GMA Network won top accolades from last night’s awarding ceremony of this year’s RAWR Awards, taking home the biggest haul of trophies among the honorees. GMA Network programs and Kapuso personalities scored wins in three out of four category groups (Cub, Lion, Pride).

The fun duo of Don Bocco and Jericho Arceo has delighted audiences through their cute friendship and roles as the reliable sidekicks to Alden Richards’s character in The World Between Us. Both earned the CUB award, Beshie ng Taon, an honor handed out to the best sidekicks and supporting characters in a film or a TV series. Ayra Mariano from Heartful Cafe and Kiray Celis from Owe My Love, were also nominated under the category.

It’s also not surprising that The World Between Us was named Bet Na Bet Na Teleserye for offering a fresh look at us-against-world romances. Alden Richards and Jasmine Curtis-Smith top-bill the series. Other Kapuso shows who vied under this said category were the Sanya Lopez-starrer, First Yaya, and the recently-concluded Dennis Trillo-starred, Legal Wives.

Kapuso Drama King, Dennis Trillo led Kapuso artists and shows nominated under various LION Awards. The Legal Wives actor won the biggest acting trophy for this year’s RAWR Awards, as he got named the Actor of the Year. For her brilliant comic timing in Daddy’s Gurl, Eat Bulaga host Maine Mendoza bagged the Pak Na Pak Na Comedian award. Her fellow Kapusos Pokwang, Michael V, Boobay and Tekla, Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola, and Chariz Solomon were also nominated under the same category. The recognition is RAWR Nation’s meaningful way of recognizing the best in the art of making audiences laugh.

State of the Nation anchor, Atom Araullo, bested his fellow nominees under the Male News Personality of the Year category to win this year’s trophy. The award-winning Kapuso broadcast journalist has also been known for his gritty and informative documentaries. Two of his fellow Kapuso broadcast journalists–Mike Enriquez and Ivan Mayrina also vied to take home the award.

GMA Network’s wins this year are capped by undoubtedly one of the biggest honors awarded by LionhearTV’s RAWR Awards–the Station of the Year award. GMA Network bested out major television networks in the country, including A2Z 11 and TV5.



The 2021 RAWR Awards is the seventh edition of the annual award-giving body spearheaded by LionhearTV, one of the country’s leading entertainment sites. Winners are decided by fans and members of the online entertainment press and PR personalities.
