Maricel Soriano, Etsa-Puwera sa Listahan ng ‘Greatest Female Stars’!

NAKAKUHA KAMI NG isang listahan ng “25 Greatest Female Stars” na na-publish sa isang national publication. Ito ay mga local actresses ng Philippine movie industry, mula pa noong 1950s up to the present generation.

Pasok sa list, of course, sina Nora Aunor at Vilma Santos, at may Sharon Cuneta. Pero kung may Sharon, kapansin-pansin ang hindi pagkakasama o pagkakalaglag ng name ni Maricel Soriano, na sinasabing “rival” ng megastar sa pelikula noong 1980s.

Ang nasabing list ay buhat kay Mr. Mario Hernando, isang beteranong film critic at entertainment writer, founding member ng Manunuri ng Pelikulang Pilipino, at isa ring active member ng Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB).

Ang complete names ng “25 Greatest Female Stars” na pasok sa nasabing listahan ni Hernando – “ranked according to seniority and not necessarily preference” – ay sina:

Elsa Oria, Lucita Goyena, Carmen Rosales, Rosa del Rosario, Mila del Sol, Norma Blancaflor, Anita Linda, Delia Razon, Rita Gomez, Lolita Rodriguez, Rosa Rosal, Charito Solis, Nida Blanca, Gloria Romero.

Helen Gamboa, Amalia Fuentes, Susan Roces, Tessie Agana, Nora Aunor, Vilma Santos, Lorna Tolentino, Elizabeth Oropesa, Sharon Cuneta, Aiza Seguerra, Judy Ann Santos.

Take note na sa panlasa at pamantayan ni Hernando, sa younger generation ay pasok ang mga pangalan nina Aiza and Judy Ann – more than Maricel. Huh?!

While it’s true na we just have to respect ang listahang ito base sa personal na opinyon ng nasabing kritiko (mula sa request ng beteranong kolumnistang si Ronald Constantino na maglista nga ito), we don’t totally agree naman na wala ang name ng Diamond Star na si Maricel Soriano.

Kung nalagay sina Juday and Aiza sa list (na wala kaming kontra, dahil deserving sila), eh for us, equally deserving rin ang isang Maricel Soriano to be called a “great female star” as well.

Marya has done several blockbuster movies and award-winning actress din ito mula sa iba’t ibang award-giving bodies sa bansa – maliban sa Gawad Urian, kung saan miyembro si Hernando. Eight times nang nano-nominate si Maricel sa Urian – from 1993 to 2007 – pero laging “Luz Valdez” (lost). Sharon has one Urian trophy for Madrasta.

Kung kasama rin ang popularity sa “criteria”, sumikat din naman ang Maricel during her prime as a versatile movie and TV star – and actress, ‘no! In all fairness naman talaga, huh! Box-office hit Regal movies, more than 10 years existence ng iba’t ibang TV shows niya mula pa noong child actress ito.

Ayon pa sa nasabing article, “Hernando points out that the likes of Gina Alajar, Cherry Pie Picache, Jaclyn Jose, and Gina Pareño are not in his list because while they are great actresses, they’re not great stars.”

I’m sure, ang mga “silent Maricelians” ay may reaction sa listahang ito upang ipagtanggol ang kanilang idolo. Kaya go and react na to us at mell_navarro@yahoo.com.ph.

 

SPEAKING OF AWARDS, all set na ang Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC) sa kanilang 25th PMPC Star Awards for Television 2011. Gaganapin ito sa November 22, Tuesday night sa Newport Performing Arts Theater ng Resorts World Manila (Pasay City).
Parang kailan lang, nagsimula ang PMPC sa pamamahagi ng tropeo para sa mga “the best” in Philippine TV, at kay bilis nga ng panahon at nasa Silver Anniversary na ang said award-giving body, na matatag pa rin kahit na maraming “bagyo” ang pinagdaanan through the years.
Nakakatuwa ring 25th year na rin sa industriya ng comebacking (blocktime) producer ng Star Awards, ang Airtime Marketing Inc., ni Ms. Tessie Celestino-Howard, na ilang taon ding prinodyus ang said awards night, with Direk Al Quinn as her perennial TV director.
More on PMPC Star Awards for Television update in our next columns. Happy Silver Anniversary!

  1. Maricel Soriano must be on the list for 25 Greatest Star in Philippines,,, Everyone know’s that maricel is a very good actress. 

  2. wtf? maricel is not included in the list of the greatest female stars? how come? i’ve known her since Shirley Puruntong days. she’s very popular up to now and one of the best actresses. what’s the criteria of the writer? i am not familiar with delia razon, elsa oria, lucita goyena, norma who are they? lorna t., judy ann, aiza, helen gamboa, elizabeth oropesa definitely fails in comparison to maricel in terms of achievements. if mario hernando is just basing his opinion to star factor and not just the “acting capacity”, then hilda koronel looks every inch a star than elizabeth oropesa. gloria diaz is also a Star. alma moreno is very much popular than lorna t. during their haydays. judy ann is a tv queen. ok, fine but maricel soriano was the original primetime queen and mind you she lorded the primetime viewing for 10 years via her drama special, then extended to kaya ni mister, misis and bida si mister/misis. maricel also internation acting awards for her tv performances. i can’t find the star of aiza. she was cute as a childstar then what? hahaha

  3. HUY, KAYONG MGA WALA NAMAN ALAM SA CTING DYAN MALIBAN SA PAKIKIPAG-SEX AY MAY POINT DYAN SI HERNANDO………..YUN NGA LANG DAPAT NANDYAN SI MARICEL SORIANO AT MARIAN RIVERA THE GREATEST FEMALE PRIMETIME STAR………….KUNG SA UTAK KAHIT PAGSAMAHIN NYO PA YUNG MGA MALALABNAW NYUNG UTAK AY MAS MATALINO PA RIN SA INYO SI MARIO HERNANDO……………CLAUDINE?………NO DICE SIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. @Alexandra Garcia y Pototot – GO ON JOIN YOUR IDOL IN REHAB AND MAKE SURE SHE WILL HAVE HER DOSE OF GERIATRIC MEN ON HER SIDE………….HAHAHAHA………..BAKA NAMAN NAUNA KA NA SA REHAB?……………GREATEST FEMALA STAR?……WAG NA NEH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Mell . hinding hindi ako makakapayag na mawala si Maricel Soriano as one of the Greatest Actress of Phil Cinema.Kumpara naman kay Aiza hello?Mario sana magpakatotoo ka ha , kita mo reaction ng mga tao, yan ang totoo dahil kahit wala silang mga pangalan bilang kritiko ay may malasakit sila sa tunay na alagad ng sining na si Maricel Soriano. HIndi mabilang ang mga pelikulang naiambag ng isang Maricel Soriano mapa comedy man o drama, musical man ! Kung ikukumpara ang isang Sharon Cuneta over Maricel ,hello hamak na magaling ng milya milya ang isang Maricel.. Kahit si Judy Ann di papayag na ilagay pangalan niya over Maricel at tatanggaping maluwag sa dibdib ni Aiza kung wala siya sa listahan dahil alam niyang kahit kailan di siya kinilalalang isa sa pinakamagaling na Actress.Kahiya namang ihanay siya sa league of Greatest Actress like Nora and Vilma hello , Mario me utak ka ba?Bilangin mo nga ang awards ni Maricel at ireview mo ang mga pelikula niya over Aiza and Juday!Magaling si Juday pero di pa niya narating ang husay ng isang Maricel na versatile !Sana isinama mo na lang si Maricel and Snooky over Juday and Aiza!Kaloka ang pagiging luka luka mo Mario Hernando , kahit kailan batik ka sa Urian. Mahilig kang gumawa ng milagro ever!

  6. grabe naman , magpakatotoo nman tayo sa ating mga mata kung ano u nakikita ntin. di ntin matatawan ang galing ni maricel kitang kita nman di ba.

  7. SHEBIE, NOT CLAU-CLAU, SHOULD BE IN A REHAB. Claudine Barretto’s personal life may be problematic (Whose life is perfect?), but that should not take away from the fact that she is an effective and a bankable actress (She has already won a number of acting and box office awards.). SHEBIE, NOT CLAU-CLAU, SHOULD BE IN A REHAB.

  8. Film/TV show critics should learn how to separate an actor’s personal life from his/her acting competence in a film or show. Critics should also be objective in gauging an actor’s popularity to the viewing public. Maricel Soriano and Claudine Barretto should be on the 25 Greatest Female Stars list. Both actresses are excellent in their craft, and majority of Filipinos look forward to seeing them and their performances on the silver screen and on TV. Critics should do their best in sharing their views, if they want to be respected by others. They should be fair and unbiased in their judgment. Maricel Soriano and Claudine Barretto are two of the best – and famous – actresses of the Philippines.

  9. Maricel Soriano and Claudine Barretto should be on the list. They are two of the country’s greatest actresses (and stars). Whoever wrote the list – that is obviously his/her personal opinion. Many of those I know consider both Maricel Soriano and Claudine Barretto outstanding (and popular) actresses.

  10. Ohh my God,  I agree with Emcruz, up to now the diamond star  has no award from Urian because of this Desperate Gay from hell. That is probably the reason why Claudine Barretto also doesn’t have award from Urian. Therefore, Maricel and Claudine are sharing same fate with Urian even though they are very good in acting and versatile in every way still urian is not recognizing their talent. WOW, now I know, such a very good actress like Maricel and Claudine have never won the URIAN because the people behind this URIAN are biased and trash!

  11. Walang credibility yang Mario Hernando na yan..I dont think na rerespetuhin namin siyang critiko dahil hindi siya marunong pumili ng actress na pwede niyang ilagay sa listahan ng 25 great actresses…Binagsak niya ang isang Maricel Soriano na napakahusay na artista at alam ng lahat ang de lkalidad niya when it comes to acting at box office compare sa iba…Di ako naniniwala sa credibilidad mo mario..Never….Unfair ka talaga when it comes to maricel..Di ka bilib sa kanyang talent at popularity ..sabagay kahit itanong mo sa lahat marami talagang magrereact sa sinabi mo when it comes to maricel…U dont deserve our respect Mario…kaya kung binabatikos ka man ngayon dahil sa ginawa mo U deserve it….

  12. oo nga bakit wala si maricel soriano? respect lang talaga sa nag publish ng article na yun. sa younger generation pwede pa si judy ann PERO si aiza? damn! siguro kung may top 30. nasa 30 slot pa si aiza, pwedeng pwede! respect talaga.. hahaha

  13. Ms. lorna Tolentino is a great actress coming from the most prestigious and most trusted film reviewers yan mga CHAKA na iisa lang IP adress na ginagamit halata naman.
    mamatay na kayo sa inggit

  14. TANGNA! ANO ‘TO? LOKOHAN? SI AIZA PASOK, TAPOS SI MARICEL, HINDI??? SINONG MANINIWALA SA’YO GUNGGONG KA MARIO!!!! WALANG PA PRESTIGE PRESTIGE YANG PINAGAGAGAWA MO! TANGA!

  15. dapat inalis muna dyan sa list sina AIZA at JUDY ANN, dahil puro naman mga oldies at mga tumanda na sa showbiz dapat andyan talaga sila GINA PARENO, JACKYN JOSE AT GINA ALAJAR at MARICEL SORIANO AT SNOOKY SERNA… at saka gumawa na lang siya ng mga younger version kagaya niyan sila JUDAY AT CLAUDINE…

  16. hehehe…oo nga nakatira ata ng katol ang mga epal.kaya cno -cno na lang ang pinagla2gay nila  sa” greatest female actress” nila kuno,buti pa ng ang philippine postal office marunong mag recognize kung cno o dapat tawagin greatest actress of philippines showbiz!at nasa top 10 c maria along with vilma,nora,gina p.,hilda,jakilyn,cherie pie,etc….congrats maria.

  17. Pingback: Maricel Soriano Is Not Included In The 25 Greatest Female Stars List | Filipinas In Showbiz

  18. the list is actually laughable. a real STAR is someone who gave lots of contribution to the movie industry and she should be eternal. i mean, makikilala sia hinde lang sa kanyang henerasyon kundi sa mga susunod pang henerasyon. maricel soriano has made lots of contribution to the movie industry and she’s definitely one of the most celebrated actresses. she’s part of our culuture. she is shirley puruntong. she is inday. she is taray queen, she is the Shake Body Body Dancer, she is the Drama Anthology Queen. she is mary. she is Phil. Cinemas Diamond Star. hinde objective yung gumawa ng list and for that he fails.

  19. ——– hmmmp…nagpapansin lang yang mario hernando nayan…kaya di nya sinabi yung ibang mas deserving kase gusto nya mapansin sya ng media…lumang style!! epal :))

  20. The reason why Maricel is not on Mario hernando’s list is the same reason why Maricel has no URIAN AWARD up to now, Wonder what mario Hernando’s grudge against Maricel Soriano is,
    Maricel entertained us and proven herself with more than 100 films, mostly very good films and box office hits, more than a dozen shows that span many generations. YUN ANG TUNAY NA BATAYAN of being a GREAT FEMALE STAR. More than anyone’s self-made list and preferences.

  21. Delia Razon greatest Actress? Aiza? Lorna T.? dontink so! kung meron mn deserving eh un cla: JANICE, JACKILYN, CHERRY PIE, GINA PARENO, MARICEL S., DINA B., CLAUDINE AT AMY AUSTRIA, may depth tlga ang acting…ne0n nlng nmn umaayos un acting ni Lorna T. para lng xang c Rio locsin umarte at Alma sbgay un tlga klevel nya…at d rin greatest actress c Amalia media hype lng ms mgling c Gloria at Nida s knya…

  22. Kung greAtest SINGER PA aagree ako for Aiza na isa xa dun, but as an actress me award nb xa bilang actress at me box office n movie nxa ngdala? Hilong talilong nmn yn writer writeran n yn nka-tira yta ng katol yn eh….HOY BAKLA WAG K NG FEELING credible n critic writer…ilusyun mo lng un!!!!BANGAG K!

  23. tawang-tawa kami sa Mariong ito.. hayaan na lang natin sya sa trip nya.. im sure wala namang maniniwala sa kanya.. di ba butch?

  24. tnx u mr.mell navarro for being fair and nice commends to our diamond star ”ms.maricel soriano”….i’m still wondering and how come….aiza and judy ann is included as one of greatest female actress for all time and maria is not jn the list….compared to aiza,maricel has many blockbuster movies and t.v show aside for being a diamond star of phillppines showbizness,she also a awardwinning actress ever….so WHY????????????MR.MARIO HERNANDO ?????????

  25. Kung sin Nora Aunor nga na kinikilalang one of the greatest actress of the world ay laging binabangit ang name ni Maricel pag tinatanong siya kung sino ang mga magagaling na artista ayon sa kanyang panlasa.

  26. naku, wala toh,. C maricel ang isa sa pinaka magaling na artista. Despite of all the issue sa kanya, dapat ISAMA sya dito noh. in her generation sya ang PINAKASIKAT. sya ang NEXT NORA AUNOR B4…….. helloo……

  27. DAPAT NANDYAN SI MARIA ANG GALING YATA NIYA HA. BUTI NA LANG WALA DYAN YUNG MGA PRETENDERS KATULAD NILA SG PANGO, ANN BLAND, KIM VANG CAY, BALYENANG NGIWI AT SI OPIUM STAR…………..HAHAHAHAHA………..BUTI NA LANG…………GO MARIA!!!!!!!!!!

  28. ibang klase rin c mario hernando na yan,,,halatang may galit kay maria.kung ikukumpara mo naman c maria kay aiza mas marami namang award at box-office na movies c maria.dun palang wala cnabi c aiza pagdating sa mga track record ni maricel as an actress………….

  29. opinion yun ni Mr. Mario pero disagree ako sa ibang stars that were mentioned esp Aiza. I’m not a fan of Maricel but I think she is a great star if not the greatest in her own right.

  30. This is funny. Maricel Soriano is Phil. Cinemas most versatile actress and one of the greatest actresses phil. cinema has ever produced. She has made lot of memorable films and blockbuster movies. Pag binanggit mo ang Rico mambo or Shake Body Body Dancer, ang pumapasok agad sa isip ng tao ay si Maricel. I even saw how she perform on stage way back. She’s really a star in the truest sense of the word. Very popular and a great actress.

  31. I dol ko si Maricel, pero kahit huwag na siya, the likes of Hilda Koronel, Gina Alajar, Charo Santos wala pang nagagwang pelikula sina Aiza at Sharon katulad ng Itim, Insiang at Salome.  I am sorry sa mga tagahanga nila pero walang matinong pelikula na nagawa si Aiza Seguerra.  Kahit na lang ang tulad ng mga nakalipas na mga sexy stars na napakagaling umarte (Sarsi Emmanuel, Barbra Benitez, Ana  Marie Gutierrez, Carmi Martin, Jaclyn Jose at Rio Locsin) and also not to mention, Claudine Barretto, Mylene Dizon at Susan Africa.  I do respect his opinion pero sana ginawa niyang at least 100 or 50 actors (baka me mag react po ha, actors ang tawag sa lahat ng artista sa Hollywood ke male or female)  para fair sa lahat ng artist.  By the way, kahit nuon pa man, hindi nman maganda gumawa ng film review si Mario.  Lagi na lang base sa taste nya hindi sa delivery at craftmanship ng movie, director at ng actors.
