Kris Aquino reacted on Laguna Governor ER Ejercito’s comments on the 37th Metro Manila Film Festival Best Actor controversy.
After actor Dingdong Dantes was hailed as the best performing actor in this year’s festival, Ejercito was not able to hide his discouragement over the result.
ER said, he was actually hoping to take home the Best Actor award for his action film ‘Manila Kingpin: The Asiong Salonga Story.’
Meanwhile, in a television guesting with Dingdong on ‘Gandang Gabi Vice,’ though Kris was reluctant to answer the issue, she explained that what she really prayed for was for Dingdong to bag the Best Actor award and for the movie to rank second in the box-office result.
Kris actually received a call from Pres. Noy Aquino before the guesting to refrain adding fuel to the fire.
Dingdong’s Best Actor award was the only trophy received by Segunda Mano while Manila Kingpin bagged 11 of the technical and major recognitions.
