If Hollywood has the Oscars, Philippine cinema has the Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences, more commonly known by its abbreviation, FAMAS. Held on June 10, 2018 at The Theatre at Solaire, Balangiga: Howling Wilderness emerged as the big winner, bagging five awards, including Best Picture.

Hosted by Robi Domingo, Kim Chiu, and Piolo Pascual, the 66th FAMAS awards night is a mark in the history for the revamping of the award-giving body.
