Piolo Pascual, together with Ericson Raymundo, Joyce Bernal, and Shayne Sarte, questioned the result of the film festival. The movie did not take home even a single trophy in the competition.
“It was very unfortunate that ‘Kimmy Dora: Ang Kiyemeng Prequel’ and its lead actress, Eugene Domingo, did not get the right recognition due them. Its director, Chris Martinez, was not even nominated based on the merits of the film,” the statement read.
What Eugene Domingo received that night was the Female Star of the Night award. She even joked about it that it’s a consolation prize for her of not winning the Best Actress.
