Zulueta holds the distinction of winning both the Filipino Academy of Movies Arts and Sciences (FAMAS) awards for Best Lead Actress (Hihintayin Kita sa Langit) and Best Supporting Actress (Una Kang Naging Akin) in 1991. She also won the Supporting Actress of the Year in the Film Academy of the Philippines for Una Kang Naging Akin.[3] She was also declared by the Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Foundation Entertainment Award as the Box Office Queen of 1994 for starring in that year's highest-grossing film: The Maggie Dela Riva Story...God Why Me?[4]
