FILM ACADEMY AWARDS NOMINEES LISTED
Quezon City, April 18, 2001 - After the Star, Urian, and FAMAS Awards comes the Film Academy of the Philippines Awards, set for May 5. The various guilds under the FAP submitted their respective nominees. It'll be noted, however, that there are no nominees for best musical scorer.
United Film Music Directors Association of the Philippines with Josefino Cenizal as president didn't submit its list of nominees as those who merit nomination refused to renew their membership over differences with the guild's leadership.
Under FAP rules, non-members or those members who are no longer in good standing are not eligible for nomination.
Jeffrey Quizon, who was a standout in "Markova," is not a member of the Actors Guild and therefore was not nominated best supporting actor, which he previously won four times, including the Metro filmfest. Jeffrey missed scoring a grandslam by one award, FAP. To be considered a grandslammer, an actor ought to win the Star, Urian, FAMAS, and FAP awards in one year.
