Dolly De Leon Dominates Award-Giving Bodies For Her ‘Triangle of Sadness’ Performance


Fresh from her Best Supporting Performance win at the LA Film Critics Awards, Dolly De Leon also claims nominations for the Golden Globes and Satellite Awards

The talent of Filipinos is the gift that keeps on giving here and abroad. From sold-out concerts to juror inclusions, this year has shown that we can conquer the world. This time, it’s actress Dolly De Leon who gets her well-fitting international acclaim. 

A deserving recognition

Recently, the actress has received back-to-back recognition and even a win for her role as Abigail in the movie, Triangle of Sadness. The Los Angeles Film Critics Association named De Leon the Best Supporting Performer alongside Everything Everywhere All at Once actor, Ke Huy Quan. 

She also bagged three nominations for Best Actress in a Supporting Role in three other award-giving bodies, such as 4th DiscussingFilm Critics Awards, International Press Academy Satellite Awards, and the Golden Globe Awards.

As of writing, De Leon is the first Filipino actress to receive this nomination at the Golden Globes. 

Dolly’s acting mission

When asked about her consecutive achievements, the actress shared, “It’s an honor and a privilege to be recognized by critics who think outside the box and recognize the artistry of film-making. I’m proud to represent every individual who is struggling in their chosen industry, much like Abigail.”

She further said, “Every single soul who’s watched the film would know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t, go out and find out. It’s still in cinemas dito sa ‘tin. Para sa’tin ‘to.”

“I’m honored to be finally seen. Sa buong bayan, sa bawat Pilipino dito at overseas na lumalaban araw-araw, sa mga nawawalan ng pag-asa. Hindi ako mag-isa dito. Magkakasama tayo.”
