The Philippine Movie Press Club or PMPC, the group that organizes the annual Star Awards for TV, Movies and Music, has figured in several controversies in the past saying that they favor some stars who give gifts to the organization in cash or in kind. This year is no exemption as another controversy erupted right after the 28th Star Awards for TV was held last Sunday.
Apparently, blogger Fashion Pulis posted before the awards night a Twitter post by a certain @JunGel143 saying that Kim Chiu won the bidding and will eventually beat 5 notable actresses namely Angel Locsin (The Legal Wife), Bea Alonzo (Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon), Lovi Poe (Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real), Maricel Soriano (Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real) and Maja Salvador (The Legal Wife) for the Best Drama Actress award.
Sunday night came and true enough, Kim Chiu won the highly-coveted trophy for her performance in the primetime series “Ikaw Lamang.”
Because of this, the Kapamilya drama Princess received flak from netizens accusing her of buying the Best Actress trophy from PMPC. Kim replied to the accusations with a simple tweet:

Kim also posted on Instagram (@chinitaprincess) the following:
“sa lahat ng nagdoubt kung bakit ako yung nanalo, gagawin ko po kayong dagdag inspirasyon ko para pagbutihin ko pa ang trabaho ko.. maraming salamat sa inyo!!!! #bestnightever #thankful.”
Do you think Kim Chiu deserved the Best Drama Actress trophy from Star Awards?
