2014 Yahoo Celebrity Awards

I love celebrity awards event and yep! my kids are teens now and more likely that they influenced me more than ever. So for three years, I am attending the uber posh most popular awards in the country which uniquely powered by the fans, the Yahoo Celebrity Awards. For this year brought my colleagues who are for decades are fans of Yahoo and using the search engine and email all their life. We enjoyed the "Yahoo Press Launch" night and not to mention the star gazing. So read below  to know more about what to expect on the upcoming Yahoo Awards Night. If I am you, I will grab the free tickets at all SM outlets right away.:)

Were all fans of Yahoo and using it for more than two decades already.

On June 4, 2014 at Amber Lounge at Fort Bonifacio, Taguig, Yahoo Philippines on their usual uber super duper to the max amazing way, announced the launch of the Yahoo Celebrity Awards 2014 and unveiled the nominees for this year. Before, it's the popular OMG! Awards and now they just simply calling it as "Yahoo Celebrity Awards" to honor the celebrities from different fields. Oh I hope they will have that popular ice cream brand again as sponsor, craving here actually. We love also the presence of the Yahoo executives too during the launch with the likes of the Country Manager Kate De Los Reyes and Counrty Sales Director Mike Constantino. I can't wait for the July 18, 2014 Awards Night at Mall Of Asia Arena (MOA).

Liza can't help but to have Marian Rivera in this photo with her.  She loves celebrity awards.

For this 2014, 140 nominees across 28 categories  will be announced and for the fans to enjoy– with ten new categories added especially given the emerging trends in the entertainment industry. The event gives users a chance to vote for their favorite stars on Yahoo Celebrity and see them up-close and personal during a star-studded, glamorous evening. Fans can also request for performances by their favorite stars at the gala awards ceremony and supported by leading brands in Philippines, including McDonald’s, KakaoTalk, PLDT HOME Bro Ultera, JAG Jeans and Emperador Light. 

 What makes the Yahoo Celebrity Awards even more special this year is the new ‘Yahoo-On-the-Road’ bus, which will be touring schools showcasing nominees of the Band of the Year and Emerging Band categories. The bus is fully geared for fans to engage with the bands, cast their votes and request performances. 

 As always that
we love also the presence of the Yahoo executives too during the launch with the likes of the Country Manager Kate De Los Reyes and Counrty Sales Director Mike Constantino.

This year’s Celebrity Awards includes ten exciting new additions to the existing classic categories: Celebrity Couple, Celebrity Family, Male and Female Hothletes, Band of the Year, Male and Female ‘Kontrabida’, Emerging Band, Song of the Year and Social Media Star.

The prettiest of them all is of course actress and celebrity endorser Marian Rivera.

Commenting on the name change of the Awards, Nitin Mathur, Senior Director, Marketing, APAC, said,  “After three successful editions the Yahoo OMG! Awards have been renamed as Yahoo Celebrity Awards this year.  These awards are an extension of the Yahoo Celebrity site and what it stands for – rich, exciting content for entertainment enthusiasts. We believe the new name better reflects what the Awards stand for, and we are confident that fans in Philippines will show their overwhelming support for the awards this year around too.”
