40th Box Office Entertainment Awards – 2009 Winners

John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo are indeed the Box Office King and Queen of the year!

The people from the Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Awards picked Sarah Geronimo as this year’s Box Office Queen for her launching movie last year A Very Special Love although the MMFF 2008 movie Ang Tanging Ina N’yong Lahat starring Ai Ai delas Alas outgrossed the first John Lloyd-Sarah movie.

The dilemma with the Ai Ai movie is that its screening period is from December 25, 2008 until the whole month of January 2009. It’s total gross of P197 million will be counted in the year 2009 so the official top-grosser of 2008 is still A Very Special Love.

Ai Ai delas Alas would have been running for Box Office queen title next year but Sarah Geronimo’s You Changed My Life movie has already outgrossed her film. So it’s most likely that next year’s box office queen is still Sarah Geronimo unless another movie that will be shown this year outgrosses You Changed My Life.

For John Lloyd Cruz, however, it will be his 2nd consecutive year to become Box Office King.
