Vilma Santos Wins Third International Best Actress Award

The Star for All Seasons, Ms Vilma Santos was recently commended as Best Actress at the Dhaka International Film Festival held in Bangladesh last Saturday, January 18 for her stunning performance as as bit player in the indie film, EKSTRA.

The film was entered in the Australasian Film Competition section where it competed against 21 other entries. This is the country's sole entry in the said category.

This is Vilma's third international Best Actress award where she bagged her first for "Bata, Bata, Paano Ka Ginawa?" at the 1999 Brussels International Film Festival and for "Dekada 70" at the 2003 Cinemanila International Film Festival.

The awards season will be exciting for this year as it's expected that Vilma will be competing head on with her arch rival the Superstar Nora Aunor for the Best Actress award. I'm hoping for a tie where both of them are present in the awards night. Definitely, it will be a rare opportunity that their followers would love to happen again.
