Kathryn’s cinematic comeback may be filed under dark comedy, but her new chapter is looking bright with these back-to-back recognitions

Last night, Kathryn Bernardo received her ninth recognition from the Box Office Entertainment Awards. Wearing a black and white ensemble from Mark Bumgarner, the actress received her “Box Office Queen” title this year for her 2023 film, A Very Good Girl.

Twice the actress achievement

This achievement comes after the announcement of her nominations for the revered award-giving bodies in Philippine cinema—the FAMAS and Gawad Urian. This is Kathryn’s sixth nomination from the former, with a number of her movies bagging nominations as well: Pagpag, She’s Dating the Gangster, Crazy Beautiful You, Barcelona: A Love Untold; and Hello, Love, Goodbye. The 2019 film, where she co-starred with Kapuso actor Alden Richards, gave her her first Gawad Urian nomination.

Considered as Kathryn’s boldest movie to date, A Very Good Girl is another validation of her bankability as an actress. On its opening day, the movie earned PHP 10 million. After national and international premieres, the sales hit more than PHP 100 million.

Before the premiere of Star Cinema’s Rewind in 2023, Hello, Love, Goodbye held the highest grossing film title from 2019 to 2022, with PHP 880 million box office figures. Coming third to date is another film of Kathryn Bernardo, The Hows of Us, earning PHP 810 million.

A meaningful mark in the industry

What truly makes a performance worthy of the Best Actress title? To some, they measure it by bankability. How effective are they in bringing people into cinemas and making them watch the films? How many individuals or organizations are willing to support and sponsor the production of a movie? How much will this particular film earn should this star top bill the project?

Meanwhile, others regard the actual accolades as the confirmation of the star’s skill. With a number of jurors seeing the skill and artistry of the actor, it is a form of validation for them. What quantifies the celebrity’s artistry on this side? The awards.

When one looks at Kathryn Bernardo’s journey as an actress, it is a testament that she is capable of winning the hearts of the jury and encouraging her fans and audience to bring back the power of cinema. This double achievement does not come often and not for many. While we are all holding our breath should she win her first Gawad Urian and FAMAS, her star effect is clear—Kathryn is a force to be reckoned with, and her talent plays a big part in her twenty-year-old career.

Margot Robbie’s husband, Tom Ackerley, has revealed a surprising truth about their relationship

While some couples who work together like to separate their home and office life, that couldn’t be further from the truth for Margot Robbie and Tom Ackerley.

In a new interview with The Sunday Times, the couple have shared that between their careers and their marriage, they spend “24 hours a day” together.

Ackerley described their relationship as “seamless,” saying, “we don’t have a toggle on, toggle off. It’s all become one thing.”

The film producer went on to describe his near perfect relationship with his wife, saying the only arguments they have revolve around their England vs. Australia rivalry.

They often tussle over which country’s chocolate treats are better – Tim Tams or Penguins – with Ackerley adding he wishes there were “more of a sporting rivalry” between the two nations.

The Aussie actress first met her British beau in 2013 on the set of her 2014 film Suite Française where he was working as third AD.

They began dating in 2014 when they moved in together with a few other friends, including Sophia Kerr who cofounded their production company LuckyChap.

”We kept it a secret. Because we weren’t really taking it seriously. ‘Oh, whatever, we’re just mates, we’re just mates.’ And then… everyone found out,” Robbie told The Guardian in 2018, adding that “s— hit the fan” when their roommates found out.

“Everyone was, like, ‘No! This is going to ruin our group!’ And then it didn’t. It was fine.”

Robbie told Vogue in 2016 that she was “always in love” with Ackerley, but never thought the feelings were reciprocated.

“I thought, oh, he would never love me back. Don’t make it weird, Margot. Don’t be stupid and tell him that you like him,” she shared.

“And then it happened, and I was like, of course we’re together. This makes so much sense, the way nothing has ever made sense before.”

The couple were married on the Gold Coast in 2016.
