After refashioning the previous awarding ceremony online, the fifth EDDYS (Entertainment Editors’ Choice) returns with an in-person event to be held at the historic Metropolitan Theater (MET) on November 27, promising tough competition among the Filipino movies released on various platforms in 2021. 

The awards show is hosted by Boy Abunda and directed by Ice Seguerra.

Meanwhile, competing in the Best Actress category are Janine Gutierrez (Dito at Doon), Kim Molina (Ang Babaeng Walang Pakiramdam), Maja Salvador (Arisaka), Charo Santos (Kun Maupay Man It Panahon), and Alessandra de Rossi (My Amanda).
