Mara Clara remake gets Banff nomination

Mara Clara Cast
The remake of Mara Clara is nominated for Banff. The casts are very happy about it. The original Mara Clara was aired in ABS-CBN in the 90's that made Judy Ann Santos and Gladys Reyes a household names. The remake is the most watched telenovela today.

Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes plays Mara and Clara respectively. Mara Clara is the story of two young ladies who were switched when they were babies in the hospital.

The other local telenovela that is nominated is the Baker King which is an adaptation from a Korean telenovela which is entitled as Bread, Love and Dreams.

MANILA, Philippines - ABS-CBN's remake of the 90s classic soap opera "Mara Clara" is set to compete in Canada's 2011 Banff World Media Festival in June.

According to Banff's official website, "Mara Clara" is one of the two Asian nominees in the Telenovelas & Soap Operas category, pitted against South Korea's "Bread, Love and Dreams," popularly known locally as GMA 7's "Baker King."

Aside from "Bread, Love and Dreams," "Mara Clara" will be up against the United Kingdom's "Coronation Street"; and the USA's "Days of Our Lives," "Eva Luna" and "The Queen of the South" in the same category.

"Mara Clara" was originally aired on ABS-CBN from 1992 until 1997. The original story, created by Emil Cruz, Jr., follows the life of two young ladies, the meek but poor Mara and the rich villain Clara, who were switched at birth. The original starred Judy Ann Santos (Mara) and Gladys Reyes (Clara).

In 2010, ABS-CBN announced that a remake of the hit TV series will be aired and will star rookie actresses Kathryn Bernardo as Mara and Julia Montes as Clara. The show is currently airing on ABS-CBN's primetime block.

The Banff World Media Festival, also known as the "Rockies," is an "internationally-recognized awards program celebrating the very best in international television and digital media production" and will run from June 12-15.

Generally, the festival is divided into three categories: the Fiction Rockies, the Non-Fiction Rockies and the Interactive Rockies. The Telenovelas & Soap Operas category is under the Fiction Rockies, a category that "recognizes the very best in scripted television programming from around the world."

The Fiction Rockies awards ceremony will take place on June 12 at the AOL Canada Theater and will be hosted by "Entertainment Tonight" Canada's Hollywood correspondent Matte Babel.

Mara Clara gets the 34.6% highest Rating

Mara Clara is the best tele-series in ABS-CBN today. I have watched the show from the very beginning up to today. I like the show very much and I found out that not only me is watching Mara Clara but the whole Filipino community in the world. As a testament of this Mara Clara is the highest rated show from the very beginning up to today with 34.6% rate compared to its rival show.

The show is about two teenagers who were swapped during the time that they were born in the hospital. Actually this tele-series is a remake already because the first one was the reason why Judy Ann Santos became a big star. In original version Judy Ann is Mara while Gladys Reyes is Clara. Now in the present version Mara is Kathryn Bernardo while Clara is Julia Montes. The two teenagers are very happy because their show is the highest rated show in Philippines television today.

The show will have a second part which they call the book 2 so we can still see the show for a long time.

Here is the news from ABS-CBN:

MANILA, Philippines – Young stars Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes expressed happiness that their series "Mara Clara" drew impressive high TV ratings and rave reviews from viewers from the time it started and up to now that they are opening book 2 of the series.

"Nagpapasalamat po kami dahil sa suporta ng mga tao, sa walang sawang panonood nila sa 'Mara Clara'," Montes said in an interview during a press conference for "Mara Clara"'s book 2.
Montes and Bernardo's first TV project together continues to boom in ratings. Kantar Media's national ratings results showed that for the month of January, "Mara Clara" had a 29.9% average rating, maintaining its top spot among the most watched shows in the country.

On Monday, January 31, the show earned its highest national rating to date, 34.6%, against its rival program, which had a rating of 17.3%.

That Monday's episode was the revelation night when viewers found out that the real del Valle is Mara (Bernardo) and not Clara (Montes).

Bernardo asked viewers to continue to watch their show especially now that they will be switching roles.

"Dapat abangan ang magiging buhay namin ni Clara at conflict sa family," Bernardo said.
Another episode widely anticipated is that of the grand celebration for the 16th birthday of the real del Valle (Bernardo).

Mara will be given a big party for her 16th birthday where she will shine as she dances with more than 16 guys.

"Makakasama ko po dito ang mahigit sa 16 na Kapamilya stars. Kung sino sila, 'yun ang dapat abangan ng mga taga-subaybay," Bernardo said.
