I love showbiz. Unlike a lot of the people with the same demographics, I don’t consider showbiz as a guilty pleasure. I simply am a massive fan of the industry. Everyone knows that my bias is the ALDUB loveteam, among other mainstream actors and indie/character actors.

One of my trusted websites when it comes to seeking showbiz news and commentary is Lionheartv. I am so thrilled that I get the chance to partner with this site and be a part of their annual award-giving ceremony, the #RAWRAwards2018.


It’s astonishing that despite their huge following, Lionheartv partnered with 250 bloggers (myself included) to help share and promote this star-studded event that will be held on November 14, at the Le Rêve Pool Party Venue and Events Place. I’m so excited to be a part of this spectacular event as I am a huge fan of several celebrities that have been nominated. 25 awards are at stake and are grouped into three major categories: Lion, Cub, and Pride.

Here are the nominees:

LIONHEARTV founders organized this award-giving ceremony to recognize talents in the entertainment industry, build a stronger partnership with other media outlets, and to thank the people who have supported the site through the years.

To vote for the nominees in their respective categories, log on to Voting is ongoing and will end on November 4, 11:59PM.

P.S. I already voted. Of course, I’m sad that my fandom, Aldubnation nor Aldub wasn’t nominated, but I guess I have to carefully accept that Aldub is really coming to an end. Yes, Aldub is still one of the most trending hashtags and has the most loyal fans around the world, but not being nominated is clearly a sign that both Alden and Maine have moved on to each of their individual paths.
