ABS-CBN proved to be the runaway choice of students and professors after receiving 82 awards for its radio and TV personalities and programs from the scholars and teachers of Gawad Tanglaw (Tagapuring mga Akademisyan ng Aninong Gumagalaw), which comprises of Jose Rizal University, Philippine Women’s University, University of Perpetual Help System, Colegio De San Juan de Letran and other universities, University of Sto. Tomas’ USTv Students’ Choice Awards, St. Scholastica College Manila’s Hildegarde Awards for Women in Media and Communication, Northwest Samar State University (NWSSU)’s Students’ Choice Awards for Radio and TV, and the University of the Philippines-Los Baños’ Gandingan: Isko’t Iska’t Broadcast Choice Awards.
The 11th Gawad Tanglaw awarded ABS-CBN a total of 26 awards, while GMA only received 13 and TV5, four. ABS-CBN also received the most number of trophies, 20 at the USTv Awards, while GMA and TV5 only got ten and one, respectively.
Educational program “Matanglawin” and DZMM’s “Aksyon Ngayon” anchored by Kaye Dacer and Julius Babao received recognition at the Hildegarde Awards for their outstanding achievement in broadcast journalism.
ABS-CBN also won 13 honors at the NWSSU Awards, while it won 21 awards from UP Gandingan in January, including the top plum, Most Development-Oriented TV Station and Best AM Station for DZMM.
“Be Careful With My Heart” lead stars Jodi Sta. Maria and Richard Yap received the loudest cheer from the audiences in both Gawad Tanglaw and USTv Awards, which were both held last March 7.
The entire cast of the top-rating program attended the awarding ceremonies to personally thank the crowd for their continous support and accept the Best Daily Local Soap Opera and Best Ensemble Performance awards in USTv and the Best Ensemble Performance and Best TV series in Gawad Tanglaw.
Meanwhile, “Umagang Kay Ganda,” “Maalaala Mo Kaya” and “DZMM” were inducted in Gawad Tanglaw’s Hall of Fame for Best Morning Show, Best Drama Anthology, and Best AM Radio Station after having received the said accolades in five years.
Kapamilya stars stole the show at the Gawad Tanglaw led by Gerald Anderson, who received the perfect birthday gift, his Best Performance by an Actor award for “Budoy.” Coco Martin also won the same award for “Walang Hanggan.”
ABS-CBN swept all drama acting categories, with Helen Gamboa and Janice de Belen receiving the Best Performance by an Actress honors for “Walang Hanggan” and “Budoy.” Carlo Aquino and Dimples Romana were also granted their Best Performance by an Actor at Best Performance by an Actress awards for their portrayal in separate “MMK” episodes.
USTv Award’s biggest winner was Angel Locsin, who bagged the first ever Students’ Leader Choice of TV Personality for being a good role model who excels in her craft and helps people through charitable works.
Queen of All Media Kris Aquino was hailed the Student’s Choice of Talk Variety Show Host for “Kris TV,” while director Chito Rono was recognized for his work in Star Cinema’s “The Healing” which was named Students’ Choice of Local Full Length Film.
ABS-CBN also conquered the News and Current Affairs categories in both Gawad Tanglaw and USTv. In Gawad Tanglaw, Pinky Webb was selected the Best News Anchor, “TV Patrol Weekend” the Best news Program, “Rated K” the Best Magazine Show, and “SOCO” the Best Investigative Program. ANC, on the other hand, emerged as this year’s most awarded news channel with four awards, while GMA News TV got two.
In USTv, Ted Failon was awarded the Students’ Choice of Male News and Current/Public Affairs Host for “Failon Ngayon,” which won the Students’ Choice of Investigative Program. “The Bottomline” prevailed as the Students’ Choice of Public Affairs Show, “Ako ang Simula” as the Students’ Choice of Public Service Program, and “TV Patrol” as the Students’ Choice of Local News and Current/Public Affairs Program.
