Take a look at the 2017 FAMAS Awards winners.

Fans of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, KathNiel, were hoping for a double win at the FAMAS Awards 2017. Both were nominated for their performances in ‘Barcelona:A Love Untold’. However, their wish was not to be. 

Daniel Padilla may have won Best Actor but Kathryn lost to Angelica Panganiban for her performance in ‘The Unmarried Wife’. But KathNiel fans still have reasons to celebrate because the movie walked away with the most trophies this year, including Best Picture and Best Director.

If we are not mistaken, this is the second best actor award for Daniel Padilla for ‘Barcelona’. earlier this year, he was given the same recognition by the PMPC.
