The awards night of TV5’s grandest artista search happens tomorrow, Oct. 27, 8:30 p.m. as Artista Academy (AA) returns to the SMART Araneta Coliseum where it first opened its doors to over 12,000 hopefuls for its massive one-day audition last June.
It will be the ultimate showdown of talent, looks and charm as six grand finalists — Honor Students Akihiro Blanco, Chanel Morales, Mark Neumann, Shaira Mae, Sophie Albert and Vin Abrenica — put to use everything they have learned from their months of training at the Asian Academy of Television Arts (AATA) to show how deserving they are of the Best Actor and Best Actress titles.
Artista Academy grand winners will bag a total of P20M in cash and prizes plus guaranteed lead roles in an upcoming TV5 teleserye.
The grand night will showcase all six Honor Students’ talents in singing, dancing and acting. Their individual short films will also be shown along with the comments of the directors who have worked with them. Eric Quizon directed the three short films of the girls while Joyce Bernal helmed the boys’ drama flicks.
The other Artista Academy students (Tropang Kick-Out members Benjo Leoncio, Brent Manzano, Chris Leonardo, Jon Orlando, Malak So Shdifat, Marvelous Alejo, Nicole Estrada and Stephanie Rowe) will also be sharing the stage once again for a special production number.
Admission to the Artista Academy Awards Night at the Big Dome is free. For tickets, tune in to Artista Academy weeknights at 9 after Wil Time Bigtime.
