Raymond Lam (林峯) and Fala Chen (陳法拉) were named China’s favorite TV actors at the 10th Huading Awards <華鼎獎>. Known as a reliable measure of popularity, the Huading Awards gives out top honors in the films, television, and music categories based on public opinion surveys. This year’s event, which took place on October 7 at the Venetian Macao, also recognized global artists and attracted celebrities from Japan, South Korea, and the United States.

For its International awards, Hollywood stars Nicholas Cage and Nicole Kidman took home the honors of Best Global Film Actor and Actress. Famed director Quentin Tarantino was awarded Best Director, while Avril Lavigne was named Best Global Singer.

As for their domestic counterparts, Dante Lam (林超賢) picked up the award for China’s Best Director for Unbeatable <激戰> while star Nick Cheung (張家輝) won the title of China’s Best Film Actor. When asked to comment, Nick said, “I’m very happy. This award acknowledges my popularity this year, so I feel very honored. Many people feel that I have done well in recent years. Actually I have worked just as hard before, but I have since worked with different directors and was able to bring out my skills in different ways.”

Zhang Ziyi (章子怡) was crowned China’s Best Film Actress despite her absence at the award ceremony. She later explained that she was unable to attend because she is currently busy filming a new John Woo (吳宇森) movie.

Hong Kong artists Raymond Lam and Fala Chen are China’s TV King and TV Queen this year. When asked to comment on his win, Raymond said, “I was given many opportunities to film in mainland this year. I hope that, after winning this award, viewers will continue to witness my efforts in the future.” Asked if girlfriend Karena Ng (吳千語) is his good luck charm, Raymond dodged the discussion by saying that he feels very lucky and grateful that viewers continue to support great series.

Fala, who quickly gained popularity due to her role in this summer’s hit Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲霄II> , said that she is very happy about her win. She added that winning TV Queen is a big encouragement and that she aims to perform even better in the future.

Anthony Wong (黃秋生) was also recognized for his efforts in this summer’s stage play 18/F Flat C <十八樓C座>, taking home the title of China’s Best Stage Actor. When asked for his reaction, Anthony jokingly shared that he was nervous and had an urgent need to use the restroom while he waited to receive his award. He added, “I’ve just established my own theater company, so [this award] helps. I also received the award from Zhao Benshan (趙本山). It was very meaningful.”

    To be honest after hearing all these negative comments about fala acting skills, I wasn’t very fond of her. After watching tits2, She wasn’t as bad many portray her to be. But there is definitely room for improvement. She has a charm which most actress don’t have. Also I don’t think Rebecca zhu looks like her at any angle.

      Crystal:
      Agree with your comments.

      Anyway TVB’s TV King and TV Queen awards given last year were based on the number of votes, not by the acting abilities of the artistes. Therefore,there is not much difference between TVB Awards and Huading Awards.

        I’m just talking about the rigged-ness level between the two distributors. I mean any IT genius can rig those polls on the spot. But Huading has less of an incentive since its a freaking China based award.. I highly doubt they’ll go all the way out to rig it for Raymond and there is Fala. You know what I mean?

        But regardless, somethings are just meant to be yours. Sad though.. it’s not from their own mother company =/

        When Tony Leung Chiu Wai won those international awards for his acting, wasn’t that based on his acting talents??? If you are only referring to TV series, then Esther Kwan won back then for Lady Flower Fist and I feel as well as many others felt that was based on her talent. Also, Tony Leung won back then for Wei Xiao Bao but that was way back in the days and many felt that he is a great actor in that role. But of course, acting is subjective and I am sure that there are some others that actually won for talent. However, that was more for back in the olden days. But currently,there does not seem to be any for actual acting.

        Rare? I would say none. If you know any one, please list.

        Actually the acting is subjective, so many agree while the other disagree whenever a person has award. Cant change opinions, overall they won. A big award is better than a tiny one. – A general talk, not to any particular person.

        That depends on which version of 1st world, 2nd world, 3rd world you are using.

        The traditional terms was geo-political (China was 2nd world), but now look at it as social-economical (barely 2nd world) while others look at it in terms of quality of life/health issues/pollution and disease (still 3rd world).

        The thing about these types of labels is that you can pretty much label any country any way you see fit if you first set the definitions to match your goals.

        I should say that the only really reliable model was the first model… which was based on political divides. 1st world was the US and its allies, 2nd world was Russia and its allies (China), 3rd world was all other unaligned states.

        Note that this was not a ranking system, nor did it mean one world was better than the other… it was just a way to “divide” the nations.

        In modern times, as stated above, the terms has taken on several different meanings, and can be dissected several different ways.

    I think fala won because tits2 just got done airing. Thus, her character was also very likeable. Fala portrayed the cuteness of the character quite well. But completely failed on the emotional scenes.

    But overall her role was quite cute and likeable. Bc tits2 aired during voting period fala had a high chance and was memorable with the public still compared to the other fadans.

    • Fox replied:

      No other current fadans of Txb except Fala is nominated, fyi. So TITS2 is old or new, not really a matter. This one is for China, not only HK so Txb did not have a better seat.

        If this is for China, then fala winning this award is so irrelevant. Bc to my knowledge she has not been in any mainland series. The only one she was actually in has not yet been broadcast….so…i dont understand your point?

        Who say Fala is unknown in China? Fala is in Da Mo Dao, second lead. Although the series hasnt been aired, Fala is well recognized there.

        Yup, TITS 2 is aired in Tudou same time to HK but other series are the same. Fala’s victory this time doesnt contain the involvement of Txb. And she dun compete with Txb actresses for this, she competed with China actresses.

        Its for China, the title is China Best TV actress.

        I dun think any of top 5 fadans of Txb has any Best actresses in China other than such of Fala. So, wat is your point?

        To Fox: Actually Kate Tsui was also nominated. Between Kate and Fala, Kate easily is the better actress. Among the five fa dans Fala is the weakest in acting, so if she got Best Actress for Holiday what should the other 4 get?

        I rmb now, Kate is also nominated. If Kate wins, the fair number maybe including you will go to bash her like Fala now. Wat is the big deal? Because they are newer? Sorry but why the other 4 should win? Fala wins because ppl like her, a crime? If the other 4 can be loved by Txb much to give them awards tat all of them are under standard, why cant Fala have an award without Txb’s involvement?

        Either of Kate or Fala win, its good. FYI, although their acting is limited, I’d rather watch them than TY who I think the fakest acting now. Matter?

      To Fox: I like Kate. I think she is a quite versatile actess. I personally think, like I said before, that she is a better actress than Fala so why would I bash Kate if she won?

      To Crystal: No one is weakest? If you compare people whether it is in acting, singing etc. there are always people who are better than others. Fala who has been acting for 8 years can’t even do a basic thing like crying…and even blames on editing, weather etc. Is that called good acting? The other 4 fa dans have at least no problem doing convincing crying scenes.

      This award definitely seems more like a popularity award more than a recognition for their acting skills.

        Even if it is based on popularity. I doubt Fala’s popularity in China is greater than Ariel Lin (who was also nominated and had a new ancient series aired recently).

        Nope, Nicholas Cage does not deserve it. Certsinly not any ‘best film actor’ award. What a joke! Lol. He has not made a highly acclaimed film in more than 10 years (mostly taking on silly action movies, some of those releases go straight to video) and is no longer taken seriously in Hollywood. The guy is considered a sell-out actor now, no longer on the A-list. No wonder NC has to go to China to get some needed attention because they are probably still loving him there for Face/Off. Lol!

        And I mean, I wouldn’t exactly say Avril Lavigne is particularly relevant these days so it doesn’t make sense that she won Best Global Singer over someone like Adele who’s more current or hell, Katy Perry/Lady Gaga who are hot right now.

    Huading Awards is based only on votes, which ever artist get the most vote for the category will take that award home. That explains why the artist will know before hand that they had already won the award. If it was based on a panel of professional judges then all the nominees will likely attend the award ceremony because there isn’t one clear winner, but here only the winner attended the award ceremony.

    It is also hilarious that some consider TVB awards to be worth more than any other award… the TVB award is more about promoting who TVB wants to promote than based on actual acting!

    Kate Tsui and Wayne Lai were also nominated for this award so Raymond and Fala weren’t the only ones from TVB. I think in terms of acting Kate and Wayne are better than Raymond and Fala.

      Don’t agree. It depends on the types of characters.

        What characters so far have Fala been good in?

        I think there’s only one so far and that was in Moonlight Resonance, playing the mute girl.

        Whereas I think Kate did well in “Highs and Lows”, “Sniper Standoff”, “Moonlight Resonance” etc.

        She is also the only one in TVB who has gotten “Best Newcomer award” at Hong Kong film awards, which was decided by judges at their panel.

        So between Kate and Fala, I think Kate is definitely the better actress.

        I will give you not one but 2: the series with Steven Ma and Linda where Fala acts a fox spirit and outshined Linda miles. Second is Can’t buy me love.

        I would tell you Kate and Fala are ok to me :p, and I like Kate than Fala. But it isnt a matter of Kate not win. Either of them two, whoever win, means Txb dun have a seat in such Huo Ding one. Tat’s all.

        P/S: Wayne is monotone in acting now, if you ask me. And he is nominated not with Confidant but tHe older one of 2012 I dun rmb name. The lower rating one.

        That series was “Ghost Writer” Fox… and I absolutely loved Fala’s character in that series.

        You’ve named two of my favourite series by also mentining “Can’t Buy Me Love” as well… loved Fala in that too.

        This is why I think Fala is better suited to period comedy roles myself.

        To be more precise, where she acts next to Steven Ma.

        I also agree that Fala Chen did very well in “Ghost Writer” and “Can’t Buy Me Love”. She is good in those cute, sweet, silly, sneaky but smart roles. She definitely outshone Linda Chung in “Ghost Writer” and was as good as Charmaine Sheh in “Can’t Buy Me Love”. In fact, I liked Fala more in “Can’t Buy Me Love”.

        Therefore, I think she is the most appropriate actress among the top 5 fadans to act Holiday in “TITS 2”. However, Fala needs to work on her cry scenes and those emotional expressions in more detail in order to excel in her acting.

        Kate Tsui is good in action drama series. Even in “Highs and Lows” and “Sniper Standoff”, her acting did not show a lot of difference.

        Her images were the same to me though her characters were very different.

        I think the writers let Linda Chung’s character down in Ghost Writer. Remember early on she was this really strong and talented woman… very naive but of a good strong character. Then, she changed over the course of the story and became this weak little mouse who would shrink at the slightest thing. If it had been the same character from the start of the show, she’d have been in there beating everyone up!

      Ah yes, Kate is nominated. Either of Kate or Fala win mean Txb dun have an involvement in.

      As for Wayne, lolz, didnt he “won” once by votes (as Txb claimed). Now he losed by votes? Wat is the complaint?

    Main land’s people tend to love young, handsome actors and young,beautiful actresses so that Raymond Lam and Fala Chen are winners is understandable. Huading Award is based on only the public vote so it is more reliable called: “My favorite artists” than “Best artists.”

    I find it sad that a few of the really good TVB actors/sui sang and fadans, have won Best actor/actress awards outside of TVB, but not at the TVB anniversary award itself. Ron and Raymond are good examples. They work so hard for TVB and are such great actors, but getting nothing back from their own company! =(

      Fala Chen may not be the best actress, but she definitely can act and is good in some characters.

      I don’t agree that she cannot act vs. many other TVB fadans. Personally I think she acts least better than Myolie Wu and Linda Chung and maybe Kate Tsui as well.

      AOD or StarHub are also Txb’s, so they are pork dividing. Huo Ding isnt Txb’s, so it gave ppl Txb dun wanna give this year. Tat’s why.

        Aaah I see. Surprised The Hippocratic Crush did not get much recognition at Starhub. Guess the Singaporeans did not think much of it. Kenneth and Tavia’s character win is not from THC I see.

        So much hype in Malaysia and HK on THC. To me so so only. Maybe dubbing affects it. Cos I believe Singapore and China gets dubbed versions?

      • Fox replied:

        Yup, dubbed but I dont know its quality is affected or not. I didnt watch tat one but just a little part when its on TV. I dont know wat are the praises on Ma Ming’s acting because in the part I watched, he is seriously OTT with pouting mouth to an angry scene. Maybe the chac is interesting, I dont know. I still have no guts to watch it. Even Lawrence in sequel cant attract me to watch.

        AOD is much likely Txb with a hand in, deeper than StarHub’s as AOD is too close to Txb award why StarHub is in mid year, after the Txb award happens. So the pork dividing is different.

        So is it a tradition to give this Hua Ding to HK actors/actresses? I see the nomination include Chinese actors/actresses but surprised they give to the HK ones. Last year Kevin/Myolie,this year Raymond/Fala. What happens to Feng Xiao Fung, Tiffany Tang, Hawick Lau, Ruby Lin, Nicky Wu and quite many right although I don’t watch Chinese TV. There must be much much more competition. Although I am happy Raymond got it and can’t say he don’t deserve it.
