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:
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>
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.
