Charo Santos, Christian Bables Won Best Actress and Best Actor, 'On The Job: The Missing 8’ Big Winner at The 5th EDDYS


ERIK Matti’s crime thriller film 'On The Job: The Missing 8' walked home as the big winner at The 5th EDDYS (Entertainment Editors' Choice) held at the Manila Metropolitan Theater a week ago (November 27, 2022).

Presenting the award were Eugene Asis, SPEEd President and People’s Journal Entertainment Editor, and Charo Santos-Concio, who also won Best Actress for 'Kun Maupay Man It Panahon'.


Although Matti wasn’t around to accept the award himself, a representative from ANIMA and 'On The Job: The Missing 8' executive producer received the recognition in his stead.


“Entertainment editors selected this award for us, and I appreciate that. Because it’s a film about journalism, and it’s really important today when you see art imitate life,” said Joseph Caliro, the film’s executive producer.


It took the team four years to finish On The Job: The Missing 8, even experiencing challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The award recognizes their efforts in creating a film of such caliber. Matti also won the Best Director award for his masterful work on the film.


Other awards for 'On The Job: The Missing 8' include Best Support Actress for Lotlot de Leon, Best Sound Design for Corinne de San Jose, Best Musical Score for Erwin Romulo, Best Visual Effects for Mothership, Best Editing for Jay Halili, and Best Cinematography for Neil Derrik Bion.


Besides 'On The Job: The Missing 8' 'Big Night' by Jun Robles Lana also won big during the fifth EDDYS. They took home several awards, including Teresa Barrozo for Best Musical Score, Best Screenplay, and Best Actor for Christian Bables.


“The EDDYS is our group’s humble offering to the entertainment industry whose story and histories, kasama na din yung mga history nila Philip Salvador, Alma Moreno, that we in SPEEd continue to write about sa aming newspapers and other platforms,” said Asis.


Asis added that the EDDYS is born of SPEEd’s passion and admiration for Philippine cinema and the immense artistry of those who kept the 102-year tradition alive through good and bad times.
