The Idol ng Masa, Coco Martin, is in so much gratitude last September 29, 2016, Thursday, for winning awards in the University of Perpetual Help DALTA’s Alta Media Icon Awards 2016.
Coco Martin was named as the Best Drama Actor for TV for FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.(ABS-CBN 2). While the aforementioned primetime show, FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, was also named as the Best Primetime Drama Series.
Coco Martin may not have been present in the awarding ceremony due to his work commitments but, he was able to send a message to those who voted and trusted him with the award.
“Maraming maraming salamat sa pagmamahal sa akin at sa pagtitiwala sa aking kakayahan. Ang karangalan pong ito ay siyang nagbibigay sa akin ng dahilan na lalo ko pang pagbutihin ang aking trabaho. Sana ay makapagbigay pa ako ng magandang inspirasyon sa ating mga kabataan at mga mag-aaral. Maraming maraming salamat po at mahal na mahal ko kayo.”
This is the Idol ng Masa’s second win in the ALTA Media Icon Awards as he also won the Best Actor for TV (Drama) last year for his primetime teleserye, Ikaw Lamang, in the first ALTA Media Icon Awards. The Alta Media Icon Awards gives recognition for excellence in print, broadcast, film, television, etc.

When asked regarding the best value that Coco learned in doing FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano after 1 year, he shared “Napakarami po eh. Siguro po bilang isang normal na tao, as a viewer and as an actor, napakaraming good values ang pinapakita ng FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. Unang una pagdating sa pamilya. Kung paano nagmamahalan, nagiintindihan ang isang pamilya. Paano namin sinosolve ang mga problema. And then yung pakikipagkapwa tao sa labas ng tahanan. Kung baga lahat yun bilang artista, na-absorb ko ‘yun dahil may mga values din akong natututunan…”
He also shared his insight in taking the role of a policeman and in seeing the right of every Filipino citizen. “Bilang pulis naman, nakikita ko yung mga karapatan ng mga pulis at karapatan din ng mga indibidwal na tao na dapat napapaalam natin sa mga manonood.”
The Primetime King also shared that beyond the entertainment that they are providing, they are also doing the show in the service of the Filipino people. “May purpose kami kung bakit namin ginagawa ito. Hindi lang para makapaglahad ng kwento kundi para makapagbahagi din sa mga manonood ng good values ng mga Pilipino. Ang laki ng na-co-contribute natin sa Pamilyang Pilipino dahil nakapagbigay tayo ng aral.”
It could be noted that the award-winning primetime show also shares “Ligtas Tips”aside from the resolution of cases with value-laden takeaways.
Pepe Herrera, who plays Benny, further expounds, “In relation to what Mr. Coco Martin said about family values, nagpapasalamat po ako dahil magandang reminder po para sa akin and reminder na rin po for the viewers yung concept po ng family ng isang Pilipino na hindi po ito nagtatapos sa kadugo. Makikita niyo naman po sa family namin, sa Lola Flora’s house, tatlo lang po silang magkakadugo. Kami po ay ampon. Para po sa akin, malaking bagay po iyon. Tumatatak po sa akin at sa viewers.”
The FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano cast also excited the press about the upcoming episodes of the series in the next three months.
Coco Martin divulged, “Sisiguraduhin namin sa inyo na sa loob ng tatlong buwan, hinding hindi kayo bibitaw dahil ito ang pinakamatagal na hinihintay ng mga tao..” That Eric John Salut also confirmed “Kargadong kargado in the next three months!”
Gratitude was also extended to everyone who were present in the event and to those who helped and supported FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano for 1 year, especially the Dreamscape Head, Mr. Deo Endrinal.
And because of that, the cast of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano gives the FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano: Isang Pamilya Tayo The Anniversary Concert this October 8, 2016, 7:30PM, at the Araneta Coliseum. Get your free tickets on October 1 & 2, 1PM-7PM at the ABS-CBN Center Road.
