We were there last year covering at the sidelines of the red carpet. I thought this year was just going to pass but it looks like the 25th installment of the Asian Television Awards is pushing through and will be hosted by Wallace Ang together with actor Benjamin Josiah Tan from Singapore, anchor Ji Xiao Jun from China, beauty queen Rennie Lau from Malaysia and ATA 2020’s winning “Best Actress in a Supporting Role” Anyarin Terathananpat of Thailand. This will be headed by the international creative firm Wonder Paradise Group. Entries from the whole Asia Pacific region have been coming in, so expect the best
For those who don't know, the ATA's has been recognizing actors, directors, producers, artists and presenters since 1996. They also have awarded several Asian programs and TV networks in the region. This year, it's going to be a lot different as the format will all be done digital. The ATA Technical and Creative Awards will be held on January 15th and will be streamed on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Weibo at 8:00 PM wherein 30 awards will be presented plus a new category for Best Direction of Non-Fiction entries. There will be performances by actor, singer and dancer Alfred Sng, singer Sherraine Law, pop artist HAVEN and singer Emiliano Cyrus who hails from Singapore. Ernie Zakri and Lee Pei Ling from Malaysia will also be singing, plus a number by Dat Ozy from Vietnam and our very own Sam Concepcion from the Philippines.
Again, the 25th Asian Television Awards will be shown in 500 million homes across a network of regional broadcast partner networks on January 16, 2021 at 8:00 PM. This includes Formosa TV of Taiwan, Viu TV of Hong Kong, Jiangsu Broadcast from China, Cignal Colours and TV5 from the Philippines, Bangkok TV of Thailand, Today TV from Vietnam, Channel O, Citra Entertainment and the Indonesia Channel for Indonesia and last but not the least Bayon TV of Cambodia.
