Box-Office King and Queen were the highest standing titles in the category of Box-Office Entertainment Award of Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation that an actor/actress could be receiving, but for this year, they added another title position which is the Phenomenal Box-Office Star.
The newly added title position was awarded to Vice Ganda because of his movie “Praybeyt Benjamin”, and was released in cinemas last 2011, and was recorded to be and known to be the highest-grossing film in the Philippines.
The fulfillment that Vice Ganda is experiencing now is unexplainable and undeniable especially when he finally received the award last April 29, 2012 (Sunday).
Aside from acquiring the Phenomenal Box-Office Star award, he was also given the Male Novelty Performer of the Year because of the achievement he obtained in his latest concert, Vice Ganda Todong Sample which was held in Araneta Coliseum.
“Thank you, thank you so much!” Vice said joyfully before the awarding ceremony starts.
“Yung Male Novelty Performer of the Year and Phenomenal Box-Office Star, todo talaga—yung pinakamataas na concert, yung pinakamataas ng movie, ibinigay sa akin kaya bongga.
“Maraming-maraming salamat sa Guillermo para sa dalawang awards na ibinigay nila sa akin.
“Rest assured na pagpupursigihan ko pa lalo ang trabaho ko para hindi naman ito ang una’t huling pagkakataon na aakyat ako sa entabaldong yun.” Vice said.
REAPING WHAT YOU SOW. According to Vice, the trophies he got was the exchange for all his hardships, sacrifices and the controversies that was thrown to him.
“Siyempre kasi, sa dinami-dami ng mga araw na nagpuyat ka, sa dami ng mga intriga na hinaharap mo, ito na yung pabuya.
“Ang sakripisyo laging may magandang kapalit.
“Iba si Lord, iba Siyang magpabuya talaga. Alam Niya na ‘pag maganda ang intensiyon mo, maganda rin ang kapalit.
“Sa bawat intriga, iniiisip ko na lang na may kapalit na naman itong maganda.
“Ganun kasi ang nangyayari, ‘pag binato ka nang binato, iiyak ka ng kaunti. Pero paggising mo kinabukasan, maganda na yung kapalit kaya okay na rin. Naglaho lahat ng inis.
“Heto… heto ang dahilan para lalo akong magpurisge.” He added.
