She shared about her win on Instagram.

Matatagal ko din hindi nagawa ito. Medyo na miss ko ito. Salamat po ng maraming-marami sa bumubuo ng MMFF, MMDA at sa lahat po ng cast an crew sa likod ng Mindanao. Direk Brillante, thank you so much for sharing your talent with me. Habang buhay ko po itong i-tretreasure. Isa itong experience na hinding-hindi ako magsasawa ikuwento ng paulit-ulit,” Santos said in her acceptance speech.

Sa lahat po na kasama sa festival na ito, thank you so much dahil napakaganda ng mga pelikula na nahanay sa amin. It’s a privilege na mapabilang sa 45th Metro Manila Film Festival.”

Direk, pwede naming pagsamahin ni Allen yung P200,000 pwede na ba natin… kikita na siguro tayo kahit papaano. Merry Christmas. This is such a wonderful end to my 2019. It’s a beautiful year. To God be the glory.”
