  • “We are grateful that through our content, we can show the world the real wealth of our country. These are our strong family values and our resilience as a people. We see no better way of achieving it than through television,” said Charo, who spoke as the Gala Chair of the 43rd International Emmy Awards held in Hilton Hotel New York last Monday.

    Charo, who delivered her speech before the world’s best producers, creatives, and talents, is the first Filipino Gala Chair invited to participate in the prestigious event, which she referred to as the “world’s most important annual television event”.

    According to Charo, the International Emmy Awards does not only celebrate television excellence all over the globe, but also demonstrates the power of television as a medium of empathy, connection, and understanding among all peoples of the world.

    “The more we care, the less we fight. During dark days of terror, we come together in prayer. So, the world, far from falling part, is even inspired to unite,” she said.  emmy-awards

    Charo, who is the first Filipino Gala Chair in the Emmys, said that when content producers begin to know and care about people and things, “we begin to care about other people’s quest for love, pursuit of dreams, cry for justice, celebration of triumph, and struggle for survival.

    Meanwhile, award-winning actor Piolo Pascual also had his shining moment when he presented the award for Best Telenovela alongside Karla Mosley of “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

    Before the awards proper, Charo and Piolo both graced the red carpet and granted media interviews. Charo looked elegant in her Cary Santiago terno gown, while Pascual looked dashing in a black suit. Charo’s and Piolo’s participation in the International Emmy Awards marks a new milestone in Philippine broadcasting history. It serves as a recognition of how Filipino content can be at par with global standards.
