Entertainment editors’ group unveils nominees for 5th EDDYS

Despite the previous years’ quarantine restrictions arising from spikes of coronavirus cases, the film industry still thrived and came out with finished works that The Eddys, an annual awarding ceremony organized by the Society of Philippines Entertainment Editors (SPEEd), now honors in its anticipated event.

The nominees for Best Actress

After refashioning the previous awarding ceremony online, the fifth EDDYS (Entertainment Editors’ Choice) returns with an in-person event to be held at the historic Metropolitan Theater (MET) on November 27, promising tough competition among the Filipino movies released on various platforms in 2021. 

The awards show is hosted by Boy Abunda and directed by Ice Seguerra.

Chosen films, with their cast and technicalities, will compete in 14 categories. The group recently released the list of nominees for the 5th EDDYS. 

Vying for the Best Picture Award are Arisaka, Big Night, Dito at Doon, Kun Maupay Man It Panahon, and On The Job: The Missing 8.

Meanwhile, competing in the Best Actress category are Janine Gutierrez (Dito at Doon), Kim Molina (Ang Babaeng Walang Pakiramdam), Maja Salvador (Arisaka), Charo Santos (Kun Maupay Man It Panahon), and Alessandra de Rossi (My Amanda). 

Actors joining the shortlist are John Arcilla (On The Job: The Missing 8), Christian Bables (Big Night), Dingdong Dantes (A Hard Day), Daniel Padilla (Kun Maupay Man It Panahon), and Piolo Pascual (My Amanda).

The award is presented in honor and memory of SPEEd’s founding president, Isah V. Red.

This year’s special awardees have been named as the following: entertainment reporter Mario Dumaual for the Joe Quirino Award; former entertainment editor Eric Ramos for the Manny Pichel Award; Rein Entertainment for the Rising Producers’ Circle; and Viva Films as Producer of the Year.

SPEEd celebrates the 5th EDDYS with the support of Fire and Ice Media and Productions, the company established by Liza Diño and Ice Seguerra.
