Anne Curtis proud of sister Jasmine

MANILA - Kapamilya star Anne Curtis expressed her happiness over the latest achievement of her sister, actress Jasmine Curtis-Smith. Jasmine is part of the film "Transit," which is now the country's official entry to the 68th Academy Awards. "Congrats to the whole team behind Transit!!! Praying with you that the film gets nominated! Represent!…," Curtis tweeted. In an interview with "Mornings@ANC" on Thursday, Jasmine said that she still can't believe that her first film, “Transit,” will be the country's entry to the Oscars. “I was actually in school, I just went to the library, I was on my laptop doing a bit of social networking and then our film editor tweeted that Transit is the Philippines’ entry to the Oscars. I replied saying ‘Hahaha what a joke, muntikan na ako ma-heart attack.’ And then someone retweeted from an article from an actual newspaper here and it just made everything legit. I started panicking, I was crying. I called my manager. I had to leave the library so I can express my joy,” she said. Shot in Herzliya, Israel, "Transit" tells the story of Moises (Ping Medina) and Janet (Irma Adlawan), two overseas Filipinos who are forced to hide their respective children (Marc Justine Alvarez and Curtis-Smith) after learning of the government's plan to deport children of foreign workers. Paul Soriano, the producer of the fim and its director said they are gearing up for a strategic campaign to boost the film's chances of earning an official nomination. The October 1 deadline for film submissions will be followed by the Academy's release of a list of eligible entries later that month. This will be trimmed down to nine finalists in January, with the final five nominees announced in the same month. The 86th Academy Awards ceremony will follow on March 2 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, California.
