My god, after ng fiasco about the abusadong "critic" na nanood ng play ng theater down south, itutuloy pa din ito? for me nawalan na ng credibility ang philstage. HINDI objective ang mga voters. pinersonal ang mga taong nagteteatro. ok lang kung friend mo sila pero patay ka pag hindi,. ano ba. sana madala na ang mga critics na ito at matuto na huwag naman silang abusado sa position nila. nakakahiya. hindi naman trained pero kung makaasta parang alam nila lahat

magaling ang sinabi hi anon, hindi dahil sa sinabi mismo kundi dahil maraming tanong ang maari pang isunod. ano nga ba no ang papel ng kritiko sa mundo ng sining o sa sitwasyong ito, sa mundo ng teatro sa pilipinas? may saysay ba (dahil may naitutulong sa pag-unlad) ang mga parangal na tulad nito? sino o ano ang nagbibigay ng karapatan para sa isang tao o grupo na gumawa ng pamantayan para sa galing ng sining? ano ang nagagawa ng mga nasabing pamantayan sa pag-unlad ng sining na ito? sino ang may higit na karapatan para bantayan at puspusan ang pag-unlad na ito: ang manggagawa ng sining mismo o ang mga kritiko? ano dapat ang relasyon ng mga ito sa labas ng mundong ginagalawan nila? hmmm

BEEKTUR, just to clarify: this is not a critics' body. out of some 17 jurors, only 3 review plays on a regular basis, each one of whom has one vote, and who is, more often than not, outvoted in his preferences. the awards are a guild recognition among the member companies, with assistance from a constituted independent jury that includes, but is not limited to and certainly not dominated by, newspaper reviewers. the pertinent paragraphs again:

"Gawad Buhay! is the first industry awards conferred for outstanding achievements in the performing arts by member-companies of the Philippine Legitimate Stage Artists Group, Inc. (PHILSTAGE). The PHILSTAGE Board of Directors is composed of Tanghalang Pilipino’s Fernando Josef, president; PETA's Melvin Lee, vice president; Ballet Philippines’ Sandy Hontiveros, secretary; Repertory Philippines' Gidget Tolentino, treasurer; Actors Actors’ Leonardo Lim, Ballet Manila's Susan Macuja, Gantimpala Theater Foundation’s Tony Espejo, Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit’s Mitch Valdes, TRUMPETS' Joel Reyes as Board Members, and PHILSTAGE Executive Director Elmar Beltran Ingles.

While PHILSTAGE administers the awards, the final recipients will be chosen by an independent Jury Panel selected by the PHILSTAGE Board of Directors from a roster of critics, performing artists, cultural researchers and scholars, and the general public."

gibbs -- yun naman pala. eh maganda pala dahil sila-sila mismo ang nagbabantay at kung ganon ay nagpupunyagi na mapabuti pang lalo ang mga gawa nila (kasi, hindi binabasa hanggang katapusan eh). pero interesante ang relasyon mga hurado ha. kahit pa, tanong ko pa rin ang mga naitanong ko. hala, sa ibang araw sana may mga sagot akong makuha. (ewan ko ba, masarap managalog sa mga panahong ito.)

sad lang kasi nagkagulogulo dito ang mga voters at naging questionable ang objectivity ng mga taong involved.

Sa taong ayaw makilala (anonymous),

Maari bang malaman kung ano ang ibig mong sabihin sa sinulat mong "nagkakagulo dito ang mga voters." ?
