Piolo Pascual and Angel Locsin from LOBO

Yes you heard it right. I thought I was reading something from a tabloid too when my eyes passed by that part. Little did I know that it was true. Angel Locsin is now nominated for Best Actress for Lobo, while Kahit Isang Saglit (A time for us) with Carmen Soo and Jericho Rosales and Magdusa Ka of Katrina Halili and Dennis Trillo is nominated for Best Telenovela together with Brazil's India- A Love Story and France's Second Chance. It seems just awesome seeing Filipino flicks appearing before the world's best.

Angel Locsin's Best Actress category is no joke because she will be pitted against Mexico's Cecilia Suarez for Capadocia, British actress Julie Walters for A Short Stay In Switzerland (who also appeared in Harry Potter) and France's Emma de Caunes for Night Birds. This is just a big deal for Philippine Television indeed.

Over 600 judges from 50 different countries judged these programs in a span of 6 months. The awarding ceremonies will be seen from Hilton New York on November 23, 2009. From KUMAGCOW and the rest of the Philippines, GOODLUCK!
