For the film debut of Tippy Dos Santos in I Do Bidoo Bidoo, she was nominated in the Best New Female Actress category of the Star Awards for Movies.
But winning, she said, is the furthest thing from her mind.
Through her manager Carlo Orosa, she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), “I am not expecting anything... But to be nominated is already a prize for me.
"I Do Bidoo Bidoo is nominated for more than 10 awards, so I am really thankful that I was chosen to be part of that landmark film.”
The nomination came as a bonus.
"To be casted in [the film] alone was already such a big blessing,
"I got to work with such a brilliant and very nice director, direk Chris Martinez, and I was able to work with the most talented people in the industry— My Dad Tito Gary, Mommy Zsa Zsa Padilla, Tita Uge [Eugene] Domingo, Tito Ogie Alcasid, and others...
"But to also be nominated for an award, is just an even bigger gift,” added Tippy.
Currently, Tippy is juggling her studies and showbiz career.
She's part of ABS-CBN teen comedy show Luv U and the movie Raketeros, preparing for her upcoming album, and also taking up Family Life at the University of the Philippines.
