Actress Jodi Sta. Maria was nominated for Best Actress at the International Emmy Awards for her portrayal of Amor Powers in Pangako Sa’yo. The awards night was held at the Hilton Hotel in New York and unfortunately Jodi lost the Best Actress award to German actress Christiane Paul.
But that didn’t stop Jodi from dressing to the nines and she really won us over in fashion—that white Mark Bumgarner gown was ace. She was styled by Patricia Coronado with her glam team Lala Flores and Jay Wee.
Just a few hours ago, Jodi also posted a long inspiring post thanking every single one who supported and prayed for her. It really was a memorable experience for Jodi and she was proud of sharing Filipino hospitality to the other attendees.
Thank you sooo much for praying and cheering for me! 😙 Attending and being nominated at the 44th International Emmy Awards is a memorable experience. Making new friends, sharing a glimpse of the Filipino hospitality to my fellow nominees, proudly speaking about the beauty of the Philippines and representing the country to 15 nations made it more meaningful and special. I believe we are ready for the global scene..the international stage is opening up and there are opportunities to showcase our talents worldwide. To my team…@lalaflores16 @patriciacoronado @jayweehair @nhilanhils @aye_s_are and Mamu..thank you sooo much for believing in me and sharing this wonderful experience with me. You guys are the best. This will serve as inspiration for me to be more dedicated and serious and passionate about my craft and to be better than the person who I was yesterday. When God gives us talents and puts a dream in our hearts, its for a good purpose. And its up to us to have courage to pursue, fight, believe, and fulfill that dream. To God be the glory! Good morning Manila!! 😍😊 Congratulations too to #bridgesoflove 😙 #proudtobepinoy #iemmys

It’s cheesy, but I’ll say it anyway—her fashion lewk, that sweet post, and the fact that she made a mark for her fellow Filipino performers made her the winner![Inquirer.net]
