She won her first FAMAS award last night for her performance in "Ringgo: The Dog Shooter." 

And Liza Diño took to Instagram on Friday to explain why her win meant so much to her. 

Sharing a photo with her partner, Ice Seguerra, she noted that both of them now have FAMAS acting nods to their name. 

Seguerra won his back in 2012.

"Galing sa FAMAS ang unang-unang major acting award na natanggap mo noong bata ka," Diño wrote as her caption. "Kaya para sa akin, napakaespesyal nitong award na 'to." 

"Pa'no ba 'yan, lablab, mayroon na rin ako. Hahaha! Actually, dapat hati tayo dito dahil ikaw ang sumalo ng lahat ng hugot na ginamit ko just to give life to my character in this film. Love you, mahal ko. I share this with you," she added. 

Diño, who is also the head of the Film Development Council of the Philippines, won for her role in "Ringgo: The Dog Shooter." 

The indie movie is about a young dog-shooter, whose life turns a tad complicated after he finds a mother figure in a 40-year-old dog breeder, who has a pet Doberman.

The flick was directed by Rahyan Carlos, whom Diño also thanked in another Instagram post. 

"This award is not just for me but a testament of how good YOU are as an acting mentor. I have grown as an actress because of you," an excerpt of her message read.
