People...are talking about

Sarah Geronimo

With her latest nomination at MTV Europe Music Awards, in the Best Southeast Asian Act category, Sarah G has proven once more that she’s the brightest recording star of her generation. In 2013, she was nominated in the same category and finally won the coveted award in 2014. With her long list of achievements as a recording star, she is worthy of the Pop Queen tittle, right?

Yuan Francisco

Viewers were surprised when Paopao, the adorable young character in Encantadia, transformed into a mighty Rodjun Cruz in last Monday’s episode of the top-rating series. The kid was back as anticipated last Tuesday. He transforms into a bigger man when the need arises. But who is this kid in real life?  Yuan is a 6-year-old commercial model that auditioned for the Paopao role with the Kapuso network had a casting call. He was discovered in a mall. With his wit and natural charm, we believe this kid will go a long way. 

Jodi Sta Maria

She earned a nomination in the Best Performance by an Actress at the International Emmys for her performance in ABS-CBN’s Pangako Sa ‘Yo.  And guess who Jodi is up against with in this category?  It’s none other than Judi Dench who got the nod for her performance in BBC One TV movie Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot. It’s a tough competition indeed.  But to be nominated alongside the Oscar-winning actress is already a feat in itself. So, congratulations, Jodi!

Alyas Robin Hood

Prior to the series’ premiere, writer Suzette Doctolero took to social media to defend that the show wasn’t inspired by the hit US series, Arrow. She even challenged the people who dared to compare the local series to the DC Comics-inspired show to pinpoint the glaring similarities. Now, we have to admit that Doctolero was in fact telling the truth. Alyas Robin Hood is no way a carbon copy of Arrow. No, it can’t be because Arrow is so excellently written and produces, very much unlike Alyas Robin Hood that needs tweaking in all the production aspects to even be, at least 10 percent at par, with the Hollywood series.

Aljur Abrenica

The Kapuso actor stars in a biopic film Hermano Puli, a CEB Graded B film, which aims to retell the struggle and heroism of long-forgotten religious man who hailed from Lucban, Quezon. With its goal to replicate the success of Heneral Luna, it was initially expected to make waves once it hits commercial theaters. But everything didn’t happen as planned. The film lacks not only the proper story to be considered a great film; it also doesn’t have the star to pull off such ambition. Aljur’s charm fell short to make everything work, apparently.

Albie Casiño

He is definitely the casualty in Andi Eigenmann’s early pregnancy amid the confirmation that the real culprit was Jake Ejercito. This “secret” has hurt his career terribly, not to mention that it also tarnished his reputation. Now that his name is all clear, it will still be hard for Albie to reclaim his lost star. Now, he’s no longer that young to be paired with younger actresses and there are a lot of younger actors these days that are more talented and good looking. Let’s just say the universe just didn’t cooperate with him.
