Popular love teams Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil and Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo

MANILA - The popular love teams of Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil and Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo dominated the nominations for this year's PUSH Awards nominees, with nods in four categories.

The two teams are nominated for PUSH Like Group/Tandem (Facebook), PUSH Tweet Group/Tandem (Twitter), PUSH Gram Group/Tandem (Instagram), and PUSH Play Group/Tandem (YouTube).

ABS-CBN's entertainment website on Monday announced the nominees at this year's Push Awards, which aims to honor the country's biggest celebrity newsmakers and digital stars. 

Fans and netizens can start voting for their favorite stars up to September 11 at PushAwards.com

Last year’s first-ever PUSH Awards saw the tandem of Bernardo and Padilla dominating the top tandem categories. 

Like in last year’s format, celebrities who have a high influence on Facebook are nominated as PUSH Like Female Celebrity, PUSH Like Male Celebrity, PUSH Like Group/Tandem, PUSH Like Newcomer, and PUSH Like Music Artist.

The most retweeted, most favorited, most followed, and most mentioned personalities who can make anything trend on Twitter are also recognized in the competition as PUSH Tweet Female Celebrity, PUSH Tweet Male Celebrity, PUSH Tweet Group/Tandem, PUSH Tweet Newcomer, and PUSH Tweet Music Artist nominees.

Instagram users who have the most number of followers and engage their fans with their posts are also up for competition in the PUSH Gram Female Celebrity, PUSH Gram Male Celebrity, PUSH Gram Group/Tandem, PUSH Gram Newcomer, and PUSH Gram Music Artist categories.

Finally, famous YouTubers who create videos with the most hits will be honored in the PUSH Play Female Celebrity, PUSH Play Male Celebrity, PUSH Play Group/Tandem, PUSH Play Newcomer, and PUSH Play Music Artist categories.

The winners in these categories will then be deliberated on by a judging panel to receive the Push Elite Awards: Push Female Celebrity of the Year, Push Male Celebrity of the Year, Push Group/Tandem of the Year, Push Newcomer of the Year, and Push Music Artist of the Year.

Leading in the individual categories are Yeng Constantino, who is nominated in PUSH Like, PUSH Tweet, PUSH Gram, PUSH Play Music Artist, and PUSH Play Female categories; and Anne Curtis who is competing across the four PUSH Female categories.

James Reid and Vice Ganda are nominated in three PUSH Male categories, while Darren Espanto is nominated in one PUSH Male and two PUSH Music Artist categories.
