GQ Turkey Man of the Year Award Ceremony
Berk Oktay, Uraz Kaygılaroğlu, Merve Dizdar, Kenan Doğulu and other Turkish stars received GQ Türkiye awards at a ceremony held on Thursday in Istanbul.
On Thursday, December 1, the 10th GQ Türkiye magazine’s Man of the Year Award Ceremony took place in Istanbul. Turkish stars were happy to demonstrate their rather revealing outfits on the red carpet and accept awards from the hands of the organizers. The hosts of the ceremony were Ece Sukan and Tansel Ongel.
Berk Oktay, who received the “Turkish Screen Face of 2022” award, thanked his family and especially his wife Yıldız Çağrı Atiksoy for their support. Recall that now the actor is filming in the series “Ray of Light”, which is the popular TV show, but is not the biggest hit on Turkish air, so the award surprised many viewers.
The famous singer Kenan Doğulu, who was chosen as “Icon of the Year”, received the award from the hands of his wife Beren Saat. On stage, he made a moving declaration of his love for his wife, stating that some feelings never end. He also thanked his audience, who continue to support him after 30 years on stage.
The theatrical production “Amadeus“, starring Kerem Alışık, Dilan Çiçek Deniz and Tansu Biçer, received the award for “Outstanding Achievement of the Year”.
Merve Dizdar, known to viewers from the series “Apartment of the Innocents” was chosen as “Woman of the Year”. She received the award from her co-star in the musical “Alice in Wonderland” Şükrü Özyıldız. Merve thanked the women who changed her life and wished that next year would be a year without violence.
Çaglar Çorumlu received the award as “Best Comedian of the Year” from the hands of the famous actress Gülse Birsel.
Uraz Kaygılaroğlu was named the “Best Actor of the Year”, which surprised the fans of Turkish show business a lot. The series “Bad Penny”, in which he starred this year, was unsuccessful and was canceled due to low ratings. Many were outraged, pointing out that there were far more successful actors who received great audience recognition this year.
Traditionally, it has not been without controversy. Uraz Kaygılaroğlu received his award from the hands of Cem Yilmaz. In his speech on stage, he admitted that he had gone through difficult days when his ex-wife Melis Isten had an accident. Then he realized how empty all their worries and anxieties of everyday life. At this time, the presenter Tansel Ongel and Cem Yilmaz were discussing something behind his back, and Cem laughed. Uraz turned to the comedian and reproached him: “I’m talking about serious things.”
According to fans, many awards have surprised them, and somewhere upset them this year. But by tradition, there were many discussions of the incredible outfits in which Turkish stars came to the ceremony. It seems that this is what it will be remembered by the Turkish public.
