Showbiz reporter Lolit Solis recently expressed her thoughts on the MIFF (Manila International Film Festival) 2024 Best Actor category, reacting to Piolo Pascual and Dingdong Dantes sharing the prestigious award for their roles in "Mallari" and "Rewind," respectively.
In her Instagram post, Lolit conveyed a sense of surprise and disappointment that Christopher de Leon, starring in "When I Met You in Tokyo," was not even nominated in the category. Lolit highlighted the strong reactions from Christopher's supporters, indicating that while the winning actors, Piolo and Dingdong, were deserving, the absence of Christopher's name among the nominees was a shock to many.
She acknowledged the controversy surrounding awards nights but emphasized Christopher de Leon's enduring status as the "King of Drama," assuring that regardless of the outcome, his legacy remains untarnished.
”Talagang naging issue Salve ang Best Actor category ng MIFF ha. Talagang ang harsh ng reaction ni Redgie Magno na hindi man lang nominated sa Best Actor si Christopher de Leon. Sure ako si Christopher mismo tinatawanan ang issue pero talagang mismong mga supporters niya ang hindi ito matanggap. Ok naman sila Piolo Pascual at Dingdong Dantes na manalo, pero iyon hindi man lang nasali ang pangalan ni Christopher de Leon sa mga nominated man lang, ito talaga ang ikinagulat ng lahat.

“Marami ang talagang humanga sa very casual na atake niya sa role niya sa pelikula nila ni Vilma Santos na win as Best Actress, pero parang hindi ito nakita ng mga jurors. Well, lagi naman may controversy sa awards night kaya ituring na lang na isa ito sa mga issue na lumutang. Basta wala ng puwede pang umagaw sa trono ng King of Drama kay Christopher de Leon, tatak na niya iyon forever. Kahit sino pa manalo, pag andiyan si Christopher tiyak na laging magkakaruon ng shadow of doubt kaya you will just take it with a grain of salts. Bongga di bah“
Lolit Solis is an entertainment reporter, talent manager, and host in the Philippines. She is well-known for her frank commentaries about showbiz.
In a previous Instagram post, Manay Lolit defended President Bongbong Marcos against those bashing him for using a helicopter to go to the Coldplay concert. It can be recalled that the British rock band held a concert at the sprawling Philippine Arena January 20 and 21. President BBM, along with First Lady Liza Araneta-Marcos, were among the celebrities who flocked to the arena, though they earned some degree of bashing for using a helicopter to go to the event. According to Manay Lolit, President BBM is doing a lot for the country and deserves a comfortable break, adding that going there using a chopper is befitting of his rank as the country’s leader.
Meanwhile, in another social media post, the veteran showbiz columnist expressed her thoughts on all the good things that are happening to Dingdong Dantes this year. The veteran columnist said that Dong is very busy, with all the projects and work that he has. She also said that those who work with Dong always like working with him. Manay then noted that with more work, there is more income, which makes Marian Rivera as "bonggang-bongga."
