2008 Pinoy Gold and Platinum Record Awardees

ASAP '08 honored the Filipino artists (singers, dancers, instrumentalists and bands) whose albums attained Gold and Platinum status from December 2007 to December 2008.

Some interesting tidbits this year: Sarah Geronimo made a record-breaking 4 Platinum awards in one year; Marian Rivera is now a platinum awardee; Jay-R�s Soul in Love album (dubbed as the best album of 2008) did not achieve Gold status; Marian Rivera is the only kapuso star to have won a Platinum award in 2008.

Gold Award is given to the artist whose album sells 12,500 units and more. When it reaches 25,000 units, the artist will be given the highly coveted Platinum Award.

Here are the winners of Gold and Platinum Awards in the local music industry for the year 2008:
