Now on its 11TH Edition, our very own TV Series Craze Awards gives recognition to the best of the best and trending celebrities, TV series, love teams, and topics of the year that was.

For the year 2020, TV Series Craze remains strong and kicking amidst of the pandemic. This year, we are giving awards and recognition not only to the traditional TV programs and celebrities, but to the modern online shows and social media personalities. The addition of the BL (Boys Love) both local and international and TikTok makes our 11TH TV Series Craze Awards 2020 standout from the previous!

Who do you think wins the most on 2020?! 

The Chinita Princess Kim Chiu is hailed as the queen of awards for this year! Aside from leading in two different series in the Kapamilya network namely the "Love Thy Woman" and "Bawal Lumabas" (The Series) and in the horror movie "U Turn," Kim was also the top trending topic worldwide in 2020 because of her viral video dubbed as "Bawal Lumabas" wherein she aired her feelings and emotions regarding the franchise denial of ABS-CBN. Her words, her speech in the said video became a viral TikTok challenge and dance which eventually became a record-breaking song of Kim  released by Star Records. No doubt why Kim bagged the Lead Actress of the Year award for 2020! Of course, her very own "Bawal Lumabas" also received one of our Special Awards for the year which is the Top Trend of 2020.    

Related to Kim is of course her top-rating teleserye "Love Thy Woman" which hailed as one of our Best Daytime TV Series of 2020.  The series which both aired in ABS-CBN and iWantTFC always trended on the worldwide web in addition to being the No. 1 Top program of the Kapamilya network in their digital platforms during its airing days. Aside from its good story flow about family and unexpected twist in the end of the series, "Love Thy Woman" also got a powerhouse cast composed of great actors in the industry both veterans and newbies. Christopher De Leon, Eula Valdez, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Mari Kaimo, Sunshine Cruz, Ruffa Gutierrez, and Aurora Yumul to name few in the veteran casts with superb acting! Of course, the fictional characters of Adam Wong, Lucy Wong, Dana Wong, Jia Wong, and the ever trending feng shui master Kong Lin (Aurora Yumul) turn remarkable in the series. Yam Concepcion who played as the antagonist half-sister of Kim, Dana Wong grabbed then our Kontrabida of the Year award.

Tied with "Love Thy Woman" as the Best in Daytime TV Series is the GMA-7's now longest running teleserye, "Prima Donnas."  The said TV series remains to be as the most talked-about series of the Kapuso network not only because of the trending catfights and confrontation scenes of the lead casts but also because of the effectiveness of the villain Kendra (Aiko Melendez) and of the former most-hatred Kapuso kontrabida turned bida and mabait Katrina Halili.   

Aside from "Prima Donnas," Kapuso network also bagged major awards such as the Lead Actor of the Year award for the Primetime King Dingdong Dantes. His comeback TV series in GMA Telebabad which is the "Descendants of the Sun" also bagged our Best TV Series Remake/Adaptation award once more proving that GMA network is great in doing TV adaptations. You may recall that in this category of our previous editions, the GMA TV series always won! Even the previous winner, the "Encantadia" 2016 also bagged one of our Special Awards as the Most Watched TV Series Rerun.   

Let's watch the video presentation of the winners. Here it goes:

In terms of the Primetime TV series, the currently airing Kapamilya teleserye "Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin" starring Iza Calzado and Jodi Sta. Maria received two major awards - the Best Primetime TV Series and the Overall Best TV Series of 2020. Definitely no explanation needed. And in relation to this series, the young leads of the show namely Kira Balinger and Grae Fernandez who are playing the characters of Hope and Jake hailed as the Most Promising Loveteam of the Year.

 BL or the so-called Boys Love Series also dominated our awards for 2020. For the Special Awards, the Thai heartthrobs BL couple Bright Vachirawit and Win Metawin or BrightWin bagged our Phenomenal International (Thai) BL Couple award after playing the iconic characters of Sarawat and Tine. In addition to this, their phenomenal top hit BL Series which took the country by storm, the "2Gether The Series" snatched our International (Thai) BL Series of the Year award.  

Of course our own local entertainment industry joined the BL bandwagon. We also produced quality and top-trending PH or Pinoy BL Series such as "Gaya Sa Pelikula" from Globe Studios; "Ben X Jim" from Regal Films; and "Gameboys" from Ideal First where all of them received our PH BL Series of the Year award. The lead actors of these said Pinoy BL series were also competitive! They also won special awards! Ian Pangilinan and Paolo Pangilinan better known as PangPang or Pancakes from "Gaya Sa Pelikula" snatched our Phenomenal PH BL Couple award. The "Gameboys" stars namely Kokoy De Santos and Elijah Canlas on the other hand won separate awards namely the Breakthrough Artist of the Year for Kokoy and the Most Promising Actor of the Year for Elijah respectively!

Last December 3, Paradise Rising artists Kiana V, Fern, Jason Dhakal, Massiah, and Leila Alcasid performed alongside 88rising artists and other global acts on the Double Happiness Winter Wonder Festival featured on Globe Virtual Hangouts. This is the inaugural event of the newest concert platform that aims to showcase the best of Asian talents, Eastern Standard Time.

In line with this, Virtual Hangouts invited Kiana V for an exclusive Double Happiness Festival online meet and greet where she shared how the experience perform

ing in the online fest was plus some never before told stories about her hit songs. Lucky fans also got to ask her their personal questions and even received surprise giveaways!

About performing in the Double Happiness Winter Wonder Festival
Kiana described the experience as “thrilling” especially having to work with an amazing crew for the show. “I hadn’t performed outside of my bedroom for a very long time. It kinda made me a little anxious at the start knowing that I’ll be in front of a professional crew where I have to get all dressed up and perform for more than just my camera,” she added. “I’m excited for this crazy pandemic to blow over, because it’s really so much fun to work with different people and that was what I enjoyed the most.”

To get ready for her performance, Kiana had to go back to doing her vocal exercises religiously and mentally prepare herself. “It was really a lot of mental preparation that went into it, reminding myself that ‘it’s back to work’ and being open to collaboration and feedback.”

Stories behind the hits
During the meet and greet, Kiana played a little game of spin the wheel with the host  where she had to share a trivia or a fun fact behind each song that the wheel will land on. Here’s some of our favorites:

Corners started as poetry that Kiana wrote while on a flight to Malaysia. Eventually, she found herself in California with some friends where she started singing the then poem over music. “It just fit so well so we decided that we’re going to work together and make it a full song.”

When it comes to her collaboration with Filipino-Aussie artist and producer Billy Davis, No Rush, Kiana originally envisioned to be an ethereal, RnB ballad type of song, but after working on it with Billy in the studio, it had turned out to be the upbeat and danceable track that we all love. She noted that this is one of the things that she loves about working with producers in the studio, because you’ll never know where they will take you.

On the shooting of the Safe Place music video, Kiana shared that despite it being a crazy and worrisome time in California due to the rising COVID-19 cases, the 88rising and Paradise Rising teams were so collaborative and quick to send inspiration and moodboards. The play on different fabrics as seen on the video is the director’s idea to convey how something so beautiful can also be suffocating. It’s thinking that you have found your safe place but in the end, it’s not as safe as you think.

What’s next for Kiana V?
2021 is going to be a good year for all fans of Kiana, because according to her, she will be releasing “lots of new music” of the year to come. No details yet but be sure to always be on the lookout on her social media pages!

Unlike before, we cannot just head to the mall to stroll, shop, or watch movies at the cinemas whenever we feel bored at home. As a matter of fact, our homes have now become a place for everything including entertainment. Streaming platforms redefined the way content is consumed and Netflix has become a household name for its wide breadth of movies, series, documentaries, and original content that anyone can pull up anytime they feel the need to relax and unwind.

This is why getting yourself a Netflix subscription is one of the most worthwhile purchases you can make nowadays. With all the time we are spending at home, watching movies and series is one way to gain inspiration to pursue and discover new passions like taking on your business dreams with the hit Korean series Start-Up or rehashing your chess-playing skills with The Queen’s Gambit! Already done with these? Here’s a tip: whenever you can’t decide what to watch, or feel like you’ve already watched it all, create a list of your must-watch titles on Netflix and exchange them with your friends. Who knows, you might just discover your next favorite thing!

Whether you are on the go or staying at home, you can stream a whole ton of movies and series uninterrupted (no ads!) and in HD with Netflix’s flexible plans. The Mobile plan is perfect for those who do not want to miss an episode of their favorite shows, while the Premium plan is best for families since it allows streams across four devices.

And with Globe, your Netflix experience is made even more convenient since you can charge your subscription to your Globe Postpaid or Globe At Home Postpaid bill. You can also choose and change your subscription plans anytime depending on what best fits your viewing needs.

“In a time where streaming films and movies have become some sort of a repose for most of us, Globe and Netflix make world class entertainment more accessible to viewers by providing an easier way to pay for their subscription even without a credit card,” said Griselda Bausa-Go, Vice President of Globe's Get Entertained Tribe. “With this, we also aim to encourage Filipinos to watch their favorite shows and movies through legitimate platforms like Netflix.”

Globe Postpaid customers can easily subscribe to Netflix via the GlobeOne App while Globe At Home customers can charge their subscription to their plan to enjoy next-level entertainment in the comfort of your home. For a worry-free viewing experience, you can register to the GoWATCH10 and GoKOREAN10 data add ons with any Go promo of Globe Prepaid, and HomeWATCH199 for Home Prepaid Wifi for additional 4GB for video apps such as Netflix.

With Christmas around the corner, families are already making holiday plans. The pandemic has prohibited us from gathering in large crowds, so we will likely spend the Christmas season at home. Thankfully, the internet has made it possible for us to see and experience the world outside even if we’re indoors.

One of the best ways to spend a holiday  weekend is to watch great movies. Globe is recreating the cinema experience with GMovies through its partnership with video on demand (VOD) platform UPSTREAM. Now, you can stream new and classic movies, both local and foreign titles,  from the comfort of your home.

Here’s how to  make your family’s holiday bonding more special with GMovies and UPSTREAM:

1.    Set up a cozy space. An advantage of having movie night at home is that you can design your space the way you want it. Work with what you have, whether it’s a bed, a couch, or a laptop to screen your films. Make it cozy by having a warm blanket, lots of pillows, and enough space to get comfortable. 

2.    Prepare snacks. What would movie night be without snacks? Recreate the cinema by microwaving some popcorn (with extra butter, of course), or create a grazing spread with all your favorite snacks. Make it fancy with some cheese and cold cuts, or keep it casual with your favorite chips, nachos, and soda.

3.    Fun activities between movies. A movie marathon can be long and you’ll want time to stretch your legs and move around in between films. Use the time to bond with your family by having fun activities, like a board or card game, a chance to cook some snacks or refill drinks, or just sit around and talk about the last movie you watched.

4.    Watch classic Filipino films. The Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) is a much-awaited annual cinematic event, made even more special this year by a pre-festival retrospective to be mounted byGMovies and UPSTREAM. MMFF has always been diverse with their offerings, so the pre-game will have movies for everyone. Comedy fans will love Die Beautiful (2016) and Enteng Kabisote: Okay Ka Fairy Ko... The Legend (2004), while those who love rom-coms can stream English Only, Please (2014). For horror fans, there’s Shake, Rattle & Roll 2K5 (2005), The Echo or Sigaw (2004), and Spirit Warriors (2000). The MMFF retrospective runs from December 7 to 24.

5.    Welcome Christmas with the MMFF. This year’s MMFF will welcome Christmas yet again on December 25. This year’s lineup includes interesting titles, such as Antoinette Jadaone’s Fan Girl, which premiered at the Tokyo International Film Festival; the rom-com and boy’s love film The Boy Foretold by the Stars; and Magikland, a big-budget sci-fi movie directed by the late Peque Gallaga.

To get movie night started, families can simply visit the GMovies website, select the movie they want to watch, and pay via GCash or debit or credit card. Make bonding time with the family more special during the holidays with a movie marathon with GMovies and UPSTREAM!

Christmas is the most awaited season for most Filipinos, especially children, but the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed the way the upcoming holidays will be celebrated—it’s going digital!

Save the Children Philippines is launching eSave Natin ang Pasko, an online fundraising campaign that encourages everyone to unite in saving the Christmas spirit through a series of joyous and meaningful activities to provide joy and hope to children. These include 22 million learners, who have been experiencing major challenges such as the lack of access to learning materials and internet connection, as they struggle to learn from home.  

The proceeds of the Christmas fundraising campaign will support the learning needs of children in poor households in Metro Manila, typhoon-stricken places in Eastern Visayas, and the conflict-affected areas in Mindanao. It will also support children with disabilities, those from indigenous communities and from hard to reach areas.

“Even if classes are conducted through distance learning or will resume via face-to-face, millions of children will still need our support as they continue to be deprived of their right to education since their families do not have the means to support their learning needs,” said Atty. Alberto Muyot, Chief Executive Officer of Save the Children Philippines.

eSave Natin ang Pasko also promotes the importance of a nurturing home through the “Mapagkalingang Tahanan” advocacy – where every member of the family, especially children, receives the support they need so they learn, survive, and are protected.

“Mapagkalingang Tahanan” emphasizes the critical role of parents, guardians, and caregivers in the continued learning of children and aims to provide them the knowledge and skills to facilitate their children’s learning.

Also, in keeping with the tradition of Christmas caroling, eSave Natin ang Pasko features “Namamasko po!” – a fun group activity by schools, families, and companies showcasing their musical talent and creativity.

eSave Natin ang Pasko will be highlighted by a digital concert entitled “Awit Para Sa Mga Bata” on December 18 where Gary Valenciano, Lea Salonga, Martin Nievera, Regine Velasquez Alcasid, Ogie Alcasid, Arnel Pineda, Bamboo, Gian Magdangal, Lara Maigue, Kayla Rivera and Sam Shoaf will serenade the audience in the Philippines and those living abroad with Christmas songs. The digital concert will be produced by prominent theater artists Menchu Lauchengco Yulo and Michael Williams, together with Save the Children Philippines’ Bianca Elizalde. Catch Awit para sa mga Bata online on December 18, 2020, starting at 7pm. If you can’t catch the concert live, the video link will be active until December 19, 2020.

To watch the concert, make a donation through  Each ticket is P800. Your donation will provide one family with a Family Learning Kit to help children learn during the pandemic.

Donors and participants who will pledge their support to eSave Natin ang Pasko will receive tokens of appreciation and a chance to be featured on the social media pages of Save the Children and its Ambassadors Katarina Rodriguez, Xia Vigor, and Ria Atayde.

“Education empowers children especially those in dire situations, and supporting their learning needs will save their lives and their future,” said Muyot.

If GMA has its own GMA Telebabad and ABS-CBN has its Primetime Bida, TV5 on the other hand has very own Primetime Todo with a powerful lineup of new TV series and TV shows with different genres!   

This year is indeed a year of TV5! They started the BER months with a blast! And just this November, their surprise to the viewers never stop! They are now one of the biggest and the most powerful TV networks in terms of giving us quality TV shows to enjoy with!   

And just this week, we had a grand mediacon revealing the newest TV programs which are part of this huge Primetime Todo block!

Let me share with you first my live video coverage of our mediacon including my virtual interview to the casts of one of their TV shows. Here they go: 

 The Live MediaCon Coverage:

 The Casts Interview:


Now, let's get to know the details of these new TV series and TV shows of TV5's much anticipated Primetime Todo. Here they go:

TV5, through its partnership with Cignal TV, will dominate your primetime evenings and bring an influx of fresh and familiar stars as they launch the newest lineup of teleseryes starting this Monday, November 23. Cignal Entertainment, the film and television production arm of Cignal TV, has commissioned Archangel Media to bring Ate ng Ate Ko & Carpool, Cornerstone Entertainment for Stay-in Love, and Viva Entertainment to bring Bella Bandida and Kagat ng Dilim.

Through Cignal Entertainment, TV5 continues to live up to its promise of inspiring and empowering its Filipino viewers with original and remarkable content; offering a wave of new programs ranging from drama, romance, action and suspense. They are likewise, introducing an alternative way that viewers can enjoy their programs through their 9:30 PM primetime block, PRIMETIME TODO.

Now, viewers can enjoy once-a-week series in a variety of genres delivered from Monday-Friday. The PRIMETIME TODO block brings five (5) new shows that will give the viewers  a variety of exciting stories to fill their weekday evenings with, namely: Ate Ng Ate Ko (Monday), Stay In Love (Tuesday), Bella Bandida (Wednesday), Carpool (Thursday), and Kagat ng Dilim (Friday).

Undoubtedly, quality entertainment is at the heart of TV5’s core mission as they continue to provide opportunities for people in the entertainment industry and more meaningful reasons to come together, offering viewers access to a wide array of programs.

Popular actors Kris Bernal and Isabelle de Leon make their return on screen as they star in the newest weekly primetime series, Ate ng Ate Ko, alongside Jake Cuenca, Tonton Gutierrez, Joem Bascon, Kim Last, and Phil Noble. The show boasts a dramatic yet cryptic narrative of two sisters whose differences get in the way of their loving relationship. A mysterious incident causes the sisters to switch roles. The story also tackles a psychological condition called ‘dissociative fugue’ which is a rare form of amnesia wherein one loses awareness of their identity or other important personal information. The pilot episode is set to premiere this November 23 and will air every Monday at 9:30 PM on TV5.

Next on TV5’s slew of fresh primetime teleserye is the romantic comedy that will make viewers swoon with excitement. Stay-in Love follows the journey of a young and charming lady, played by Maris Racal, whose dream is to become a maid. As the story unfolds, the audience will be introduced to more characters; all scrambling to get their lives in order and find answers to their troubles. Joining Maris Racal and Ruffa Gutierrez in this light-hearted rom-com are Bobby Andrews, Pooh, Marc David, and breakout artist Kokoy de Santos. Stay-in Love is set to launch this November 24 and will air on TV5 every Tuesday at 9:30 PM.

From the producers of action-packed women starrers “Buy Bust” and “Maria” comes Bella Bandida, an action-drama series loosely based on the classic comic book by National Artist Francisco V. Coching.  The series is headlined by Ryza Cenon as Bella Banida, an idealistic doctor who inherits mystical powers and uses them to fight injustice and avenge a heinous crime inflicted upon her by a gang of ruthless men.  This series will showcase a different kind of female power.  Premiering this November 25 on TV5, it will air every Wednesday at 9:30 PM.

Carpool is the newest suspense thriller series which will tackle the lives of four young individuals portrayed by Sarah Carlos, Alex Diaz, Kate Lapuz, and Kenneth Medrano. The series starts with the four sharing a carpool ride together, that leads them to a whirlwind of tragedy and horrific hauntings that will continue to follow them. The mysteries of Carpool further unravel as a former classmate, portrayed by Elora Espano, is suspected to be behind the events that haunt the four passengers. What is mind boggling though, is that, the said suspect that continues to torment them is already dead. Viewers can catch Carpool on TV5 starting November 26 and will air every Thursday at 9:30 PM.


Kagat ng Dilim, is the 2020 evolution of the horror anthology series in the early 2000s.  This time, four of the most talented, young and well-known directors of the genre were enlisted to craft 13 episodes of terrifying tales that have haunted the minds of Filipinos.
