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!
