Angel, Angelica hope to win Best Actress award

Angelica Panganiban and Angel Locsin, who topbill Star Cinema’s Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry “One More Try,” would feel honored to be nominated Best Actress alongside Nora Aunor. But the Kapamilya stars still hope they will bring home the Best Actress trophy on Dec. 27.
 
“Yes, may laban kami,” Angelica said at the press conference of “One More Try” in ABS-CBN compound on Wednesday, December 5.
 
‘May himala’

“Naniniwala kami na may himala,” she added in jest.
 
While Angelica and Angel recognize Nora’s outstanding acting talent, they are proud of their own performance in “One More Try,” which also stars Dingdong Dantes and Zanjoe Marudo.
 
“Sobra naman namin itong pinaghirapan. And sa totoo lang, maitabi lang kami sa pangalan ni Ate Guy (Nora), sino bang mag-iisip na ang tagal tagal ng artista ni Ate Guy, superstar siya, makasama lang sa mga nominado na kasama siya ay malaking bagay na iyon. Pero tulad nga ng sinabi ni Angel, hindi naman namin minamaliit ang performance namin dito. Sobra kaming positive,” Angelica said.

Angel shares Angelica’s sentiments.

“Never kong inisip sa buong career ko na kahit matapat(kay Ate Guy) kasi iba naman talaga yung talent niya. Alam po nating lahat iyan. Pero bilang mas nakakabagong artista, hindi mo rin maaalis sa amin na umasa kasi naniniwala kami sa project na ito.”

Angel feels flattered her director, Ruel Bayani is confident she and Angelica will win Best Actress even if other talented performers are vying for  the said award.
 
Dedication and confidence

“At siyempre yung dedication at confidence na pinakita ng director namin na (nagsabi na) ‘May laban ang mga alaga ko,’ siyempre nakakatuwa. So kung sino man ang manalo doon I think deserving naman talaga iyon, whether kami man or sa ibang pelikula. Andyan pa si Ate Juday (Judy Ann Santos) na sobrang galing din, si Ms. Ai-Ai (delas Alas), marami talagang bigatin na artista. Pero ayun nga, hindi mo inaalis sa amin na mag-wish,” Angel explains.
 
She admits hesitating in accepting the project at first. But on second thought, Angel felt playing the mother of an ailing son is too good to resist.

“Actually, nung pinatawag ako sabi ko noon, ‘No, kasi kakagaling ko lang noon sa pelikula.’ Tapos, nung diniscuss na sa akin yung proyekto, bumubukas na kasi napakaganda ng story. Kaya lang medyo natakot ako kasi nanay. Hindi ko alam ang pakiramdam bilang nanay talaga. Naisip ko noon, ‘Pwede na ba akong mag-mommy?,’ kaya lang sobrang challenging niya talaga.”
