GMA Network congratulates multi-talented Kapuso actress Sunshine Dizon for her win as the Most Outstanding Filipina Actress in Television at the 2017 Gawad Amerika Awards held last November 18 at the Franklin Avenue Celebrity Center in Hollywood, California. 

Sunshine was recognized for her exceptional performance in GMA Network’s highest-rating daytime drama series Ika-6 Na Utos as Emma. She personally flew to California to accept her award. 

Through an Instagram post, Sunshine thanked not only the award-giving body but also the entire team behind Ika-6 Na Utos. “Thank you very much Gawad Amerika most specially to the Filipino Community for this recognition. I would also like to share this recognition to all our hardworking cast members, production staff, and crew of Ika-6 Na Utos, as well as to director Laurice Guillen for her guidance. It is ultimately a group effort to give our audience the best.” 

She also expressed her gratitude to the network and the show’s loyal viewers. “To my home network, GMA, thank you for giving me the opportunity to be part of memorable shows that honed me through the years to be where I am today as an artist. Sa lahat din po ng taga-suporta ng show, maraming salamat sa inyong pag-tangkilik at pag-subaybay sa amin,” she says. 

Gawad Amerika Awards is an annual celebration which recognizes the excellence of individuals and entrepreneurs who have gone above and beyond in their area of specialty. It is an independent award-giving body mainly composed of newspaper publishers and selected reputable community leaders.  

Organized by Gawad Amerika Foundation (GAF) in California, it aims to create an environment where Filipino-Americans can validate their importance in the American society and construct innovative projects to continually endorse fresh ideas and talents. 

Watch Ika-6 Na Utos even when abroad via GMA’s flagship international channel, GMA Pinoy TV.
