- The Palace decided to drop Nora Aunor from being declared as National Artist
- This is Ms. Aunor’s second time to be bypassed
- She has already commented that not being included actually spared her from the emotional and psychological torment from mixed opinions and comments from all around
In recent events, following the announcement of Ryan Cayabyab being named as a National Artist, there was a sudden surge of posts from the internet of why Nora Aunor was not included yet again.
It was back in 2014 when she was also not recognized as a National Artist.
FashionPulis was able to share Malacañang’s statement through PTV 4.
Several different speculations and opinions arose
MS. NORA AUNOR IS STILL YOUNG?!?! seryoso?!? anong kalokohan yan?!? 1. being a national artist does not require you to be of a certain age. That's like saying dapat di nanalo si Kirsten Dunst ng Oscar for The Piano because she was "still young". 2. undeniable ang contribution ni La Aunor sa film industry. ano ba ang criteria na hindi na-meet ni Nora? NBI Clearance? Blood test? kulang sa kapit?di ko talaga gets...#dontmekuya
Twice na syang na reject. First by Pnoy who did not proclaim her because of drug issues. Nominated din sya this time pero na reject din ni Duterte. So baka don din alam mo naman stance ni Duterte sa issue na yon.
Yet there were those who sided with the Palace’s decision.
Parang may mas alam kapa sa mga panelista. Kaw na kaya maupo doon. Pinaglalaban mo eh ang layo layo ng oscars sa national artist award since ikaw na mismo nagsabi na contribution ng isang artist ang basehan. Igalang mo na lang ang desisyon kasi nga nmn kusang binibigay yan hindi ipinipilit. Kung ibigay edi good for her pag wala edi tanggapin. Mas tanggap pa ni Nora kesa sayo eh.
I understand many people deserve the award and not everyone can get it at the same time. Pero why do they have to defend their choice with such reasoning? Age at sparing from bashers? Mawawala ba yang bashers? Sasagot rin lang, ayusin naman sana ang sagot. Pano naging presidential spokesperson yan?

Nora Aunor started in showbiz in 1967.

Today we are doing a social experiment in the Philippines to see how much the locals care about proper trash disposal. Littering problems have always been present in the country.
In this social experiment, you can see how different people react when a man throws a garbage bag right next to them. How will they handle the littering problem? Will they pick it up or leave it?
