SARAH Geronimo’s acting in the Filipino adaptation of the Korean film “Miss Granny” did not go unnoticed.
On Monday, the list of nominees for the 67th FAMAS Awards was finally revealed and Geronimo is in the running for best actress.
She is competing with Judy Ann Santos, Gabby Padilla, Perla Bautista, Angelica Panganiban, Glaiza de Castro, Iyah Mina, Nadine Lustre, Pokwang and Anne Curtis.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News after she was launched as the new Phoenix Super LPG brand ambassador on Thursday, the singer-actress said she is grateful for the recognition.
“Maraming salamat po para sa nomination. Napakalaking karangalan po ‘yun,” she said, unable to wipe the smile off her face.
“Yung ma-nominate lang, okay na po ako doon. Pero sana, sana po,” she added.
The movie “Miss Granny” sees Geronimo as the young version of Nova Villa, whose character regains her 20s appearance after being photographed at a mysterious studio curiously called, Forever Young.
She finds the transformation as a means of escaping personal problems, including a rift with her children and her grandchildren, whom she feels no longer value her.
Since its release in August last year, Geronimo has yet to star in another big-screen project. However, the singer-actress said her supporters will have to wait a little while more.
“We are finalizing the script po. Mas pinapaganda pa,” she said about her next film. “It’s a story that will move our hearts, our souls and ‘yung kahalagahan din ng mga hayop.”
Without disclosing any other details, Geronimo said the movie, which has the working title “Unforgettable,” will be helmed by Jun Robles Lana. (ABS-CBN News)
