Jakarta: Indonesian actor, Joe Taslim, star of ‘The Raid’ and international blockbuster movie ‘Fast & Furious 6’, took home the ‘Celebrity of the Year’ at the Yahoo OMG Awards with total of 30,624 votes. He defeated other nominees Reza Rahardian and Bunga Citra Lestari.

In his acceptance speech he said he was glad to receive the Yahoo OMG Award. “I want to say thank you for all who have voted for me, so that I can stand up here” he said in an emotional voice, while holding onto his trophy.

Despite his success, the 32-year old actor said he still doesn’t feel like he’s a big star even after receiving his award. “I’m still far from satisfied, there’s still more I need to chase in the world of acting” Joe said when he was being interviewed on the purple carpet. He told the assembled journalists he has firm ambitions to achieve more in 2014.

And in a message to all Indonesian actors Joe said, “I will always aim for the best movies. As actors we have to be able to star in good movies, not just one’s watched in Indonesia, but also overseas”.
