Vince Tañada, the director of FAMAS, posted this amid the Eva Darren snubbing incident

VINCE TAÑADA – The director of the Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences Awards had a cryptic post at the height of the snubbing issue involving veteran actress Eva Darren.

Eva is a veteran actress with a career spanning from 1963 to the present. She first appeared in movies in the early 1960s and gained recognition by winning the FAMAS Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “Ang Pulubi” (1969).

In 1998, she was nominated for the Gawad Urian Best Supporting Actress for her performance in “Ligaya Ang Itawag Mo Sa Akin” (1997). She is well-remembered for her role as the adoptive mother of Kristine Hermosa in the hit TV series “Pangako Sa ‘Yo” (2000) and as a fortuneteller in “Sineserye Presents: Patayin Sa Sindak si Barbara” (2008).

Eva made headlines after being involved in a controversy at the 72nd FAMAS Awards when she was replaced last minute as a presenter because the ushers allegedly couldn’t locate her. FAMAS later apologized for the oversight. Despite the incident, Darren and her family accepted the apology, hoping for better organization in future events.

At the height of the snubbing issue, Vince Tañada, the director of FAMAS, who also served as one of the presenters at the ceremony held at the Manila Hotel on Sunday, May 26, left a cryptic post on social media. The filmmaker is known for his work in the films “Katips” and “Ako Si Ninoy.”

“Haters (are) gonna hate. Regardless of what you do. So just move on and live your life to the fullest,” Tañada made the statement in a Facebook Story that has since been removed, shared on Monday, May 27. Although he deleted his post, numerous internet users captured screenshots of it.
