12 Reasons Why Yahoo! OMG! Philippines Awards is Oh! My Gawd!

Purple exclamation marks, celebrities, models, media personalities and spectators filled up the whole Republiq Bar last Tuesday, June 21, for the much-awaited Philippines Yahoo! OMG! Awards.

Yahoo! OMG!, one of the most visited celebrity and showbiz websites in the Philippines, awarded the hottest and the most popular celebrities in the country via popular voting.

That night, we have had the privilege to be invited to witness the event and to mingle at the VIP area along with the celebrities themselves and here is the latest scoop that we have gathered from the “purple carpet” awards night.

1.    Alodia Gosiengfiao

Posing like a doll is the Pinay cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao who we spotted doing a live blog and interview of the celebrities who are present in the event. That night, she won an award from Sunsilk because of her long black hair.
2.    Bea Binene and Jake Vargas

Spotted at the entrance is the Kapuso young love team, Bea Binene and Jake Vargas. Who would have thought Bea will grow up that fast? She was just a little chubby girl when we first saw her on TV. They said that Bea is currently studying martial arts to prepare herself for her dream to become a lady action star.

3.    Jojo A.

Why would our eyes not catch him? It’s Mr. All the Way himself, Jojo A! We spotted him playing with one of the table top displays created by Yahoo!

4.    Pepe Smith

That moment I saw the legend, Pepe Smith, I almost blurted out, Rock and Roll! Who wouldn’t? This man is Rock and Roll turned into flesh!

5.    Sam Concepcion

We liked Sam’s closing performance that night. Even if it’s already 11:00pm he made it feel as if the night had just started. Sam was nominated as Awesome Young Actor.

6.    Albie Casiño and Kathryn Bernardo

Every night, I only see them on TV. During the Yahoo! OMG! Awards I saw them all in flesh. I even asked them to pose for a picture. Albie and Kathryn won the Awesome Young Actor and Awesome Young Actress Awards, respectively. ♫ Mara…Clara…

Philippines had voted wisely when Ms. Eugene Domingo herself bagged the Funniest Comedienne award that night. “Ang ganda ko!” the comedienne squealed the moment the award was handed to her and saw her glowing face on the screen! The audience just couldn’t help but laugh. She was indeed, the funniest comedienne in the Philippines.

9.    Vice Ganda

Whoa! We weren’t surprised that Vice Ganda bagged the Funniest Comedian award but we couldn’t help but to get starstruck-ed when he was actually there to receive the award and thank all those who voted for him despite his very busy schedule. His upcoming concert is all set this July 1 at the Araneta Coliseum.
