Realitatea TV gives out excellence awards

Realitatea TV’s fifth edition of its annual “Ten For Romania” award gala was held on Monday evening, hosted by leading journalists Mihai Tatulici and Melania Medeleanu. As in previous years, the TV channel nominated the best ten in a wide range of categories, including politicians, businesspeople, journalists, athletes, signers, actors and others. The great absence of this edition was ex Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, whose presence at the event had been announced several months in advance. Gorbachev was not able to be present because he is ill, organizers said.

Best politician of the year award was granted to President Traian Basescu, who secured a second term in office. Basescu did not attend the ceremony, as the TV channel is owned by one of the ‘media tycoons’ he blasted during his election campaign, Sorin Ovidiu Vantu.

Best journalist prize went to rival Antena 3 TV channel’s Mircea Badea, while best businessperson was granted to Ion Tiriac. Best actor was Florin Piersic and the best singer award went to Andra.

This year, the gala included three new categories: best city (won ex aequo by Cluj Napoca and Constanta), best high school (Mircea cel Batran National College, Constanta) and best Romanian brand (Borsec).

Excellence trophies were also handed out to leading political, cultural and sports figures, such as historian Lucian Boia, sportsman Ivan Patzaichin, gymnastics coach Octavian Belu, actress Olga Tudorache and others.
