The Gawad Urian Awards are prestigious annual Philippine film awards which have been held since 1977 by the Manunuri ng Pelikulang Pilipino (the Filipino Film Critics). The name “urian” refers to a standard of gold in Tagalog, and connotes the award’s high standards, which aimed to rival that of the other main film award in the Philippines at the time it was established, the FAMAS Awards. It is currently the only award in the Philippines to use the Filipino language in its name and in its presentation ceremonies. It was also the first to award digital films.

The awards are known for occasionally unusual choices. In particular, small independent productions have often been recognized by the award-giving body.

The awards have been given every year, except in 1987, when the committee declared that there was an insufficient number of deserving winners. There are 12 categories of awards:

  • Pinakamahusay na Pelikula (Best Picture)
  • Pinakamahusay na Direksyon (Best Direction)
  • Pinakamahusay na Dulang Pampelikula (Best Screenplay)
  • Pinakamahusay na Pagganap ng Isang Pangunahing Aktor (Best Actor)
  • Pinakamahusay na Pagganap ng Isang Pangunahing Aktres (Best Actress)
  • Pinakamahusay na Pagganap ng Isang Pangalawang Aktor (Best Supporting Actor)
  • Pinakamahusay na Pagganap ng Isang Pangalawang Aktres (Best Supporting Actress)
  • Pinakamahusay na Disenyong Pamproduksyon (Best Production Design)
  • Pinakamahusay na Sinematograpiya (Best Cinematography)
  • Pinakamahusay na Musika (Best Musical Score)
  • Pinakamahusay na Tunog (Best Sound)
  • Pinakamahusay na Editing (Best Film Editing)

In addition, there are two special awards. The Natatanging Gawad Urian (Gawad Urian Lifetime Achievement Award) is given to a film artist who has made a great contribution in Philippine filmmaking. The Gawad Urian Aktor at Aktress ng Dekada (Urian Award for Actor and Actress of the Decade) are given during first year of each decade to the actor/s and actress/es who received the largest numbers of Gawad Urian Awards for their roles over the previous decade. In 1992, the Gawad Urian for the first and the last time awarded the Ginintuang Gawad Urian (the Golden Urian Award) to Mike de Leon.
