JAKARTA - Rano Karno has proven that he still has qualities and abilities that are not inferior to younger actors, even though he has taken a long break from acting. At the 2019 Indonesian Movie Actors (IMA) Awards, Thursday (14/3/2019) the actor was chosen as the Best Main Male Actor.
After the 2019 Indonesian Movie Actors (IMA) Awards' Favorite Main Male Actor was won by Gading Marten through the film Love For Sale, the Best Main Male Actor was won by veteran actor Rano Karno, Thursday (14/3/2019). This award was chosen directly by the jury consisting of different backgrounds.
Even though he has been absent from the film industry for so long, Rano's acting skills in every film are unquestionable. To win this prestigious award at the 2019 IMA Awards is not easy. The reason is, in this category, Rano has to compete with other talented actors who are much younger than him. They are Adipati Dolken, Ario Bayu, Augie Fantinus, Dion Wiyoko, Gading Marten and Ringgo Agus Rahman.
In his remarks when receiving this award, Rano said Si Doel The Movie 2 would be released on Eid al-Fitr 2019.
"Assalamualaikum, good night. First of all, I want to say Alhamdulillah to Allah. Second, I would like to thank my wife and children who continue to accompany me with Si Doel's family and thank you to RCTI, which broadcasts Si Doel every year, starting from village children to Governor. God willing, on Hari Raya 2019 we can meet Si Doel 2," said Rano at Studio 14 MNC Studios, Jakarta, Thursday (14/3/2019).
In addition, the 2019 IMA Awards also gave another prestigious award, namely a lifetime achievement to the famous director and actress, Jajang C Noer. This award was read out by the 2019 IMA Awards judges. Jajang C Noer himself started his career as a scene recorder. The 66-year-old woman has starred in more than 30 films and has won various prestigious awards, both national and international.
"With pride, the lifetime achievement for the Indonesia Movie Actors Awards was given to Jajang C Noer," said Lukman Sardi as Chair of the 2019 IMA Awards Jury.
Not only as an actress, her career as a director began after the death of Arifin C Noer, who was none other than her husband. In fact, his dedication to the role of throwing Jajang C Noer into the world is believed to be a jury at various international film festivals.
"Alhamdulillah, thank God for giving me this. Through Arifin C Noer, who provided for me and gave the children who forced me because of them, I worked until here. Thank you, my mother told me to work so I got this. When I finished watching 2 weeks ago with my friends there were 10 people. I opened my WhatsApp, got the WhatsApp from the Miss while crying brebes mili, while crying really I got the lifetime achievement award. Yes, thanks to the judges. Thanks to all the directors who have handled me , because after all the director plays an important role. No matter how good the cast is, the director is stupid, all of them are stupid. Of these I am good. Thank you RCTI, thank you MNC and I want to share this with my grandchildren. Indonesian films must keep going, keep going until we don't have one, keep going," said Jajang.
The 2019 IMA Awards were attended by 55 film titles and of these, 8 best categories were selected directly by the jury and 7 favorite categories selected by the public. All of these films are Indonesian films, whether broadcast at home or abroad, from March 1 2018 to January 31 2019.
