Eliza Sam and Vincent Wong are Hot Contenders for Most Improved Awards

Beauty Queen Eliza Sam’s (岑麗香) popularity has been soaring since she was heavily promoted by TVB this year.  Comparatively, Vincent Wong (王浩信) may not be considered a newcomer but his stellar performance as the villain in Will Power <法外風雲> has won much critical acclaim.

With her wholesome good looks, curvaceous figure, and healthy image, Eliza is popular among viewers and advertisers. Eliza appeared in heavy roles in Sniper Standoff <神鎗狙擊> and The Hippocratic Crush 2 <On Call 36小時II>. In Triumph in the Skies 2, Eliza’s crying scene even surpassed that of leading lady, Fala Chen (陳法拉).

Already winning the Most Promising Actress award at the TVB Stars Awards Malaysia 2013, will Eliza be able to repeat her success in Hong Kong? Eliza will be facing strong competition from Priscilla Wong (黃翠如), Grace Wong (王君馨) and Oceane Zhu (朱璇). Eliza said, “I will work hard towards my goal. Whether I win the Most Improved Award, I will still put in my best. I think Priscilla will win because of her multi-talents. Not only can she act, she is also good in hosting travel programs.”

Vincent Wong Getting Noticed

In the industry for eight years, Vincent’s career has experienced a steady increase, gaining broader recognition of his acting talent. Vincent left a memorable impression playing Damian Lau’s (劉松仁) son in Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles <名媛望族>. This year, Vincent continued to shine in Will Power as Fala’s boyfriend who raped Sire Ma <馬賽>. Even though his character was extremely hateful, viewers were awed by his acting skill. Even competitor Him Law (羅仲謙) cast a vote for Vincent.

Vincent said, “Many people made noise online and some even questioned my own personality. But everyone gave me a lot of encouragement after the drama. This time, I put in a lot of work. With good word-of-mouth, I have confidence.”

    Jason Chan no longer a hot contender? THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!

    Vincent for the win. He showed the most improvement. Frankly I also like Sammy Shum (he’s also in the same category right?) and he has the best potential to be lead actor. But for that dozen slaps twice over, Vincent deserves the win.

        HTS, I think Jason Chan is overly promoted despite his bad, wooden, acting.

      • He is not just bad, he is seriously bad – I asked TVB to give a me try several times and provide to TVB I would be acting better than Jason like a few times but TVB told to me “Your face is not handsome enough”

        He is better to be a host than a supporting actor thought. I not exaggerating but that dude exaggerates when he acts. NO-OFFENSE TO ANY OF HIS FANS BUT YOU MIGHT WANT TO FIND THIS THE TRUTH. Hopefully after a few more years of learning he should be a better actor.

      Jason doesn’t need this small award, he’s going for the supporting category LOL.
      I find his face extremely weird when he’s trying to make some expression, and hilarious to see.

        I also think Vincent Wong should have won the “Most Improved Actor” award last year. He is a very good actor. Don’t know why TVB has not promoted him highly yet.

      • Funn Lim replied:

        tvbfan, meaning if Jason is hotly tipped for Best Supporting, he is as good as lost that title. Because he won’t win.

    Good luck to Vincent! I’m hoping that he does win Most Impoved! I actually didn’t really like him when he first started in War of In Laws 2 because of his annoying character and I didn’t think he was that good looking because his face look too smushed together in the center (yes, totally shallow reason). However, I think he’s become a pretty good actor and his portrayal in A Change of Heart and Will Power shows his range. For this same reason, I want Grace Wong to win too because I thought that she did very well in all the different characters she portrayed this year.

  5. RW says:

    Vincent yes, Eliza no. Grace Wong is better. Having 4 series airing this year doesn’t mean Eliza has improved, but TVB sure wants her to get this award, since she’s gonna be promoted to first line. Him Law is good too actually, the scene when Eliza died was well done. Still rooting for Vincent though

    I support Vincent Wong. I think he is too good for “Most Improved Actor” after investing 8 years in entertainment industries. Anyway an award is better than no award to any artiste.

    I wish him GOOD LUCK and hope he will move up to act 1st lead roles soon.

    In terms of acting, I think Grace Wong acts better Eliza Sam, but it seems that Eliza is more promoted by TVB. Not surprised if she wins “Most Improved Actress” award this year.

      Agree with you on Grace!!
      Actually I hope GraceWong to get an award for this year!! She performs well!! Love her in Awfully Lawful, her parts with Paul are the only parts I watched! So funny!! Others, I just keep pressing the “forward” button!!
      She did good in THC2 too
      and hahahas, she is superb in Bounty Lady!!!
      Laugh till stomach cramp the part she asked the guy to place back the “pork” back at the right place!! Her tone and also the way she looks! I thought that was her favorite part that she wanted to eat!
      Turns out she wanted to take a picture with that “pork chop rice”!!

      I really think Grace Wong has improved a lot in her acting over the last 2 – 3 years. She definitely deserves the “Most Improved Actress” award, from not good to good.

      Eliza Sam has also improved, but just from no good to okay. As many people said, her few roles were more or less the same, not a big range in acting.

    Vincent should definately win. He shows a broad range and has done well in a number of roles. Although Eliza is not bad, she keeps playing the same roles and is type cast (not necessarily her fault as some of the other young tvb actresses are as well).

    I agree that Grace should get the female vote

    Somehow i’m not very appealed to Eliza though many ppl commented about her hardworking personality etc. so not so keen to see her win. But then again, the female category seems much weaker as compared to the guys whom most of them in the MI category are pretty strong actors. Rooting for Vincent!

    Vincent Wong gonna take it, hands down. Give it to him please, TVB. Him Law can’t do what Vincent Wong did in ACOH and WP. There’s nothing great about Him Law’s character in TITS2.

    Yes, Grace Wong please. She’s a more versatile actress compared to Eliza Sam for now. Love her <3

    OMG! I am so shocked! Dayo Wong is TV King! And he asked “Is that TV King? How many can be TV King?” The funniest response of the night! You know I am very happy with the results and Dayo winning. He was 1st with the peers voting but 3rd with fans. I suspect because his series is still airing. The 2nd is 1st with fans but 3rd with peers. My feeling is Chilam. 3rd I think must be Kenneth.

    Great results! Won’t dispute!

        Yeah, i think they did one in 1998 and another in 2000. I remember it was a period where Wong Jing dumped a lot of trash in HK cinema, and I ended up not watching HK movies for a while.

        @Funn Lim:

        Chilam wasn’t gracious.. he didn’t even stay behind for a group picture for all award winners, and did not accept any interviews. He too did not post any thanks on weibo, as of yet.
        Whereas, Francis did took a group picture with the crew of TITS2, and posted on weibo, thanking all the voters who voted for him.

        Yes, Francis was in the stand-up comedy with dayo waaaay back. He was very funny in it too!

        He was 3rd with audience. So he didn’t win with the audience. He was 1st with peers. Probably with higher percentage margin. I was thinking Ruco perhaps? Then Dayo was announced. EVERYONE was shocked. Management didn’t look pleased since Dayo is his own man.
