MANILA — The House Committee on Creative Industry and Performing Arts has approved a resolution congratulating actress Dolly de Leon for winning Best Supporting Actress in the Los Angeles Film and Critics Association for her role as a toilet manager in "Triangle of Sadness."

"Ms. De Leon, a newcomer, was chosen over popular actresses like Angela Bassett who was nominated for the movie 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' and Jessie Buckley for 'Women Talking'," HR 653 noted.

"Ms. De Leon is also the first Filipino to be nominated for Golden Globe best supporting actress for the same role," it said. "The said accomplishments of Ms. De Leon undoubtedly brought glory to our country."

In the same hearing Tuesday, the panel also adopted House Resolution 609, authored by Rep. Jocelyn Limkaichong, which congratulates and commends Ian Fermin Rosales Casocot for winning 1st prize in the short story category of the Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature.
