Jacklyn Jose, The First Filipina To Won The Best Actress Award At The Cannes Film Festival!


The Filipina actress Jaclyn Jose won the best actress award at the Cannes film festival 2016 for her role in Brillante Mendoza's "Ma' Rosa."

In the said film, Jaclyn Jose plays the role of a mother who was forced to sell drugs just for her and her family to survive. 

"I’m at a loss for words! I am so surprised and moved. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all the Jury members. I thank the director Brillante Mendoza, whose instructions I simply followed," She said in her speech on Monday morning.

She claims that she really didn't expect that she'll won the best actress award and stated that she just wanted to spend time with her daughter and to walk on the red carpet in the Cannes film festival. Little did she know that she'll be winning the best actress award.

She also said in an interview that she made a huge adjustment in this film because she had to adjust from being a rich and spoiled mother to a struggling mom who needs to sacrifice everything for her family.

“I was just sitting there watching the stage how nice it... is and how come in the Philippines we can’t make this, just these simple things and then they call my name. So I got surprised. I’m so happy really, really,” Jaclyn added. “ But of course I’m proud so proud of our film. We just don’t know how the people would react or will like our film but us, we know that we did our best and we know that we have a good film." She said

She also thanked Brilliante Mendoza for the wonderful film. She stated that she's really proud of their film!
