Maricel Soriano Snubs MMFF 2011 Best Actress Award

Maricel Soriano Snubs MMFF 2011 Best Actress Award

Despite its disqualification, Regal Films' entry to this year's Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) "Yesterday Today Tomorrow" brings Maricel Soriano her another Best Actress trophy making her the second actress - next to Superstar Nora Aunor - to received the most number of Best Actress awards in MMFF's 37th year history.

But where is Maria to accept the award?

She and the rest of the movie's cast intentionally snubbed the awards night held on December 28 at the Resorts World Manila in Pasay City to show their sympathy to the movie's producer Mother Lily Monteverde who is really disappointed in the MMFF committee's decision to disqualify the movie exactly one day before the awards ceremony.

The family drama movie, as previously reported, was disqualified by the MMFF Executive Committee (Execom) from four major award categories: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay and the Gatpuno Villegas Cultural awards.

The committee ruled that Regal submitted a totally different script and cast as previously approved by the committee compared to the finished product now seen in cinemas.
