Gawad Urian Lists the 10 Best Pinoy Films of the Decade

The Manunuri ng Pelikulang Pilipino's (MPP) Ten Best Pinoy Films of the Decade Vs. The Film Academy of the Philippines' (FAP) Selections for the Oscar Awards.

In alphabetical order, here is the 10 Best Pinoy Films of the first ten years of the current millenium according to MPP:

1. Babae Sa Breakwater (2003)
2. Batang Westside (2001)
3. Ebolusyon ng Isang Pamilyang Pilipino (2004)
4. Kinatay (2009)
5. Kubrador (2006)
6. Lola (2009)
7. Magnifico (2003)
8. Ang Pagdadalaga Ni Maximo Oliveros (2005)
9. Serbis (2008)
10. Tuhog (2000)

From the list above, only the indie film “Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros” became the official entry of the Philippines to the Annual Academy Awards or the Oscars. It was also that year (2006) that the Philippines almost had its first Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film because “Maximo” bagged the Best Film nomination from the Independent Spirit Awards. Most films nominated in the annual Spirit Awards, also known as the Oscars for Independent Films, also figure well in the Oscars.

Here is the list of Philippines’ official entry to the Oscars from year 2000 to 2009 (CLICK HERE FOR RELATED ARTICLE):

* 2000 Anak (73rd Academy Awards)
* 2001 Gatas: Sa Dibdib ng Kaaway (74th Academy Awards)
* 2002 Mga Munting Tinig (75th Academy Awards)
* 2003 Dekada ’70 (76th Academy Awards)
* 2004 Crying Ladies (77th Academy Awards)
* 2005 No submission
* 2006 Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros (79th Academy Awards)
* 2007 Donsol (80th Academy Awards)
* 2008 Ploning (81st Academy Awards)
* 2009: Ded na si Lolo (82nd Academy Awards)

Do you think the Philippines picked the wrong entries to the Oscars from 2000 to 2009 except for 2006?

This year alone, some critics questioned the selection of the Film Academy of the Philippines for “Noy” as our official entry to the 83rd Academy Awards whereas a lot of other local films shown in the year 2010 have won numerous awards abroad.

Is it safe to assume that we are not picking the best pinoy films as the country’s official entry to the Oscars? I, for one, believed the film “Magnifico” should have been our official entry to the Oscars last 2003.

What do you think?

    watever!!!!

    watch nyu na lng movie ni angel locsin na IN THE NAME OF LOVE!!!!

    happy bday ms angel!!!!!!!

  5. may criteria kasi ! // April 21, 2011 at 11:59 am //

    una dapat maipalabas sa mga sinehan at graded A ng CEB ! pero i agree sa list ng GAWAD URIAN …. tsaka isa pa sa OSCARS ngayon dominated na ng INDIES noh … dapat indies na rin ilaban natin na nakakakuha ng awards abroad … dagdag ingay kasi yun ……

  6. themes of our movies eh too regional, they should have a universal effect also. D movie ded na si lolo, would not really make it. humor is very pinoy, tayo lang nkakaappreciate. tayo lang natatawa dun. walang effect to other people. d crying ladies is good. actually when mark meily was interviewed for ploning naman, he mentioned that crying ladies reached d top 15 cut. unfortunately 5 lang kinukuha ng oscars. if we are to look at the foreign lang film na nagiging contenders have universal themes like life is beautiful (italy) that talks about the sacrifice of a father for his son. if you have judges from like 20 different countries, they can all relate to it.

  7. jcinjeddah.. // April 21, 2011 at 2:24 am //

    my top 5 movies from 2000 are (1) magnifico (2) Dubai (3) Mila (4) Fengsui (5) kasal kasali kasalo or tanging Ina.

  8. In all fairness mga kapams ung PLONING ni Judy Ann ang pelikula na binaboy ng EBS ZBN ha. Kahit Kapamilya si Judy Ann Tinapatan nila ang Ploning ng Star Cinema Movie para maging flop ito // April 21, 2011 at 12:12 am //

    Ganyan magmahal ang Kapamilya. haha

  9. Ok ka lang ba. Hindi ka ba lasing. Ang article is about top 10 movies from 2000-2010. Waley naman ang dekaa 70 at anak sa list

  10. Bakit naman maiingit eh wala nga. Madam Auring Kaba nalalaman mo ang nararamdaman ng ibang tao.

  11. parang nabunotan ng tinik si no. 8 na walang star cinema sa list dahil kung nagkataon, baka atakehen siya sa inggit at kabitteran. di niya matanggap na ang kanguso station nya ay waley sa paggawa ng movie. pak!

  12. dukot or sigwa…its about the filipino struggle and it is very realistic and it really happens…pinoy na man tayo di ba dapat alam natin kung ano ang bayan natin!…o nag bulag bulagan na naman tayo?…i don’t think that you guys wants to impress people abroad for tourism sake or investment? duh! when in fact they know the reality and they will appreciate if we will present them the reality that they have known than to false story!..

    sabi nila para manalo ka raw sa oscars dapat gumagastos k ng malaki sa isang pelikula para sa viewing ng mga judges… at iba pang promotion…. not like sa ibang bansa suppport nila mga film na nakakasali sa oscars… dito nglilimos ng budget….

  21. Ok walang STAR CINEMA MOVIE. // April 20, 2011 at 9:03 pm //

    OK

  22. Serbis lang po ang napanood ko sa mga nasa lists…at sa totoo lang, overrated ang mga indie films? kasi hindi naman ako satisfied sa mga yun? yung serbis napanood ko lang sa dvd hindi sa sinehan kasi sayang ang pera kung doon ako manonood…i think, you are just encouraging indie film makers…kaya puro sila ang nasa lists!

  23. HINDI LAHAT NG JUDGMENT NG MGA HURADO AY EKSELENTE // April 20, 2011 at 6:46 pm //

    Mas makakabuti kung tinatanong ang taumbayan sa kung ano ang panlasa nila sa isang dekalibreng pelikula, madalas kasi personal na interes lang ang pinagbabasehan ng mga huradong walang katanggap-tanggap na panlasa, ung Noy hindi ko talaga bet un, wala man lang dun na superb acting na eksena….

    Mga hurado na hindi nag-aanalisa nang mabuti, basta na lang makapili…kahit ako ordinaryong manonood, hindi pasok sa aking panlasa un..

    opinyon ko lang naman un

  24. franz1227 // April 20, 2011 at 6:38 pm //

    gusto ko tuloy panuorin mga yan. pagdadalaga ni maximo oliveros at magnifico lang npanuod ko. Magnifico is the best local movie for me..nakailang iyak ako dun..

  28. CRITIQUE // April 20, 2011 at 4:01 pm //

    I personally believe that choosing Best Picture and a film as an Oscar entry requires different criteria. We should know that to make good publicity, it will need a lot of capitalization. Unfortunately, the government does not help the film industry that much compared to the focus given by Imelda to the industry during her husband’s regime. Going back, I believe that Noy was chosen not because that they believe that it is the greatest film of its time but because of the hopes of it might eventually garner attention because we knew that Noynoy is the son of the famous Cory and Ninoy Aquino. Also a big factor considered is that one of its producers/distributors is Star Cinema. With that being stated, Star Cinema could contribute a lot in terms of financing the film for international screenings.

    I believe that a film about CORY AQUINO will be great. I hope that it will not be an indie film though because it will be so much better if the best portrayal of EDSA I will be shown. I think that she is really famous and also a woman of character. She represents Filipinos really well. I believe that the best depiction of her life through an outstanding film will be good. Just like the successes of biopics of Gandhi and Mozart.
