MANILA, Philippines – The nominees for the Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards have been announced and 4 Filipinos are up for the Favorite Pinoy Star award.

Encantadia star and singer Gabbi Garcia, The Good Son‘s Loisa Andalio and Joshua Garcia, and singer Iñigo Pascual are this year’s young celebrities nominated in the category.

Known for her role as Sang’gre Alena in the 2016 edition of Encantadia, Gabbi is now making a name in the music industry with her song “All I Need.” She currently hosts the GMA YouTube show #Goals and can be seen in the show Sherlock Jr.



He came to the spotlight as Piolo Pascual’s son, but Iñigo has stepped out of his dad’s shadow, proving that he is also talented. One of  Iñigo’s biggest achievements is to sing the theme song of the movie Coco “Remember Me” during its Philippine release.



Since coming out of Pinoy Big Brother in 2014 as one of the participants, Joshua Garcia has been carving a name for himself as an actor. He starred in a number of teleseryes such as The Greatest Love, Nasaan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita, and The Good Son. His tandem with Julia Barretto has also gained popularity, having starred together in Vince, Kath, and James, Love You to the Stars and Back, and Unexpectedly Yours.



Like Joshua, Loisa Andalio started her career through Pinoy Big Brother. She currently stars  in The Good Son and was also part of the shows Nasaan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita, Be My Lady, and My Dear Heart.
