December 30, 2020 – Chicago – The recently concluded “Revelation of Winners” of the 2020 TAG Awards offered a wonderful treat for BL Series lovers this holiday season. It aired last December 25 on The Asian Gigster’s YouTube channel and was virtually hosted by the lovely Kayla, the star of the highly acclaimed YouTube video, “Ikalabing-Walo: Kayla Turns 18.”

“TAG AWARDS launched in 2020 amid the pandemic, with an advocacy to spread positivity & goodwill. Our YouTube channel, The Asian Gigster, will highlight the achievement of remarkable individuals, excelling in the field of social media, entertainment, and entrepreneurship. As a way of giving back to the Filipino community, we chose to launch TAG Awards in the Philippine market this year, while 2021 will mark the pivot towards tapping the global scene,” says Sir John, the Founder of TAG Awards, and is a Filipino American entrepreneur based in Chicago, Illinois, USA.

“Gameboys,” considered as the pioneer of Pinoy BL Series, brought home the much coveted BEST BL SERIES award, with its lead stars Kokoy de Santos and Elijah Canlas snatching the BEST KISS title. This is also the first Filipino Boys Love web series, making a historical premiere on Netflix today.

“Hello Stranger,” featured an innocently sweet yet authentic depiction of two, young men falling in love in unexpected ways, bagging the award for BEST LOVE TEAM for the dashing heartthrobs, Tony Labrusca and  JC Alcantara.

A tie for the BEST ACTOR category was claimed by the moving performance of the lead stars of “Ben x Jim,” Teejay Marquez and Jerome Ponce, while Kat Galang’s unforgettable role paved way for her first Best Supporting Actress trophy.

The effortless, genuine portrayal of Renshi De Guzman’s character, helped him grasp the Best Supporting Actor title for “In Between” by Uncle Scott Global Productions.

Fans are now awaiting the awardees’ plaque unboxing videos on their personal vlogs, along with a featured interview to be uploaded on The Asian Gigster’s YouTube channel.
