• Very happy for Eliza. Her kids are adorable!! By the way, I don't think she opened an Instagram account for Julius. That post was on her husband's page.
  • @melia880 But the actors/actresses in Lo and Behold do get proper recognition. Kalok, Mandy Lam, and Lau Dan have won awards in previous years.
  • @melia880 Agree with you about Sisley. The only role Ive ever liked of her is Dino in Legal Mavericks. She portrays that character very well. And for that, I think she deserves to win
  • I agree with all of the individual acting awards (although I would've liked to see Tsui Wing win BSA, but I guess that would continue the Al Cappuccino sweep too much...), and am very happy for all of them. What didn't sit well with me personally was the five shows winning Best Non-drama Program (lol), the clearly made-up-last-minute-due-to-popular-reception Best Mini-Series (lol x2), and giving the Achievement award to Lo and Behold (this one is gonna be a bit of a rant lol). I'm biased because I love Lo and Behold, but I always find it very sad that none of the actors/actresses on that show get proper recognition. Many of them are way better actors than the ones in the regular dramas, but they rarely receive recognition in the individual categories because they're so consistent and it's so ongoing. I've seen all of them do very heavily emotional scenes and knock them out of the park, but they're not as impactful as the regular dramas because they're embedded within thousands of episodes. Now that they've been shoved an award that was historically meant honour individual actors with lifetime achievement, it feels like they're shoving a generic blanket award for the whole cast and being like, "here's your award". It makes me think the cast is even less likely to get nominated/win now, since they've been given the "big prize" even though we all know it was just to appease them/the fans.
  • @coni I completely agree. I think Vincent winning for Al Cappuccino would have been more fitting, but I also think people forget that being a blind lawyer in LM2 is a challenging role. Just because he's won it before doesn't mean it's still not a challenging character and that he did a great job in it. As for Sisley, I also have no problems with her winning Best Actress. I disagree with comments saying Mandy Wong should win because she's been around longer etc. because these awards are not based on seniority nor previous dramas. This year, Mandy's characters didn't deliver. I couldn't tell you a true difference between her three characters, even though they were designed completely differently. I truly thought Madam G was very poorly acted. Sisley actually brought Dino to another level this time around, and executed all aspects well. She's not my personal favorite of the bunch but I don't think she is undeserving.
  • @coralie I heard the alarm bells go off in my head when I read that part and was glad to come to the comments to see everyone also found it disturbing!
  • @mulder99 Truthfully I'm hoping TVB will do a twist like they did for Best Supporting Actor last year and give it to someone on Lo and Behold, especially considering none of the dramas this year have been outstanding and all of the actors/actresses have been decent but not amazing as well. I've been catching up on a lot of episodes for Lo and Behold lately and am pleased to see that the acting in the sitcom is actually quite good! Personally I hope to see the cast there getting more recognition for their work.
  • @coralie Agreed. Actually, I saw fan comments that Koni actually clarified on Weibo when the incident happened 6 years ago that Kelly has nothing to do with it and that she is a good friend of Koni. Kelly even said thanks to her on Weibo. So for her to drag this out 6 years later, during a time that Koni is going through something personally difficult (and when Koni clearly defended her in the past and didn't try and drag her), disgusts me.
  • @mi88 I saw Ben's original post which said Bowie was going 85 in an 80 zone. Agree that there is a possibility the other driver was going too fast; however the lanes are not really split by "fast" and "slow". The left lane is actually for passing, so if you're going at a steady speed, even if it's over the speed limit like Bowie, you should not be on the left lane. You should only be on the left lane to pass, but since the other driver was able to pass her using the middle lane, she was probably driving too slowly or just in the wrong lane. Doesnt excuse the other guy's poor behavior but Bowie also takes part of the blame for danger, and for not knowing the rules of the road.
  • @potatochip Agree with you about consistency and love, and not military style parenting. Personally my belief is that parenting should be about knowing when to be flexible and adjust to your child's needs, regardless of gender, in order to help them build character and discipline, but also be a supportive parent. Hopefully Kevin and Grace are not actually as "extreme" as they are sounding on the media. Seems like Kevin and Grace both have really strong preconceptions of gender roles, which actually surprises me for Grace, who has lived in Canada for most of her life.
  • @melia880 I was going to post the same. His views are so dated. Women can and should be independent from men.. If in the future they do have a girl, I hope he has progressed by then. Setting his daughter up to be dependent on men (whether it is her husband or father) will not give her the ultimate happiness. And for boys, "strict and frugally" is also harsh. Children need consistency and love and not military style parenting. Anyways, congrats to them. These are just words. I found that the ideals I had before having kids became silly once reality set in. They will be good parents.
  • Cant say I agree with Kevin. Why can't women be independent instead of spoiled and reliant on either their husbands or parents?
  • @tungamy @taylor I've been watching and honestly think this show is really good. It's got its typical TVB flaws in that things can be a bit exaggerated but I find that Lam Chi Wahs dramas all have fantasy elements to them (Over Run Over, Dead Wrong, etc). The plot is actually quite good and suspenseful. I think my favorite thing about this drama is its ability to be multidimensional. I find most dramas are only able to focus on one topic at a time (e.g. if you are a cop, your life revolves around being a cop) but this drama combines social media, boxing, mystery, government, bodyguards etc. all in one without overly focusing on one. Also the actors are all doing fairly well!
  • @melia880 That category includes ALL dramas that aired this year (basically the time period between last year's award ceremony and this years) -- so yes, that category is kind of pointless....they should've narrowed it down to make it a true "nominations" list....
  • @orchid123 18-20 weeks is nearly 5 months! Surprised she has not shown a baby bump yet. And still wore heels a lot, from the pics she posted on instagram
  • TVB really needs to do like top 8 for nominations instead of top 20 or whatever. For example, were any of TVBs dramas NOT nominated for Best Drama??? Seems like they're all on there... they might as well not release a nomination list.
