Young Critics Circle Film Desk Awards for 2006 to Inang Yaya

YCC bares winners of film awards



THE Film Desk of the Young Critics Circle formally announces the winners of its annual film awards. “Inang Yaya” directed by Pablo Biglang-Awa and Veronica Velasco makes a clean sweep of the YCC honors for all categories, namely, Best Film of the Year given to the directors; Best Screenplay; Best Cinematography and Visual Design; Best Editing; Best Sound and Aural Orchestration and Best Performance for lead actress Maricel Soriano.



From the past year’s total local film output of 49 regular releases and more productions including digitals that had multiple screenings in any public venue that a paying audience has had access, “Inang Yaya” produced by Unitel Pictures emerged as the sole nominee and ultimate winner for most of the categories for the YCC film awards.



Only two other films managed to figure in YCC roll of honor this year by scoring nominations: “Kubrador” (MLR Films) with nods for Best Cinematography and Visual Design and Best Editing and “Kaleldo” (Centerstage) with Cherry Pie Picache in the roster for Best Performance. Nominated as well for Best Performance is the entire acting ensemble of “Inang Yaya.”



Awarding is on Thursday afternoon of March 8 at 2 p.m. at the Faculty Center Conference Hall in UP Diliman.



Established in 1990, YCC is the critics group with members coming from various disciplines. Through the years, they have become attentive observers of Philippine cinema constantly bringing into the analysis of film an interdisciplinary approach.



The organization departs from many conventions of other award-giving bodies both here and abroad in bestowing cinematic honors. For instance, the award for Best Film of the Year is reserved for the director such that no separate prize for direction is needed. The Best Performance award is most coveted as it is conferred on a screen performer whether male or female, adult or child, individual or as part of an ensemble, in leading or supporting role. To uphold a more dynamic and encompassing way of looking at films, technical honors refer to fusion of outstanding efforts in fields otherwise deemed apart. In this case, the Best Cinematography and Visual Design recognition covers both camerawork and art direction. Similarly, Best Sound and Aural Orchestration encompasses not just sound engineering per se but musical score as well.



The following is the roundup of complete winners and nominees for this year’s YCC film awards officially billed as the 17th Annual Circle Citations for Distinguished Achievement in Film for 2006:

  • I watched INANG YAYA with my wife and two friends. The film is made up of a series of "small moments." The fact is, the entire movie is made up of pureness. This is a film of real life, real people, real emotions.

    Inang Yaya is a film to be cherished. Kudos to YCC... Excellent choice indeed.

    Congratulations :)
  • I cried buckets watching this movie. Marya was able to transformed herself into Norma the Inang Yaya. It's like magic. I can't think of anyone more deserving than marya to get the top prize in the actress category this year.
  • ohsomeohsome PEx Rookie ⭐
    YCC had made the right choices. Inang Yaya is one of the best lineups in recent memory. The film able to rise above its subject matter and connect emotionally to the audience.

    i watched this movie 'Inang Yaya' 4 times. :lol: Pati nga ho daddy ko na nde nanonood ng pinoy movies ay nahila ko na manood ng movie with my mom. My Dad was impressed with the film. :) In my opinion, ms. maricel soriano should get a grandslam best actress award for her incredibly powerful and subtle performance in Inang Yaya. super husay niya, facial expression and body movements ang ginamit pero kuha niya ang audience niya.

    Ive learned a lot po from this film :) Inang Yaya should be recognized worldwide. The film epitomizes the characters of a modern Filipina: honest, integrity, strength and decisiveness.
  • malapit na ang awarding.. may live coverage kaya ito?
  • YCC does not have TV coverage. it veers away from convential award giving practices by focusing on discussion rather than TV production. the awarding is low-key, open to the public, and will have an open forum after. you are all welcome to attend.

    The awarding is rather short and simple.

    Nagsimula sa Pambansang Awit.
    Tapos, Ulat ni Dr. Patrick Flores tungkol sa Achievements in Film for the year 2006.

    49 Films daw ang ginawa last year. Marami daw ang Digital.

    After ng speech ng presidente, nagsalita na ang guest Speaker.

    I didn't get her name, but the theme was about Imahinasyong Babae...at the whole speech was rather intelligent eventhough it was in Filipino at kakaunti lamang ang mga english words.
    Napakaganda ng paglalarawan sa babae at sa imahinasyong babae.

    Then another member of the YCC panel recited two poems. Both speak of Womanhood.

    Then the awarding began.

    They present the nominee in visual, then deliver an explanation why it was nominated. Afterwhich, they will name the winner and yet deliver again the explanation why it was named winner.

    Pretty much ganon kasimple ang awarding.

    Of course, ang highlight for us would be Inay's speech.

    When she was called sinabi niya na nagpapasalamat siya sa YCC dahil sa paniniwala sa kanyang kakayahan. Marami daw ang hindi naniwala in the past pero maraming salamat dahil sila patuloy na naniniwala sa kanya.

    Nagpasalamat din siya kay Tony Gloria at sa mga directors na sina Direk Pablo at Roni Velasco who also won Best Screenplay.

    She made mention na ang pagganap daw na kinikilala sa kanya sa Inang Yaya ay dahil daw sa makatotohanang pag arte ng dalawang bata na sina Tala Santos at Ericka Oreta..at kung hindi daw sa kanila..hindi rin daw siya makakapag deliver ng isang makatotohanang pagganap kaya bahagi daw sila ng award na iyon.

    CinemaOne was there for a short interview regarding the award and she thanked us in that video interview. Im just not sure kung kelan ipapakita sa Cinemanews alert ng CinemaOne basta stay tuned siguro.

    Inay was not able to stay for the discussion kasi nga 5pm ang call time sa taping at almost 5 na natapos ang awarding kasi kumanta pa si Grace Nono ng awit-dasal na siya lang yata ang nakaintindi kasi ibang lengguwahe.

    Natawa lang kami nung hinatid namin siya sa sasakyan kasi may mga ilang tao na nagugulat sa dinaraanan niya...meron pa ngang isang babae dun na estudyante pero sumigaw siya ng Oh my God nang makita si Inay na naglalakad sa hallway.

    Siyempre nagpapasalamat tayong lahat sa YCC.

    Correction lang po..hindi naman pala inisnab ng YCC ang Kubrador totally dahil nominated sila sa Editing at sa Cinematography.

    Kanina bago kami umuwi from the studio...sabi ng Inay salamat daw sa ating lahat..at sana daw sunod sunod pa ang awards...at ipagdasal daw natin ang pananalo niya.

    BTW, nood kayo ng Homeboy bukas...napakaganda daw ng mensahe niya para sa lahat ng fans niya...sana lang wag mai edit.
