GMA Network proudly shared with The Manila Times late Wednesday afternoon that Alden Richards’ “Alaala: A Martial Law Special” documentary drama had just won a silver award at the 2018 New York Festivals held that morning (Tuesday evening in the United States).
The awards night, mounted this year in Las Vegas Nevada, saw the network’s prized star receiving the trophy for the Docu-drama category where he portrayed the role of Martial Law activist and award-winning screenwriter Bonifacio Ilagan, who was a human rights victim during the dark period in Philippine modern history. The true-to-life drama, whose production closely involved Ilagan himself, was aired in September 2017 to commemorate the 45th anniversary of President Marcos’ declaration of Martial Law.
On his official Instagram account @aldenrichards02 the actor said, “Thank you to the New York Festivals for this great recognition. Congratulations to Team Alala for the win! To God be the glory! #humbled”
Richards has been traveling around the US and Canada since early April as part of the “Sikat Ka, Kapuso” ensemble of stars with Dingdong Dantes, Dennis Trillo, Jennylyn Mercado, Lovi Poe and Betong Sumaya, to perform for Filipino communities in New Jersey and Toronto.
Moreover, in an emailed statement, the network further said, “GMA Network has another record in Philippine broadcast history, this time bringing home eight medals and four finalist certificates at the 2018 New York Festivals World’s Best TV and Films Competition.”
