According to Julie Anne, she didn’t expect to win though she was informed that she was one of the nominees, so she was told to attend. During that time she just arrived from SM Marilao and she wasn’t prepared to be in the awards night, otherwise she would be surprised of Daniel’s presence in the event.
The New Female Recording Artist of the Year Julie Anne San Jose posted on her Twitter saying, “it’s really an honor and it’s a great feeling that I had won”.
Observers speculated that there seems really a rivalry between Julie Anne and Bea Binene with the same category but the award was won by Julie Anne.

Another action film will be seen by movie viewers the Kung Fu actor Jackie Chan will whirlwind again all over the world.
Hong Kong martial arts film star is promoting his 2012 Chinese action film “Chinese Zodiac” will be released in U.S, cinemas on Friday. He is expected to perform and he is famous in high flying and physically punishing stunts.
Baby, you’re getting old. Jackie starts to enter his twilight years and he’s going to be 60. He’s been saying he’ll retire soon. He said after 50 years of flips, kicks and punches it gets hurt and really tiring not like it used to be.
Through the years, nothing is impossible if doing action film could be tried into drama. “I really hope someday in Hollywood, some producer or director will hire me only to do drama, I would really appreciate it”, Jackie said. Some critics believed it is not going to happen because the audience is not used to see Jackie Chan doing drama.
According to Jackie Chan, he sees so many action stars all those years come and go unlike in drama and true actors like Robert de Niro, Dustin Hoffman they live forever in the eyes of the viewers.
It’s only on the mindset of the people that action star should be an action star, so as a drama star should be a drama star, either a comedy star should be a comedy star. But why in other countries, these showbiz artists are well accepted by the viewers if they do action/drama/comedy roles?
Jackie Chan could be given a chance to prove his versatility as an actor and a very good producer/film director could be of help.
