Comely actress and model Angel Locsin has earned yet another international acting recognition.


This time, she won the Best Supporting Actress award at the 57th Asia Pacific Film Festival for her role in the 2016 movie "Everything About Her.


Angel, 32, whose real name Angel Locsin Colmenares, failed to make it at the awarding ceremony  at Phnom Penh, Cambodia on July 30.


Angel, who is known for her portrayal of the iconic "Darna," did not personally accept the trophy but took to image-sharing application Instagram with a photo of the trophy to thank everyone who supported the film. "Thank you very, very much for this incredible honor," she wrote.


Mico Del Rosario, AdProm head of Star Cinema, provided info about the event by posting on his Instagram account:


"ANGEL LOCSIN JUST WON BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS at The 57th Asia-Pacific Film Festival for Everything About Her! | 57th Asia-Pacific Film Festival now in Phnom Penh, Cambodia."


It was learned Filipino director Will Fredo accepted her trophy on her behalf.


In Everything About Her, Angel was cast as Jaica, the nurse of cancer patient Vivian played by Vilma Santos. This drama film directed by Joyce Bernal premiered in the Philippines in January 2016.


In the 37th International Emmy Awards, Angel was nominated as Best Actress for her performance in "Lobo.".


Angel did the movie "Everything About Her" when she and Luis Manzano, son of Vilma Santos, were still in a relationship.


Vilma Santos, who is now a congresswoman of Batangas, earlier won the Best Actress award for her role in the movie at the first EDDYs (Entertainment Editors’ Choice Awards for Movies) by the Society of Philippine Entertainment Editors (SPEEd) last July 9 at the KIA Theater at the Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City.
