Resiklo is MMFF 2007 Best Picture?

There's something about Metro Manila Film Festival that it couldn't conclude without controversy and this year is no exception. Last year, Star Cinema's Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo lost the Best Picture award because of the new rule that the topgrossing film will be awarded the highest award. Enteng Kabisote won Best Picture because at the time of the awards night, it was still the topgrossing film. But days after the awards night, Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo was able to overtook Enteng to become last year's overall topgrosser. This year, the boxoffice status of the movie is still a requirement for the Best Picture award. KKK's sequel Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo is the clear topgrosser and yet, it was snubbed again for the said award. The Best Picture went to Bong Revilla's "Resiklo".
