SEVERAL TV personalities were recognized during the 31st Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC) Star Awards for Television last November 12, Sunday, at Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU). Some stars tied for certain categories.
These included the Best Drama Actor award which was won by two actors from GMA Network–Ruru Madrid for “Encantadia” and Kapuso Primetime King Dingdong Dantes for “Alyas Robin Hood.”
Madrid, on his Instagram account, thanked God, his family, supporters and the PMPC for the recognition.
“Mahal na mahal ko kayo wala ako sa kinatatayuan ko kung hindi dahil sa inyo,” read part of his post. He also thanked the people behind “Encantadia” including director Mark Reyes.
Also tied for the Best Single Performance by an Actor award were Alden Richards who portrayed a guy with autism in Eat Bulaga’s Lenten presentation, “Kapatid” and John Estrada who was cited for his role in the Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK) episode, “Mansanas at Juice.”
