The award-giving body likewise gave Ulan three more major awards:  as Best Feature Film, Best Original Screenplay, Best Sound, Best Cinematography, and Best Direction (Fiction) for Irene Villamayor. 

Meanwhile, Tirso Cruz III was hailed the best supporting actor for his powerful performance in the TV series The General’s Daughter; while Dimples Romana was acknowledged as best supporting actress for her role in the afternoon TV series Kadenang Ginto.
