Claudine, Jolina, or Judy Ann: Who Was the True '90s Kapamilya Queen?
Twitter is currently on fire trying to settle the debate.
(SPOT.ph) Disclaimer: We put those names in the headline in alphabetical order so please don't sue us! Controversial Twitter account AltABSCBN set local social-media feeds on fire in the early morning of August 11 after it asked the one trigger question sure to set '90s Kapamilya fans alight: Claudine Barretto, Judy Ann Santos, or Jolina Magdangal? Hold on to your feelings, stans.
AltABSCBN put up a poll for the three stars for all of Twitter to debate on—with a special shoutout to the equally unforgettable (but for some reason isn't on the list) Kristine Hermosa. If you think she deserves a spot on the poll, we direct your complaints to the OG tweet above. Santos is currently in the lead with nearly 40% of the votes—at a total of around 34,000—but there are six days left for the poll so we can't wait to see how the numbers change!
Whether you're a '90s kid or not, there's no way you haven't heard these names or seen their work—or at the very least realized that today's showbiz landscape is what it is today thanks to these epic Queens. Do you really think the entertainment industry would have survived the '90s without Jolina's butterfly clips? No, definitely not. Hyperboles aside, these stars ran so that Nadine Lustre, Kathryn Bernardo, and Liza Soberano could walk—and that's no figure of speech.
The local Twitter-verse appears to have stayed up all night showing support for their faves, putting up throwback posters, memes, and genuine arguments. It has been two decades but the tweets prove the '90s is alive and well. We round up some of the best points from the debate below, with each of the stars trending as of writing.
Several folks were in the race exclusively for Magdangal:
Macoy Dubs effectively leading the march.
Nobody explain to the kids!
All the kids in the know had one.
The '90s wouldn't be the same without her epic "Oo, kabigan mo ako. Kaibigan mo lang ako!" speech.
The Barretto fans weren't about to dissapoint either.
Who else rapped this in their mind?
Somehow this makes a good point.
Of course this came back to life!
Would you agree?
And the Juday fans came in to slay, too.
Never forget the force that was Mara Clara.
You'd best write this down.
While others were more diplomatic about their opinions.
Look, they were all amazing.
So which one's your pick?
