• @hazel Many parents in my kids school is in their 40s. I think I am the youngest one. They r mostly doctors, lawyers, owns a company or college professors (elite). I think one parent (dad) is probably in his sixties or seventies. His son is seven or eight. Both parents are extremely talented and are elite college professors. This experience changed my thinking about a woman's fertility rate after seeing all these smart people whom are at least a decade or more older than me having children so late in their lives. When I was younger, I was constantly bombarded with messages like a woman's fertility rate declining, etc etc. I am doubtful now whether age is really an issue after this. Even back in preschool, my child's classmate parents were all older too.
  • @hazel - I don’t understand the negativity surrounding women who have late pregnancies. I have co-workers and friends who had babies in their late 30s and early 40s. It’s not a big deal. We are in the 21st century. Many women are choosing to have kids later in life because having kids is not like having kids back in our parents or grandparents’ time. Women are also more career-minded now too. And it’s not like they are having kids in their 50s.
  • @hazel My late mom had my youngest brother at 42 but he was the last kid and was the 9th one.
  • All these 40 year olds having babies. They'll be 50 when their kid is 10.
  • LOL. Cancel this shxt show! It should be renamed The Voice Entertainment Song Awards because all their singers get awards. EEG should stop going cause their singers don't even get major awards.
  • What a douchebag! No one cares about you or your ex-wife who is now happily married. Stop mentioning her!
  • @hazel agree that "TVB Awards have always been systematically biased towards siu sangs and fa dans and ignores veteran actors." I think Selena just recently got high audience recognition. Barack O Karma is one of a few dramas she was lead in & it got good ratings.
  • @bubbles23 I've always felt that Selena wasn't a "people person" at TVB, meaning that she didn't know how to network for more opportunities (I think she admitted it too). She was never a factor in the Virginia Lok, Catherine Tsang, or Stephen Chan promo triangle when most fadans and siusangs were and it contributed to her stagnancy. I thought she was for sure going to be promoted after Just Love cause she showed so much potential, but TVB never gave her the opportunities that they gave others. Even Leila Tong, who isn't really a good actress, in my opinion had more opportunities than her even though they were treated relatively the same.
  • @llwy12 Thank you so much for the insight! I wasn't aware of the overhaul (probably cause I'm a millennial LOL), but I vaguely remember some of the old awards. It's so sad that TVB chose neglect the veterans who deserved more recognition. Literally, no one cares about the newbie actors who are getting awards now. TVB can only blame themselves for driving away veterans and viewers.
  • @hazel you comment is so accurate I had to reply. Even before Nancy or Kristal Tin were lead in dramas, Selena was already the first lead acting with people like Kevin Cheng and Kenneth. It can be said that she lacked luck or maybe didn't suck up enough, but I think the main issue is that TVB is just horrible at spotting true talent and giving actors with high potential more screen time. I.e. whoever does casting decisions suck.
  • @hazel Yes, that is correct in terms of the anniversary awards in recent years….but back when the awards were first established in the late 90s, that wasn’t the case. There were actually more opportunities for artists outside of the main siu sangs and fa dans to get awards, since they had the 10-15 favorite character awards and a bunch of other ones such as best villain, etc….there were also categories specifically geared toward the veterans – I can’t remember the exact name of the award (I think it was called Accomplished Acting or something like that), but they had it split out for Actor / Actress and pretty much all the winners were either veterans or artists who put in solid performances but they knew they couldn’t give them the main actor/actress award…it was only when they overhauled the entire awards show in I think 2005 (I would have to go back and look up the exact year) that they changed it to pretty much the format they have today (with some additional categories added / removed at whim over the years). Overall, I felt there was more respect for veterans and recognition of talent back then, both in terms of awards and operationally as a whole...the mentality basically began to change after the 2000s when the new management group came in and continued to deteriorate from there. Agree with the rest of your comment though! :-)
  • @llwy12 While your point is valid, I don't necessarily think it's a fair comparison. TVB Awards have always been systematically biased towards siu sangs and fa dans and ignores veteran actors because they don't resonate with their core audience (not that they have much nowadays). I would imagine that veteran actors have become jaded with TVB's awards and don't see much value in them because they care more about audience recognition anyway. But I find it sad that TVB can't even honour those deserving of awards without making it into a gimmick. Selena was largely ignored by TVB throughout her 17 years at TVB (despite having audience recognition and better acting skills than a lot of previous fa dans) and when she finally breaks through, she has to share the award with Miriam Yeung. There's no loyalty or respect from TVB all around.
  • Felt bad and embarrassed for Selena having to share the award with Miriam who is much better in films than on television. The Defected should've won Best Series.
  • @hazel " Don’t get what Chen Xiao sees in Michelle Chen. " I am sure most people feel the same way especially the way he gushed how she is 1000% Little Dragon Girl. ??? Really? haha lol....
  • @hazel Appearance only matters initially, but not so much on the long term. Perhaps, Michelle have a great personality and they are more compatible. From what I've seen, Zanilia is an introvert. As, I;m also an introvert, I understand how difficult it was for my ex. He once said that he was tired of guessing about what I was thinking as I don't speak up my mind. One of the main reason we broke up is because I don't like and it's difficult for me to express myself.
  • Appearance-wise, they're much more compatible. I loved them in Lu Zhen. Don't get what Chen Xiao sees in Michelle Chen.
  • @hazel Same. Will miss her dearly. & don't know why, ever since her announcement, i keep seeing her old drama popping up in YouTube which caused me to re-watch her scenes. I want her back on-screen. I don't think i can find other actress in TVB that with the sexy, badass & killer look all in one. and doubted the rest actresses can carry the same emotions as she did in Lives of Omission, Highs & Lows and The Ultimate Addiction. She has some charisma that others don't. Glad she has successfully planted some notable drama before leaving the industry.
  • @hazel i think out of the 3, Joel has the lowest chance of winning. Not saying his acting is bad. He did a great job in Barrack O’Karma and all dramas he was in previously. But, if TVB were to give the award to someone who is a signed TVB artist, then Kenneth has a better chance than Joel
  • @hazel Kenneth really did deserve it for On Call, I could imagine TVB giving him this one almost as a pity award tho
  • @luye He definitely got popular after winning The Voice Stars and TVB had intentions to promote him, but his personal matters were a damn mess. His spiral was definitely self-sabotaged. I'm ambivalent towards Stephanie, but I don't think it's a good idea they marry cause she's been rumoured to have self-harmed because of Fred. She deserves better in my opinion.
