Superstar Nora AunorAs expected, the Philippine film “Thy W o m b ” shone in the recent Venice Film Festival, bagging three special awards from the Italian Film Critics (Bisato D’ Oro).

It garnered the Best Movie award for its humanitarian theme, Best Actress award for Nora Aunor, and Best Director award for Brilliante Mendoza. Nora was accorded standing ovation during ceremonies held before the awards night.

As of this writing, “Thy Womb” was strongly competing in the Toronto (Canada) Film Festival, together with another Philippine entry, “Bwakaw,” which topbills Eddie Garcia. Hope for the success of the entries during the award rites.[box type=”default” size=”large”] Senator Bong vs Senator Lito [/box]Curiously, after so many decades in showbiz, Senators Lito Lapid and Bong Revilla topbill for the first time a teleserye. Bong started doing “Indio” for Kapuso network, while Lito begins shooting “Little Champ” for the Kapamilya station. Does it mean the two top networks would pit the two at the same telecast time?

Senator Bong vs Senator Lito in offing at the boob tube?

Whom do you think would emerge the winner in terms of nationwide viewership? Bong’s series is a period movie starting from the Spanish regime, so to speak. It’s a highbudgeted epic project of GMA-7.

Lito’s project, a fantasy-action at that, tells of a kutsero with a talking horse to boot. He is topcast with some kid stars.  Bong has Jennylyn Mercado and Rhian Ramos as co-stars.[box type=”default” size=”large”] Robin okays Kylie’s teleserye [/box]When Robin Padilla’s daughter Kylie was offered the lead role in “Haram,” a new drama series for GMA-7, she asked first her dad’s permission. You see the plot revolves around a Muslim girl falling in love with a Christian soldier played by Dingdong Dantes.

“My dad said ‘yes’ as long as my role won’t antagonize or put Islam in a bad light. I didn’t see anything wrong in the script so I accepted it,” says Kylie who’s a singer-composer, too.

Kylie seems elated over her new album. Could it be a song reportedly she dedicated to Aljur Abrenica, her rumored BF, included in the album? Looks like Kyle’s vocal about her sweetness with Aljur.
