Despite having a combined total of 7.5 million followers on her Instagram and Twitter accounts, social media sweetheart Anne Curtis still doesn’t consider herself as a shoo-in winner for the Favorite Asian Act in this year’s Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards (KCA).
“Yes! I’m inviting everyone to please vote for me as I represent the Philippines sa Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards for 2014. We’re up against Malaysia, China, and Indonesia. So please all you have to do is visit the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards website and click on Anne Curtis Philippines,” excitedly blurted the It’s Showtime host during an interview at the recently-concluded Century Tuna Superbods Challenge press conference.
Anne excitedly announced her nomination via a post on her Instagram account last February 25 which already has over 26,300 likes and 453 comments as of this writing.
According to the Dyesebel star, being nominated alone is already a huge privilege. “So you know this is another dream come true to be recognized by Nickelodeon. The mere fact that I’m nominated I’m so grateful and happy and thrilled as Favorite Asian Act. All the more na excited na ako to release my new album,” she stated.
The 29-year-old star also takes pride in the fact that she’s put alongside past nominees like Charice and Sarah Geronimo who are both highly-acclaimed singers. “Well they said Asian Act hindi naman Asian singer,” she corrected with a laugh.
Since the votes are expected to come from kids or the Nickelodeon viewers, Anne highlights that “It’s all about having fun… So maraming salamat to all the Filipino Nicksters for choosing me to eh nominated as your favorite Asian Act. Sobra po akong nagpapasalamat. Thank you kids,” she ended.
Meanwhile, speaking of competition, Anne, who is set to reprise the role of Mars Ravelo’s famous comics Dyesebel on primetime soon, said that she doesn’t mind that a rival network also came up with a mermaid-themed soap to match hers. “I think that’s normal. There will always be competition naman so okay lang,” Anne replied.
How’s the Dyesebel shoot going so far? “It’s been good. Actually that’s one of the reasons why I’ve been working out and training so perfect timing din talaga ‘yung Century Tuna because I’m Dyesebel. Have to be fit as well and working with them has been fun,” she said.
Apart from Dyesebel, Anne is also set to release her second album soon as well as stage her second concert titled Forbidden Concert Round 2: AnneKapal on May 16 at the Araneta Coliseum. “Abangan niyo ‘yun, another reason why I have to get toned para walang nagji-jiggle habang kumakanta ako,” she supplied.
