In usual fashion, this year’s TVB Anniversary Awards is no stranger to rumors and controversy of who will ultimately awarded the TV King and TV Queen title. To create a bigger buzz around the awards, TVB is utilizing the one vote per person system.

In order to avoid the server crash fiasco during the live voting at the 2012 Miss Hong Kong pageant, TVB executive, Sandy Yu (余詠珊) explained that they will open up voting to 2 hours and announce the winner live. An insider claims, “Last time TVB only allotted 10 minutes for voting, causing the servers to crash. Yu, not wanting to lose face again, is carefully planning how to do this successfully without the embarrassment of last time. Most likely they will allow 2 hours for viewers to vote starting at the beginning of the show, so they can announce the winners at the end.”

The insider continues, “For promotional purposes, TVB is going to arrange for the top 5 contenders for the TV King and Queen award to be on stage while they announce the number of votes live. Unfortunately it can be very embarrassing for the artist with the lowest number of votes, so they are all very nervous and trying very hard to get support from their fans and relatives.”

Sources reveal that the artists with the most chances of winning are, in no particular order:

TV Queen

Kate Tsui (徐子珊)– Highs and Lows <雷霆掃毒>
Tavia Yeung (楊怡)– Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles <名媛望族>
Myolie Wu (胡杏兒)– Ghetto Justice II <怒火街頭 II>
Linda Cheng (鍾嘉欣) – Witness Insecurity <護花危情>
Fala Chen (陳法拉)   – Queens of Diamonds and Hearts <東西宮略>

TV King

Bosco Wong (黃宗澤)– Witness Insecurity <護花危情>
Raymond Lam (林峯)– Highs and Lows <雷霆掃毒>
Wayne Lai (黎耀祥)– The Confidant <大太監>
Kevin Cheng – Ghetto Justice II  <怒火街頭 II>
Moses Chan (陳豪)– The Last Steep Ascent <天梯>

Kenneth Ma Sacrificed in TV King Race

Bosco Wong and Linda Chung’s award chances have been greatly improved due to the their drama, Witness Insecurity, topping as the number one drama in ratings year-to-date. Witness Insecurity also salvaged Bosco’s earlier negative image since breaking up with Myolie Wu earlier this year. Avoiding each other since splitting, the ex-lovers will share the stage at the TVB Anniversary Awards.

It is rumored that in order to promote Bosco Wong, TVB Executive, Virginia Lok (樂易玲) will sacrifice Kenneth Ma (馬國明) as the Top 5 in the TV King awards race. Despite 2012 being a spectacular breakout year for Kenneth with his highly rated, The Hippocratic Crush <On Call 36小時>, the 38-year-old professed he preferred cash over winning awards.

      That’s not true. Myolie said in an interview that she, Fala and other members who went to England and France filming the drama, will return in time to attend the award ceremony.

      Also in that interview was asked if she was ready for the award, referring to the dress that she will wear.

      The ceremony or anniversary that is air in November 24, in that she and the others they are not able to attend.

    Fala? Really? Are you kidding me? If this is the final top 5, I’m disappointed to see Fala instead of Michelle Yim even though I like Fala.

    Looks like Kenneth will have to wait once again if this is true. I haven’t seen either The Hippocratic Crush or Witness Insecurity so I can’t say whether Kenneth or Bosco is better in their respective dramas.

    I don’t think Fala will be in top 5 but her place belongs to Michelle. With The Confidant now, Michelle won’t be missed out.

    Lolz, Txb really want SSSS to win something if this top 5 of female is true. But too bad for them, this SSSS is still very silent and not liked even with many promotions.

    For top 5 male, I think it’s reasonable to me.

    First of all. Raymond lam ‘s acting has a long way to go. Moses shouldn’t even be considered. How many dramas have he starred in the last year or two? He’s too into his coffee business. Bosco Wong’s acting has improved significantly but he doesn’t’ deserve TV KING. Kevin Cheng’s acting in Ghetto Justice was mediocre. It’s not as great as the first one. I would say this year Kenneth Ma’s acting has been the best. Although he always has this “sor jai” look to him. Damian Lau and Wayne Lai should be the leading contenders. Their acting is amazing!!! It doesn’t matter how old they are but then again TVB doesn’t base awards on skills . .

      What is so special with MM’s acting? He overacts sometimes and sometimes wooden. MM is just a junior (together with Bosco) to all others in the list and with his current status, being in top 5 Most Fave chac is too enough for him.

      Moses has 4 series aired this year, to answer you.

      • Uni replied:

        why are you calling Kenneth Ma , MM ? LOL.. There’s nothing distinctive about his acting. BUT in terms of story lines and dramas , he starred in the more interesting ones. Raymond Lam is always playing the bad boy or the rich boy. Sorry it was THREE SERIES not four. LOL But all of Moses dramas flopped.

      • Fox replied:

        MM = Ma Ming.

        Moses has Heaven burns, 4 for love, the one with Adam Cheng and Steep, 4 series.

        Lolz, wat year you are in? LF dun have any rich boy role this year. Bad boy? His role this year isnt bad boy as well. This year he has 2 roles, one is Chukot Leung who is not rich or a boy and the more famous one is Happy Sir, a laid back cop. If you even dont watch him, how can you judge his acting?

        This year in my opinion, being in top 5 most fave chac is too enough for MM for his characters. He has some interesting characters but his acting is very very so so.

      • kcabc replied:

        Should put it like this, MM “has a long way to go” before reaching LF, Moses or KC’s current status. He’s not even at Bosco’s level yet, look at how much producers pay them and see the difference.

      Well, MM impressed me a lot more than bosco -.- n his character in thc is better than bosco character -.- though, you could blame the silly storyline and silly ending for the reason why I think so low of WI.

      Agree that the race should be between Wayne n Damien, though I think Damien should win, purely on the acting.his character is different, whereas Wayne is a little bit repeating his safe role

    they should take kevin cheng out. His Ghetto Justice II was at the bottom 10 and low rated of all the other actors’ dramas. Kenneth deserves a spot up there since Hippocratic is in the top 5 dramas in ratings. if bosco can get a nomination, its unfair to Kenneth that they cut back his chance. i think maybe TVB thought Kenneth posed a real threat to Raymond cause KM’s character was a household name with the audience as well.

      But MM is ranting that his series aired too sooon so ppl forgot it already. They only rmb his newer one aka SSSS and it is nothing special or cant make noises after the erotic scenes.

      3K aired after THC and MM’s fans in same function for it with LF didnt make a theat to anyone.

      Cutoff KC? He is last year winner and Txb still consider his money brought to Txb. If MM can bring as much money as any in top 5, maybe he will have a seat. But his current price is even lower than Ron so he shouldn’t complain much and better to establish himself to be more valuable.

        what does MM’s status have to do with his acting? is that the only way you can attack him? there are decent actors that don’t polish shoes so they aren’t as highly promoted.

        i didn’t say much about LF but since you ppl want to start, i should of stated the fact that TVB probably favors in his rich bg, giving him more clout and promotion. his father sits on the same board as EEG Albert Yeung on some committee, they buddied it up and hooked him up a contract.

        Im saying about status of MM, you are saying about character. None of us saying about acting. Attack MM, if I like I can attack many things of him, from his AV habit to his frequency of mentioning about old ex to so so acting with some overreactions and wooden face sometimes. Or we can talk about how he often ranting and comparing with others to pull others down.

        Rich background is the only thing you can attack LF? LMAO. You say I bring down decent actors, so who are they. Yes there aremany decent actors who dont polish executives, but I bring down none of them. So you failed so badly.

        no 7 days was a 2011 production. But it was aired early like in january. I know he was but that was an example like if we switch and say that LOO aired in January and 7 days around august/september and it was 7 days that he got nominated for, then I wouldn’t have supported him to get the best actor award. Because i didn’t find his role in 7 days to be any special.

        i love Maggie Siu…she’s one of my fav too (like Michelle) and i actually own many series of both of these actresses (re-watched many times too). at the moment, not too many of Maggie’s scenes. but her character is taking shape as of what i watched on epi 11. and aiyah, i want CKK to like Maggie’s character but seems he likes Michelle. bleah~~~ :P

        So far I am not impressed with Michelle since her Cixi has yet to have anything much to do. It is Maggie that got my attention. I may not like how her empress is portrayed but she did fantastic within the context, the way she showed her concerned with prince gong, touch but not touch.. immediately knew she was in love with him. I don’t see anything great with Michelle. Give Maggie the role of Cixi and I am sure she would have shown more of Cixi’s inner turmoils and may even make me sympathise with her.

    Kenneth Ma is smart…take the money and run. Cash you can spend but a trophy just collects dust. Capable actors whether winning an award or not will still get good roles. Tom Cruise made a lot of money but never did win an Academy Award for acting although he was nominated for a few.

      It is not true in Hong Kong. If you get TV King or TV Queen awards, your can “sell” yourself at a better price to any production companies, especially in China. Myolie Wu was paid a lot better in Mainland China productions after she got her TV Queen award. Moreover, those TV Queens and Kings could get better remunerations in filming their ads and performing their shows.

    The best actor should either be:
    1) Damian Lau (SSSS)
    2) Wayne Lai (The Confidant)
    3) Moses Chan (When Heaven Burns; Master of Play)
    4) Kenneth Ma (The Hippocratic Crush)
    5) Raymond Lam (HAL) or Bosco Wong (Witness Insecurity)

    “Witness Insecurity” got the highest rating in Hong Kong because it was filmed when Hong Kong had typhoon signals – # 8 to 10 – for at least two days. People could not get out of the house, had nothing to do but just watched TVB.

    Michelle Yim did not even get nominated. Her acting was not outstanding so far in “The Confidant”, but her acting surely beats the acting of every single fadan in TVB.

    :/ Okay, That is so wrong for this year 2012 TV king/Queen:

    They need to take Kevin or Moses out and put in Kenneth, his acting in On Call 36 is good. I disagree with the Steed because I didn’t feel what so special about his acting there, and Kevin Ghetto II wasn’t his best. He lost his touch there.

    And why in the world is Fala even in the race. And Myolie in Ghetto II wasn’t her best either, it was mellow >> Michelle or Maggie deserve that spot over her, Fala. She does not deserve it with her acting skill this year and definitely not Queens of Diamonds and Hearts O_O

      • Funn Lim replied:

        No doubt Maggie Cheung in War & Beauty was my favourite, until TVB decided to junk-asize her character by making her character a concubine.

        Maggie Siu has been an actress far longer than Maggie Cheung and why I said she is a better actress is based on decades of acting credentials and consistency. Yes Maggie Siu’s way of speaking can be a tad annoying but body language wise, her eyes, her action, all speaks volumes. Maggie Cheung tends to be annoying in the way she moves, she isn’t entirely consistent. In The Confidant, I believe Maggie Siu is far better than Michelle because I see there is something with her character and the way she emotes her inner turmoil, her pain, her frustration, the way she looks, moves, talks even if I do not like where her character is heading towards.

        Just a personal preference preference I suppose. I am still hoping for a maggie siu-deric wan reunion.

        Yea the concubine part, I did’t get since I don’t see the King loving her like that.

        I actually do not like Maggie Siu’s character in The Confidant (the drama is amazing), but it feel like she is just too good, the more nicer she is, the more I feel like the drama is trying to make her the good guy and Michelle the bad guy. If you get my drift.

      I am a great fan of Maggie Siu since her early acting days in Happy Ghost! But I doubt TVB will nominate her for her role in TC as she is no longer a TVB contract artist. Even with a nomination, her chances of winning is slim. BUT, to me, she is definitely a better actress in ALL aspects than the irritating over-the-top Fala in Queen of DAH; and annoying full-of-herself Myolie in GJ2.

        Maggie Shiu was not even on the top 10 nominees for Best Support Actress award. Shame on TVB!! How could TVB nominate Christine Kuo (“GJ2″), Eliza Sam (“Divas in Distress”) and Aimee Chan (“The Confidant”) for Best Support Actress? Christine Kuo’s acting was terrible, and Eliza Sam’s was barely acceptable. It was only her second drama series and first decent role. If she got nominated this year for Best Support Actress, she will surely get nominated for Best Actress in 2013! Aimee Chan’s role was not that heavy in “The Confidant”, why did she get nominated? Maggie Shiu (“When Heaven Burns” and “The Confidant”), Elaine Yiu (“Bottled Passion” and “King Maker”), and Selena Li (“Gloves Come Off”, and “The Confidant”) acted much better in their support roles than Aimee Chan, but they did not get in to the top 10. Shame!

        Aimee Chan was not the 1st lead actress in “The Last Steep Ascent”. Why was she nominated for Best Actress award? Maggie Cheung was the 1st lead actress. She was not amazing in the series, but Aimee was only a support actress.

        TVB do not make any sense these days. They don’t respect their good veterans; they only care about their newbies.

    What… Kenneth performed so well this year leh!

    And of course kenneth has to be humble and say he doesnt care for awards and will care for more cash. If he says he wants the awards pple will say he’s greedy, etc. if he doesnt get the award, he’ll be embarassed. The gratitude from getting a award
    Is different from getting a pay rise.

    But if he gives up his chance at a award, u think tvb is going to give him cash? No way.

    Between Bosco and Kenneth, I would say Bosco is the more talented one. He seems to exceed and do well in almost every genre of series I’ve seen him in. Kenneth on the other hand does well in dramatic roles but he can not do comedy at all….his role in RPG was just annoying he looked like a pervert when he was smiling….no offense he just tries too hard just like Moses does in comedies, can’t watch them.

    THC was a good series no doubt but is it the theme of the series that overshadowed Kenneth’s acting? I think so, his role was nothing too special sure he was pretty good I mean I think it’s the theme of the series that stood out rather than the acting itself so I don’t think Kenneth should get BA this year. Fave character probably.

    I heard Kevin is nominated for GCO instead, I quite enjoyed that series and his character but not really BA material same for Bosco’s character in WI he did great but his character was just kinda ordinary, he stands a chance in fave character.

    A majority of Moses’s series this year was mediocore he doesn’t deserve BA this year.

    It’s either Raymond or Damien for me. I wish Michael Miu was nominated though. Wayne is too overrated he’s been playing that same righteous dramatic roles since Rosy Business nothing new from him.

    The Best Actor list is missing Kenneth Ma. Now that has got to be bizzare. Kevin is a great actor, but his performance in G2 wasn’t as shining as it was in G1…as for Moses is good too but imo he is mainly included in the list because he is considered TVB’s ‘one/first brother’, so he has to be one of the nominated to avoid losing his face…

    That’s all my opinion. I think Kenneth Ma did a good job this year with most of his roles..don’t understand why he is missing out in the race if that’s the official top 5 list.

    I always felt the leading actor in WI was Paul Chun. They should have a veteran BA and have Damien, Michael Mui, Wayne Lai, Ha Yu and Paul Chun and have a BA for the younger ones. How are the younger ones able to compete with more than 25 years of acting experience?

    My vote this year goes to Raymond Lam, although he is not consistent all the time with good acting, I have always felt that he is the rare one who can handle acting (in dramas) while doing other high profile things like performing in concerts and acting in movies simultaneously. Ratings and script quality aside, he amazed me with his acting in Growing Through Life and Men with No Shadows whilst performing his first concert and acting in The Pearl & Emerald and The Perfect Wedding. And I thought he did well distinctively in all of those without going crazy. I think while working on HAL he had to perform concerts as well. I don’t think Kenneth Ma is near his league in terms of capability.

      Whilst I do acknowledge the fact that LF is hard-working, so are a lot of other artists. LF chose to become a singer, film actor and TV actor – no one forced him to – so of course he has to put in the extra effort. Not everyone wants to pursue multiple careers (and some have the self-awareness to realise their own strengths and weaknesses).

      The problem with veteran BA is that many “siu sangs” are almost at the stage of being called a veteran anyway (well, depending on how you define it); they’ve (nearly) been at TVB for a decade and some are 40+ already… Most veterans don’t need a joke of an award to consolidate their standing within the industry anyway; they’re well respected as it is.

      • my2cents replied:

        With due respect to the veterans I agree but when you compare them, it’s obvious there is no competition in terms of skills which is what we want to base on for BA. That’s what I meant so the award is a joke anyways.

        Yeah, it’s LF’s choice but the point is he can handle it and proves his capability.

        However, the Mingpao list is so unfair for Most fave female chac. Linda dun have a seat while someone has 2 seats. Such an unlimited love of Txb.
