“I haven’t seen ‘Triangle of Sadness’ yet but I’m still proud of Dolly de Leon too, like (crying emoji) she has a bright future ahead in the industry, THAT’S MOTHER,” another online user commented.

“A nomination is still a massive WIN! Congratulations, Miss Dolly de Leon!” a different Pinoy exclaimed.

“Congratulations still to Ms. Dolly De Leon for being the first Filipino to be nominated at the #GoldenGlobes,” another online user commented.
