The nominees list of the the 67th Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences (FAMAS) Awards was just released, and we couldn’t be prouder of our fave celebs.

We loved seeing some the 2018 tearjerkers, epic dramas, and indie faves. We think the list has been well curated, and the nominees deserve the citation for their exceptional performances and prod. Leading the list with multiple nominations are films like Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral, Ang Dalawang Mrs Reyes, Never Not Love You, and Never Tear Us Apart a.k.a. Fisting, among others.

The awards night will be held this coming April 28 at the Meralco Theater. So, who do you think will make the cut? We’re keeping tabs of our faves and have our best bets, that’s for sure. Who are yours?

Congratulations to all the nominees! For us, you’re all already winners.
