Sexy Actor Shines

After winning several awards last year for his acclaimed performance as an inmate in Paolo Villaluna and Ellen Ramos’ “Selda”, Emilio Garcia once again triumphs as he wins the Gawad Tanglaw Best Supporting Actor for his performance as the menacing cop in Joel Lamangan’s “Walang Kawala”. Indeed, it is another victory for this former sexy actor.

Last year, Emilio won the Best Actor in the Thesalloniki Film Festival in Greece, as well as the Gawad Urian, Gawad Tanglaw and the Star Awards Best Suporting actor Awards, all for “Selda”. This is Emilio’s second Gawad Tanglaw award for two consecutive years. The actor is busy now
taping for the television programs “Gagambino” and “Paano Ba Ang Mangarap?” for GMA 7.

He is set to start work in Paul Sta. Ana’s “Marino”, about the lives of Filipino marines where he is set to star with Ara Mina, Victor Basa, Allen Dizon, Geneva Cruz, among others. Another
project that excites Emilio is Joel Lamangan’s “Dukot (Desapericidos)”, written by Palanca Awardee Boni Ilagan and also co-starring Iza Calzado, Gina Alajar, Robert Arevalo, Allen Dizon and Snooky Serna. In “Dukot”, Emilio plays a reporter who is fighting for a cause and helping out victims of human rights. Meanwhile, Emilio will be awarded by the Ani ng Sining Awards by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts in celebration of the Philippine International Arts
Festival on February 28. This is for Emilio’s triumph for Selda in the Thesalloniki Film Festival in Greece.

THESALLONIKI FILMFEST...i would classify this festival to be in the "C" league. very minor and would not even create a stir. Athens Filmfest (if there is one, i don't know) could be in a higher league. Thesalloniki is much like Cebu, always looking up to a mega city - Manila...sorry Emil, but winning the award is not worth a line in your resume.

WAKE UP LEX...lately your post has become a "l rice, 1 viand" showbiz combo. in other words - BORING.

look at some of the things you missed (or passed) :

i. Obama gay rumour (already?)

ii. Iceland's openly gay Ms. Pres.

iii. Justin T. dancing with Beyonce in a swimsuit.

iv. Dingdong on AXN

v. my personal favourite, "ONLY ASIAN BOYS", under-rated but hard working blogger.

Lex, pleeeezzzzz take out the spice shaker and continue making Lexuality a variety show.

FILM FESTIVALS...are money-making businesses. competition is cut-throat. flowery advertising and back stabbings are rampant(some don't even release attendance figures...DON'T BE FOOLED! indeed, use your better judgment not the 'net.
