Pangilinan, Robredo, Guanzon Fail To Make It To This Year’s National Artist Awards.

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Fans and followers of defeated candidates Kiko Pangilinan and Leni Robredo, and ex-Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon are disappointed that none of them made it to the cut of this year’s National Artist Awards.

The National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) announced on Friday this year’s awardees led by Superstar Nora Aunor who finally bagged the great honor after being snubbed several times by the previous occupant of Malacañang.

Pangilinan, Robredo and Guanzon were nominated for their extraordinary acting and antics during the campaign for the 2022 Philippine national elections.

Congratulations, Ms. Nora Aunor! Better luck next time to the pink trio.
