In the past 34 years, it was only in 1994 that there was no Best Picture winner. It’s also interesting to note that in 2006, Enteng Kabisote 3 won Best Picture award besting the well-made Star Cinema comedy Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo. It’s just one of the most controversial years in the history of the filmfest.

This year, the Best Picture award is being contested by three films: Regal’ Mano Po 6, Star Cinema’s I Love You Goodbye and GMA/Imus Productions’ Ang Panday. But since Mano Po 6 was the only entry which got an “A” rating from the Cinema Evaluation Board for production excellence, then the Sharon Cuneta-starrer is the most likely to win the Best Picture award.

Among the 7 entries this year, which movie do you think will win the MMFF Best Picture?

And among the winning films from 1975 to 2008, which entry do you think was the Best Picture of all time?
