Christian Bables broke down in tears as he struggled to come to terms with his win at the 40th Gawad Urian Awards on Thursday night.
The neophyte actor won Best Supporting Actor for his role as the trans best friend of Paolo Ballesteros' lead character in "Die Beautiful."
Bables, in a clip shared by entertainment website MyCHOS on Instagram, was seen crying backstage as he was congratulated by "Finally Found Someone" star John Lloyd Cruz.
Bables will appear in the romance movie set for a July 26 release.
Cruz was also nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category, but lost out to Bables. The other nominees for the award were Nonie Buencamino, Taha Daranda, Julio Diaz, and Jess Mendoza.
