h otoryorwho really won that metro filmfest in terms of box office and acting?

Unknown said...

so who is the top grosser of 1982 MMFF?

i know the acting category was Himala

Nakalimutan yung best story category. Nanalo dyan si Ricky Lee for Himala. Best Screenplay din si Ricky Lee for Moral. So 10 ang award ng Himala hindi 9.

i miss those days na hindi mo matiyak sino ang magta-top grosser dahil "fair" ang labanan. unlike nowadays na alam mo na agad na star cinema hindi pa man nag start ang festival.
