ABS-CBN Corporation once again received honors from the International Emmy® Awards as Kapamilya actress Jodi Sta. Maria and ABS-CBN teleserye “Bridges of Love” picked up nominations at this year’s prestigious competition.
Jodi was recognized for her outstanding performance as Amor Powers in the 2015 remake of “Pangako Sa ‘Yo” and is nominated in the Best Performance by an Actress category against Judi Dench (United Kingdom), Grazi Massafera (Brazil), and Christiane Paul (Germany).
“Bridges of Love,” meanwhile, will be competing in the Best Telenovela category alongside telenovelas from Canada and Brazil. The series shares the tale of two brothers, Gael (Jericho Rosales) and Carlos (Paulo Avelino), who were bound by their promise to each other, separated by an unfortunate tragedy, and bridged together by love embodied by only one woman — the vivacious club dancer Mia (Maja Salvador).
“Bridges of Love” was the first Filipino series to air in the Latin American region, particularly in Peru via PanAmericana. It is followed by “Pangako Sa’yo,” which is currently airing in the said Peruvian TV channel. Aside from Peru, both series already aired in different countries in Asia and Africa.
Jodi and “Bridges of Love” are the only nominees that come from the Philippines among the 40 nominees across ten categories and 15 countries in this year’s awards.
Last year, ABS-CBN chief content officer Charo Santos-Concio was chosen as the Gala Chair for the 43rd International Emmy® Awards and opened the gala before the world’s best producers, creatives, and talents. She is the first Filipino Gala Chair invited to participate in the prestigious event.
ABS-CBN previously scored International Emmy® Awards nominations for “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.
This year’s winners will be announced at a black-tie ceremony on November 21 at the Hilton New York Hotel. The International Emmy® Awards are given by the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

JODI STA. MARIA AT “BRIDGES OF LOVE,” NOMINADO SA 2016 INTERNATIONAL EMMY’S
Muli na namang kinilala ang ABS-CBN Corporation sa International Emmy® Awards dahil nakakuha ng nominasyon ang Kapamilya actress na si Jodi Sta. Maria at ang teleseryeng “Bridges of Love” para lumaban sa prestihiyosong kumpetisyon ngayong taon.
Tumanggap ng nominasyon sii Jodi para sa kanyang natatanging pagganap bilang si Amor Powers sa 2015 remake ng “Pangako Sa ‘Yo.” Lalaban siya sa Best Performance by an Actress category kasama sina Judi Dench (United Kingdom), Grazi Massafera (Brazil), at Christiane Paul (Germany).
Samantala, makikipagtunggalian naman ang “Bridges of Love” sa Best Telenovela category sa mga telenovela mula sa Canada at Brazil. Ang “Bridges of Love” ay tungkol sa malalim na ugnayan ng magkapatid na sina Gael (Jericho Rosales) at JR (Paulo Avelino), na pagbubuklurin ng pangako nila sa isa’t isa, paglalayuin ng isang malagim na trahedya, ngunit pag-uugnayin ng iisang babae— ang club dancer na si Mia (Maja Salvador).
Ito ang ang pinakaunang Filipino drama na ipinalabas sa Latin American region, partikular sa bansang Peru, via PanAmericana. Sinundan ito ng “Pangako Sa’yo” remake nina Jodi na kasalukuyang napapanood sa nasabing Peruvian TV channel. Bukod sa Peru, naipalabas na rin ang dalawang titulo sa iba’t ibang bansa sa Asya at Africa.
Tanging si Jodi at ang “Bridges of Love” lang mula Pilipinas ang nakasama sa 40 nominees na kinilala sa sampung kategorya at 15 bansa sa International Emmy® Awards ngayong taon.
Noong nakaraang taon, napili si ABS-CBN chief content officer Charo Santos-Concio bilang Gala Chair ng 43rd International Emmy® Awards kung saan pormal niyang binuksan ang gala sa pamamagitan ng isang talumpati kaharap ang pinakamahuhusay na producers, creatives, at talents mula sa iba’t ibang panig ng mundo. Siya ang pinakaunang Filipino Gala Chair na naimbitahan sa prestihiyosong event.
