A tribute to Susan Roces, ‘Queen of Philippine Movies’

The Manila Times — 5.6.2022

The ‘King and Queen of Philippine Movies,’ together at last.

Miss Susan Roces has lived a full life as a woman, a wife, a mother, a veteran actress, an industry stalwart — a true queen.

At the celebration of Philippine Cinema’s centennial year last 2019, the Film Development Council of the Philippines named Miss Susan Roces as one of Sine Sandaan’s Philippine Cinema Luminaries and half of the Love Team of the Century award, which she shared with her late husband Fernando Poe, Jr. She had made an indelible mark not just in the first 100 years of our cinematic history but more importantly in our collective memory as a nation.

Her performances in her extensive filmography have been recognized by the most respected award-giving bodies in the country such as the Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences Awards (Famas), Film Academy of the Philippines (FAP) Awards, and the Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC) Star Awards for Movies.
