It is not Famas, Urian, MTV Awards nor the Oscars that I have watched an awards night live for the first time. Ironically at my age, it is the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards Philippines held last November 29 at Aliw Theater.
Surprisingly, I enjoyed the show. But shame to those who won but did not showed up to receive their award, it’s the kids who voted for you for crying out loud! I believe this award is such a big deal considering that it’s the people of the world’s future who has selected the winner. Thus, those who have been nominated should take the effort to be present during the awarding ceremony even if he or she is in the deepest pit of hell.
However, there seem to be some awards which were obviously rigged like the Favorite TV Show won by Marimar beating the more kid-popular Going Bulilit. It will not be a Filipino awards night anyway without this controversy. Evidently, Going Bulilit when announced as a nominee the kids went crazy with ear-splitting screams but when Marimar was announced as the winner the kids went pretentiously hysterical and hysterically pretentious.
I was happy that Chris Tiu won Favorite Athlete beating Manny Pacquiao and Efren “Bata” Reyes. When Chris appeared on the stage to receive his orange blimp award in front of the screaming-gone-crazy kids, it dawned in me that this may signify the creation of a new and/or future religion called “Iglesia ni Chris Tiu”.
By the way, I was with Nengkoy, my sisters and a couple of pamangkins. Let me bet my skinny pwet (butt), Nengkoy at 71 years, 8 months and 26 days old is the oldest person ever to have watched a Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards live!
Ang sarap maging bata. Yahuuu!
