Via Live Twitterage--Cinemalaya 2011 Complete List of Winners

By Gibbs22manila @gibbscadiz
Decided I wanted to try live-tweeting the Cinemalaya awards night, which meant I had to forego my usual videotaping of the winners' speeches. Ngarag pala, but rather thrilling--it was a three-hour show, I couldn't go to the rest room at any time (I'm afraid I have incipient UTI now), my phone battery was threatening to fizzle out, the program itself had one intermission number too many, and I had to type fast but correctly! (sorry, OC). Also, while the CCP Main Theater didn't activate its signal jammers, it had no WiFi either, so I resorted to 3G, which kept dropping all the time. Still--nakaraos din, down to the very last winners! Here's the blow-by-blow account, in 140 characters or less. Thanks to everyone who tuned in and rah-rah-ed me on.
And on that note, my live-tweeting signing off. Battery less than 10 percent, sheth!
