Her “As is, Where is” method of acting, which we learned from Eugene Domingo in Ang Babae sa Septic Tank, proves to be a hit at Cannes Film Festival. Hence, she was awarded with the highest honor given to a female lead star in a feature film. Though she has faced criticism from foreign media and film observers, members of the jury were quick to defend Jaclyn and her “natural and excellent” performance in the film. So, how can we argue with that?
Maria Isabel Lopez
She was outlandish and fabulous. That’s how netizens describe her after her recent outing at Cannes Film Festival. While she did not intend to steal the spotlight from the lead stars of Ma’ Rosa in the red carpet event, her pictures that went viral online said otherwise. On the brighter side, it actually helped oblivious millennials to know who she is. Now, they want her to be a gay icon.
She may have lost the top spot in the latest FHM sexiest poll from Jessy Mendiola but that doesn’t make the Kapuso actress any less a big star. She’s actually the brightest name in her mother network at the moment being the busiest, not to mention most bankable talent. Jennylyn is now recording a new CD and is also preparing for another movie, a follow up to her already blockbuster film with John Lloyd Cruz. It’s about time that we give this girl a moniker, perhaps something that starts with “Queen.”

He was tapped as a potential matinee idol until someone better looking and perhaps more talented was favored by his former studio. By the way, he’s now a Kapamilya. He recently signed a fresh contract with Mother Ignacia based network in hopes that it will give his career a little boost. We, too, are optimistic about this endeavor that’s why we are giving Vin a chance before we go and say “He tried but failed to make it happen.”
We were once asked whether or not we watch Ang Panday. We retorted with another question: Are you referring to the DVDs of the classic Ang Panday, the recent film versions or the one that starred Jericho Rosales? Although we hardly revisit any of the Panday series or movies, we were surprised that the person asking us was actually referring to the one TV5 and Viva Entertatainment produced. Apparently, the most recent reimagining of Ang Panday with Richard Gutierrez has been airing since February. If you are not aware of that, it’s not a problem. With ratings not close enough to make the two networks agitated, we can expect the show to fade to black any time soon.
Pinoy Big Brother
Most likely you have already heard that Bahay ni Kuya is recruiting new housemates. That means, we will be seeing long queues again on Mother Ignacia and in satellite audition venues. We can’t blame showbiz wannabes for this so-called easy ticket to fame and fortune but we don’t want them getting their hopes higher than what the show can offer. In more than a decade history of PBB, we already know how housemates are chosen, and it’s not the process most people know.
