‘Mara Clara’ is Up Against ‘The Baker King’ in the 2011 Banff World Media Awards

ABS-CBN's top primetime soap "Mara Clara" scores a nomination at the 2011 BANFF World TV Awards, also known as "The Rockies."

The top-rating soap opera of ABS-CBN is competing against “Bread, Love and Dreams” of South Korea which is also known as “The Baker King” in Philippines (currently aired on GMA-7) under the category Soap Operas and Telenovelas. Mara Clara is also up against “Coronation Street” of UK and three soaps from the US: “Days of our Lives”, “Eva Luna” and “The Queen of the South.”

No soap opera/telenovela from any South American country (where popular telenovelas being aired around the world came from) has earned a nomination in the said category. It’s US, UK, South Korea and the Philippines vying in this category.

The winners will be revealed during the awards ceremony on June 12, 2011 at the AOL Canada Theatre.

    I hope na wag na lang manalo ang MARA CLARA at BAKER KING, para walang away. NAKAKATAKOT kasi na kapag NANALO MARA CLARA SUPER MAGYAYABANG NA NAMAN ANG KAPAMILYA FANS, SAME AS YUNG BREAD LOVE and DREAMS (BAKER KING) NG KOREA. Sana U.S na lang manalo! TAPOS

  12. This was the same award-giving body that gave LOBO (Angel Locsin’s TV Series on ABS-CBN) its Best Telenovela Award (30th BANFF World Television Festival)…….sana manalo rin ang Mara Clara.

  13. kapuso ako // April 17, 2011 at 5:17 pm //

    i got your point “hello” i love baker king, and yes! don’t call me koreano a ta kayumanggi ako…ehehe…kung ganyan ang sukatan ng pagka-filipino ay nako, whether you like it or like it, pinoy ako uy! yan nasa birth certificate ko kasi! and walang dahilan para magpalit ng citizenship dahil nasa bagong henerasyon na tayo, wala na tayo sa panahon ng mga kastila…walang entry ang GMA, mas maganda naman tlga kasi ung mara clara tas ung minsan lang kita iibigin ng abs…marami lng cgurong nanood sa GMA pero mas maganda ang primetime ng abs…quality vs quantity xempre sa quality!

  14. buti naman at nagka-aircon na dito sa article na to…ehehe…maganda tlga ang mara clara pero para sa akin mas maganda ang Bread, Love and Dreams ng Korea…and yes…dapat open tayo sa criticism at opinyon ng iba especially kung matino tino naman ung opinyon…ehehe…and uu nga noh,some employers abroad really prefer pinoy workers, kasi nga naniniwala sila na mas importante ang skills kesa sa race…pogi points sa TESDA!
