Angelica recently earned the ire of certain critics after being named Best Actress by Gawad Tanglaw for her movie That Thing Called Tadhana, where she tied with Nora Aunor who won for Dementia.

    “Totoo naman kasi ‘yung sinasabi nila, nababasa ko kasi. Si Ate Guy, ‘di kinakailangang madaldal sa  pelikula. Totoo naman, naniniwala naman ako sa inyo. Hindi ako kokontra,” Angelica said at a recently-concluded press conference of her Cinema One movie That Thing Called Tadhana opposite JM de Guzman.

    However she pointed out that it wasn’t her fault that she won the award so, “Sana hayaan na lang nila na i-enjoy ko.” She stressed, “Hindi ko rin naman sinasabi na ako na yung bagong Ate Guy, wala namang ganun, ‘di ba? Hayaan na lang nila sana na ienjoy ko ang moment na ito. I’m sure si Ate Guy, masay  ang-masaya para sa akin.”

    Amid the backlash, Angelica remained grateful that her skills were recognized for as she puts it, “Napakarare ng ganitong pagkakataon sa career ng isang artista na makatabi mo man lang ang pangalan ni Ate Guy. ‘Yun pa lang, malaking award na ‘yun para sa akin, hindi ko na kailangan ng trophy.”

    She added, “Saka Noranian at Vilmanian ako, fan ako ng dalawa dahil icon ang mga ‘yan, icons sila sa industriya.”

    But is she not pressured about the award especially since she tied with the Superstar for it? “Pressure naman tuloy ako bigla! Hindi, hindi talaga… I guess maganda rin yung ‘di ko pinapaikot ang mundo ko sa mga nakukuha kong achievements,” the multi-awarded actress replied.

    While she is flattered about her achievements and citations, Angelica said she deliberately don’t make a fuss out of them.

    “Natutuwa ako, napaflatter ako, malaking bagay siya. Pero baka ‘pag pinasok ko na siya masyado sa kukote ko eh, mag-iba na ang takbo ni Angelica. Baka lumaki ang ulo ko na ‘di maganda yun,”
    she ended.

    That Thing Called Tadhana directed by Antoinette Jadaone starring Angelica and JM will be shown in theaters nationwide starting February 4. (M. Belmonte,push.com)
