*Theaterbator is confused because Sipat Lawin Ensemble is not the same group as Dulaang Sipat Lawin, which is the theater group of the Philippine High School for the Arts. Theaterbator wonders which group is the nominated group.

**What do these acronyms stand for? Theaterbator is unable to Google the groups' full names.
