The official 45th TVB Anniversary Awards nominations have been denounced by netizens as being unfair and baseless. Aimee Chan’s (陳茵媺) nomination in the Best Actress award category for The Last Steep Ascent <天梯> was especially criticized as undeserving. Costar, Maggie Cheung (張可頤), however was nowhere to be found on the nomination list.
At the celebratory dinner for The Last Steep Ascent, Aimee responded over the nomination controversy, “This is the company’s decision, and I only hope that I can make good progress each year. Being nominated this year is already an improvement. I will not bother questioning it.”
Aimee’s boyfriend, Moses Chan (陳豪), added, “It is most important for a person to look forward. Winning an award or not is only a game.”
Moses’ own race for TV King was also shrouded in controversy. A recent tabloid report accused Moses of bartering a 2-year management contract extension for the TV King award. An insider revealed, “Moses normally will not fight. He feels that if the company thinks you are worth it, then you will get [the award]. However, since Moses started dating Aimee, he has been more ambitious. He now feels that he should fight for it so he will not regret later. Although his contract will not expire until 2014, Moses offered to sign for another 2 years. He will not raise his own price. These are his terms to barter for the TV King award.”
Moses laughed off rumors that he traded a contract for an award, “I didn’t sign a contract. Ha ha ha. If so, let me know early, so I can pick a good looking outfit and I can be happy earlier!” Joking aside, Moses concluded, “Winning awards or not, I will face the situation casually. The most important thing is to enjoy the process; I am already happy to participate!”
