Angel Locsin will grace the 37th International Emmy Awards in New York

Angel Locsin wore a two-piece bikini in one of the scenes of Lobo, the ABS-CBN fantaserye that earned for her a nomination in the 37th International Emmy Awards.

Angel Locsin left the country this Thursday, November 19, to attend the 37th International Emmy Awards where she is nominated for Best Performance for an Actress.

This 2009, three out of 41 nominees came from the Philippines. Aside from Angel who was recognized for role as a she-wolf in the ABS-CBN fantaserye Lobo, two shows will be competing in the Best Telenovela category: ABS-CBN’s Kahit Isang Saglit starring Jericho Rosales and Carmen Soo as well as GMA-7’s Magdusa Ka starring Katrina Halili and Dennis Trillo.

Katrina and Dennis will be unable to attend the awards night that will take place at the Hilton Hotel, New York City, on November 23. Dennis is currently in Beijing, China to shoot the Metro Manila Film Fest entry Mano Po 6.

Organized by the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, the annual International Emmy Awards aims to celebrate excellence in television produced outside of the U.S.

This marks the second time that a Filipina was nominated for the category Best Performance for an Actress. Tessie Tomas was also nominated for her role as Imelda Marcos in the 1989 film A Dangerous Life.

In an interview with Showbiz News Ngayon (SNN) before boarding her flight to the United States, Angel disclosed that she is happy to represent the Philippines regardless of the outcome.

"Para sa akin, malaking karangalan ito. Manalo, matalo, happy na ako na ma-appreciate lang ng tao ang ginawa mong hirap, malaking effort na. Siyempre, hindi ko naman magagawa yun kung hindi dahil sa director namin."

Lobo was co-directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina and E. M. Reyes.

Is she confident that she will take home the prize? "Hindi ko naman yun iniisip, iniisip ko lang para sa atin itong mga Pilipino. Panahon na para ma-notice tayo. It’s our time to shine."

Angel revealed that she will be wearing a creation by Michael Cinco when she walks on the red carpet. "Six kilos po ang gown ko. Maraming makintab...Actually na-hold siya sa Customs kasi may mga Swarovski. Saka meron akong business suit by Ivar Aseron and Rajo Laurel naman para sa cocktail dress."

Who will be her escort that night? "Wala, eh. In-ask ko si PJ [Piolo Pascual, her leading man in Lobo] pero busy siya sa Lovers in Paris. Wala naman akong ibang naisip na isama dito kundi si PJ kasi soya naman yung kasama ko sa hirap, sa ginhawa dito sa Lobo. So kung hindi siya pwede, hindi rin ako nag-aya ng iba."

Angel mentioned that she did not ask her former boyfriend, Luis Manzano, to accompany her to the International Emmy Awards.
