ENTERTAINMENT HITS – OSCAR VS. FAP by webmaster  |  Posted in Articles  |  on Wed, Mar 9, 2005

The recent Oscar Awards was a success in terms of winners and programme with the limited but interesting and entertaining production numbers. Amidst the simple attire of the celebrities, the night was not lacking in glitters and elegance. As the local counterpart, wait till the FAP Awards gets going. Oscar is male and the FAP’s Statuette (soon to be named) is a female. Eh, mas matindi ang babae, di ba?

Marvin Agustin finally admitted that he is soon to be a daddy of twins. A scion of a prominent political clan from the north, the girl is Tetet Dy, said to be older than Marvin and has a business of her own. What puzzles us is not her age but the idea that she has never been a girlfriend of Marvin. Eh, ano, nagkatinginan lang sila?

During the baptism of Leone (son of Jolo Revilla and Grace Adriano ), Rosanna Roces once again showed her admirable guts. She didn’t like the face of one of the reporters who attended so you can guess what happened. But it turned out that the said reporter was invited by the Revillas so it was embarrassing for Osang’s balae. Eh, masasanay ka rin, Kap!

-*-*-

The nasty videos are at it again. The latest victim is Jennylyn Mercado with a nude video purportedly taken in the bathroom. The naked girl can pass off as Jennylyn especially with the long hair but definitely she’s not it. Eh, sikat ka na talaga, Jennylyn!

We heard that Bobby Yan was eased out of ABS-CBN because her mother met with GMA-7 on the rights of the Rico Yan story (ABS-CBN had already paid for the rights). It was said that the Yan family was wondering when the story is to be aired by ABS-CBN so maybe that’s why they talked with GMA-7. In fairness to Bobby, his CHOWTIME NA at IBC-13 is making waves and reported to be banging with SIS in terms of rating. Eh, sikat ka na rin pala, Bobby!

-*-*-

If you’re wondering where Angelica Jones is, watch CHOWTIME NA from 11 am until noon time at IBC-13. It’s true that you cannot put a good man down, ha? Eh, lalo na kung magaling sa English, di ba?

Darna is soon to fly on primetime TV. Yes, it’s Angel Locsin in the title role who will be fighting with different faces of evils for the villains. What’s this we heard that GMA-7 is so careful in the preparation that they don’t want any leak to the press? Eh, ano, secret?

-*-*-

But in fairness to the think-tank of Darna, the secrecy is already sowing interest in the public’s mind. Until now there’s no official confirmation that Angel Locsin will be essaying the role of Darna. There’s no word about the villains in the story either. Eh, wala tuloy kaming maisulat!

The MMFF is thinking of expanding the list of entries from 8 to 10 this December. This may be a direct effect of the ongoing FAP Scriptwriting contest where the winners will be offered to producers as MMFF entries. But mind you, in the last year’s 8 entries, it seemed that only Enteng Kabisote earned a neat (sic) profit, a couple of entries hit the break even mark and the rest earned a big hole in their pockets. Now it’s going to be 10. Eh, mas marami, mas masaya… ang malulugi!

PELUKANG ITIM is coming soon. Starring the controversial Eddie Gil himself opposite Alma Moreno . In the recent Panagbenga Flower Festival in Baguio, the ever controversial Eddie Gil sort of stole the scene by hiding his co-stars in Pelukang Itim. Another controversial group D’ Bodies , marched in front of Gil’s float to parade their, what else but, not-so-bare bodies. The free fashion show did not sit well with the organizers because people wanted to see flowers, they said. Eh, bulaklak din naman yun, di ba?

QUIZON AVENUE just opened to air traffic. In the tradition of laugh-in skits and sketches, Dolphy ‘s new show promises to be better than his Home Alone series. With him in the show are his sons Eric , Jeffrey and Vandolph together with comedians Pokwang , Kit-kat and Ya Chang . Jenny Hernandez provides the beauty aspect. Eh, pang-rating na naman ba ito?
