Chilam Cheung (張智霖) and Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) were in Beijing on November 20 to accept the awards for Most Popular Hong Kong/Taiwan Actor and Actress at the Young Choice Awards 2013 <青春的選擇2013年度盛典>.
Held by Tudou.com and Shenzhen Satellite Television, the Young Choice Awards selects nominees in music, film, and television categories based on online search trends. Fans are then encouraged to vote for their favorite idols every day until the polling deadline.
Riding on the popularity of summer blockbuster Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲霄 II>, Chilam and Myolie easily claimed victory yesterday. Even though she has won other mainland awards in the past, Myolie is particularly happy this time around because the award was given to her by her fans. Already a TV Queen, Myolie does not seem too anxious about the upcoming TVB Anniversary Awards. While she has received less pre-race buzz than usual, her Young Choice win shows that she is still a force that cannot be ignored.
By contrast, TV King favorite Chilam is very motivated to win this year because something important is at stake. He and wife Anita Yuen (袁詠儀) have apparently entered into a bet regarding his chances. “She said I will not win. If I win she will treat me to meals for three months. If not, I will have to buy her a watch….” Chilam seems to find the bet unfair, lamenting that Anita had already picked out a watch worth a hefty, six-digit sum.
Aside from Chilam and Myolie’s win, Triumph in the Skies 2 also proved itself a favorite among mainland’s youths, winning the honor of Most Popular Film and Television Production.
