Now that it’s awards season, different film institutions are also acknowledging her amazing performance.

She is assumed to be the first Filipina to receive a nomination in the Golden Globe Awards. Before her, Darren Criss became the first Filipino-American actor to be nominated and awarded with a Golden Globe when he won Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series in 2019.
Aside from the Golden Globes, Dolly de Leon was also nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role at the 27th Satellite Awards and for Best Supporting Actress and Best Breakthrough Performance at the 4th DiscussingFilm Critic Awards.

Following the Golden Globe announcement, de Leon issued a short statement about her wins and nominations:
“It’s an honor and a privilege to be recognized by critics who think outside the box and recognize the artistry of film-making. I’m proud to represent every individual who is struggling in their chosen industry — much like Abigail. Every single soul who’s watched the film would know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t, go out and find out. It’s still in cinemas [in the Philippines]. PARA SA ‘TIN ‘TO.”
