[Complete list of nominees below]

The Philippine Legitimate Stage Artists Group, Inc. (Philstage), in cooperation with the Cultural Center of the Philippines, will confer the 2009 “Gawad Buhay!: the PHILSTAGE Awards for the Performing Arts,” on Friday, March 26, 2010, 7:30 p.m., at the Tanghalang Aurelio Toletino (CCP Little Theater).

The awards show is free admission and open to the public.

An independently juried peer award, Gawad Buhay! is the first-ever industry awards exclusively for the performing arts. Ninety-five artists and productions vie for 30 individual and group award categories honoring outstanding achievements in play, musical and dance productions of Philstage member-companies for 2009.

“With the excitement building up after the award’s maiden edition last year, we expect bigger support from the artists, our friends in the media and our audiences for this year’s ceremonies,” said Fernando Josef, Philstage president and artistic director of Tanghalang Pilipino.

A distinguished achievement award called “Natatanging Gawad Buhay!” will also be conferred to artists and corporate supporters who have contributed significantly to the professionalization of Philippine Performing Arts.

Its Board of Directors include 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' Audie Gemora and PHILSTAGE Executive Director Elmar Beltran Ingles as members.

to clarify, as i did the last time, just to be fair to zzz and tanghalang pilipino: technically for the philstage awards, zzz was a new production last year that deserved consideration like other philstage shows. there is no 'restaging' yet for the philstage awards because this is only its 2nd year as a body, and last year was only the first time the constituted jury as a whole saw zzz. that's why it's there. the last time (before 2009) that zzz was staged, wala pang philstage awards. tama lang na bago mamahinga ang isang show, ma-consider ang merits niya kung meron man.
