27th PMPC Star Awards for TV Predictions   4 comments

Okay let’s shift the tone a bit and move from the Emmys to the local TV awards. I know, I know the PMPC Star Awards aren’t exactly the most prestigious measure of TV merits, but I find them always fun with WTF noms and wins every now and then. So I’ll try to do a first and predict the winners in 57 different categories come Sunday’s telecast.

tv station

 

Best TV station

  • ABS-CBN-2
  • PTV-4
  • TV5
  • GMA-7
  • ETC-9
  • GMA News TV-11
  • IBC-13
  • Studio 23
  • Net 25
  • UNTV-37
  • AksyonTV-41*
  • AksyonTV-45*

Anyone knows the difference between AksyonTV-41 and 45? Me neither. On one hand, it’s commendable that they nominate all existing local channels, but then again, ETC and IBC both only have one nomination, so is it really worth mentioning that they’re still up for best TV station when nothing from their programs get nominated for any award? Anyway, if it’s any indication, the awards theme on Sunday is celebration of 60 years of television, so I don’t how it can get any more obvious than that.

PREDICTION: ABSCBN 2
ALTERNATE: GMA-7

drama series

Best Primetime Drama Series

  • Apoy Sa Dagat/ ABS-CBN 2
  • Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala/ ABS-CBN 2
  • Ina, Kapatid, Anak/ABS-CBN 2
  • Indio/ GMA 7
  • Juan dela Cruz/ ABS-CBN 2
  • My Husband’s Lover/ GMA 7
  • Pahiram ng Sandali/ GMA 7

This one is quite difficult since sometimes they go for merit over buzz (like Amaya winning over Walang Hanggan last year), at times they go buzz over merit (Tayong Dalawa winning over May Bukas Pa), or even a combination of both (Pangako Sa’yo). This year, there’s a lot that fits in any of the categories. I guess the too much buzz over the series makes me want to predict My Husband’s Lover to win the top plum this year.

PREDICTION: My Husband’s Lover
ALTERNATE: Ina Kapatid Anak

drama actor

Best Drama Actor

  • Bong Revilla /Indio/ GMA 7
  • Coco Martin / Juan Dela Cruz /ABS-CBN 2
  • Dennis Trillo/ My Husband’s Lover/ GMA 7
  • John Lloyd Cruz/ A Beautiful Affair/ ABS- CBN 2
  • Piolo Pascual/ Apoy Sa Dagat /ABS- CBN 2
  • Richard Yap/ Be Careful With My Heart /ABS-CBN 2
  • Tom Rodriguez/ My Husband’s Lover/ GMA 7

Obviously, Bong Revilla is out here. I also think that despite being past winners, both John Lloyd Cruz (2000, 2004, and 2006 winner) and Piolo Pascual (2007 winner) are out of contention also. Now it gets trickier. Richard Yap seems like a PMPC choice, but then again he didn’t even win Breakthrough Actor last year. While Coco Martin is always in contention, I don’t know if they’ll reward him a third win in six years. Thus, in a sort of predictable manner, I’d say they give a tie to both Husband’s Lover actors to continue the love fest. if only one wins though, maybe Dennis Trillo gets his first win here.

PREDICTION: Tom Rodriguez and Dennis TrilloMy Husband’s Lover
ALTERNATE: Richard Yap, Be Careful with My Heart

drama actress

Best Drama Actress

  • Carla Abellana/ My Husband’s Lover/ GMA 7
  • Janice De Belen/ Ina, Kapatid, Anak/ ABS-CBN 2
  • Jodi Sta. Maria/ Be Careful With My Heart /ABS-CBN 2
  • Judy Ann Santos/ Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala/ ABS-CBN 2
  • Kim Chiu / Ina, Kapatid, Anak/ ABS-CBN 2
  • Maja Salvador/ Ina, Kapatid, Anak/ABS- CBN 2
  • Marian Rivera/ Temptation Of Wife/ GMA 7
  • Nora Aunor /Never Say Goodbye/ TV5

The only category with eight acting nominees this year, Drama Actress is a bit overcrowded. With that said, where’s Angelica Panganiban for her double acting method in Apoy sa Dagat? As for the winner, we can see a lot of names popping up here. Nora Aunor can go back to back, or Judy Ann Santos wins a second one for her grand teleserye comeback. Marian Rivera was nominated at the Asian TV Awards for this performance, so maybe she’ll inch a win as well. However, I think it’s an easy win for Jodi Sta. Maria whose Maya easily goes down as one of the most memorable TV characters in years.

PREDICTION: Jodi Sta. MariaBe Careful with My Heart
ALTERNATE: Judy Ann Santos, Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala

supporting actor

Best Drama Supporting Actor

  • Arjo Atayde / Dugong Buhay /ABS-CBN 2
  • Arron Villaflor / Juan Dela Cruz/ ABS -CBN 2
  • Carlo Aquino / Annaliza / ABS-CBN 2
  • Pen Medina / Bayan Ko / GMA NEWS TV
  • Roi Vinzon/ My Husband’s Lover /GMA 7
  • Ronaldo Valdez / Ina, Kapatid, Anak/ ABS-CBN 2
  • Tirso Cruz III/ Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala/ ABS-CBN 2

Thank God they finally introduced the supporting categories. And this year we got a mix of veteran, upcoming, and in between actors battling out. For this particular year, I think the first award will go to a veteran. Whether it’s Roi Vinzon’s homophobic dad in My Husband’s Lover or Ronaldo Valdez’ supportive grandpa in Ina Kapatid Anak,  the older men have the advantage here. I’d say in the end, Tirso Cruz III’s strict dad with a WTF secret twist wins with Pen Medina’s turn in Bayan Ko as possible spoiler.

PREDICTION: Tirso Cruz IIIHuwag Ka Lang Mawawala
ALTERNATE: Pen Medina, Bayan Ko

supp actress

Best Drama Supporting Actress

  • Amy Austria/ Lorenzo’s Time/ ABS-CBN 2
  • Angel Aquino/ Apoy Sa Dagat / ABS-CBN 2
  • Gina Pareño/ Juan Dela Cruz/ ABS-CBN 2
  • Glydel Mercado/ My Husband’s Lover/ GMA 7
  • KC Concepcion/ Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala/ ABS-CBN 2
  • Susan Roces/ Walang Hanggan/ ABS-CBN 2
  • Sylvia Sanchez /Be Careful With My Heart /ABS -CBN 2

While the supporting actor is a mix of new and old blood, the female counterpart more or less contains big names and character actresses in it. It’s worthy to note that Susan Roces is the only cross over nomination for Walang Hanggang whose breakout year last year, so maybe she has a fighting chance. But I guess, in the end it’s between KC Concepcion who garnered a lot of buzz for doing the unconventional kontrabida  role vs. Sylvia Sanchez’s supportive mom. I still go back and forth with this one, but for now, I’d say the former inches the latter by a hair.

PREDICTION: KC ConcepcionHuwag Ka Lang Mawawala
ALTERNATE: Sylvia Sanchez, Be Careful with My Heart

daytime drama

Best Daytime Drama Series

  • Be Careful With My Heart / ABS-CBN 2
  • Dugong Buhay/ ABS–CBN 2
  • Kakambal ni Eliana / GMA 7
  • Kung Ako’y Iiwan Mo/ ABS-CBN 2
  • May Isang Pangarap/ ABS-CBN 2
  • Mga Basang Sisiw/ GMA 7
  • My Little Juan/ ABS–CBN 2

Be Careful with My Heart. ‘Nuff said.

PREDICTION: Be Careful with My Heart
ALTERNATE: –

comedy series

 

Best Comedy Show

  • Pepito Manaloto: Ang Tunay na Kwento / GMA 7
  • Toda Max / ABS CBN 2
  • Vampire Ang Daddy Ko / GMA 7

Okay so this is what comedy in our television has to offer. Hmm. Gone were the days when we have at least more than five to choose from. I don’t even know with this one, but despite finishing few weeks ago, it will be a consecutive win for Toda Max.

PREDICTION: Toda Max
ALTERNATE: Pepito Manaloto

comedy actor

Best Comedy Actor

  • Jayson Gainza/ Banana Nite/ ABS-CBN 2
  • Michael V. / Bubble Gang / GMA 7
  • Ogie Alcasid / Bubble Gang / GMA 7
  • Pooh/ Banana Split: Extra Scoop/ ABS- CBN 2
  • Robin Padilla/ Toda Max/ ABS-CBN 2
  • Vhong Navarro / Toda Max/ ABS- CBN 2
  • Vic Sotto/ Vampire Ang Daddy Ko / GMA 7

It’s surprising to learn Michael V hasn’t won here yet, since I think he’s the better one of the two Bubble Gang leads. I’m inclined to think Jayson Gainza will finally win this year, maybe because his Ihaw Na schtick is actually funny, but then again I have no idea. I guess I’ll stick with Ogie Alcasid for a final bid for Bubble Gang.

PREDICTION: Ogie Alcasid, Bubble Gang
ALTERNATE: Jayson Gainza, Banana Nite

comedy actress

Best Comedy Actress

  • Alex Gonzaga / Banana Nite/ ABS- CBN 2
  • Angel Locsin/ Toda Max / ABS- CBN 2
  • Angelica Panganiban/ Banana Split: Extra Scoop/ ABS-CBN 2
  • Manilyn Reynes/ Pepito Manoloto / GMA 7
  • Pokwang/ Toda Max/ ABS- CBN 2
  • Rufa Mae Quinto/ Bubble Gang/ GMA 7
  • Ryzza Mae Dizon/ Vampire Ang Daddy Ko / GMA 7

If we’re going by the funniest personality here, I’d say Alex Gonzaga wins this easily. But then again, I think she’s funny in real life as opposed to the gags she play. Last year, Rufa Mae Quinto won her fifth trophy in this category. So they still probably find her funny. Maybe Pokwang wins again this time. I’d love for Ryzza Mae Dizon to win actually. Angel and Angelica are great actresses but they’re not necessarily given funny material to work with. Hmm this one’s a trouble shoot.

PREDICTION: Pokwang, Toda Max
ALTERNATE: Rufa Mae Quinto, Bubble Gang

single performance actor

Best Single Performance by an Actor

  • Baron Geisler /Untold Stories- Walang Hadlang AngBukas / TV5
  • BJ Forbes / MMK-Bulaklak / ABS CBN 2
  • Carlo Aquino /MMK- Pulang Laso / ABS-CBN 2
  • Joem Bascon / MMK-Pulang Laso / ABS- CBN 2
  • Keempee De Leon/ Magpakailanman Presents “Ang Tatay Kong Beki: The Ruben Marasigan Story “/ GMA 7
  • Romnick Sarmenta / MMK-Rosaryo / ABS-CBN 2
  • Zaijan Jaranilla /MMK-Rosaryo /ABS-CBN 2

The single performance categories are hands down my favorites every year, as I think it’s one that keeps on surprising me, and it has actually a great variety of quality performances to choose from. This year proved the same, though I noticed that three of the seven performances played dramatic gay characters. Is 2013 destined to be the year where gay performances in TV is a pinnacle of quality acting? I guess so. Now that I have predicted Dennis Trillo, Tom Rodriguez, and Tirso Cruz III to win, why not extend the love here. I’d say Carlo Aquino wins this one.

PREDICTION: Carlo Aquino, Maalaala Mo Kaya
ALTERNATE: Joem Bascon, Maalala Mo Kaya

single performance actress

 

Best Single Performance by an Actress

  • Ai-Ai de las Alas / MMK- Kulungan / ABS CBN 2
  • Boots Anson Roa/ MMK-Kamison /ABS CBN 2
  • Iza Calzado/ MMK-Ilog/ ABS-CBN 2
  • Jane Oineza / MMK-Bimpo / ABS – CBN 2
  • Krystal Reyes/ Magpakailanman Presents “Batang Ina: The Tintin Ng Story” / GMA 7
  • Nikki Gil / MMK-Ilog / ABS-CBN 2
  • Nora Aunor/ Untold Stories-Tukso Ng Pag-Ibig/TV5

 

This one is a tad more difficult to predict since it offers a wide array of roles and performances, and I can see the PMPC going with any of these performances. So I guess I can just pick a random name from the hat and predict it. After snubbing her last year for her controversial MMK performance, maybe they’d give it to Jane Oineza as a make up award. If not her, I also can see Nora Aunor winning here (as a consolation for her Drama Actress loss), or to Nikki Gil whose acting chops is seriously underestimated. Or maybe Krystal Reyes as the lone flagbearer of GMA wins this one. After all, that has happened before.

PREDICTION: Jane Oineza, Maalaala Mo Kaya
ALTERNATE: Nora Aunor, Untold Stories

child performer

Best Child Performer

  • Andrea Brillantes / Annaliza / ABS CBN 2
  • Izzy Canillo / My Little Juan/ ABS-CBN 2
  • JB Agustin/ Little Champ/ ABS- CBN 2
  • Jillian Ward/ Home Sweet Home/ GMA 7
  • Louise Abuel / Juan Dela Cruz / ABS-CBN 2
  • Xyriel Manabat/ Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw/ ABS- CBN 2
  • Zaijan Jaranilla/ Lorenzo’s Time /ABS-CBN 2

Only in its second year since its inception, I think one clue in predicting here is that the child must play the lead role in the series; otherwise, you have no shot against those who carry their shows. I guess in a process of elimination, Jillian Ward, Louise Abuel, and Xyriel Manabat are eliminated already. As for the other four, I say JB Agustin has the advantage since he’s also nominated for Breakthrough Actor, but his show was shortlived, so if anything, maybe Zaijan Jaranilla wins this with Andrea Brillantes as a spoiler.

PREDICTION: Zaijan Jaranilla, Lorenzo’s Time
ALTERNATE: Andrea Brillantes, Annaliza

new actor

Best New Male TV Personality

  • Akihiro Blanco /Istorifik :Pidols Kwentong Fantastik Presents Robin Dude /TV5
  • JB Agustin / Little Champ / ABS-CBN 2
  • Jerome Ponce /Be Careful With My Heart/ ABS – CBN 2
  • Junjun Quintana/ Tanikala: Liwanag Sa Dapithapon / GMA NEWS TV
  • Mikoy Morales / TeenGen / GMA 7
  • Ruru Madrid / Maynila : Faith In Love / GMA 7
  • Vin Abrenica / Never Say Goodbye / TV5

This category always gives WTF winners for a long time now, so I really have no idea who’ll win here truth be told. Maybe they’ll bring out a tie again like in previous years. But if forced, maybe Jerome Ponce wins this. Love the shoutout to Junjun Quintana though. He’s slowly carving out a name for himself in the acting department. Maybe one of the two interchangeable TV5 actors win this one. Okay I’m gonna go with Aljur’s brother. He seems to fit the prototype of out of the field winners here.

PREDICTION: Vin Abrenica, Never Say Goodbye
ALTERNATE: Jerome Ponce, Be Careful with My Heart

new actress

Best New Female TV Personality

  • Aaliyah Belmoro/ Goin’ Bulilit/ ABS-CBN 2
  • Ashley Sarmiento /Goin’ Bulilit /ABS-CBN 2
  • Gianna Revilla / Teengen / GMA 7
  • Janella Salvador/ Be Careful With My Heart/ ABS-CBN 2
  • Liza Soberano/ Kung Ako’y Iiwan Mo/ ABS- CBN 2
  • Sophie Albert/ Never Say Goodbye/ TV5
  • Thea Tolentino/ Teengen/ GMA 7

Like its counterpart, I also have no idea since I don’t know most of these starlets, though I find both Janella Salvador and Liza Soberano pretty. Is Gianna Revilla related to the Revilla actors clan? I guess if given the chance, I’d vote for Aaliyah Belmoro since she’s the one who does the Doris Bigornia impersonation in Going Bulilit and that gets me going every single time. But they rarely reward child actresses here (not even Xyriel Manabat or Ryzza Mae Dizon won in their respective years), so maybe I’d go with Janella as part of the Be Careful love train.

PREDICTION: Janella Salvador, Be Careful with My Heart
ALTERNATE: Liza Soberano, Kung Ako’y Iiwan Mo
