Charo’s acting in “Ang Babaeng Humayo” is Oscar worthy

Charo Santos performance in Lav Diaz’ masterpiece “Ang Babaeng Humayo” (“The Woman who Left”) should have gotten an Oscar nomination, according to US film critic Glenn Heath Jr. of San Diego City Beat.

 

In his piece titled “The best film performances snubbed by Oscar” published online, Glenn enlisted names of superb actors and actresses as a way to “pay respect to the unsung roles the Academy failed to recognize” this year.

 

“Rage, empathy, heartache, joy: This performance has it all,” wrote Glenn.

 

“Director Lav Diaz convinced one of Filipino cinema’s titanic figures to return to the big screen for this brilliant, nearly four-hour character study about a scorned woman, released from prison after serving 30 years, who traverses the countryside looking for her missing son,” he added.

 

Glenn also noted Lav’s famed long takes that helped establish deeper emotional stakes in the film “with the camera pinned to Renata’s facial expressions as they change slowly over time.”

 

Other names included in the list were Salma Hayek for “Beatriz at Dinner,” Nahuel Perez Biscayart for “BPM,” Tiffany Haddish for “Girls Trip,” Kris Avedisian for “Donald Cried,” Harris Dickinson for “Beach Rats,” Ahn Seo-hyun for “Okja,” Robert Pattinson for “Good Time,” and Millicent Simmonds for “Wonderstruck.”

 

“Ang Babaeng Humayo” is Charo’s movie comeback after serving as president of ABS-CBN. The film brought honor to the country as the first Filipino film to win the Golden Lion or the top prize in the annual Venice Film Festival in Italy.

 

Earlier this week, Charo’s co-star John Lloyd Cruz also received a best supporting actor nomination also for “Ang Babaeng Humayo” at the 15th International Cinephile Society Awards. He is competing against Willem Dafoe (“The Florida Project”), Armie Hammer (“Call Me by your Name”), Barry Keoghan (“The Killing of a Sacred Deer”), Michael Stuhlbarg (“Call Me by Your Name”) and Arnold Valois (“BPM”).

 

“Ang Babaeng Humayo” was produced by ABS-CBN’s Cinema One Originals and Sine Olivia.

 

US film critic, nagbigay pugay sa mga inisnab sa Academy Awards

CHARO, PANG-OSCARS ANG HUSAY SA “ANG BABAENG HUMAYO”

 

 

Dapat isa si Charo Santos sa mga nominado sa Oscar Awards para sa kanyang ipinamalas na galing sa pag-arte sa pelikulalng “Ang Babaeng Humayo” (“The Woman who Left”), sabi ng US film critic na si Glenn Heath Jr. ng San Diego City Beat.

 

Sa kanyang istorya online na pinamagatang “the best film performances snubbed by Oscar,” nilista ni Glenn ang mahuhusay na mga aktor at aktres, kabilang si Charo, para bigyang pugay ang mag ito lalo pa’t hindi sila napabilang sa kinilala ng Academy ngayong taon.

 

Nilarawan ni Glenn ang performance ni Charo na kumpleto dahil sa dami ng pinagdaanang emosyon ng kanyang karakter na si Horacia.

 

Nakumbinse umano ng direktor na si Lav Diaz ang isa sa matatawag na bigatin sa industriya ng pelikulang Pilipino para bumida sa halos apat na oras na kwento ng isang babaeng lumaya mula sa pagkakakulong ng 30 taon.

 

Bukod kay Charo, kasama rin sa listahan sina Salma Hayek para sa “Beatriz at Dinner,” Nahuel Perez Biscayart para sa “BPM,” Tiffany Haddish para sa “Girls Trip,” Kris Avedisian para sa “Donald Cried,” Harris Dickinson para sa “Beach Rats,” Ahn Seo-hyun para sa “Okja,” Robert Pattinson para sa “Good Time,” at Millicent Simmonds para sa “Wonderstruck.”

 

Ang pelikulang “Ang Babaeng Humayo” ay comeback movie ni Charo matapos itong maglingkod bilang presidente ng ABS-CBN. Nagdala ito ng karangalan sa bansa bilang pinakaunang Filipino film na nag-uwi ng Golden Lion award sa taunang Venice Film Festival sa Italy.

 

Kamakailan ay inanunsyo din na ang co-star ni Charo sa pelikula na si John Lloyd Cruz ay nominado naman para sa best supporting actor sa 15th International Cinephile Society Awards. Makakalaban ni John Lloyd sina Willem Dafoe (“The Florida Project”), Armie Hammer (“Call Me by your Name”), Barry Keoghan (“The Killing of a Sacred Deer”), Michael Stuhlbarg (“Call Me by Your Name”) at Arnold Valois (“BPM”).

 

“Ang Babaeng Humayo” ay prinoduce ng Cinema One Originals ng ABS-CBN at ng Sine Olivia.
