Kate Tsui (徐子珊) and Tavia Yeung (楊怡) are currently the hot favorites to win the TVB TV Queen title of 2012. With two very popular dramas already aired, and one coming very soon at the end of the month, Tavia Yeung definitely has an advantage in the Best Actress race.

Netizens have expressed their support for Kate to win Best Actress, and she is currently the most popular candidate for the honor. Although Kate Tsui only has one drama this year, her drama, Highs and Lows <雷霆掃毒> is currently airing to rave reviews. The crime action drama is also faring very well in viewership ratings, and Kate’s character, Pat, is arguably one of the most interesting and sympathetic characters in the show. From giving up her education to escape an abusive family, to becoming a bar girl, a police informant, to getting raped and becoming a drug queen, Kate’s character is one of the most popular characters in among Highs and Lows’ fans.

Kate’s costars, Raymond Lam(林峯) and Ben Wong (黃智賢), have also become popular candidates for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor respectively.

Tavia’s recent “car-shaking” with Him Law (羅仲謙) have put a damper on Tavia’s chances in winning the race. However, Tavia may be able to regain her top spot in the race with the broadcast of TVB’s anniversary drama, Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles <名媛望族>. The drama will finish its broadcast right before the anniversary awards, which gives Tavia yet another advantage in the best actress race. Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles is now Tavia’s only chance of winning the award.

    On a totally different note — where’s all the news about the favourites to win Best Actor? Are we all assuming just give it to Ray and to hell with it?

    personally, kate’s acting has improved in highs and lows and i am loving the chemistry and romance between her and raymond. there were episodes last week and i missed seeing her on screen 🙁

    i am not a big fan of tavia and her characters are always the same. i liked her in on call but did she stand out from the rest of her cast? no…not at all.

    Neither. Both need more dramas and polish up on their acting skill before even getting a TV Queen 2012.

    What about jessica hsuan or Michelle Yim or as @Larry 3 mention above, Liza Wang??

      It’s highly unlikely Jessica will win, I don’t even remember the last time she attended the awards ceremony, as for Michelle she will be nominated for sure but not sure about her winning it though.

      I highly doubt Liza would win, her character in DID was nothing new from her but she will be nominated.

      Most of the top the BA goes to one of the 5 fadans, and these two have the most higher chances based on this year.

      Linda was overpromoted way too much this year and none of her roles really stood out besides WI,she will be nominated but comparing it to Kate and Tavia, she won’t get it. Myolie didn’t have any good roles this year, her series suffered low ratings and the character she portrayed wasn’t exactly memorable in Wish and Stitch and she just reprised her role in GJ2, which was nothing new we’ve all seen that of her last year besides it’s unlikely she’ll win again.

      As for Fala, her series with Roger wasn’t that well received either and neither does her character.

        -_- Then Tavia will win. This year TV Queen is stupid now.

        She does not deserve it. They should change it to Best Actress for 2012 not TV Queen at least… >>

        The award is for the year 2012 not of all time. which is why they only based the awards for their series and roles they played in 2012

        But to Txb, long service is a factor and who they want to promote is another factor.

        None of Tavia’s roles are received well and she got criticized for 3K. It’s unfair if Tavia got the award just because of seniority and not due to her acting in 2012.

        Oh I meant Tavia and Him pretty much already confessed they were dating, so it wouldn’t be a hug announcement besides I don’t think she will if she would win

      • purplepaw replied:

        lol myolie/bosco was an obvious couple so her admitting she was dating him wasn’t a huge announcement either, but it was a “big deal” because they finally publicly acknowledged it. him/tavia haven’t publicly acknowledged their relationship yet just like myolie/bosco before myolie won tv queen

        So this mean that if Him and TY wants to remind their relationship, then nune of them should win the best actress/actor awards lol

    Kate won’t win. She winning after Myolie is too soon. Yes, she had breakthrough, she had improvement, but it’s not enough. If she really wins, TVB is nuts.

    Not a fan of Tavia, but I wouldn’t mind her winning. Sometimes it’s not about who really performed the best that particular year, it’s about all the years of experience and acceptance from audience that they can act. It’s about “timing”. And now, it’s about time that Tavia gets the award.

    Kate Tsui is like Linda last year. Miss Koo had a breakthrough, but that dosent mean that she deserves best actress. TVB always push another fa dan to go against their pick for best actress. Last year, Fala was the person that goes against Myolie. This year, Kate is in Fala’s shoes and Tavia is in Myolie’s position.

    • VFC replied:

      I honestly don’t think Linda’s character as Miss Koo was that much of a breakthrough though, they’re portraying different characters anyways so you’ll never know. This year Tavia’s role wasn’t outstanding enough, besides SSSS which has yet to air so can’t judge for that yet. THC was a great series but the character she portrayed was too ordinary for Tavia and as for RPG….well her character didn’t do much for the series but as a love interest which wasn’t something she should be nominated for as BA.

      • Joe replied:

        Thats true. But we all know that Tavia depends on SSSS for best actress and its airing in two weeks. HPC was used to increase her popularity and start off the year with a good impression for the audience which worked out well. Its reasonable for her to get favorite character for HPC at the least. I think she will get at least one award like Charmaine in 2010 in the worst case. Her role in SSSS is suppose to be a breakthrough like Kate.

      • VFC replied:

        From the trailers of SSSS it does seem like a good role for Tavia but comparing to Kate, she has a much more breakthrough role than Tavia in my opinion, we’ve kind of already seen that type of strong independent character from her but I’m just saying this based on the character description I read but as for Kate, it’s a whole other role for her, we’ve never seen this side of her.

        I have a feeling it will be Kate in the end though that’s just my opinion so far since SSSS hasn’t aired yet.

    • Joe replied:

      I guess Kate’s role is good, but is her performance really that good as people say it is? I did not watch HAL yet so I can’t judge. I mean if its comparable to Sheren then she should win. But it does make sense for her to win in a way becasue Myolie’s role in Curse was a joke. So it seems like Pat is a better character then Myolie’s queen role in Curse.

      • VFC replied:

        You should def watch it, she’s doing extremely well, I honestly can’t imagine any of the top 5 fadans portray that role but her, next week is going to be her character’s turning point where she becomes a top drug dealer along with going through many traumatic experiences. I was never really a fan of hers but this really impressed me.

        Her role as Pat and Myolie’s role in Curse of the Royal Harem is really different, I didn’t think Myolie did that well in there but if you were to compare then Kate’s character is definitely better and it stands out so far.

    Is Kate leading in HAL? She has little screen time as far as I’m concerned.

      She is the main female lead, her screen time will increase after her turning point where she turn to drugs, she’ll become one of the NB’s most wanted.

      However Tavia’s ‘car incident’ with Him Law
      earlier damaged her image, therefore the
      result may change. According to an internal
      TVB employee, [he/she] reveals: “Although
      Miss Lok (Virgina) believes Tavia was drunk,
      but she and Him made the incident look so
      bad, so Virgina scolded her. Coincidentally
      Highs and Lows started airing around that
      time, many people praised Kate Tsui’s good
      performance and her drug queen role has
      really made a breakthrough. So, [TVB] is
      considering to let Raymond Lam and Kate get
      the TV King and Queen awards together.

        SSSS will be airing very soon and we will then kow who will win. It might turn out to be Michelle Yim. So the award winner is still a mystery.

      • VFC replied:

        Yeah the awards is based solely on acting performances not what she does in her personal life, that’s just being biased. Since Tavia is nominated for SSSS, we would have to wait for that to air in a couple weeks, but the thing is the series is a grand production with a huge cast, so I’m not even sure if she can stand out in that series at all, but we’ll see. So far I’m liking Kate in HAL and next week is suppose to be the turning point of her character so she’ll get really favored by then.

        As for Michelle,I’m not sure about that I think she will def make it into the top 5 but Idk about actually winning the award.
