Sonata receives 4 Gawad Urian Nominations

Yesterday, the Gawad Urian announced their list of nominations and our film, Sonata, received four nominations!

Nominated are Cherie Gil for Best Actress, Peque Gallaga & Lore Reyes for Best Director, Emerzon Tecson for Best Music, and Junjun Montelibano for Best Production Design.

I’m extremely excited and happy that, aside from Best Actress and Best Director, that the Urian has given nominations for the production design and music. There were so many good films last year and for them to have acknowledged the music and the production design, aside from Tita Cherie’s magnificent performance and the careful direction of my Dad and Tito Lore.

I felt that the production design and music of Sonata really is intrinsic to the film and is so integral to the story. I feel that the Sound Design should have been nominated as well; but I’m just happy that we got the four nominations, nonetheless.

Like I said, there are so many good films that came out last year, it’s nice to know that we were still able to stand out from such a good crop of Filipino movies.
