While the official nominations for this year’s TVB Anniversary Awards <萬千星輝頒獎典禮> will not be unveiled until November 29, Hong Kong media leaked a partial list on November 27, revealing the artists eligible to compete for TV King and TV Queen.
The two categories consist of fifteen candidates each. As expected, this year’s most talked-about stars are all in the running, along with a few surprises. Singer Ivana Wong (王菀之) made the Best Actress list for her TVB acting debut in Inbound Troubles <老表，你好嘢!>. Fala Chen (陳法拉) is also included despite the fact that she has already left the company. Following her win at the TVB Anniversary Gala, Kristal Tin (田蕊妮) can now claim to be an official TV Queen nominee for her performance in Brother’s Keeper <巨輪>. Actresses from TVB’s golden days, Esther Kwan (關詠荷), Kathy Chow (周海媚), Christine Ng (伍詠薇), and Ada Choi (蔡少芬), took their places as heavyweight contenders, although the outspoken Sheren Tang (鄧萃雯) is visibly absent.
The nominations for Best Actor also do not disappoint. Both Francis Ng (吳鎮宇) and Chilam Cheung (張智霖) are acknowledged for their effort in Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲霄Ⅱ>, while Dayo Wong (黃子華) joins the fray with his long-awaited comeback Bounty Lady <My盛Lady>. Leading men from TVB’s three major year-end productions are also on the list. The most unexpected is likely veteran actor Lau Dan’s (劉丹) nomination for his portrayal of the stern but loving head of household Ma Fu in the popular sitcom Come Home Love <愛．回家>.
As a response to last year’s criticism, TVB will determine its TV King and TV Queen using both public votes and a professional judging panel. While some of the award hopefuls are generating a lot of noise, their fate is yet uncertain as evidenced by the results from the Anniversary Gala. The final battle will take place on December 16, and it may be one of the most exciting yet given the caliber of this year’s nominees.
