Breakthrough Stories of 2016

December 19, 2016

2016 is indeed a crazy roller coaster ride, and just before it ends, let’s take a quick throwback as we list some of hits and misses of 2016!


A break from the medal drought

The PH nabbed its first Olympic medal again after 20 years when Hidilyn Diaz bagged the silver medal at the women’s weightlifting category.


Veteran actress Jacklyn Jose bagged yet another Cannes award for the Philippines. In September, we got our very first Golden Lion with Lav Diaz film, Ang Babaeng Humayo.



Most-Awaited Break

In 2016, Leo and Jackie finally got their first Academy Award and the whole internet world cannot be any happier!



Biggest Break Ups

Not the best part of the year but worth remembering - for the lessons and heartbreaks. This year, Angelina filed for divorce, Chloe left baby Beckham, Gaga ended her 5-year engagement and looks like Bella wouldn’t have another good weekend! More? Guitar princess shook it off with Swedish DJ, dated a villain, and then called it quits just before the year ends. Crazy, crazy year, the internet is shookt!



Breaking Boundaries

Filipina Beauties continue to conquer the international pageant scene. After Pia bagged the Miss U crown in 2015, the gorgeous ladies are at it again, getting crown after crown - from Nicole Cordoves, Ms. Grand International First Runner Up; to Kylie Versoza, the newly crowned Miss International.


With the winning streak, the most prestigious international pageant is finally happening in the Philippines again, after so many years! And we just can’t keep calm!



Breaking Through, Again

Well, not exactly the same, but it quenches our thirst for some magic! The famous wizardly world is back on the big screen, this time without the boy who lived, as it dates back almost 7 decades in the past.



This year, we break the 13 long years of waiting as the sequel to our favorite missing fish swimming movie swam far and wide!


The internet went crazy in 2015 for our return to the galaxy far, far away. This year is even crazier as they give us missing stories from the whole movie franchise. Gear up, rebels!


The entertainment news this year is nothing short of buzz and, err, entertainment. From heartbreaks to breakthroughs, these stories kept us and the whole universe talking nonstop - sharing it again and again on and off the virtual world. Years from now, which of these 2016 headliners will you most likely remember?



Give yourself a sweet break this Valentine’s Day.

Taken or single, we’ve got you covered!
