Filipina Actress Dolly de Leon becomes the only Filipino to be nominated in the 2022 Satellite Awards given by the International Press Academy for her work in the film “Triangle of Sadness”.
“Triangle of Sadness” protagonist Dolly de Leon continues to make a buzz in the international scene, earning an acting nomination in the 2022 Satellite Awards given by the International Press Academy (IPA) for her portrayal in the Ruben Östlund black comedy Triangle of Sadness, released on its official website on December 8.
The Filipina actress was nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role category alongside international and Hollywood acts including Jean Smart for “Babylon,” Angela Bassett for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” Kerry Condon for “The Banshees of Inisherin,” Claire Foy for “Women Talking” and Jamie Lee Curtis for “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” reported Inquirer.
The 2022 hit film also earned nominations for Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical, while writer-director Ruben is nominated for Best Original Screenplay.
“Triangle Sadness,” is a movie about the inequality of society that takes place in a cruise that sees the mighty rich people get bossed around by none other than Abigail, played by Dolly, a cleaner of the ship, to be able to survive after the ship capsizes.
The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May and ended up winning the film festival’s highest prize, the Palme d’Or, putting Dolly in the international spotlight with her refreshing acting for the Westerners.
In the prestigious awards show, de Leon is the only Filipino to be nominated after signing with a US talent agency in June, and is expected to venture in more international roles.
Before her role in the movie, Dolly has also appeared in the Filipino films “Historya ni Ha” and “Hintayan ng Langit,” and the HBO Asia anthology series “7 Days of Hell.”
According to the International Press Academy, winners will be announced on February 11, 2023, in Los Angeles.
