Netizens Rally to Make Kenneth Ma TV King and Suppress Raymond Lam
The one vote per person system to select TVB Best Actor and Best Actress has captured everyone’s excitement. Hong Kong online forums have been brimming with discussion, hoping to unite their votes to boost Kenneth Ma (馬國明) to TV King status and suppress Raymond Lam (林峯) from winning.
TV King Race is Between Raymond Lam and Kenneth Ma
The 45th TVB Anniversary Awards will take place on Monday, December 17. Hong Kong publication, Apple Daily, ran their own one vote per person poll to determine who are the favorite artists to win the awards. Current Apple Daily poll results show Raymond Lam to be the biggest fan favorite, winning 23 percent of total votes placed to-date. Bowie Lam (林保怡) received 18 percent of votes for his performance in When Heaven Burns <天與地>, while Kenneth Ma closely followed with 16 percent of votes for The Hippocratic Crush <On Call 36小時>.
Although Kenneth is trailing behind Raymond in votes, Hong Kong Golden Forum members wish to boost Kenneth to the TV King position. They rallied their votes to support Kenneth, instead of earlier favorite, Damian Lau (劉松仁), who was deemed unable to win the masses’ support.
When Kenneth heard of the rally to support him, he said, “I have to thank them. I’m happy that people are voting for me. I do hope to get more votes to close the gap in the final results. It’s not that I do not have confidence, but I am just facing the race with a regular outlook.”
Voted as TV King by Malaysian fans in the 2012 Astro on Demand Awards, will Kenneth be able to capture the Hong Kong majority to win TVB’s top award? Since Bowie Lam is not nominated in the TVB Top 10 Best Actor list, Kenneth may serve as Raymond Lam’s strongest opponent.
Charmaine Sheh Not Forgotten
Although Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) is no longer a TVB-managed artist and spent the majority of this year in mainland China, she remains highly popular in Hong Kong. For Apple Daily’s Best Actress poll, Charmaine led with 37 percent of votes for her performance in When Heaven Burns. Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) came in second place with 16 percent of votes for her performance in Witness Insecurity <護花危情> and Kate Tsui (徐子珊) snagged 13 percent of votes for Highs and Lows <雷霆掃毒>.
Charmaine is grateful for audiences support. “I’m very happy and moved. Audiences still have not forgotten When Heaven Burns and my character Yip Chi Yan.” Charmaine thanked all the people that have voted for her to show support.
Will the voting patterns of Apple Daily’s TV awards poll be any indication of the 45th TVB Anniversary Awards results?
