Lea Salonga: “Why hasn’t Nora Aunor been honored with the National Artist Award?”

LEA SALONGA – Broadway actress Lea Salonga reacted to veteran actress Nora Aunor’s exclusion from recipients of the National Artist Award.

Recently, one of the topics that crossed the surface is the exclusion of Nora Aunor from the nominees for the National Artist Award. President Rodrigo Roa Duterte recently announced 7 national artists.

  • Francisco Mañosa
  • Larry Alcala
  • Amelia Lapeña Bonifacio
  • Ryan Cayabyab
  • Resil Mojares
  • Ramon Muzones
  • Kidlat Tahimik

Reportedly, it is not the first time that Nora Aunor’s name is linked to the National Artist Award. During the term of then-President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, she was nominated but also eliminated due to her alleged use of drugs.

    I agree with Ms. Lea Salonga, ang nakaraan ni Nora ay nakaraan na at tapos na yun. Lahat ng tao ay may pinagdaan for sure lahat ng nominada meron din ibat ibang klase lang. I will be praying for Ms. Nora Aunor that someday you will get higher than that award.
