MANILA, Philippines – Actress Maja Salvador continues to reap praises for her performance in "Thelma," for which she has been nominated yet again as best actress.
Salvador, who was earlier nominated as Best Actress in the 28th Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC) Star Awards for Movies, said her latest nomination for the same film was another pleasant surprise.
“Ang bilis ng pangyayari. After ng mga nominations sa iba, ito naman, Gawad Urian naman. At ang Gawad Urian, napakalaking karangalan niyan. Ako, ma-nominate lang ako, maging part lang sa nominasyon nila, ang-saya, masasabi ko na, at least, ngayon part ako,” she said in an interview with ABS-CBN News.
Although she is happy to have been just nominated, Salvador admitted she dreams of bringing home a Best Actress trophy – an honor that will make her family doubly proud.
“Umaamin ako na nangangarap ako na magkaroon ng best actress award. Kung ibibigay ‘yun ng Diyos, sobrang nagpapasalamat po ako,” she said.
“Kung makasungkit man ako, maka-swerte man, salamat naman sa tiwala. Sobrang proud sa’kin ‘yung family ko, ‘yung mama ko, ‘yung kapatid ko. Dream din nila sa’kin na magkaroon din ako ng award,” she added.
The awards night of the 35th Gawad Urian will be held on June 14 (Thursday) at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo.
