It was just another day at the office for GMA Network as the media giant was named the TV Station of the Year, while a host of Kapuso shows and artists bannered by the likes of Alden Richards, Marian Rivera, and Heart Evangelista were recognized at the recently held Village Pipol Choice Awards, better known as VP Choice Awards, last May 21, 2024. 

In addition to the Kapuso network being hailed the best television station in the country, its shows and artists also won big and made waves, led by Asia’s Multimedia Star Alden Richards winning the Movie Actor of the Year award for his performance in “Five Breakups and a Romance.” Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera, meanwhile, was named the Movie Actress of the Year for the box-office hit movie “Rewind.”

Winning the Supporting Movie Actor of the Year award was Sparkle actor Teejay Marquez for his portrayal in the LGBT-comedy film, “Broken Hearts Trip.”

Sparkle’s very own Miss Universe Philippines 2023 Michelle Marquez Dee, whose Tiktok account has 28.4 million likes and 1.3 million followers and an Instagram account with 2 million followers, was recognized as the Breakthrough Social Media Star of the Year.

The long-running “Abot Kamay na Pangarap,” top-billed by Jillian Ward, was hailed the Afternoon TV Series of the Year, while “Black Rider’s” Jon Lucas won the TV Supporting Actor of the Year plum. Up-and-coming Sparkle actor Jeff Moses, who won a best actor prize for his lead portrayal in Bacolodnon cultural movie “Under a Piaya Moon,” was recognized as the Promising Male Actor of the Year.

Sparkle actress and gamer-cosplayer Myrtle Sarrosa, meanwhile, won the Cosplayer of the Year award under the Lifestyle category. The 29-year-old actress, who recently played the villainous role of Portia in the highly acclaimed afternoon series “Makiling,” also won the PH Esports Content Streamer of the Year earlier in April.
