John Lloyd Cruz, nominated para sa isang international film award!
Despite currently being on an indefinite leave from showbiz, famed actor John Lloyd Cruz is still getting some gains.
The 15th International Cinephile Society (ICS) had nominated Cruz as Best Supporting Actor for Lav Diaz’s Ang Babaeng Humayo; where he plays a transvestite named Hollanda who befriends Horacia, played by veteran actress and ABS-CBN chief content officer Charo Santos.
The same film had already won an accolade from the 73rd Venice International Film Festival two years ago in 2016. Ang Babaeng Humayo won the top prize for the event.
The winners for Best Supporting Actor and other ICS Awards will be announced on February 4. Other international actors nominated for the award are American actors Willem Dafoe (Spiderman), Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger), and Michael Stuhlbarg (Boardwalk Empire). Irish actor Barry Keoghan of movie Dunkirk and French actor Arnaud Valois of BPM are also in the running for bagging the title of Best Supporting Actor.
