Actress Judy Ann Santos was named Best Actress at the 41st Cairo International Film Festival which was held in Egypt last November 29.
Known as the “Queen of Philippine Teleserye,” Juday took to social media to share how she knew about her winning the global recognition.
“Yung nagising ako kaninang umaga nang gulat na gulat at takang-taka kung bakit ako kino- congratulate ng napakaraimng kaibigan ko sa text,” the first part of her caption reads. “Hindi naman ako buntis. Hindi naman ako kasali sa SEA games. Hindi rin naman ako nanalo sa lotto. Mas higit pa pala sa lotto ang napanalunan ko!”
She also had a humorous take on what she could be doing during the warding ceremony.
“Sa malamang habang tinatawag ang pangalan ko sa Egypt. kasalukuyan kong iniiskoba ang sahig ng kusina ko sa angrydobo,” she said.
Judy Ann impressed the international audience with her performance in Brillante Mendoza’s movie “Mindanao.” She was also recognized as the “main asset” of the film, according to Screen Daily’s review.
Last October, she was also applauded for her role during the movie’s world premiere in Busan International Film Festival.
The actress thanked everyone who supported her throughout the years she spent in acting. She also felt proud that she has represented her country in the film industry.
“Iba’t ibang lugar ang napuntahan ko sa iba’t ibang larangan ng industriyang mahal ko at patuloy kong inaaral. Maraming maraming salamat po. Sa inyong lahat na patuloy na naniniwala at nagtitiwala sa aking munting kakayahan bilang artista at kusinera,” she said.
“My heart is soooooo full!! Iba ang pilipino! MABUHAY ANG PILIPINAS!”
