“Wansapanataym: Candy's Crush” is the only PH Program Nominated at International Emmy Kids Awards

“Wansapanataym,” a TV series that imparts valuable lessons and promotes good values to viewers, bagged a nomination for best TV movie/mini-series category in the 2017 International Emmy Kids Awards and the only Philippine TV show that made it to the prestigious award-giving body.

The show earned its nomination for its “Candy’s Crush” episode, which starred Loisa Andalio and Jerome Ponce. It revolved around the life of Candy (Loisa), a young lady who got punished after using a magic potion to make the campus heartthrob Paolo (Jerome) fall in love with her. It was directed by Andoy Ranay and aired in June 2016.

It will be competing against Netherlands’ “Alleen op de Wereld (Nobody's Boy),” United Kingdom’s “Hank Zipzer's Christmas Catastrophe,” and Australia’s “Little Lunch.” The awards show will take place on April 18, 2018.

Aside from “Wansapantaym,” “TV Patrol” also received a nomination and finished as a finalist at the 2017 International Emmy Awards for news and current affairs last October 5.

Kapamilya actor Zanjoe Marudo was also recently nominated at the award-giving body in the top male acting honor category for his notable performance in “MMK,” where he portrayed a father who single-handedly raised his child while living inside a cave.

ABS-CBN previously scored International Emmy Awards nominations for Jodi Sta. Maria (“Pangako Sa ‘Yo”) and “Bridges of Love” in 2016, “Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Impostor” (Best Telenovela) in 2011, “Dahil May Isang Ikaw” (Best Telenovela) and Sid Lucero in “Dahil May Isang Ikaw” (Best Actor) in 2010, and “Kahit Isang Saglit” (Best Telenovela) and Angel Locsin in “Lobo” (Best Actress) in 2009.

It is also not the first time that ABS-CBN bagged a nomination in the news category. In 2011, “TV Patrol” received its first Emmy medal for its coverage of the Luneta hostage crisis in August 2010. Its weekend edition was also nominated in 2013 for its coverage during the super typhoon Haiyan.

Another ABS-CBN news and current affairs program, “Bandila” nabbed the Philippine’s first nomination in International Emmys for its report on the Subic rape case in 2006.

Meanwhile, “Wansapanataym” continues to bring values-laden stories with its current series “Louie’s Biton.” After experiencing the life of his idol Ralph (Aljur Abrenica) with the help of the magic shoe shiner, Louie (Grae Fernandez) now takes on the life of Melissa (Louise Delos Reyes) to fix the mistakes he made using her body.

Will Louie succeed with his plans now that he is on Melissa’s body?

Catch the magical stories filled with valuable lessons in “Wansapanataym Presents: Louie’s Biton” this Sunday on ABS-CBN and ABS-CBN HD (SkyCable ch 167). For more information, go to fb.com/dreamscapeph and follow @dreamscapeph on Twitter and Instagram.

Meet the Iconic DC All-Stars in "Justice League"

After fighting side-by-side across decades of comics, the iconic DC all-stars are going all in to save the world in their first-ever big-screen team-up, Warner Bros. Pictures’ epic action adventure Justice League, hitting Philippine cinemas November 16.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder from a screenplay by Chris Terrio and Joss Whedon, story by Chris Terrio & Zack Snyder, based on characters from DC, Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The film’s producers are Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns, with executive producers Jim Rowe, Wesley Coller, Curtis Kanemoto, Chris Terrio and Ben Affleck.

Conceived by comic book writer Gardner Fox and artist Mike Sekowsky, the original incarnation of DC’s legendary League of Heroes – the Justice League of America – teamed up for the first time in 1960 on the pages of The Brave and the Bold #28.


Batman / Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). Inspired by Superman’s sacrifice, the billionaire detective is putting together a team of Super Heroes to combat a force threatening the entire planet. For the first time, Batman understands that he, alone, cannot save the world.

Wonder Woman / Diana Prince (Gal Gadot). The world’s first and foremost female Super Hero, Wonder Woman embodies the unrivaled force and grace of a born warrior with the genuine compassion of a true humanitarian. The first to joinBruce Wayne’s team, Diana’s natural confidence and unmistakable intelligence make her an indispensable ally.

Aquaman / Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa). Half-human, half-Atlantean, Arthur Curry is an outsider who does not feel at home on the Earth’s surface or under the sea. That is, until the world is threatened and he joins Batman’s newly assembled team of heroes.

The Flash / Barry Allen (Ezra Miller). Barry Allen is an excessively energetic student attending Central City College, where he studies criminal justice with the hope of one day freeing his incarcerated father. More than eager to team up with crime fighting icon Batman, Barry’s remarkably quick wit is surpassed only by his ability to move at hyper-speed.

Cyborg / Victor Stone (Ray Fisher). Part man, part machine, Victor Stone is a former star athlete at Gotham City University. After a horrific accident nearly cost him his life, he was saved when his father, scientist Silas Stone, used alien technology to reconstruct his body. In the process, Silas turned Victor into a human computer, organic with biomechatronic body parts. In other words, a Cyborg.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents an Atlas Entertainment/Cruel and Unusual Production, a Zack Snyder Film, Justice League. The film will be released in 3D and 2D in select theaters and IMAX worldwide beginning November 16, 2017, by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. justiceleaguethemovie.net

Nicole Scherzinger Walks Out After Pinoy Boyband JBK Failed to Enter the X Factor UK Judges' House Round

JBK, a trio composed of Joshua Bulot, Bryan del Rosario, and Kim Lawrenz Ordonio, is the first Filipino boyband who made it to the show.

During their room auditions, the judges were all impressed not only with their vocals but also with their dedication flying all the way from the Philippines.

The boyband’s cheesy rendition of “I’ll Make Love To You” was well received by the audience and the judges, especially when the high notes were hit on spot.

Wow, guys! You’ve got a great reaction on that song, your vocals are great, I just think it’s a no-brainer with you guys.” Said judge Sharon Osbourne after the group’s performance.

Nicole Scherzinger gave nothing but praises to the group. “JBK, I’m so proud of you boys, my Filipino brothers up there! I’m proud that you flew all the way from the Philippines ‘coz you are not flying back home!

The crowd then chanted for Simon Cowell to give the group a seat.

Before Simon made a decision, judge Louis Walsh told him that the group absolutely deserve a seat.

To which he responded that he made up his mind. “You are not gonna be disappointed, you’re gonna have a seat!

The trio, who was anxiously waiting for Simon’s decision, curled up in great shock and was almost in tears after hearing what he said. Judges Louis and Nicole were both very happy with them getting a seat. The duo Afro Swagg was asked to give up their seat for JBK.

Later on, Simon asked JBK and girl group Lemonade for a sing-off, which was apparent that Nicole Scherzinger was against.

After the JBK’s performance of “I Can Love You Like That”, originally by the group All-4-One,  they received a standing ovation from Nicole, Sharon and Louis. Even after the Lemonade’s performance, Louis Walsh kept on telling Simon to pick the boys. “JBK, they have to go through!” he added.

After choosing the girl group Lemonade, the crowd booed Simon Cowell, and Nicole Scherzinger stood up from her seat, walked out, and told him not to talk to her.

The X Factor UK airs first and exclusive on RTL CBS Entertainment same day as the UK on Sundays and Mondays at 10:30am with primetime encores Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays at 9:00pm. 

RTL CBS Entertainment is available on SKYcable channels 53(SD) and 196(HD), SKYdirect channel 35, Destiny Cable channel 53, and Cablelink channels 37(SD) and 313(HD).
