by Erwin Santiago

Two Pinoy drama series and a Filipino actress are among the nominees in the 37th edition of the International Emmy Awards. ABS-CBN's Kahit Isang Saglit (A Time For Us) and GMA-7' Magdusa Ka are nominated for Best Telenovela, along with Brazil's India-A Love Story and France's Second Chance. Kahit Isang Saglit, a Filipino-Malaysia co-production starred Jericho Rosales and Malaysian actress Carmen Soo, while Magdusa Ka featured Katrina Halili and Dennis Trillo.

Meanwhile, Angel Locsin was nominated as Best Actress for her performance in Lobo, her first primetime series in ABS-CBN after she moved from GMA-7. She will be competing against France's Emma de Caunes for Night Birds, Mexico's Cecilia Suarez for Capadocia, and British actress Julie Walters for A Short Stay In Switzerland. Walters is best known as Mrs. Molly Weasley in the Harry Potter movie franchise. The winners for the 37th International Emmy Awards will be announced on November 23, 2009 at a Black-Tie Ceremony hosted by UK television star Graham Norton at the Hilton New York Hotel. Nominations span over 17 countries with first ever Emmy nomination for Thailand, in the Children & Young People Category.
