It’s time for the local awards season once again.

The Philippine Movie Press Club, Inc. announced the official nominees of the 31st PMPC Star Awards for Movies, which will be held on March 8, 2015, 6 P.M., at The Theater, Solaire, Parañaque City.

The nominees for Movie Actress of the Year (Best Actress) are: Nora Aunor (Dementia), Anne Curtis (The Gifted), Eugene Domingo (Barber’s Tales), Cherie Gil (Mana), Toni Gonzaga (Starting Over Again), Aiko Melendez (Asintado), and Jennylyn Mercado (English Only, Please).

The nominees for Movie Actor of the Year (Best Actor) are: Robert Arevalo (Hari Ng Tondo), John Lloyd Cruz (The Trial), John Estrada (Trophy Wife), Robin Padilla (Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo), Piolo Pascual (Starting Over Again), Derek Ramsay (English Only, Please), and Dennis Trillo (The Janitor).

The awards show will honor the best achievements of artists and craftsmen of the Philippine movie industry for the past year (2014).

It is expected that this year's ceremonies will be as star-studded and glamour-filled, with the presence of popular entertainers and talented artists, as awards contenders.

A highlight of the event is served to honor two veteran luminaries of the movies: a veteran celluloid icon and a prolific film director, both multi-awarded and have succeeded in crossing-over through this digital age of Tagalog movies.

Their talents, as actor and director, have persisted with much success and acclaim.

This year's Nora Aunor Ulirang Artista Lifetime Achievement Award recipient (named after the acknowledged “People's National Artist” and Superstar) is Ms. Celia Rodriguez.

On equal standing is the much revered master filmmaker, director Maryo J. delos Reyes, a veteran of such classics as High School Circa '65 (1978), Annie Batungbakal (1979), Bagets (1984), and Magnifico (2003), to be given the Ulirang Alagad Ng Pelikula Sa Likod Ng Kamera Lifetime Achievement Award.

The 31st PMPC Star Awards for Movies is a production of blocktimer Airtime Marketing, Inc., headed by producer Tessie Celestino-Howard, in cooperation with the Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC), Inc. under the leadership of Joe Barrameda, current president and over-all chairman.
