Auds, awards in love with ‘Love’

Telenovela pulls 16 prizes, flies high in ratings

MEXICO CITY — Televisa telenovela “Amor Real” (Real Love) nabbed a 43.1 rating for its two-hour finale Sunday night, ranking it among the top eight novelas in Mexican history.

Show, set in 19th-century Mexico, also pulled 16 of 19 prizes for melodrama at the Califa de Oro entertainment awards Sunday, including producer of the year for Carla Estrada, leading actress for Adela Noriega and leading actor for Mario Ivan Martinez.

The rating lands skein in league with Televisa classics “Cuna de Lobos” (Den of Wolves) and “The Maria Trilogy,” three novelas starring singer Thalia. “Amor” bowed in June with a 26.5 rating.

Televisa, Mexico’s largest broadcaster, offered Estrada the option of extending “Amor” for another season. The producer, on a multiyear contract with the net, declined.

Instead, “Mariana de la Noche” (Mariana of the Night), produced by Salvador Mejia, bowed Monday in the primetime Channel 2 slot.
