Liza Soberano and Karla Estrada shone the brightest at this year’s Push Awards as they bagged three awards each, making them the most awarded online personalities in the digital media event held on the online show “ASAP Chillout” on Sunday (October 15). Out of four nominations, Liza won three, including Push Female Celebrity, Push Female Movie Performance of the Year for “My Ex and Whys” and Push Female TV Performance of the Year for “Dolce Amore.”
Karla, meanwhile, triumphed in all of her categories, namely the Push Celebrity Host of the Year, Celebrity Foodie of the Year #FoodGoals and Celebrity Family of the Year #FamilyGoals. Daniel Padilla was also named the Push Male Celebrity and won the Push Male Movie Performance of the Year for “Barcelona,” while Edward Barber was recognized as the Push Newcomer.
The tandem of Edward and Maymay Entrata, meanwhile, enjoyed a breakout win as the Push Group/Tandem. Their fans, the MayWards, also captured the Ultimate Fan Award for posting the highest number of tweets among all fan clubs during the seven-week voting period.
The winners of the Push performance categories were determined by the combined online fan votes and judges’ scores, which accounted for 30% and 70% of the total scores, respectively. Meanwhile all the winners in the Push Personality and Push Goals categories were purely based on the number of online fan votes.
