Pormal nang inilabas ng officers and members ng Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC), Inc.—isang grupo ng entertainment writers and editors—ang official nominees para sa 24th PMPC Star Awards For Movies.

 

Pagkalipas ng ilang linggong pagtitiyagang mag-review ng cited films and performances para sa taong 2007, finally ay nakapaglabas na ng nominees sa 27 categories ang PMPC. Nagdesisyon din silang ihiwalay this year ang digital and mainstream film categories.

 

Para sa inaabangang Movie Actress of the Year, magbabakbakan sina Maricel Soriano (A Love Story), Judy Ann Santos (Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo), Cherry Pie Picache (Foster Child), Ai-Ai delas Alas (Ang Cute ng Ina Mo), Bea Alonzo (One More Chance), at Lorna Tolentino (Katas ng Saudi).

 

Take note na for two years in a row, nominado sina Marya, Juday, at Cherry Pie for Best Actress. Last year, nanalo si Judy Ann for Kasal Kasali Kasalo at kapwa naman nominated sina Maricel for Inang Yaya at si Cherry Pie naman for Kaleldo.

 

For the Movie Actor of the Year, maglalaban-laban naman sina Aga Muhlach (A Love Story), Piolo Pascual (Paano Kita Iibigin), Sid Lucero (Selda), Paolo Contis (Banal), Ryan Eigenmann (Baliw), at John Lloyd Cruz (One More Chance).

 

Last year, si Piolo ang nanalo as Best Actor for his performance in Don't Give Up On Us, ka-tie si Jericho Rosales for Pacquiao.

 

Noteworthy ring banggitin na as a first-time director, nominado si Dingdong Dantes as Movie Director of the Year para sa idinirek niyang episode sa pelikulang Angels. Makakalaban ng young actor-director ang mga batikang direktor na sina Maryo delos Reyes, Jose Javier Reyes, atbp.

 

Bukod sa gagawaran ng PMPC si Mr Rudy Fernandez bilang Ulirang Artista Awardee, ang isa pang special award that night ay ang Darling of the Press kung saan nominado sina Dingdong Dantes, Allan K, Diether Ocampo, Luis Manzano, at Regine Velasquez.

 

Headed by PMPC president and overall chairman na si Rommel Gonzales, hindi biro ang mag-mount para sa grupo ng ganitong kalaking showbiz industry event. Mabuti na lang daw at may producer pa ring nagtitiwala sa PMPC—ang GARP Productions.

 

Ngayong June 2008 nakatakdang ganapin ang 24th PMPC Star Awards for Movies sa AFP Theater sa Quezon City.
