The Winners And The Best-Dressed Stars At The 34th PMPC Star Awards For Movies

The 34th PMPC (Philippine Movie Press Club) Star Awards for Movies was held on Sunday night at Newport Performing Arts Theater in Resorts World Manila, honoring the biggest achievements on the big screen.

Iza Calzado was this year’s big winner, as she was named the Best Actress for her performance in the movie Bliss, a psychological thriller directed by Heneral Luna director Jerrold Tarog. Iza bested other actresses such as Sharon Cuneta (Unexpectedly Yours), Alessandra de Rossi (Kita Kita), Agot Isidro (Changing Partners), Bela Padilla (100 Tula Para Kay Stella), Maja Salvador (I'm Drunk, I Love You), Jodi Sta. Maria (Dear Other Self), Kim Chiu (The Ghost Bride), Joanna Ampil (Ang Larawan), and Jennylyn Mercado (All of You).



Ako po ay nanalo sa ibang bansa para sa pelikulang Bliss pero iba po ang manalo sa sarili mong bayan at pahalagahan ka ng kapwa mo Pilipino. I hope I can continue to use this talent and platform to bring light to the world,” the actress says in her acceptance speech. “I would like to share this award to all the other nominees for Movie Actress of the year. Star Awards means a lot to me. I grew up watching this because my father would always be part of Star Awards. It means so much to me that I finally won and a major award at that."

Meanwhile, actor Raymond Francisco was named as the Movie Actor of the Year for Bhoy Intsik. "Support lang ako kina Kim Chiu at Xian [Lim] dati, ngayon nanalo na ako ng award for Best Actor,” he humbly shares during his acceptance speech.

Kim always amazes in the style department. The awards night’s host and Best Actress nominee won the Female Star of the Night. Here, she's seen sparkling and shining in her designer gowns by Patty Ang and Michael Leyva.


Xian Lim

Sin Island star Xian was named the Male Star of the Night for a reason, what with his perfectly fitted double-breasted tux and new edgy hairstyle!


Enchong Dee

A suit and a bow tie combo never goes out of style. Enchong looked so dapper.
