It was a humbling and awe-inspiring day for the Idol ng Masa & Primetime King, Coco Martin, as his talent in acting was recognized by two prestigious award-giving bodies last week, April 8, 2016 (Friday).

The 4th Bataan Peninsula State University’s Kagitingan Awards recognized Coco Martin with the “Pinakamagiting Na Personalidad Sa Dulang Serye (Drama Series)” award for his primetime telserye, FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. The aforementioned series was also awarded as the “Pinakamagiting Na Dulang Serye (Drama Series)”.

The Kagitingan Awards is an annual event of BPSU organized by the Office the Arts and Cultural Affairs which is held every Celebration of the Day of Valor. The recognition is based on the importance or values of heroism in its different faces. And, the overall indicator of the concept of “Kagitingan” is based on the standards of group of students that comprise the Electoral College.

Meanwhile, the 14th Gawad Tanglaw Awards also acknowledged Coco Martin with the “Best Perfromance by an Actor in a Series” award for his acting prowess in the top-rating teleserye, FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. The aforementioned teleserye was again noted as the “Best Television Series.”
