Aliw Awards Honors the Best in Performing Arts, Entertainment


The Aliw Awards, headed by Ms. Charo G. Yu, once more gave honor and recognition to the best in the performing arts and popular entertainment. The awarding rites were held at the Fiesta Pavilion of The Manila Hotel.

The program was as usual lenghty and wearisome (it ended at past 2 p.m.!) but everybody, especially the awardees, went home happy.

Special awards of distinction and Lifetime Achievement Awards were also given to outstanding personalities whove distinguished themselves in the arts and entertainment. They are former First Lady Imelda Romualdez Marcos, German Moreno, Victor Wood, Romy Posadas, the Mabuhay Singers, George Canseco (posthumous) and Shirley Halili Cruz.

Mrs. Marcos passion and achievements in the arts when she was first lady and Metro Manila governor is legendary. Her contribution to the cultural development of the country was immense, whether some like it or not. She elevated the state of the arts in the country and enabled the Filipinos to watch foreign artists performances at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, one of her most controversial projects but which will defintely be her lasting legacy to the Filipino people. Mrs. Marcos also put up the National Arts Center for talented young Filipinos.

Like Mrs. Marcos, German Moreno needs no introduction when it comes to his contribution to popular entertainment in the country. He is himself an institution in showbusiness, the "Master Showman" himself who has helped countless new talents to get the opportunity to gain fame and fortune through showbiz (through his shows "Thats Entertainment" and "Master Showman").

Shirley Halili Cruz, is likewise a great achiever but in the field of dance. A ballet expert, she is a woman known for her integrity, dedication and excellence in her craft.

Shirley graduated valedictorian and summa cum laude from high school and college, is multiawarded and talented but she has remained simple and humble. She is a respected ballet director who consistently brings honor and pride to the country through the many awards that her dancers continue to win in prestigous international dance competitions.

Shirley founded the Quezon City Ballet (QCB) and the Halili Cruz School of Ballet (HCSB), awarded as "The Most Outstanding Ballet School in Asia." She hones talents and trains students to become excellent dancers and outstanding artists.

Her school is always the winner of first prizes and gold trophies in the different dance categories at the Asia Pacific Dance Competition. Her dancers also get very high grades in various international ballet competitions.

Shirleys school and dancers have successfully represented the country in international festivals and competitions. They have gone around the world and they have always been praised and admired for their great talent, outstanding performance and discipline.

By the way, at the Aliw Awards Night (hosted by Verni Varga and Christian Bautista), ABS-CBN talents shone and bagged numerous trophies. Among them were Gary Valenciano, who was acclaimed "Entertainer of the Year" and "Best Male Concert Performer in a Major Venue and his counterpart, Lea Salonga, who was last years "Entertainer of the Year," Gerard Salonga, Best Musical Director; Bobby Garcia, Best Stage Director; Anime, Best Modern Dance Group; Anna Fegi, Best Female Performer in Hotel, Lounges and Bars; Aaron Agassi, Best New Male Artist; Boy Abunda, Best Male Emcee, John Lapus, Best Male Stand-Up Comedy Act, opposite Candy Pangilinan, Ricky Davao, Best Performance by an Actor in a Non-Musical Play, and Joel Lamangan, Best Director for Theater. …
