Dabarkads Awards 2018 is the fourth edition of the awards ceremony that honors the best moments of Eat Bulaga!'s Holy Week special presentations for 2018. It took place at the Broadway Centrum on 7 April 2018.

The 2018 edition marked the return of the awards ceremony after going on hiatus in the previous year. It did not retain any category from former editions and instead featured three new categories.

The ceremony was done in the middle of the segment ACTually. It was hosted by Vic Sotto and Joey de Leon.

Overview

Unlike previous editions, the 2018 edition did not feature the traditional categories honoring the best actor, best actress, or the overall best story. Instead, it unveiled three new and unique categories–Hugot Line of the Year, Best Confrontation Scene, and Balde-Baldeng Luha Award–which recognize specific memorable scenes in the stories instead.

Because the awards ceremony was done in the middle of the segment ACTually, its runtime was much shorter than previous editions. Instead of the usual elegant attires, the hosts and the nominees were dressed in regular clothing in preparation for the game in ACTually. Since this year's ceremony was much more casual than the former editions, winners were asked to spin around with their forehead on the end of a bat for entertainment.

The voting system for the year's ceremony was also not disclosed.

Hosts

Below is a list of hosts who were involved in the presentation of the segment.

  • Vic Sotto

  • Joey de Leon
