The First Annual Brun Film Awards 2013: Nominees and Recipients (Critics' Section)

Image taken from our Wix site
Updated: March 28, 2014 (6:00 P.M.) Recipients announced

Early January 2014, Brun Philippines was invited to participate for the first time in Pinoy Rebyu’s 2013 Movie Poll.  Our official selections were voted by our resident and guest critics as well as selected readers.  Since many critics consider 2013 as a resurgent year in Philippine cinema, we have decided to give our very own awards. Yes, another award-giving body! God help us. Insert sardonic grin here. Don fret, we aim to be the most “ironic self-aware” award-giving body in the country.


Brun Philippines was launched last year and so we think it is only appropriate that we celebrate our first anniversary by honoring the best in Filipino films. Unlike our selections in Pinoy Rebyu, we decided to follow the traditional path and stick with Best Performances by Female and Male Actors, especially since there were so many great performances last year. It would limit our choices if we just settle for Best Lead and Supporting Performances. Who knows, perhaps next year, the picking will be slim so might as well take advantage of last year’s abundant harvest.


Here are the nominees for our first Brun Film Awards. For now, we will just have seven categories. Ten nominees for Best Film and five for the other categories. Our choices for Best Director and Best Screenplay are already announced but we will announce the recipients for the other categories on March 28, 2014. (Update: Originally, the announcement of the recipients was on February 28, but because of the positive feedback from our readers, we decided to move the announcement on March 28 to coincide with the closing date of our Readers' Choice Awards.

Note: The nominees are slightly different from the ones we submitted for Pinoy Rebyu because we divided the performance categories into four instead of two. 



Nominees are arranged alphabetically

BEST FILMS ("The Triad")
Brun chooses a maximum of three winning best films instead of the traditional single winner because a single winner is very limiting. In addition, time is the true test of a good film and we believe that the following three films have longevity. The award is credited to the film producer(s) and director(s).

"To paraphrase President Aquino, if a person cannot response properly to the issue, he resorts to name calling." It is important that we become responsible for the words that we say online. Freedom of speech also means being matured and responsible. We erased the name of the reader to protect his privacy. Unlike him, we respect his rights but we just want to make a point by focusing on the message and not the messenger.

Brun Philippines encourages readers to focus solely on the issues when commenting or criticizing. We do not allow foul language and personal attacks on any individuals. Freedom of speech also includes responsibility. We want to weed out the buffoons from the critical and freethinkers. Thanks so much.

Hinihikayat ng Brun Philippines ang mga mambabasa na tumutok lamang sa mga isyung pinag-uusapan sa pagkomento o pagpuna. Hindi namin pinapayagan ang napakaruming wika at personal na pag-atake sa anumang indibidwal. Kaakibat din ng kalayaan sa pananalita ang responsibilidad. Gusto naming alisin ang mga luko-luko mula sa kritikal at malayang mag-iisip. Maraming salamat po.
