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.
