Filipino film makers should focus on stopping production of BAD movies and TV rather than engage in poltical activism

It all just comes across as being a trying hard copycat. But these are, after all, members of the Philippines' mediocre film industry where originality and substance all take a back seat to a quick buck on junk that appeals to the shallow masses' low-brow tastes. Indeed, Filipino makers invented the art of being trying-hard copycats.

Nonetheless, rather than focus their outrage on the rot in their own backyard, the Philippines' top entertainment honchos made headlines that screamed Gawad Urian winners, presenters make stand vs gov't...
During the awards night at the Vertis Tent in Quezon City, dozens from the film industry joined the protest by wearing red pins with the text, "Stop the Attacks." Notably, members of the Manunuri ng Pelikulang Pilipino, the organizers behind Gawad Urian, wore the pin to the event.
These Filipino entertainers, in fact, should, themselves, be taken to task for their own contribution to the degeneracy of Philippine society as noted columnist Isagani Cruz had observed...
The Philippine entertainment industry is not only a vast wasteland, as television has been described in America, but a vicious instrument for the abatement of the nation’s intelligence. The shows it offers for the supposed recreation of the people are generally vulgar and smutty, usually with some little moral lesson inserted to make them look respectable, but offensive nonetheless. On the whole, they are obnoxious and unwholesome and deserve to be trashed.
There's a lot more within these bozos' immediate sphere of influence that can be fixed and that deserve more of their attention rather than on these hollow-headed virtue signalling that only makes them look like even bigger idiots.
