"Die Beautiful" continues to bag awards almost two years since it premiered.

The comedy-drama film took home the Best Feature award at the Newcastle International Film Festival in the United Kingdom, which was held from March 29 to April 1.

In 2016, Paolo Ballesteros' portrayal of a transgender woman whose dying wish is to be dressed as Katy Perry for her funeral won him the Best Actor award at the 2016 Tokyo International Film Festival.

A month later, Ballesteros also earned a special mention at the 21st International Film Festival of Kerala in India.

Ballesteros and Christian Bables, who played the lead's best friend in the film, won Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, respectively, at the 2016 Metro Manila Film Festival.
