Why can't Star Cinema or Regal Films produce great movies for Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo? She has always proven in every project she has that she can pull off with flying colors the roles given to her.
In the episode tonight of Maalaala Mo Kaya with hashtag #MMKMothersQuest, Judy Ann nailed it! Every scene was full of emotion. She is a real actress.
We bet our cards on this episode that this will be tonight's highest rater both in AGB Nielsen and Kantar. She deserves the win!
So why aren't we seeing movies with Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo as lead star? Because the market is focused on consuming romantic movies that would make them smile both in their teeth and in their hearts. Gone are the days of great movies that go beyond just romance. The days of Jose Rizal, Tanging Yaman, Bagong Buwan, Anak, Magkapatid and all others. Gone are their days.
But why can't movie producers bring that age back? Precious actors like Judy Ann become a waste because they're not given a material that would showcase their acting prowess. Indie film industry gives that but come on, Mrs. Santos-Agoncillo deserves a mainstream audience.
