“This moment is a proof that dreams do come true.”
This is how actress Jodi Sta. Maria described her nomination in the Best Performance by an Actress category at this year’s International Emmy Awards.
In her short speech during the iEmmys Nominee Medal Ceremony, Sta. Maria also thanked the iEmmys for the recognition, as well as ABS-CBN, Star Creatives, Star Magic, and her family for their understanding and support.
Jodi, along with Star Creatives business unit head Des Tanwangco and creative manager Henry Quitain who are representing the program Bridges of Love for the Best Telenovela nomination attended various iEmmy’s events and the gala on Monday at the Hilton New York Hotel.
Aside from the Nominee Medal Ceremony, Sta. Maria also sat down at the Nominee Panel Ceremony recently where she talked about her role as Amor Powers in Pangako Sa ’Yo alongside other Best Actor and Best Actress nominees.
Tanwangco and Quitain also attended the Telenovela Panel Ceremony and discussed the story of Bridges of Love.
Apart from Sta. Maria, Tanwangco, and Quitain, the country is also represented by ABS-CBN chief content officer Charo Santos-Concio, who graced last year’s iEmmys as gala chair, and ABS-CBN Integrated Program Acquisitions and International Sales and Distribution head Leng Raymundo, who served as one of the jurors.
