How many times has she proven to us that she is the Millennial Multi-hyphenate? Actor, recording artist, dancer, model, host, music video director, chief creative designer, entrepreneur, and so much more under her belt, Nadine is truly deserving of her title as the Multimedia Princess.
Having entered the entertainment industry at the age of seven, Nadine has gone through a lot from all the rejections to triumphs that came because of hard work and passion for her craft.
Her success did not happen overnight. It was when she headlined the movie adaptation of the hit Wattpad story ‘Diary ng Panget’ with reel to real partner Multimedia Prince James Reid that she started to climb to the top.
Given all her blockbuster movies, sold-out concert tours here and abroad, dozens of magazine covers, phenomenal teleseryes, countless local and international awards, successful business ventures, global brand endorsements, and inspiring advocacies, Nadine is definitely on top of her game.
Recently, the Film Desk of the Young Critics Circle (YCC) named her as the “Best Performer of 2018” for her amazing portrayal of Joanne Candelaria in the movie “Never Not Love You.” Formed in 1990, other winners of the same recognition for the past years include Nora Aunor, Christopher De Leon, Vilma Santos, Janice de Belen, Maricel Soriano, and Eula Valdez.
YCC is composed of film critics and academics from universities such as University of the Philippines Diliman, Ateneo de Manila University, University of Sto. Tomas, University of the Philippines Mindanao, and Philippine High School for the Arts.
Nominees under the same category are Perla Bautista (Dapithapon), trio performance of Perla Bautista, Menggie Cobarrrubias, and Dante Rivero (Kung Paano Hinintay and Dapithapon), Celeste Legaspi (Mamang), Ina Raymundo (Kuya Wes), and Marietta Subong (Oda sa Wala).
Directed by Antoinette Jadaone, the film, which was featured in an international film festival in India, also won “Best Sound and Aural Orchestration.”
“Never Not Love You” tackled the story of young and reckless love, how love affects life, and how life affects love.
Meanwhile, movie critics have also spoken on Nadine’s latest movie, “Ulan,” which bravely challenged the norms among mainstream Filipino films with its out of the box overall treatment.
Written and directed by Irene Emma Villamor, “Ulan” is still showing in more than 200 cinemas nationwide! Don’t miss it!
