The awarding was made last night, June 21, at the Republiq Bar in Resorts World.
Supporting Ritz in this momentous event are her TV5 and Talent5 families represented by Perci Intalan and Audie Gemora, respectively.
“I am very proud of Ritz,” says Audie. “This lady (Ritz) will go a long, long way pa. This award is very inspiring not just to Ritz, but also to the whole Talent5 and TV5 family.”
Ritz bested talents from rival networks by topping the online poll in the category.
With her pretty face and refreshing demeanor, the young TV actress and commercial model easily grabbed the attention of people present, including Aljur Abrenica, who became Ritz’ instant companion for the evening.
Meanwhile, Christian Bautista won the Coolest Male Singer Award.
Christian, who is now in Singapore taping for The Kitchen Musical, said this in his acceptance video, “even though I am here (in Singapore), I can feel your love. Thank you very much.”
Fellow STAGES talents Karylle and Sam Concepcion were also nominated for the Coolest Female Singer and Awesome Young Actor categories, respectively. Sam also closed the event on a high note when he performed Chris Brown’s Yeah 3x.
