Good or bad, Angel Locsin's appearance at the red carped in the 37th International Emmy Awards made waves. This is better than simply being ignored. As Dolphy said to Angel when she just joined ABS, "good or bad publicity is still a publicity. You should start worrying when no one talks about you anymore."
I saw this article in a site (guest of a guest) based in New York. Angel's picture is posted alongside with US celebrities and her co-nominees have not been featured.
Now, if you visit Cognac Wellerlane's website, you will see it is Angel's first two photos that are being displayed in Cogna'c article. Again, Angel's co-nominees have not been featured as well as other stars.
[pictures of other stars are posted here]
As they say, you cannot please everybody. In the entertainment section of Boston Herald, there is an article with a title, "Divas need to hide these dresses away." There are four divas featured here along with Angel. Other divas are Rihanna (singer), Emma de Caunes (Angel's co-nominee from France and Mr. Bean's leading lady in one of his films), and Sonya Kraus (German TV presenter and former model). Well, at least Angel is in good company hee.

We did not go outside the Hilton were the red carpet was because the weather last night in NYC was really cold and windy. We decided to stand next to the escalator going up to the function hall. We had such a good vantage view of everyone coming and of course friendly as we are we befriended the security guard that was ushering all the guest up the escalator "nagpapalakas"! Anyway we were standing there a long time together with the other guests and visitors at the Hilton. At one point one guy asked me who we were waiting for ready with our cameras and I said the moment your hear the screams from the outside and us here you will know! I said " she is our number one actress from the Phil."! Oh he said and waited with us too. Then we heard all the screaming outside and somebody said "she's here". Before that there were these 3 guys good looking British Actors hamming infront of us to take there pictures! We obliged and then one said "You are waiting for the woman in white are you?" And we all said "Yes". And he said "I am going to marry her"! When he said this we all shouted "No" and we all started laughing and then they all went there way up the escalator. It took such a long time for Gel to get in because everyone, I mean everyone of the press wanted her picture and interview. -cutebteb@PEx
Sa red carpet maraming guests ang hilton na nagaantay kon sino ang darating na stars at kumukuha din sila ng mga pics, ang sabi nang isang guest she must be a big star kasi matagal raw pakawalan ng press at nakisigaw na rin sila Angel! Angel! bago kumuha sila ng mga pics at tulad ng nasabi ni Trish yon mga Pilipino na dumating na sumuporta at sumisigaw Go Angel! Go Pinoy! Naipakita rin ni Angel sa staff ng Emmy kung paano siya nag appreciate sa kanila...Kung napansin ninyo sa vidio ni Margie (cody). pagpasok ni Gel may hina hug siya, sila yon mga staff ng Emmy. lahat ng stars pumapasok hindi ho sila pinapansin iba just a little smile lang at konting wave pero nakita ninyo si Gel pagpasok niya ng makita niya parang matagal na niya kilala nilapitan niya at binigyan niya ng hug...Yan ang ating Angel! -grannyvin@PEx
