As TVB’s # 1 Earner, Kevin Cheng Kicks Michael Tse Aside to Reign as TV King

The 2011 TVB Anniversary Awards will be held on December 5, 2011. Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) and Michael Tse (謝天華) were the hot favorites in the TV King race this year. Portraying an uncouth lawyer in Ghetto Justice <怒火街頭>, Kevin Cheng’s acting was praised to have improved immensely. In addition, critically acclaimed mainland drama, Bu Bu Jing Xin <步步驚心>, received wide popularity, boosting Kevin’s recognition through the stratosphere! This year, “Poisonous Kevin’s” luck turned around, allowing him the chance to return to mainland each week to earn money. It was expected that Kevin will even replace Moses Chan (陳豪) as TVB’s top earning artist! 

In order to retain a new “Golden Egg,” TVB executive, Virginia Lok (樂易玲) pulled out all stops to convince TVB management to give Kevin Cheng the TV King title. “Laughing Gor” Michael Tse could only accompany the Best Actor race and be happy for someone else! 

Kevin Cheng’s Chances of Winning Are High 

On November 10th, TVB revealed the nomination list for the upcoming Anniversary Awards. The race for TV King and TV Queen were the most popular awards categories. The list of the 15 Best Actor nominees included Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), who won the TV King title the last consecutive years. Unfortunately, Wayne’s Forensic Heroes 3 <法證先鋒III> was not a big hit and his chances of winning the TV King title for the third time was defeated. In addition, Yes Sir, Sorry Sir’s <點解阿Sir係阿Sir> Moses Chan and Men With No Shadows’ <不速之約> Raymond Lam (林峯) admitted that they were only accompanying the Best Actor race.

Early Favoritism for Michael Tse Slipped Away 

TVB secured Francis Ng (吳鎮宇) to costar with Michael Tse in film, Laughing Gor, Potential Criminals <Laughing Gor之潛罪犯>. TVB’s favoritism towards Michael was obvious and his apparent domination as the TV King was almost guaranteed initially. However, Kevin’s mainland drama, Bu Bu Jing Xin, became a popular hit last month, resurrecting “Poisonous Kevin’s” career. Over the last few months, Kevin had the opportunity to travel to China each week to earn real money. Last week, Kevin appeared in functions in Hongzhou, Beijing, and Wuhan, earning nearly $300,000 Yuan per event in appearance fees. In one week alone, Kevin earned $1 million Yuan! Kevin’s luck turned around completely and was estimated to overturn Moses Chan as the top money-making actor at TVB! 

Aside from bringing in additional income from promotional events, Kevin’s filming fees increased tenfold, jumping from past fees of $10,000 Yuan to current fees of $160,000 Yuan per episode. After filming mainland drama Palace Spy Video <深宮諜影> in Shanghai in October, additional mainland companies invited Kevin to partake in new series. Committed to filming Ghetto Justice 2, Kevin will be unable to film dramas in China until December. Placing TVB’s priority first under all circumstances, Kevin gave face to the company. 

Kevin Loved By Virginia Lok

Becoming the new “Golden Egg,” Kevin was one of Virginia Lok’s beloved artists. Due to his astonishing ability to generate money, Kevin once again became highly favored. Ms. Lok put in her best efforts to back Kevin’s chances of winning the TV King award. Michael Tse was fortunate to receive the support of TVB executive, Tommy Leung (梁家樹), who believed that this will increase promotion and box office draw for the release of Laughing Gor, Potential Criminal’s theatrical release in December 2011. 

TVB executive support for the TV King winner was important; however, the company valued popular opinion as well. In the past, the winner was largely determined via TVB executives’ votes, while this year, audience’s votes were the last determining factor. This placed the favor in Kevin’s hands, who possessed a large number of fans in China. After one week of voting on TVB.com, Michael Tse’s top position was edged out by Kevin Cheng, who surged to number one in both the Best Actor and My Favorite Male Actor awards categories. In the Best Actor poll at TVB.com, Kevin received 38% of votes, Michael Tse received 25% of votes, and Wayne Lai received 8% of votes. 

Fala Chen Pulls Her Magic 

The TV Queen race was a sole battle between Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) and Fala Chen (陳法拉). Virginia Lok highly favored Fala and to overturn Myolie, adjusted the nomination list. This year’s Anniversary Awards set up a new rule to restrict only one nominated series for each artist. Instead of being nominated for her role in Ghetto Justice, Myolie was nominated for her performance as the evil empress in Curse of the Royal Harem <萬凰之王>, weakening her votes in the Best Actress Award race. However, the finale of Curse of the Royal Harem will be aired two days before the TVB Anniversary Awards take place.

In addition, OTO massage chair was this year’s TVB Anniversary Awards online voting sponsor. As OTO’s spokesperson and appearing in the OTO ad placed before the voting page, Fala possessed the advantage of having the exposure. OTO sponsored over $1 million HKD in advertising fees and requested that Fala maintain a high number of votes. The timing favored Fala, who possessed a high chance to win the Best Actress Award.

Artists Speak Out for Their Favorites

The battles for TV King and TV Queen were getting heated, with different supporters emerging for Kevin Cheng and Michael Tse. The ever popular Wayne Lai and dark horse candidate, Raymond Lam, also had their share of supporters, making the battle become increasingly fierce!

Chapman To (杜汶澤): “There were so many episodes to the Laughing saga, which made the character very well known among the audience, increasing Michael Tse’s chance in winning.”

Raymond Lam (林峯): “Forensic Heroes 3 received good ratings and word-of-mouth. I have always felt confident in Wayne Lai, so I pick him!”

Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣): “Earlier, I collaborated with Myolie Wu and felt that her acting was very good. She portrayed her roles in Ghetto Justice and Curse of the Royal Harem very well this year.”

Tavia Yeung (楊怡): “I think Fala Chen has a good chance, since she improved a lot and matured very quickly.”

   

Jayne: The article makes a convincing argument that Kevin Cheng now possesses the highest chance in winning the Best Actor award this year. Giving him the Best Actor award will only add to Kevin’s market value and increase his advertisement fees.

    wow, Kevin is differently getting more popular and richer by the minute. I am happy for him and can honestly say.. he has improved so much in his acting. Really love him in GT andBu Bu Jing Xin.

    I saw the Fala ad and thought it was maybe just my phone. It might give her a little advantage but even with that, she’s not leading in votes right at this moment. Myolie is currently beating her for Best Actress, and Myolie and Linda are both in front of her for Favorite Character. I’m hoping that Myolie and Linda both win.

    As it gets closer to the awards, the more I think Kevin has the bigger advantage of Michael.

      Michael only get advantage because TVB was milking Laughing and his competition was only his costar but when Kevin gain more fans after BBJX, his fans went up tenfold and all voted for him. His fees and values also went up tenfold so bye2 Michael.

        I think this year is weak compared to the past years race for TV Queen. But given this years performances then I do think Myolie deserves it “more” than Fala.

        I watched Myolie in the Curse of the Royal Harem and wonder what is so good about her acting? All I see her mouth and eyes trying to be evil but no convincing to me.

        One thing I don’t like TVB is favortism. Who do the most bootlick to the manage will guarantee for the win instead of their true acting. Same thing apply for Kevin Cheng too. He is good in Ghetto Justice but he is not best to get the title Best Actor.

        But I guess since all the Fadans and Siu Sang left TVB, they are limited in talents so of course they have to pick out someone…

        These awards don’t really mean much anymore as we have seen in the past… I don’t think that just because an artist wins that their market value will rise since many times the one that wins is the one that many don’t think deserve to win. Therefore, we all believe that the awards are rigged so I don’t think it is the biggest deal to win or not.

        @JN, I wouldn’t consider Myolie’s character evil though most of her actions are out of jealousy and insecurity and because she wants to be filial to her parents.

        To me Myolie’s character reminds me abit like Gigi’s character in WAB where most of her action was because of her mother and attaining a higher position in the palace would secure her security? Well that’s how I see it. So in my opinion Myolie is doing a great job in CORH.

        Have to say the series is picking up pace and is getting abit more interesting. Honestly though this year there hasn’t been one series that left me speechless alot of them were just average or good but not great.

        TVB needs to up their game!

      Actually, she kind of abandoned KC in the past two years after Burning Flame. After that KC wasn’t placed in grand productions or series that was promoted.

      I guess KC have to thank TVB, due to their growing disinterest in him, he was able to film BBJX and Mystery in Palace without much schedule ‘complications’ from TVB.

      Ghetto Justice was an unexpected gem for TVB. Kevin should be acknowledged for what he achieved in GJ and BBJX in 2011. Whether TVB is going to promote him again due to his cash cow status shouldn’t discount this fact.

        Kevin is not even the first choice for Law Ba. The original choice for Law Ba was Bowie Lam.

        So, yeah, Kevin was not that promoted after BF3. He was often casted in small budget series with not much promotion. It’s his luck that GJ was an unexpected success. His recent success was not due to TVB promotion. GJ was not a highly promoted series. BBJX is a mainland series that TVB has no hand in producing.

        Funn,

        I think bowie was brash and sexy in gem of life. But I’m not sure he would still be as attractive as law ba b/c Kevin’s good looks can make up for the sloppy appearance.

        As for ms. Lok, I have no doubt she loves KC too. But after seeing him basically play a male vase in BTROC, it’s obvious she did shift her attention to LF for a while now. It’s like Leo Ku’s old song “2nd most loved”.

        Definitely a blessing in disguise. His following roles weren’t “tailored” to him but I thought he improved much more in these roles. I’ve haven’t even watched GJ yet, and that’s his most praised role this year of TVB shows. However, I did just finish BBJX and Kevin was tremendously good. I think the time out of the spotlight has been good to him and allowed him to develop his acting naturally.

        Although his acting in GJ wasn’t Best Actor material, no other candidate seem close either. It’s a joke that Michael is his fiercest competitor since I thought Michael was terrible in LoO!

    ROFL before BBJX success and while LOO airing Michael is pegged to win but look at Michael now after Kevin’s popularity and value increased after BBJX. Kevin’s fees are low before but after he got famous with BBJX his fees hit more than 160,000 per episode. I told you that Laughing Milk will get stale 😛

    Let’s watch Laughing pushed aside by Francis Ng again in Laughing Movie 2 ROFL

      Has Micheal even filmed in CHina yet?? I think if Micheal does and acts in a popular series just like Kevin then he would definately get popular as well…I wonder why Micheal has not been to CHina to film yet?? Has he not had any offers???

      • Masaharu replied:

        HeTieShou, sometimes an actor does not film in mainland China doesn’t mean they don’t have offers. There’s this one actor who has 10 offers in just a few months span, but has to reject it all because of a full pre-arranged schedule. Sometimes you can’t have it all.

        Perhaps Michael is occupied with his duties for TVB(duties as Laughing Gor..haha) and has to reject dozens of mainland dramas – who knows? Michael’s fans might know more about this. Once he has free time, that time can be accommodated to dig-for-gold in mainland.

        Masaharu,
        Oh yea, that is true.. Thanks for reminding me about that. I hope that Micheal does go to China soon since there are many great productions that I would love to see him in. He is really out a lot if he doesn’t go to China to film. I think when his duties in TVB aren’t as heavy, he will go to China to participate in the productions there.

        HeTieShou, err be reminded again that not all mainland productions can be a “nationwide hit” the Bu Bu Jing Xin way hehe. Like any other nation’s productions, some dramas might suffer in quality and might be “boring” for some. However yeah, filming outside of TVB will give an actor a fresh breath of air and a full back account 😛

        @Masaharu,
        Of course I know that since I think I am way more familiar with China productions and other productions than you may be. There are many series from many different countries and there are good and bad from every country. Therefore, of course not all of them can be good. That goes for TVB, China or anywhere…Besides BBJX, there are many many other great productions in the past as well…You just have to give them a chance.

        I totally agree that filming outside of TVB is a great experience in terms of growing and learning as well as help them make more dough…

      • Masaharu replied:

        HeTieShou, yeah you might be more familiar with mainland dramas than I might be.

        TVB provided good basic experience for young raw actors and actresses, and prepares them with the “challenges” inside the industry including hectic inhumane schedulings, social skills, political understanding, media relations and you name it. However yeah, when certain stars have reached their “time” to “graduate” from TVB and fly to a higher ground, I wish for them to break away and expand themselves for their own future potentials 😉

        @Masaharu,
        Totally agree with you what you are saying. What is TBB??? It is good for any artist in HK to start at TVB. However, once they reach their height and all, they should leave TVB to expand their horizons. But it is great that some still maintain a good relationship with TVB since if it weren’t for TVB, they would not be where they are now.

    I think Fala does not deserve to win the Best Actress award. Her acting and her character wasn’t impressive. Kate and Bosco’s characters overshadow her character already. It would be nice if Myolie and Kevin win together in the same series. I don’t think Myolie’s acting in Curse of the Royal Harem is bad. From episode 14-15, Myolie has shown her improvement. Since her character will have a dramatic change from bad to good, I hope this can help her garn more votes.

    By the way, who is leading the votes in the Best Actress category? Fala?

    • AC replied:

      At the moment, Myolie is leading with 28%, Fala 24%, and Linda 14%.

      I agree with you. Fala got overshadowed by Kate in Lives of Omission, but I feel people only pity her character because of her ending (which I thought was stupid but that’s a different topic.. lol)

      I wanted Myolie to be nominated for Ghetto Justice too so that her and Kevin can win together, but I think her acting is good in Curse too- especially episode 13.

      LOL, no Kate did definitely NOT overshadow her in LoO. Kate too was horrendous. Bosco did a good job but can’t be entered into the Best Actress race 😉

  9. FourSeasons says:

    Nothing against Fala, but I seriously don’t think she’s ready for TVB Queen.

    Although Tavia’s performance this year is nothing special she along with Myolie are my top two candidates to win it. After Charmaine leaving TVB I only see those two as “big sister” material.

    Linda, Fala and Kate still have alot to improve.

    However based on performances alone this year, I really think it’s Myolie’s turn to win it. Yeah some people may not like her or her performance but I actually thought she did great. She handled her role as a lawyer in Ghetto Justice convincingly and I don’t mind her insecure – leading to turn evil role in CORH. CORH seem much more difficult to play as her character goes from one extreme to the next.

    Fala’s Role as Madam Jo could have had more character development that’s why I felt that this year if based on that role alone Fala should not win.

    As for best actor, my votes on Kevin. Did very well in GJ and made the character extremely likeable. Michael was also great but there’s no breakthrough as he’s played this character 1000000000 times (sarcasm intended).

    This is just my opinion some people may disagree but I have my votes on the GJ couple Myolie and Kevin!!!

    i want myolie to win. it is her year and so far this year, hands down she was the best actress. everyone else was kinda iffy and all their characters were the same. i think linda will win favorite female character or whatever it is called. as for kevin, i actually like him in ghetto justice. i usually hate how his characters are all the same little superman roles so it was nice to see this very down to earth lawyer. loved his chemistry with myolie too.

    as for guys…i am stuck. i love wayne lai and forensic heroes is by far my favorite drama this year. i also like ruco and i want him to win something because all these years playing evil and hateful, he finally landed a lead role. what a pity, i wish he was nominated for most improved actor as well. as for michael, laughing gor was good but the story was super slow now that i think back and the story was written so poorly. seriously, you cant have 3 falas in the world, thats just not fair for her to take all the beauty.

    I usually don’t reply here, but I have to agree for Kevin win this year. I didn’t really watch his TVB’s series this year except for GJ with Myolie. But I did watch BBJX many times. I have to say that I wouldn’t be suprise if his rates goes up because his acting in there was awesome! (actually, all the cast did!)! And for the girls, boy, in my opinion, I believe Fala, Linda, and Kate still need alot of improvements…There’s not yet a breakthrough character they’ve played in my eyes yet especially this year. I think Tavia and Myolie are the top two contenders for the award, but I think it’s definitely Myolie’s chance to win. I hope that she can take it home with Kevin! Hopefully, they’ll walk the carpet together! XD and accept the award together toO!

And I definitely don’t watch the drama because HK stars are in it…LOL…I usually randomly come across something that I see interesting then I’ll watch it…But i HAVE to say that Kevin definitely pick the correct project this time!

        @Miss unknown,
        Glad that you are watching other series besides just TVB. Back in the days, I watched mostly TVB, some ATV, Taiwan and some series from China since China did not make many series back then. However, ever since after the mid 90s and after, I started to watch less and less of TVB. I then started to watch China, Taiwan, Korean and even Thai series. There are good and bad from every country so it is good to watch a range of them to see which series are good.

        I totally agree with you that Kevin choose the right series which is BBJX. I am glad that he made a lot of great friends from the drama too. I hope that they will act together again in the future as well.

I am glad that Kevin was in BBJX as well… I love the rest of the cast as well and have seen most of them act before already so it was great to see them all again…Was BBJX the only China series you have seen??

      Not yet. Kevin’s fee is still lower than both of Moses and LF. To happen that Mingpao when counting the LF’s income forgot his Chinese series which is 84 eps with more than 200k/eps as well as the concert tour he had in the beginning of the years. If counted all, he has about 24 mil this year. As for Moses, the Mingpao also forgot the upcoming Heaven Burn which can give him at least 800k. For Laughing dude, it’s said by reporter that he earned 800k for the Laughing movie, new one. Then Kevin, with 160k/eps is still lower.

    Kevin ! Kevin ! Kevin! – He should be rewarded for his hard work and improvement. I like “Laughing Gor” too – but i think Kevin deserve this award more then him as his improvement in “Ghetto Justice” is quite Obvious.

    I thought about Kelvin recently.

    You know, I think Kelvin has a natural roguish look because of his fish eye wrinkles and naughty glint in his eyes when he smiles.

    So when TVB casts him in scruffy, good-for-nothing, or overly serious characters, it plays up his rogue looks to the extreme or does his rogue looks no good.

    I think he succeed so well as Eighth Prince in BBJX because he was acting a gentlemanly character, but there was just something about Eighth Prince that one wonders whether he was a cunning rogue or an unfortunate gentleman. That lends the captivating element of thrill to Kelvin playing that role.

      Law Ba is very different from Kevins past gentlemen roles and Kevun got applauded by netixens for all his rough behaviours in the series especiallt the butt crack. If Moses play this role the breakthrough effect wont be as giod as Kevin because weve seen rough Moses before and Kevins acting better than Moses. Moses wont be able.to be as handsome and charming as 8th prince

    I hate Fala Chen so much! She is horrible! Honestly people only like her because of her looks, I asked my guy friends if she deserved to win and they said yes. I then asked them if she still deserved to win if she was ugly, they said no. I hope Myolie and Linda win. If Fala win’s I am so going to start a petition saying that she should’ve lost everything. Then I would probably right a strongly worded letter to Virginia Lok and Fala Chen. Telling her how much I hate her. Uggghh I was also very shocked to see that Fala has over 2 million listeners, uggh! I really don’t like Fala! Myolie and Linda FTW!

      I’m a Myo fan. I don’t hate Fala, but I agree that without her looks and rich boyfriend, she is quite plain. Her acting is nowhere near Best Actress standard. She can’t even say her lines naturally in her dramas cuz she still has a bit of an accent. If she wins, I’ll join your petition! Myo all the way!!

        It is not just Fala but any actress without all of the make up, money and other expensive packaging, they are just like any normal looking citizen if not worse in some cases. We all saw Fala with little or no make up and she looked not inferior to even some average looking citizen. Anyways, with looks aside, her acting is still not good enough to win any award in my opinion.

    Do you guys really think there are only 4 actresses (Myolie Wu, Fala Chen, Linda Chung and Tavia Yeung)competiting for Best Actress Award this year? There are some other excellent actresses in this year’s drama series, such as Maggie Cheung (Forensic Heroes 3) and Jessica Hsuan (Curse of the Royal Harem). Both of them are excellent in their acting, much better than those 4 mentioned on this forum. Unfortunately, they are not on the “TVB’s Promotion List”. We are voting for Best Actress Award (the actress with best acting), not the most popular actress promoted by TVB.

      Don’t think Maggie’s role is that impressive though? As for Jessica I like her in CORH however there are times when she seems some what unnatural with her speech. She suits more with modern series.

    Still hoping BBJX will arrive in DVD soon. I really like Kevin in Ghetto Justice. True, it may be due to the script which gave us an interesting character but Kevin’s willingness to go the extra mile with an ‘unhinged’ performance to bring Law Bar’s character to life is very refreshing from the usual Kevin Cheng we’ve seen. There are exceptional and naturally talented character actors who can bring to life any characters warranted of them but these are few and far between. Then there are the good actors who are waiting for the right script and character to propel them into recognition in the public’s eyes and I think Kevin falls into this category. They may be what we call mediocre but watchable in their portrayal of various roles but there is the combination of the right script and suitable character to bring out their charisma. I don’t know if this is what true blue viewers and film aficionados will call good actors but if they are watchable and can occasionally give us a brilliant performance or two, i don’t really mind.
