AFTER receiving nominations & winnings from PMPC Star Awards for TV for his scripts in different TV Dramas like The Maricel Regal Drama Special, MMK and many more; for the first time, Direk Ronald Carballo was nominated for Best Screenplay in the 34th PMPC Star Awards for Movies for the movie Bhoy Intsik.
Aside from his nomination, the movie was also nominated in 11 major categories including Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best New Movie Actor, Best Director & Best Movie Of The Year.
We accidentally met Direk Ronaldo at the supermarket in Fishermall. We asked him about his nomination. “Very meaningful sa akin ang nomination na ito dahil bigay ng mga dati kong collegues sa PMPC at Entertainment Writing. Sana manalo ako. Malaking tulong sa timing ng bago kong sisimulang mainstream-indie film this March, 2018.
“I will be forever grateful to PMPC who always loved me & especially to our Dear LORD na kailanaman ay di ako pinababayaan.” This was the end of the interview while catching live shrimp and fish in the specialty section of the said supermarket.
During 80’s and 90’s, he was nominated for Best Screenplay in different award giving bodies, including Dingding Lang ang Pagitan, Hiram na Mukha & Tag-araw, Tag-ulan.
Congratulations in advanced, Director Ronald!
