MANILA – “Ekstra,” which marked the indie debut of veteran actress Vilma Santos as a bit player, led the nominees for this year’s Star Awards for Movies given by the Philippine Movie Press.

The movie, which debuted at last year’s Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival, garnered 12 nods, including Indie Movie of the Year. Santos is up for Movie Actress of the Year, while Jeffrey Jeturian got a nomination for Indie Movie Director the Year.

The Star Awards for Movies has separate categories for independent films.

Star Cinema’s “On the Job” and “Four Sisters and a Wedding” grabbed 11 nominations from the PMPC, while “10,000 Hours,” which swept the Metro Manila Film Festival awards last December, also got 11 nods.

Santos will be up against long-time rival Nora Aunor, who also got a nomination for Movie Actress of the Year, for the indie film “Ang Kuwento Ni Mabuti.” They will compete in that category against Lorna Tolentino for “Burgos,” veteran actress Rustica Carpio for “Ano Ang Kulay Ng Mga Nakalimutang Pangarap?,” KC Concepcion for “Boy Golden” and Angel Locsin and Bea Alonzo for “Four Sisters and a Wedding.”

Meanwhile, Piolo Pascual and Joel Torre lead the nominees for Movie Actor of the Year for their work on “On the Job,” along with MMFF winner Robin Padilla for “10,000 Hours.” They will be competing with Jake Macapagal for the British film “Metro Manila,” Jorge Estregan Jr. for “Boy Golden,” Dingdong Dantes for “Dance of the Steel Bars” and Vice Ganda for “Girl Boy Bakla Tomboy.”

The PMPC Star Awards for Movies will be held on March 9 at the Solaire Hotel in Pasay.
