Filipino Peeps! I Love "Balitang America" from The Filipino Channel (ABS-CBN)! They Gave Me Emmy Love! 

As some of you may know, I'm not really Dutch but I'm a proud Filipino/American :happy

And as some of you may know, I'm on "Balitang America" every Friday. The show is the 30-minute nightly news program of ABS-CBN International. Aired at 5:05 PM PT / 8:05 PM ET on The Filipino Channel Mondays thru Fridays, Balitang America is the reliable resource of Filipinos in the United States and Canada for news stories, events, special reports and in-depth interviews. And the main anchor, Gel Santos-Relos is a super-sweet angel who's great on-camera and equally great off-camera.

"Balitang America" is nationwide and worldwide y'all! So all my cousins and families and friends from all over the world can see me. Check out their website right here.

But I'm sharing this news with you today because I didn't know that last week, when I reviewed "A Nightmare on Elm Street," Miss Santos-Relos gave me love. I'm one of the nominees for Best On-Cam Talent for our Regional Emmy (Pacific Southwest), so yay! I know it's cliche, but just to be nominated is truly an honor! (Check the complete list of nominees right here)

So thank you Miss Gel and Balitang America for being so sweet and nice to me, and please keep your fingers crossed that I get that darn Emmy when the awards are given out June 26th.

Marami pong salamat!

My Return to the Midwest! My Fun Debut at KMTV in Omaha, Nebraska! 

I spent the better part of my life in Northwest Indiana, so when our sister station in Omaha, Nebraska asked me if they can include my Manny the Movie Guy segment in their Morning Blend show, I said why not? I love the Midwest!

So now, I can be seen on Action 3 News/KMTV, a CBS affiliate, every Friday on their Morning Blend show at 9 a.m.

Check out KMTV's site by clicking here, and my Morning Blend debut right here. Of course, I kicked off my appearance there with one of the biggest movies this summer season, "Iron Man 2!" Watch me transform :happy
