After four weeks of voting, the results of the 2011 Best of TVB Awards @ JayneStars.com are now available! Bottled Passion proved its popularity as the series and cast nearly swept all the awards categories! On the opposite spectrum was Super Snoops, which appeared to be quite unpopular as it consistently received the lowest rating in multiple categories!
Best Series: Bottled Passion
The voting for “Best TVB Series” was a fierce battle, in which Bottled Passion received the top score of 4.14 stars, with 614 votes. Following closely behind was Ghetto Justice in 2nd place with a score of 4.12 stars and 735 votes. The two series were completely different in style, genre, and subject matter.
