Premios TVyNovelas 2017: Stevey's Follow-up on the Winners and Losers


Hi everybody!! 

I’m sorry that my follow-up for the big TVyNovelas awards show is so late (better late than never!, I hope!), but I did want to do a follow-up for anybody States-side who might be interested as to who was lauded as the best of their bunch this past year.  Without any further ado (and recognizing my own penchant for… uh, ‘loquaciousness’ (to put it kindly, it sounds nicer than ‘eye-strain and migraine inducing…), here we go!!

We’ll start with the biggie…

New Telenovela: A Que No Me Dejas Makes It To US Screens. Starts Monday, September 12, 2pm/1c. Synopsis And Cast

Looneyvision has finally deigned to air “A Que No Me Dejas” (“I Dare You To Leave Me”), the 2015 novela acclaimed by critics and audiences alike, in Mexico and the rest of Latin America. 

“A Que No Me Dejas” was the biggest winner at Premios TVyNovelas 2016. It scooped up best script and/or adaption, best direction, best cinematography, best musical theme, best veteran actress and actor for Leticia Calderón and Arturo Peniche respectively, best female antagonist for Laura Carmine and, dare I say, it should have received the best male protagonist prize too, because Osvaldo Benavides deserved it heaps more than any other nominee in that category. The same producer, Carlos Moreno Laguillo, and the same writing duo, Martha Carrillo and Cristina García, that gave us such gems as “Amor Bravío”, “Quiero Amarte” and “En Nombre del Amor”, now bring us this remake of Carla Estrada’s “Amor en Silencio” (1988).

New Telenovela: El Color de la Pasion, September 6th Debut

Marcelo y Lucia, our pretty protagonists
(not to be confused with SantMarc y Ana Lucia from 3xAna)

Next Tuesday, September 6th, is the 2-hour debut of El Color de la Pasión (The Color of Passion) at 7:55pm EST. After sitting for two years on Univision’s shelf, it replaces Narcos, which has been recapped by Countx during its 2-week run, in the 10pm EST slot.  

So far, there seems to be lots of interest in watching this popular telenovela, and also some interest in recapping it from: Delilah, dy77, Anna Nabil, Anita, Jardinera, and Cathyx. I would also be interested in sharing a night with someone. If those listed are still interested, please email me and we can decide on a recapping schedule. If others are interested, please also email me. Gracias, amigas y amigos!

Un Camino Hacia el Destino-Week 26 (Aug 15, 2016) 2d Half

Luis has Pedrito in his clutches and is now going after Fernanda. He’s planning to travel under false passports with the baby’s name changed to Luis and his daughter as Luisa.  (Is there an egotist in the house?) Fernanda is not going to go willingly, just because he’s her bio-dad.

The only way she'd ever go with him will be for Luis to threaten her with never seeing her son again. (It’s not speculation, it’s a Sherlockian deduction—thanks, David.) What an agonizing decision for a young mother to make—leave the whole family she’s grown so close to and supports her, the love of her life, a bright future (in charitable works, not artistic excellence) in order to be reunited with her son and have to live with someone she's hated (although she was making inroads in her own mind to forgive him—but not necessarily love him) in a country and culture far away from where she belongs. Ay de mi. What a dilemma for us to have to watch in the last week of our travels on the Camino as it brings us nearer the Boda at the End of the Road.


New Telenovelas/Series Coming to Univision- Aug/Sept 2016

Hola Amigos!

Here’s an update on some changes coming in the next few weeks to Univision’s lineup, if you haven’t already seen the ads. Three new shows are coming our way. Two of them are not so new, as one is a popular telenovela that aired in Mexico in 2014, and the other already aired as a Netflix series last year. Keep in mind that Univision has been known to change its mind often, and last minute. No word yet on if Uni still plans to split Tres Veces Ana into 2 seasons (temporadas), but it seems they don't. If you would like to recap any of these new shows, please let Blog Mom/Jane/Melinama know.  Let’s go in order of Univision start dates…

Un Camino Hacia el Destino-Week 26 (Aug 15, 2016) 1st Half

In a short refrito, the unfried Luis Montero is seen escaping up the stairs of the prison so he can be with his daughter and grandson. [Lots of luck, Luis—I hope you trip and fall and no one can put you back together again.]

Carlos is fixing a meal in the cabaña for his little family. Marissa and Iggy interrupt and Mar asks Paco to take Pedrito out to play. Then she tells Fer about the fire at the prison and that Luis was roasted to death in the kitchen. Fernanda has a look of disbelief on her face.

Fer calls Amelia to tell her Luis is dead. It’s hard for her to believe, but it’s true. While she’s on the phone, Carlos, Marissa and Ignacio talk about Luis. Carlos loathed him, but wouldn’t wish such a horrible death on anyone. Fer finishes her conversation and tells the group Amelia isn’t going to cut short her honeymoon.

Iggy wants to ask Fer if she knows of any relatives Luis might gave. The three of them knew him best, but they are also the ones Luis hurt the most. He’s asking because if no relation claims the body, he’ll be buried in a common grave without a marker. Fer says, then, they need to do that. Marissa gently tells her if that’s what she wants, Fer will have to acknowledge she’s Luis’ daughter.

Fer goes outside to clear her head. All the awful confrontations she had with Luis get rewound and reviewed. Carlos comes out to comfort her. She tells him about all the times Luis asked for her forgiveness and a little affection and now it’s too late. Carlos reminds her Luis only caused them all harm and she shouldn’t feel guilty about not responding to his petitions for forgiveness.

Fer and her big heart realize he was a human capable of remorse and changing, but she wasn’t ready to forgive him and now he’ll never know. She feels terrible. Carlos holds her tightly.

Un Camino Hacia el Destino-Week 25 (Aug 8, 2016) 2d Half

Aplogies ahead of time for ruining a nice little nursery rhyme.
A nod to Kendra for the idea.

Oh where oh where has Pedrito gone?
Oh where oh where can he be?
With his ears cut long and his hair cut short
Oh where oh where can he be?

Oh where oh where has the little boy gone?
Oh where oh where can he be?
I think he went down to the landscaping site
To see what he could see
While his folks all reveled without a care

I think I saw him by the tractor
Playing and running around
While his folks all reveled without a care

But I just can't see him anymore
He just can't seem to be found
While his folks all reveled without a care

Who knows where he might have decided to go
Perhaps someone at Televisa will know
Maybe his real mommy came and took him away

Un Camino Hacia el Destino-Week 24 (Aug 1, 2016) 2nd Half

So, two of our bad guys are locked up in a prison, not unlike the one Fer was in. She’s feeling sorry for Luis, who insists on calling her Luisa, after himself, because she knows what prisons are like. Carlos and many on the Caray Patio would do not agree, after all the maldad he’s caused, and which Carlos keeps enumerating. Luis deserves to be where he is and he deserves to get the best treatment from Apolinaro and his gang.

Luis, on the other hand, was feeling great as he made arrangements to flee the country, leaving this daughter he’s been fighting for, for weeks, in order to avoid prison. With glee he believes he’s off to Taiwan holding onto a cheap little necklace (not unlike the one Felipe wanted to give Fer at the beginning of this story). Taiwan is pretty far away to try to recoup a daughter he didn't know he had for 20 years and to whom he’s caused nothing but pain and sorrow. How nice the getaway was foiled by the hardworking police force.

Of course, Luis wouldn’t be where he is today had Carlos not been able to recoup the box of documents proving that Luis had ruined his family’s bank. So much for listening at doors and overhearing conversations—now I’m all for it.

Luis is last seen vowing to get out of prison one way or another and give Fer the necklace. When it is taken from him by other prisoners, his one-track mind focuses on the necklace rather than thinking about becoming a model prisoner and serving his time.

It seems to me that Luis is feeling sorry enough for himself than for Fer to feel sorry for him, too. What will Fernanda do about her feelings for Luis? We can only wait and see.

Un Camino Hacia el Destino-Week 24 (Aug 1, 2016) 1st Half

First things first—Vivi, thank you for sharing the news of the passing away of MARIANA KARR. Besides being a great interpreter of many telenovela roles, I wasn’t aware she’d made so many films. Who could forget her in just about everyone’s favorites—Alborada and Pasión. A more recent role she had was in Amorcito Corazón as the villain, Jorge Luis’ mother, Beba.

I wonder what will happen to her restaurant, CarayCaray, or if it is even still in existence. Here is our recapper extraordinaire, Cheryl’s description of her visit.

Un Camino—It’s limping along with Lucero. We are united in sticking it out until the bitter end for our bad, very bad, terribly bad Luis and Mariana and rejoice in the reunion of Carlos and Fernanda. What of the rest? We will have to take a wait and see attitude, since the commenters are beginning to voice different opinions.

One thing we can all agree on, is the quality of the story and the presentation—due in great part to the casting, writing, filming, acting and direction. We hope it stays on the road until the last episode.

Un Camino Hacia el Destino-Week 23 (July 25, 2016) 2nd Half

Ultimas semanas means we are approaching the end of the road toward El Destino.
##We must help the writers stay on track. We must help them free Lucero, expose Diego, arrest him and get a truly deserving guy off the streets. Olivia must get into treatment. La Malquerida needs to don a see-through apron, grab the duster and a tequila and welcome Javier home au naturelle.

Un Camino Hacia el Destino-Week 23 (July 25, 2016) 1st Half

IF----THEN, SO---
IF the police find the box of filched bank documents tomorrow, THEN Luis, Solorsano and Alicia will face jail time immediately, SO the only things left to wrap up is how the couples will get paired off.
IF Luis is successful in charging Marissa with adultery, THEN how does he maneuver it SO Super Oh! doesn’t charge him in return.

IF Luis won’t sign the divorce papers, THEN Marissa will have to kill him, SO she can finally be rid of him (not likely, though).

IF Hernan suffers a real heart attack, THEN Mariana will nurse him as long as it takes for him to recover, SO she won’t lose her meal-ticket (lean though it might be).

IF Camila is found, THEN Fer will get a bottle of single-toned Clairol and do her hair over, SO she won’t look like a cast-off cast member at Fer’s wedding.

Un Camino Hacia el Destino-Week 22 (July 18, 2016) 2nd Half

Some things are heating up on the Camino, some things are cooling down, some folks are happy, some folks aren’t. Isn’t this just like the real world?

Don Fernando (QEPD) has walked out of the confines of his malady along the train tracks to heaven. (He’s in a better place now where he doesn’t have to hear the people around him squabbling over his fortune and he knows who he is.) There is a casual dress funeral.

Un Camino Hacia el Destino-Week 22 (Jul 18, 2016) 1st Half

Apologies for not attending to Caray Camino business. I didn’t get a new page up for the second half of the week, but we were unceremoniously dumped for a Univision spectacular—as though Un Camino isn’t spectacular enough. It was enough to confuse me. This new page will serve until this coming mid-week.

Now, where were we? Some of us are feeling more sympathy for Amelia, some much less sympathy for Pedro, none for Luis, sorry Alicia was dragged into his malfeasance, happy that Little Pedrito has two parents to play with, worried about Javier’s intentions, expect Camila to become a street kid, cautious regarding Marissa’s health and state of mind and seriously concerned about Don Fernando’s most recent crisis, but mostly we wonder what will IzzaFreeza do next. Seriously, it’s about time she got a new “luke,” everyone else has.

Un Camino Hacia el Destino-Week 21 (July 11, 2016)

Who has marked the most milestones along Un Camino?
In this humble opinion, it is Amelia. She has--
*Recovered from a near fatal accident that left her paralyzed from the waist down
*Left her suffocating, possessive husband
*Moved back into her family home and adjusted well to the luxuries it afforded her
*Recovered from her paralysis
*Secured an important position in her father’s construction empire and seems to be doing well
*Changed her hairstyle and wardrobe
*Stopped obsessing over Luis, her teenage heart-throb
*Is sorry for her treatment of her suffocating, possessive ex-husband
*Is sorry for her mistreatment of her darling daughter
*Changed her hairstyle again
*Has only slapped, cursed, or denigrated her evil-minded sister
*Helped keep the location of her sequestered father a secret for two years
*Has started to flirt a little with her suffocating, possessive ex-husband
*Has sudden feelings of jealousy seeing Marissa in Pedro’s arms, despite the innocent gesture
