CTOR Zan­joe Marudo has been nom­i­nated for the top act­ing tro­phy at the pres­ti­gious 45th In­ter­na­tional Emmy Awards. The Ka­pam­ilya star earned the nod for his por­trayal in the “Anino” episode of the long­est-run­ning drama an­thol­ogy in Asia, “Maalaala Mo Kaya” (MMK). In the said episode, Marudo played the role of Vic­tor, a fam­ily man who wel­comed strangers who even­tu­ally took ad­van­tage of his kind­ness. His char­ac­ter got de­pressed and was later on di­ag­nosed with para­noid schizophre­nia.

Marudo will com­pete in the Best Per­for­mance by an Ac­tor cat­e­gory to­gether with Julio An­drade (“Um Con­tra To­dos) from Brazil, Ked Merad (“Baron Noir”) from France, and sea­soned ac­tor/di­rec­tor Ken­neth Branagh in “Wal­lan­der” from the United King­dom. Aside from Marudo, ABS-CBN’s prime­time news­cast “TV Pa­trol’s” spe­cial re­port “Su­per Typhoon Lawin’s Trail of Dam­age” was nom­i­nated for the News cat­e­gory.

This is not the first time a Filipino ac­tor was nom­i­nated in the In­ter­na­tional Emmy Awards. Just last year, ac­tress Jodi Sta. Maria went head-to­head with Chris­tiane Paul, Grazi Mas­safera and Judi Dench in the Best Ac­tress cat­e­gory. Paul, who top-billed “Un­term Radar” (Un­der the Radar), took home the tro­phy.

Lo­cal hit se­ries “Bridges of Love,” star­ring Jeri­cho Ros­ales and Maja Sal­vador, was also nom­i­nated for the Best Te­len­ov­ela in 2016. The win­ners of the 45th In­ter­na­tional Emmy Awards will be an­nounced on Novem­ber 20 in New York City, USA. (SunS­tar Philip­pines)
