'Mara Clara' is Nominated at the 2011 BANFF World TV Awards!

The top-rating Primetime TV series "Mara Clara" is nominated at the 2011 BANFF World TV Awards or known as The Rockies.

The so-called 'Ina ng Pinoy Teleserye' is in the running under the Best Soap Operas and Telenovelas category, along with 5 other nominees from other countries.

"Mara Clara" is competing against "Bread, Love and Dreams" also known as "The Baker King" of South Korea, "Coronation Street" of UK and three soaps from the US: "Days of our Lives", "Eva Luna" and "The Queen of the South." "The Baker King" is currently airing in GMA-7's Telebabad block. Hmmm...it seems that even in this award category, "Mara Clara" and "The Baker King" is in the tight fight!

It's also good to note that "Mara Clara" is the only nominee from the Philippines on the 2011 Banff World Television Awards or The Rockies! Nice!

Based on the reports, the Philippines is also one of the only 4 Asian countries who earned a nomination in The Rockies 2011, which has nominees mostly from the US and Canada. The 3 other Asian countries who received at least 1 nomination are South Korea, Japan and Hong Kong.

The Banff World TV Awards has 3 divisions, THE FICTION ROCKIES, THE NON-FICTION ROCKIES and THE INTERACTIVE ROCKIES, whose awarding ceremonies will be held in 3 separate dates. "Mara Clara" falls under "The Fiction Rockies" which recognizes the very best in scripted television programming from around the world. And the awarding ceremony for The Fiction Rockies will be held on June 12, 2011 at the AOL Canada Theatre.

Great one "Mara Clara"! It seems that this hit TV series is now conquering the world! Another proof of its success! Best wishes to Kathryn Bernardo, Julia Montes, Albie Casiño, John Manalo, Diego Loyzaga, and to the rest of the cast and crews! Two thumbs up! c",)
