cristine Reyes in “Untrue.”
Although Charlie lost to Iza who won the award, it was a prized recognition to be in the league of these aforementioned actresses even in the nominations game.
What is more important and sensible is that Calzado was one of the spiritual backers or prayer warriors of Charlie when the latter auditioned for the role of the fan girl where she passed with flying colors.
Iza is like an older sister—like an “ate”—to Charlie as they had been together in some of ABS-CBN TV shows. Calzado until now has been giving Dizon valuable acting tips and how to handle her showbiz career in a dog-eat-dog world of the entertainment industry.
Iza and Charlie were proud that most of the nominees in the best actress section of the 23rd Pasado were all identified with ABS-CBN.
They are one in goal and spirit—to provide meaningful tube viewing experiences for the audience.
Aside from Calzado, Dizon, Sanchez, Reyes and Padilla, Jodi Sta. Maria won the Pinakapasadong Aktres sa Telebisyon for her sterling performance in “Ang Sa Iyo ay Akin.”
According to the Pasado standards, the ABS-CBN teleserye has good values and virtues that the youth could emulate.
One of the objectives of the award-giving body is to educate the audience on the importance of the visual medium in molding a good citizen.
Paulo Avelino, another ABS-CBN contract artist took home the Pinakapasadong Aktor sa Pelikula and Pinakapasadong Aktor sa Telebisyon for his excellent portrayals as an idol in his devil trappings and as an ex-husband of a beleaguered wife in search for their missing son in “Fan Girl” and “Walang Hanggang Paalam,” respectively.
Meanwhile, Zanjoe Marudo, another Kapamilya actor bested other contenders in the Pinakapasadong Katuwang na Aktor race for his credible essaying of a delinquent son embittered by the absence of his father in “Isa Pang Bahaghari.”
Meanwhile, Shaina Magdayao, another ABS-CBN stalwart, won Pinakasadong Katuwang na Aktres for her visceral breathing to a life of a lost lover in “Tagpuan.”
