In the recent past, Shamaine Centenera has garnered awards and accolades for her performances in local indie films. This year, she vies for Cinemalaya’s best actress award for her performance in REquieme!.


Last year’s Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival Best Supporting Actress awardee, Shamaine Centenera-Buencamino, for the New Breed entry, Niño, faces another tough challenge in this year’s festival.

Bilang supporting actress nagwagi si Shamaine noong isang taon, ngayon taon naman ay best actress ang kategorya niya para sa pelikulang REquieme!.

Ito ay mula sa writer-director team din ng Niño na sina Rody Vera at Loy Arcenas.

Ang REquieme! ay isang black comedy tungkol sa isang buong bayan ng mga tsismoso at tsismosa na nais maging malapit sa isang kilabot na mamamatay-tao.

“Alam mo, kakaibang comedy siya!” sabi ni Shamaine sa panayam sa kanya ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal).

“Ang pagkaka-describe ni Loy sa pelikula, e, ‘black comedy.’

“Gusto ko na ngang mapanood. Kasi si Loy, galing siya sa ibang bansa, so doon, sanay sila sa irony.

“Tayo, hindi.

“Hindi ko alam kung ano’ng dating sa mga Pinoy.”

Bilang comedy-satire, mala-Woody Allen ang pagkakalahad ng kuwento, na maraming Pinoy ang posibleng maka-relate.

Ang REquieme! ay base sa dulang-pampelikulang akda ni Rody Vera, and inspired by a short story, Cunanan’s Wake, na isinulat ni Gina Apostol.

May inspirasyon din ang kuwento ng REquieme! sa karanasan ng kaibigan ni Vera, hinggil sa bureaucracy o red tape.

“Nung ginagawa namin ang pelikula, tanong ko kay [Direk] Loy, ‘Magpapatawa ba ako?’ Pero sabi niya, ‘Hindi.’ So, sabi ko, ‘O, sige...’

“The situation siguro, as it is, mukhang nakakatawa na.

“Grabe ang mata niya for details!”


ASIAN FILM AWARDS. Nagwagi rin ng Best Supporting Actress award si Shamaine sa Asian Film Awards 2012 para pa rin sa Niño.

Kasabay niyang nagwagi ang actress-comedian na si Eugene Domingo, who won the People’s Choice title at the Asian Film Awards for Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank.

“Si Uge won for… Popular Choice ang tawag nila, yung binu-vote ng mga tao. Pero ang nanalong best actress, taga-Hong Kong [Deanie Ip].

“Ako naman, best supporting actress, na jury doon ang bumoto.

“Yung para sa Best Actress/Actor lang ang pinagbobotohan through the Internet,” paliwanag niya.

At last year’s 7th Cinemalaya Filmfest Awards ceremonies, sina Uge at Shamaine din ang big winners, respectively, for Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank and Niño.

Napanalunan din ni Shamaine ang Best Supporting Actress trophy sa Golden Screen Awards ng Entertainment Press Society thhis year, para pa rin sa Niño.


URIAN AWARDS. Sa 35th Gawad Urian rites of the Manunuri ng Pelikulang Pilipino noong June 13, si Shamaine ay inasahan ding magwawagi sa pagganap sa Niño.

Nag-expect din ba si Shamaine na magwawagi ng parangal sa Gawad Urian?

“Hindi naman nag-expect, pero kumbaga, pag nominado ka sa kahit ano’ng paligsahan, siyempre umaasa ka.

“Kasi lahat kayo may chance, e. So, hindi mo masasabi, hanggang sa tawagin na yung pangalan mo, hindi mo masasabi.

“Magaling naman si Jean,” sabi pa ni Shamaine, ang tinutukoy ay si Jean Garcia, na nanalo para sa Ang Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa.

“Palagay ko, kumbaga... the fact na sweep ang Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa, nagustuhan talaga nila yung pelikula.

“At matatanggap ko rin kung bakit nila nagustuhan ang Sayaw... kasi poetic siya, e.

“It appeals to the academicians, mga manunulat...

“Pero masaya na ako, na na-nominate ako. Pagsisikapan ko na lang sa susunod.”
