Ai-Ai delas Alas won her 2nd Best Actress trophy by performing in the movie Ang Tanging Ina Mo (Last na ‘To) during the 27th Star Awards for Movies last June 21, 2011 at Newport Performing Arts Theater of Resorts World Hotel Manila. It was December 2008 when her first Best Actress Award was given to her during Metro Manila Film Festival.
It was an honor for an actress to be awarded as Best Actress. She was very happy during her speech. And of course, it’s always part of her to joke and make people laugh.
“Salamat naman di nasayang ‘yong gown ko!”
“Maraming-maraming salamat po siyempre sa aking ABS-CBN family—kay Ma’am Charo [Santos-Concio], kay Tita Cory [Vidanes], siyempre kay Sir Gabby [Lopez].
“Kay Tita Malou [Santos], kay Ms. [Tess] Fuentes, kay Roxy [Liquigan].
“Salamat din po siyempre sa aking direktor, si Direk Wenn Deramas sa pagpapa-okay mo sa akin.
“Salamat Direk kahit last na ‘to—ito ay hindi pa rin last na magsasama tayo.
“Siyempre pa sa aking best friend sa pelikula, si Eugene [Domingo].”
“A, ‘tsaka sa mga anak ko po sa Tanging Ina… At saka, actually meron akong listahan, baka may makalimutan ako. Di ko naman to ine-expect!”
“Baka magalit sila sa akin… Sa mga anak ko po sa pelikula, maraming-marami pong salamat.
