On December 28, Angelica Panganiban was hailed as Best Actress during the 65th FAMAS Awards for her unparalleled performance in the movie “The Unmarried Wife”.
At that time, Angelica who was having a vacation in Japan with her friends was unable to personally accept her trophy as Best Actress. With her on the trip were Agot Isidro, Cherry Pie Picache, and Direk Andoy Ranay.
She was also reunited with FAMAS Best Actor, Daniel Padilla and his buddies, Marco Gumabao and Patrick Sugui.
On December 29, Angelica thanked her fans and supporters on Instagram. She wrote: “Maraming salamat FAMAS. thank you Star Cinema! Maraming maraming salamat sa tiwala at paniniwala sa akin.”
Angelica also shared her award to those people who had been hurt but was able to rise again.
“Para ‘to sa lahat ng nasaktan, pero kinayang bumangon at lumaban. happy new year indeed. #theunmarriedwife.”
Among Angelica’s friends, Angel Locsin and Luis Manzano congratulated her on the comments section of her IG post.
The movie had been shown in cinemas last 2016. She was with Dingdong Dantes who played her husband as”Geoff” and Paulo Avelino as “Bryan”.
“The Unmarried Wife” is a story about a wife and the decisions she has to make after she finds out that her husband is having an illicit love affair and has been doing it repeatedly. Slowly, her marriage with the husband is slowly falling apart until she meets another man who helps her become happy and forget the pain which her cheating husband had caused her. Her strength is then being tested if she can forgive him or is willing to move on and accept the love of another man.
