Ruco Chan Crowned Singapore’s TV King a Second Time

Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) took home his second Best Actor win at the sixth annual StarHub TVB Awards in Singapore last night, becoming the first actor to be crowned Singapore’s TV King two years in a row.

The annual awards ceremony, which celebrates TVB productions in Singapore, was held at the Marina Bay Sands Singapore on October 24. Hosted by Carol Cheng (鄭裕玲), Amigo Choi (崔建邦), and Derek Li (李浩林), a total of seventeen awards were handed out to over twenty TVB artists.

Winning Best Actor for his role as the Eleventh Prince in Captain of Destiny <張保仔>, Ruco Chan had set a record last night for being the first actor to win Singapore’s TV King two years in a row. He won the same honor last year for his performance in Ruse of Engagement <叛逃>. Captain of Destiny, which also stars Tony Hung (洪永城) and Grace Chan (陳凱琳), won My Favorite TVB Drama. 

Liza Wang (汪明荃) was crowned as this year’s TV Queen for her performance in Limelight Years <華麗轉身>. Upon receiving her award, she thanked her costar, Damian Lau (劉松仁), for supporting her.

Rosina Lam (林夏薇) was in tears when she was awarded the Supporting Actress honor for her scene-stealing role in the idol drama Young Charioteers <衝線>. Vincent Wong (王浩信) landed his first Supporting Actor award for his performance in last year’s Tomorrow Is Another Day <再戰明天>. Costar Lawrence Ng (吳啟華) also took home a My Favorite TV Character award for his starring performance.

Tracy Chu (朱千雪) won Most Improved TVB Artist for her work in Tomorrow Is Another Day, Smooth Talker <以和為貴>, and The Fixer <拆局專家>. Former Miss Hong Kong Grace Chan won Best New TVB Artist and a sponsored award, Tokyo Bust Express the Sassy Award. Onscreen-turned-real life couple Priscilla Wong (黃翠如) and Edwin Siu (蕭正楠), snagged the My Favorite TVB Onscreen Couple award with Madam Cutie On Duty <師奶MADAM>.

In the variety category, Tony Hung’s North Korean adventure Not Far But Away <在那遙遠的地方> won My Favorite TVB Informative Program. Golden onscreen couple, Liza Wang and Adam Cheng (鄭少秋) garnered the My Favorite TVB Variety Show Hosts award for their nostalgic musical program Sunday Songbird <Sunday靚聲王>, which also won My Favorite TVB Variety Program.

    However rubbish the ending is or rubbish the series is or rubbish overall it may be, Ruco is the deserving winner because without him and his fine performance, the series would have been a rubbish trash compost heap of waste.

    Thank you Ruco!!

      SPOILER ALERT!!!

      I kinda like the twist earlier in the drama. Ruco was so convincing as the baddie leading us on that he planned to borrow Mui’s hand in killing CPT. I thought that was pretty brilliant.

      @funnlim: Totally agree. COD would have been a major flop without Ruco. Like many others, I watched COD only becoz of Ruco. And he is so deserving of this Best Actor award in this Starhub TVB award. In fact I was surprised that he won again this year as no actor/actress has won it back-to-back. Plus knowing how political TVB is, his win was a pleasant surprise for many of his fans. So he has made history! He was the saving grace so he totally deserved this award. I am so loving this man and his 11th prince Man Ho character. Totally got poisoned by him!! 🙂

    Sigh.

    Best New TVB Artist
    Grace Chan — Overachievers, Raising the Bar, Captain of Destiny

    Perhaps, YES and the one which sets her back. Since Tracy Chu is most improved, I suppose I do agree she is the best new artist. I mean who else?

        @funnlim tavia won a fave character role, nothing to do with acting ability or depth of character , ;just need lots of fan support. As for Ruco not getting a fave character award as well as BA, suffice to say he was robbed again. In previous years the BA came from one of the fave characters unlike this yr. Liza didn’t win a fave character award either. Fans wouid hv voted in both categories so it’s strange this yr for them to not win the fave character just becos they won BA.

        @isay: Yeah, I was wondering why Ruco didn’t win the My Fave Character award. Every year, the Best Actor winner would come from 1 of these Fave Characters. Surely, his fans would have voted him in both categories. Of coz, Best Actor is the most prestigious award but please don’t rob him of what he deserves. Anyway, I suppose Starhub and TVB can change the rules of the game as they fancy.

        @lml1977 that is right. It is very annoying that they had to rob Peter to give it to Paul. No way can i believe that 11th prince didn’t win a fave character award. I would think this character is easily one of the most popular out of all the 15 (?) nominees in this category if not the most popular. Anyways the BA is the top prize and the Fave Character award is just a consolation prize. We’ll just take it that 11th prince is the implied winner of fave character award too.
        Yes ! so proud of Ruco for winning the BA award back -to-back. We never thought it was possible especially since Ruco doesnt have a strong backer in the management ranks. But he was really outstanding as Man Ho no doubts about it. Really a well deserved winner!

        @isay: Yeah…agree with you. Ruco does not have a strong backer in TVB. What he has achieved thus far is through his sheer hardwork and talent. Good roles, big productions do not fall on his lap automatically. Of coz, I am thankful to Amy Wong for casting him as the male lead in The Other Truth in 2011 which catapulted his career to leading man status in TVB. I only wish that he will be cast in good dramas with co-stars that are in the same calibre as him. All these years, he is cast either in poor scripts and/or with not-so-great actors/actresses.

      @funnlim Tracy chu is sweet in that prison drama. She is better than grace…the most improved should go to Tracy.

      Ruco’ role as baddie in Eye in the sky is convincing…he portrayed a baddie well. As a viewer, I felt heartache for him not getting to enjoy a happy family.

      As 11th prince, he is definitely my hero. Congrats on winning twice in a row.

    Congratulations Ruco !!! … im also diligently voting in the Malaysia Awards everyday, hopefully the results will be good.

    at least Kenneth Ma and Noblesse Oblique has a nomination in the Singapore awards … kenneth is not even nominated in the malaysia awards, neither does noblesse oblique have a nomination =(

    Ruco’s character Zheng Lik Hang in Eye In The Sky has no nominations either in the malaysia awards =( … so there is no choice but to pour all the votes into Captain Of Destiny.

    happy that Eye In The Sky win some awards, especially the themesong.

    Tomorrow Is Another Day is also in this year’s awards?

      @anneyen yes , also Overachievers as they did not meet the cut off date last yr i think. Ruco’s win was well deserved. We all saw for ourselves how he acted his heart out in COD. Fans like me who spent days and nites voting for him are elated with joy! Congrats to Ruco! Hope you win big at astro and HK too.
      Yeah it’s so unfair why some people hv 2 nominations in the fave character category but Ruco who performed well in Eits has only one. Guess the organisers dont what him to win 2 prizes in this category. I’m also shocked that Kenneth has been dropped completely from Astro voting.

      @anneyen ya..same thought with you, im surprised that for the star awards malaysia, noblesse oblige is totally left out and ignored. i thought that series released early this year is considered pretty good and kenneth ma is not bad in it. i remember the drama is quite entertaining. tomorrow is another day is in singapore’s awards this year because the series only aired in singapore this year while it has been aired in hong kong and malaysia last year.

      @isay @vinceboy … oh yah, i remember that starhUB awards was some time around June or July last year, but its October this year … its really a dissapointment to a TVB fan like me that my favourite dramas most of the time don’t get nomination in the star awards … if not mistaken, I think was not nominated last year … I remember correctly was not nominated at all for any category although it was the most popular first hslf year drama, ruco’s best actor nomination in Malaysia was for that year … and this year, totally nothing for , and no ruco nomination for despite being so popular … well, since that is the only option available, no choice but to put everything in

      the star awards Malaysia just like to cut away all the ‘mature’ , ‘sophisticated’ and ‘serious content’ dramas from their nomination =( … guess they think that the market here prefers light hearted and shallow minded dramas, which may be true … probably my preference is a minority here =P

    Liza Wang and Ruco Chan are well deserved winners but some of the other winners, I am not too happy about! Linda Chung winning my fav character has got be a joke. her bulging eyed madam was SURE loved by everyone. LOL. The TVB songs are going downhill hence the Eye in the Sky theme winning, it was not a good song!

        @isay Linda is very popular in SG no doubt but she won the fave character for Tiger Cubs 2 which was her worst performance actually. If it was her character in the Limelight Years then it is much more deserving.

    Could Ruco have chosen a gawdier suit and tie??!! It took all his handsomeness away. I thought Kenneth looked neat and handsome, Lawrence looked dapper in his tux, the best looking male was Tony, he looked very handsome that night.

To me, he is the embodiment of an almost perfect guy — good looks, talented, great body, althletic, genuine, sincere personality and a good person. He can do no wrong in my eyes ! 🙂

    TVB might not give BA to Ruco this year even though he is well deserved. Ruco might only get the favorite character award for the 11th Prince. The BA award might go to Wayne, Bobby or Anthony. For some reasons, He is not as popular in HK as in Singapore and Malaysia.

    • Profile photo of isay isay replied:

      @etnngo I don’t think that is a reason. It’s probably TVB’s policy to reward the seniors over the younger ones, sort of a hierarchy thing. Personally I think it’s easier to act as a villain than a good character. A good character in the hands of a incompetent actor will come across as bland. Conversely an incompetent actor may be OTT in villain roles but I think it’s easier to be an OTT villain than to make a good character believable/interesting.
