December 29 14:28 2020

December 29, 2020 – Chicago – ‚Ä®Christmas 2020 came with a special present for the first ever awardees of the 2020 TAG Awards Chicago. The special, holiday event, dubbed as the “Revelation of Winners” was hosted virtually by Kayla, the star of the highly acclaimed YouTube video, “Ikalabing-Walo: Kayla Turns 18.”

Moira Dela Torre’s “Paubaya” captured the hearts of the jury and online voters, as its lyrical tale of unrequited love won Song of the Year (Philippines).

Filipino pop rock band, The Juans, earned the highly coveted award, Band of the Year (Philippines). Their heartfelt rendition of their most popular hits, “Hatid,” “Pangalawang Bitaw,” and “Hindi Tayo Pwede” proved iconic among their huge fanbase, Juanistas.

“Pobya,” a riveting story of a dog (Coco Chanel) and her gay companion, and how it accidentally taught him to heal from a hidden emotional trauma, bagged the most sought after victory for Best Short Film (Philippines).

“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,” says Sir John, the Founder of TAG Awards, and is a Filipino American entrepreneur based in Chicago, Illinois, USA.

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. Full list of the 2020 TAG Awards Official Finalists are listed below.
