THE ARTISTRY OF NORA AUNOR
For Nora Aunor, winning has become sweeter than ever... Her most recent triumphs occurred in record two successive days... Last August 29, 2013, Nora was awarded Best Actress by Gawad Tanglaw, an Academe-based group of film critics from the Colegio de San Juan de Letran in Calamba, Laguna. She, of course, won for her mesmerizing performance in Brillante Mendoza's Thy Womb.
On the following day, August 30th, Aunor earned another best actress prize (and a BIG one at that!) -- from the 3rd Sakhalin International Film Festival in Russia also for Thy Womb. The award is Nora's fourth international acting recognition for 2012 and 2013 for just a singular film. An amazing feat indeed!
Both local and foreign film critics singled out Aunor as the best of the best. And she is bound to receive another local acting award from the Young Critics Circle on September 3, 2013.
Yes, for Nora Aunor, when it rains, it really pours...
