The International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (IATAS) gave the Philippines 3 slots to vie for in the 37th International Emmy Awards on November 23. Angel Locsin bagged the much-coveted best actress nomination for her performance in “Lobo” (The Wolf). While 2 TV soaps from the Philippines are vying for the best telenovela category, these are ABS-CBN's "Kahit Isang Saglit" and GMA's "Magdusa Ka".
Angel Locsin will be competing against Emma De Caunes ("Night Birds," CHEZ WAM, France), Cecilia Suarez ("Capadocia," HBO Latin America Originals, Mexico), and Julie Walters ("A Short Stay in Switzerland", BBC, United Kingdom). "Kahit Isang Saglit" is a co-production of ABS-CBN and Malaysia's Double Vision SDN BHD, which paired Jericho Rosales and Carmen Soo. “Magdusa Ka” starred the controversial Katrina Halili and Dennis Trillo. Good luck to the three nominees and we hope you will bring home the bacon! Here is the Complete List of the 2009 International Emmy Nominees.
