In an issued official statement, the PMPC denied Sucaldito’s accusations. Below is the official statement of PMPC.

The Philippine Movie Press Club, Inc. (PMPC) is saddened by the unfortunate turn of events at the recently-concluded 30th PMPC Star Awards for Movies.

Immediately after the awards ceremonies, a malicious allegation circulated in social media questioning the veracity of our Best Actor winner.

We strongly refute the said allegation. The voting members gave their utmost trust and confidence to the winners in their respective categories, thereby making the results final, uncontestable and sacred.

For the past three decades of Star Awards for Movies, the PMPC has weathered the hardest obstacles and has remained undaunted.

There will be forces that will try to destroy the credibility and reputation of the Club, but the PMPC will remain committed to its objectives, and no amount of intimidation and coercion can shake its foundation.

The PMPC, its Board of Directors and Members, will always stand firm on their decision.

Below are some of Jobert Sucaldito’s tweets.

Barely two weeks ago, some members talked to me at nagtanong kung hindi ko raw ba ila-lobby si Jeorge Estregan for best actor dahil ang kanilang napusuang rightful winner na si Joel Torre for the movie On The Job won’t get the votes dahil hindi nila kayang magbayad sa voting members, i thought of something. kung hindi rin lang mananalo si joel torre who is the rightful winner, might as well fight na lang for my anak-anakang jeorge estregan for Boy Golden dahil they said that he is next in line for Best Actor. But how? i have to call first members of PMPC para makasiguro ako sa pagkapanalo ng alaga ko dahil PR man ako. that’s part of the lobbying.

I have to siyempre weigh first kung may laban ako. since 38 lang naman ang voting members, i have to get at least a vote more than half of them – meaning, more than 19 in short. so i commissioned 22 of Them bago ako sumugal huwag na nating pangalanan but worse come to worst ay willing ako to name names. promise! Wala akong pakialam dahil lokohan pala ito.”

What do you think about the recently concluded PMPC Star Awards? Did Vice Ganda really won the Best Actor award fair and square? Or is Jobert Sucaldito’s accusations about vote buying true?
