Despite winning two Best Actress trophies before Gawad Urian, Millennial Multi-hyphenate Nadine Lustre still did not expect to be chosen by the “Manunuri ng Pelikulang Pilipino” for the highly-coveted award.
“It feels so surreal,” she said. “Nakita ko nga si Ms. Cherie Gil na umiiyak. Ang pinaka tumatak na sinabi niya is lahat ng mga artista, pangarap ito.”
The award-winning actress was not able to attend the ceremony because of work, but she saw some posts and updates online about the event.
“Doon ko na-realize kung gaano kalaki at kung gaano ka-importante ‘yung Gawad Urian para sa mga artista na katulad ko,” Nadine continued.
The “Indak” star still could not believe that she bagged all three Best Actress plums by the Young Critics Circle, FAMAS, and the “Manunuri.”
“Parang hindi kasi siya totoo. Kasi sa dami ng nangyari sa akin nung nagshu-shoot kami ng “Never Not Love You,” hindi ko na-imagine na tatatak pala ‘yung pag-arte ko sa pelikulang ito,” she stated.
Nadine previously admitted in an interview that she almost did not push through with the project following her brother’s death, but that incident motivated and inspired her to do better.
“I’m just really thankful na pinarangalan ako ng ‘Manunuri ng Pelikulang Pilipino’ ng ganitong klase ng award. Hindi ko talaga siya inexpect,” the YCC, FAMAS, and Gawad Urian Best Actress awardee said.
The 25-year old multi-faceted artist is also grateful to Direk Tonet, Direk Dan, and all the people who are a huge part of her life and helped her become the person she is today. Watch it here!
