Asia’s Multimedia Star Alden Richards adds another feat in his career milestones as he won ‘Movie Actor of the Year’ at the recently held 36th Star Awards for Movies by the Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC).

The Kapuso actor bagged the award for his exceptional role in the blockbuster film ‘Hello, Love, Goodbye’ in 2019. He also won the ‘Movie Loveteam of the Year’ alongside his onscreen partner Kathryn Bernardo.



In a recorded speech, Alden expressed his gratitude to the award-giving body and to those who were part of their movie, “Nagpapasalamat po ako sa Philippine Movie Press Club sa pagbibigay po sa akin ng ‘Movie Actor of the Year’ para sa ‘Hello, Love, Goodbye’. Maraming maraming salamat po at tinangkilik po ninyo ang aming pelikula and that it made history at sa lahat po ng mga nakasama ko sa film, especially Direk Cathy, sa lahat ng cast, kay Kathryn, sa lahat po ng bumubuo ng movie. Sa lahat po ng mga nagtiwalang press sa PMPC, maraming maraming salamat po and patuloy po kayong mag-iingat. See you soon po!”

Aside from Alden, Kapuso artists David Licauco and Michelle Dee took home the ‘New Movie Actor and Actress of the Year’ titles for the movie ‘Because I Love You’.

David was thankful and humbled to accept the award, “I never expected to be in showbiz, I never expected to see myself on TV, and what more now that I actually have an award from PMPC. It’s just so surreal. I just want to thank PMPC for this award, this will make me improve on my craft and do well. I want to say thank you to my manager, GMA Artist Center, GMA Network, for trusting and believing in me. I promise to do better and stick to our vision which is to entertain people.”

Michelle, on the other hand, dedicated her first-ever acting award to her family, “Napakalaking karangalan po nito since ‘Because I Love You’ is actually one of the first films that I shot throughout my acting career kaya nakakataba po talaga ng puso. I’d like to thank everyone who supported me and I’d also like to thank Direk Joel Lamangan for your guidance throughout the film kasi without you, hindi ko ‘to mahahawakan. Iba pala ‘yung feeling ‘pag hawak mo na ‘yung trophy. But I would like to dedicate this award actually to my parents, Melanie Marquez and Derek Dee, for their unwavering support throughout my career.”

Meanwhile, actor and Nagbabagang Luha director Ricky Davao was recognized as the ‘Movie Supporting Actor of the Year’ for the independent film ‘Fuccbois.’

“This is a first na tumatanggap ako ng award sa panahon ng pandemya, at para itong Zoom meeting but really, Philippine Movie Press Club, Star Awards, pagkatapos ng dalawang dekada, napansin ninyo ako, maraming maraming salamat. Ang award na ito ay maituturing kong pang-boost ng immune system ko, nakakataba po ng puso, sobra po akong masaya rito at nagbibigay ito ng hope na ipagpatuloy ko pa ang aking passion, ang pagiging artista ko at ang paggawa ng pelikula.”

The virtual awarding ceremony was hosted by Kapuso stars Sanya Lopez and Alfred Vargas.
