Yong Chavez covers the Oscars for the second year in a row

By Media Newser Philippines | Saturday, March 08, 2014

After landing back-to-back exclusives with Matt Ranillo's lawyer (pork barrel issue) and Patricia Javier (Vhong Navarro fiasco) in February, Yong Chavez has once again proved that she's the go-to Pinay entertainment reporter in Hollywood -- representing the country for the second time in the recently concluded 86th Academy Awards.

Among the many highlights of her Oscars coverage include an interview with Filipino-American Robert Lopez, composer of the hit "Let It Go" and Frozen co-director Jennifer Lee.

Lopez, the first Fil-Am in history who took home an Oscar, thanked his kababayans during his red carpet interview with Chavez. "Thanks Filipinos! Pinoy pride!" he said. “I just want them to know that it doesn't matter what you look like, doesn't matter where you're from, if you work hard and pursue your dream, it can happen."
