Actor Raymond “RS” Francisco won for his role in Bhoy Instik. He tied with Kristoffer King for the movie Kristo.

Raymond, who has been acting since he was a kid, was emotional as he accepted the award.

“I just want to check the results. Baka ma-La La Land,” Raymond said, refering to the recent Oscar’s incident, wherein La La Land was mistakenly named as Best Picture, though the actual winner was Moonlight.
