The Federation of Hong Kong Film Makers held a 20th anniversary gala dinner in conjunction with their Outstanding Performing Artists Awards ceremony on Saturday evening. Kenneth Ma (馬國明) was moved to tears when he was voted by various representatives of the Federation as the 2012 Most Outstanding Performing Actor in the television category.

The Federation is comprised of film-making professionals such as producers, directors and scriptwriters. The Outstanding Performing Artists Awards for the television category resembled a a repeat of the 2012 Malaysia Astro on Demand Awards, with Kenneth’s costar in The Hippocratic Crush < On Call 36小時>, Tavia Yeung (楊怡) winning the Outstanding Performing Actress for the television category.

Kenneth was noticeably pleased that his performance was acknowledged by the Federation. Kenneth said, “I feel so encouraged that even the professionals behind the scenes acknowledged my efforts.”

When Kenneth started to cry, Tavia wiped his tears away and was also touched upon seeing Kenneth’s reaction. Tavia felt that both the TVB Anniversary Awards and Federation’s Outstanding Performing Artist awards are equally valuable as they are voted by different groups of people.

The Federation’s awards not only acknowledges the efforts and contributions of artists in the television industry, it also recognizes artists from the film and and music industries.

      Ah, if you wanna ask me, I said congrats to Angelababy for the “big” award and it’s nice to know last year Moses is the winner :D, said in other topic.

      I also said that it would be fun if the Txb artists play throwing awards on each other to see who can throw the most, haha. Ok, kidding.

        If this were such a “big award”, how come so few had heard of it?

        What exactly is the “Most Charming actor/actress” award? and How does one evaluate such?

        I have never heard of it, too, but some ppl here make it like very big, so Angelababy got big, Moses got big, guess so.

        The translated name lack the part “voted by professional ppl” in the name for Angelababy and Nic Tse’s

      Because they have been crying bloody murder and all that crying and crying. So I wonder, since supposedly this is some prestigious awards, and I make an assumption, and Ray didn’t win or mentioned, what are his fans reactions? Or all these cries of abandonment, etc only for TVB awards?

      I assume The Federation of Hong Kong Film Makers is something like Actors Screen Guild Awards or something like that. Which means peers.

        Crying? You are saying of who? Lolz.

        This type of award given the whole year by many different associations. Wat is the big deal to win this or that? I have never heard of this one until ytd and I only knew Moses won it last year due to an article in HKchannel. And coincidentally, Angelababy’s name is listed in as a very big award? I dun know how big it can be… Maybe have to ask MM fans as they seem to be proud of this one a lot so they can know how big it is.

        I wonder, Kate might be nominated with Best actress for HKFA, so how many anti fans of her will cry out loud?

        As for LF, he is going into a route with less Txb, so it’s reasonable that his fans care for Txb lesser and lesser. Hence this type of award, and/or the Txb one without him, wont have their concern. In a year, he grabbed at least 10 awards, so it isnt a big deal to be out of some. And Txb isnt promoting him on that aspect anymore, so it’s so clear.

        Watever, both of LF and Kate, along with Bosco and maybe KC, are trying to go in another path to the ppl of Cat Tsang. It’s a path of outside works more, Txb works less.

        best actress? not in a million years. Elanne Kwong is nomminated for best actress this year. Kate? shell be lucky if she gets supporting actress nommination. She wins all newcomer awards but made no achievements after that.

        But she still might be nominated for a prominent award. Kate, if wanna win movie award, must leave Txb first.

        Funn:
        That was uncalled for. There was no need to even bring up raymond or kate especially when not a single fan made a comment about their disappoint, if any.

        Are you doing this to draw more traffic to jaynestars so people can keep clicking and the owner can monetize?

        kasey, are raymond and kate’s fan THAT sensitive? It is a legitimate question. And not everything is “uncalled for” or are their fans practicising the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy and covering their eyes and imagine rainbows and ponies?

        Where is all this crying? I’m a big LF fan and I don’t feel anything particularly upset about the awards. Awards are by themselves subjective, there will always be people who love a performance, and always people who hate it. The awards just depend on how you slice the pie. I thought Raymond did well this year, but he definitely focused more on film and music than TV series. He’s getting recognition in film, but he’s not up to par to win awards there yet. Meanwhile, the competition was tough this year in TV series, and I thought that Kenneth Ma had a breakthrough year in 2012. Overall, I thought LF made some solid achievements this year, even if it’s not in TV series, and I’m proud.

        There you go, this is a reaction coming from one of his fans since 2001. If you’re looking for drama and butthurt, you’re not getting any from me. sorry to disappoint you.

        I’m also a big Kenneth Ma fan, too and I’m proud of his achievements this year. All those years playing roles with no names and villains paid off. And yes, to give you a reality check, not all fans just stan one person, and not all fans are crazy and will cry bloody murder if their idol doesn’t sweep all the awards.

        Funn:
        Nothing to do with that but it reflects on your character as an individual. You can criticize which you do all the time but tell me youre not asking for a flare between his fans with that comment?

        And sensitive? Not as sensitive as you when some impersonator appeared and got you very emotional.

        At least I am not pretending to be someone else posting my legitimate question. To equate my genuine legitimate question with the mocking tone of an impesonator out to destroy credibility is absolutely uncalled for, as you put the word “uncalled for”.

        well kate certianly dont have much awards besdies newcomer so she has none to share. RL- yes he has tons of awards, but the actual legitimite awards is hard to say. Quality of the award is better then quantity. So far, RL has the quanitity but not the quality.

      • Fox replied:

        Haha quality =)), this one is very prominent? LF had the Asia TV award for Best actor given by a board of professional judges (won before Wayne and KC), so it can’t compare to this one? unknown, you are such a funny fan of MM. And all MM had, except this one, LF had before and even more than MM (such as the Most fave chac, LF had 2, AOD Most fave male actor, LF had before MM 2 years, StarHub Most fave actor, LF had, MM dun have).

        But it’s hard to compare LF and MM now because they are going in two different paths. MM is going in the TV path with Txb and Txb only while LF is traveling more in the path of a movie actor, not a TV one.

        As for Kate, she has Best newcomer from HKFA :D, and now a nomination for Best actress with HKFA, too. Soon, she’ll go in the path of a movie actress. Playing showing award, she might be a dark horse soon.

        When am I a MM. Fan? Ur making more and more assumptions. Ur cracking me up really bad. U view tvb awards and Asia tv award legit? I won’t be impress or cry until rl is nominated for hk film
        , Taiwan golden melody, or even win a male singer award that’s not from Jsg or metro. Kate.. I said she only got newcomer and nothing else. When is she entering movies? She’s still with tvb and that won’t change anytime soon.

        also why u keep saying Kate has nommination for best actress? Besides one leading role back a few years ago, all of her roles are supporting. If michelle yip does not get a nod, kate will certainly not have one. Besides, Kate has no current projects right now in fims. All she has is a tvb series. Just becasue she has a breakthrough in one series, then u think she is good enouogh for movies? Before HAL, kate has alwys been seen as a uncredible and on favored actress. It might e a big deal for her to win best new artist, but theres over twenty other female actesses that have won that award and they have significant performance in films ever since. Karena Lam won best new artist and best supporting actress the same year and shes been nomminating in best actress almost every year after that. What about Kate? all minor roles. besides the one with Wu Chun.

        u can certianly use RL’s awards and popularity to fight off the commenters you hate here, but using Kate just wont work because shes not as big as you make her to be. Im getting kind of tired that you attack everyone who opposes RL and (Kate) since shes his partner.

        Nope, I dun find these award are too quality, especially the Txb one. But is the HK Filmmaker of MM is legit? If you agree it isn’t, then ok :P. MM also dun have creditable awards, and the quantity is even less. He lacks both, quality and quantity.

        And LF was nominated with HK Film award, FYI. You forgot RTHK :P.

        I’m talking about the nomination for Best actress with HK Film! Not TVB! So HAL is out of the scenario.

        Kate entered movie recently. Of course now she is still with Txb, but that dun mean she’ll have to go with them forever. She has the potential to go. At this moment, Kate isn’t a big factor, but the future, who can tell? But comparing to other girls in Txb, she is having some better awards. It isn’t like she lacks that for her fans to have to jealous or cry for this award like Funn Lim hope to see.

        Have to inform you that my list of fave is quite long, just dun have the one you love MM :P. I like Myolie FYI. If you wanna track my fave list, maybe it’s shorter if you track my unfave list :P.

        And now you have many avatars? Aiyoh, why can’t just stick to one account instead of cheating by switch usernames? You will be busted.

        This is not even about mm and I to,d u I’m not his fan. Rl only wins weibo singer and can barley get into the top ten gold song since 2009. He cant even beeak into top twenty song in metro. Ur overhyping Kate since Hal so that is not out of the question. Kate entered movie recently? She entered dice 2007 but fewer and fewer directors have reached out to her these years besides tvb related movies like 72tentants and laughing go movie.

        She is going to film a movie in China, a non Shaw Brother’s :D. Last year she acted in a movie which is going to release: 3D Baby Blues.

        I said that she can be a dark horse for the award. At this moment, she has a HKFA one, any of else of the current top 5 of actresses in Txb have it? Btw, less movie directors approaching her is better than No movie invitation.

        As for RTHK, this year he is in top 10 Best singer, do you take a glimpse on the list? Last year only weibo one, but this year weibo one + top 10 singer.

        So is it really that ashamed to admit that you are a MM fan?

I believe the best male singer was still Eason. Heck all those bands like mr and rb got top singer award too and there’s like ten of those which lowers the siginifcance. He’s still getting shut out by 903 although other tvb singers from the voice are getting major support from them.

        903 supports all Txb singers? Give me an example other than the newcomer awards which from your view, is nothing?

        It’s okay for the songs because he needs hits, I agree on that. He also needs more investment from his music company. At this moment, he is still limited due to his Txb managed status. This is why I hope he will end his contract with Txb this year.

        Being a MM fan is an accuse to you? Wow, you really make me wow at how you react. Haha, ok, I’ll accept you as a MM hater, happy?

    Congrats to all winners. People should just be happy for those that have won and not rub it in other’s artist or their fans’ face for not winning. There’s only one award for each category but there’s many more that is deserving of the award. Besides winning an award is just icing on the cake, having recognition of the artist’s hard work from the general public is much more important and fulfilling.

      To capture more attention of fans. Everyone dun know about it but when their idols win, they will talk and promote for it. If its a tiny one, the fans will talk like its bigger and more prominent.

      This HKfilmmaker federation is for the right of background crew. If there is dispute, the background crew can authorize the federation to act for them in argument with the media company. Hence it isnt really famous and needs more attention. The award is a way.
