RAWR Awards 2021

LionhearTV’s RAWR Awards are expanding their scope of awards for 2021

LionHearTV.net presents its own set of awards each year, dubbed the RAWR Awards. The term RAWR is merely a stylized version of the word ‘roar,’ which refers to the sound of the jungle king.

Each year, the awardees are people who have made a huge impression on the entertainment industry as a whole.

This year’s awards are divided into four categories: the Cub, the Lion, the Pride, and the Royal Awards.

RAWR AWARDS 2021 – Cub Awards

Beshie ng Taon.

In any story, he or she serves as the sidekick, the cheerleader for the Bida. He or she is sometimes neglected and taken for granted, but because of his or her commitment to telling and completing a story—he or she provides a unique support system for the lead—he or she deserves recognition as well.

Favorite Bida.

Bida is a term that refers to the star of a television show or a film. The Favorite Bida is someone who performed really well. Though the protagonists of the past were victims who allowed the antagonist to mistreat them, the Bida today understands how to fight back while still earning the audience’s sympathy.

Favorite Kontrabida.

Any Bida will be less successful and persuasive if his or her ‘kontrabida’ falls short of expectations. The aforementioned award is granted to the antagonist who earned the audience’s hatred through their guts and who, if given the chance, can steal the focus from the protagonist. With numerous bankable artists becoming villains, one can only be dubbed the Ultimate Kontrabida.

Station of the Year
