Tavia Yeung Hopes Linda Chung Wins Best Actress

TVB’s 46th Anniversary Lighting Ceremony was held on October 4. Cast members for this year’s two anniversary series, The Hippocratic Crush 2 <On Call 36小時II> and Will Power <法外風雲>, as well as the currently broadcast Brother’s Keeper <巨輪>, promoted their productions onstage.

With the annual TVB Anniversary Awards coming along in December, the hype over who will win Best Actor and Best Actress has started again. However, the winner of this year’s Best Actress award seems to remain unpredictable at the moment. Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣), who received much attention for her acting skills in the prank show, Office of Practical Jokes <玩嘢王>, expressed she stands a chance but will take things easily. “Daddy Ha Yu <夏雨> has taught me to be confident. Or else why would I be in this industry?”

Tavia Yeung (楊怡), who won Best Actress last year, said she hopes Linda will receive the award and become the new TV Queen. “I want Linda to receive it more than me getting it twice. First of all, she’s my good friend. Secondly, I’ve also been watching Brother’s Keeper, and I think her character is very refreshing. [Her performance] this year is well-rounded.”

Kenneth Ma and Wayne Lai Have No Confidence in Winning?

On the other hand, there is much competition for the TV King title. When asked if Kenneth Ma’s (馬國明) performance in The Hippocratic Crush 2 will win him the award, he admitted, “I don’t think I have a chance this year since there are so many strong contenders. For example, Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Moses Chan (陳豪), Dayo Wong (黃子華), Francis Ng (吳鎮宇), and Chilam Cheung (張智霖). If I get nominated into top 5, I would feel as if I won!”

Having won TV King for three years, Wayne admitted he does not have much confidence to receive the award a fourth time. Similar to Kenneth, he is satisfied if he is nominated into top 5. “There are Francis and Chilam this year. I also really look forward to Dayo’s performance in My Prime Lady <My盛Lady>. I heard he has a brand new way of acting. He’s also a very strong contender.”

    I don’t think Wayne Lai should win the TV King award again this year. No matter how good his acting is, the chance should be given to other actors. TVB does not have only one good actor!

      agree with @mike
      If a person is excellence in acting , he/she deserve to win. It is not about how many you have won, or that there should be a limit on how many you should get. If this is the case, then this award ceremony is a complete joke.

        I agree with Mike and Sheldon as well, just that Wayne really didn’t deserve to win last year so I’d hope he doesn’t get it again this year simply because the audience love him.

        @chen

        I didn’t say that Wayne does not deserve the TV King title last year. Wayne is a very talented actor, and he really deserves the awards. Again, he or anyone can get the award if he/she is excellent in acting that year.

    And as for Kenneth Ma, his acting is okay..

      • Mt replied:

        Since when has TVB been ‘fair’?? Wayne Lai won because he’s a good actor, not because he’s good looking or because he has bigger fan base than the next actor. If he is better than other actors, then he should win, regardless of whether it’s the first time or the hundredth time. And if another actor appears to have acted better in a drama than Wayne, then said actor should have a chance at winning. Sadly, award shows nowadays are not about recognizing talent anymore. It’s just about handing out statues to the most popular fadan or siusung.

    So far Linda’s performance in BK is nothing outstanding even Kristal is out shining her and I hope they won’t make the last few episodes dramatic on Linda’s character that can be labeld as BA material, performance is from the beginning to the end. I a,lso don’t see the deal with her “acting” in Office of practical jokes can make so many people want her to win Best Actress this year. It’s like saying those people on Punk’d getting that same compliment.

    So far is year none of the younger generation is decent enough to win that award for the females while there is a lot more competition in the males.

    Linda’s acting in Brother Keeper is ok, while Kate’s acting is normal in Snipper Attack. I don’t know why these two are strong for BA award this year from the entertainment news?

    In my opinion, Tavia’s acting is great in A Great Way To Care II + we will she her performance in On Call 2. Joey Meng in A Change of Heart is wonderful, and Myolie Wu in TITS2 is also well done. One of them would be good.

    • Clementine replied:

      Tavia’s acting in Great Way To Care II was so underrated! I was impressed by her performance, and as for Myolie I thought she did a brilliant job in TITS2 as well. But it’s quite obvious tbb is going to either give it to Kate or Linda this year with all the hype going on around these two..

    • Mt replied:

      I haven’t watched Great Way To Care, but I have watched TITS2 ane Myolie was AWFUL! Like I said before, she looked constipated for the entire series. As for Linda, she didn’t do anything that she hasn’t done before. She’s still playing the girly weakling roles and she’s always so nice. It’s a bit sickening. I thought Kate did a good job with the crying scene (when her father died) in Sniper Attack, but her fake eyelashes are so distracting…so no, she shouldn’t win.

    well it makes sense if linda chung wins this year. myolie and tavia already got theirs, kate’s dramas this year are just ok nothing special. fala already left. linda got tiger cubs and brother keeper (two “big” tvb dramas this year), even if her acting isn’t good in those two dramas tvb will give the award to her anyway since it’s the right time. plus best actress award lately isn’t really about good acting or talent, so why not give it to her because other girls already had theirs and now it’s her turn.

    • 5fadans replied:

      I dont think Tiger Cub II will be aired this year tho. That means Linda only has her character in Brother Keeper to compete for BA award.

      The TVB awards ceremony will likely be right after Oncall 2. So I think My Prime Lady would included in this year award.

    Her character in BK is just an introduction right now. Just wait till the end when more dramatic things happens to her character and see how her acting is. Just wait. Too early to say her acting is nothing special.

    • kk replied:

      lol a good actor will shine no matter how small his/her role is given in a drama (except in situation when the character is too badly written). you can’t just wait til the role is giving more dramatic scenes in order for your role to shine. for example wayne lai in rosy business and edwin siu in daddy good deeds, and the most recent perfect example is joey meng in ACOH. i’m sure tvb producers or even themselves didn’t expect their characters would become that popular.
      you and other lind chung hard fan don’t need to tried hard to convinced us how wonder linda acting is. since she’s your favorite actress, you will like her acting even if she gives the worse performance. but i understand why you’re biased that way cuz i would too when it comes to my favorite actress lol.

        I’m not trying to change your views on Linda. I know a lot of people don’t like her. That’s fine. But a lot of people also likes Linda. So u can continue to not like her roles and I’ll just continue to love and support her roles.

    • jayne replied:

      If Linda doesn’t win, Tavia might be crowned again. My feeling is that if “The Hippocratic Crush 2” has reasonably high ratings, Kenneth Ma will get TV King this year. He’s been heavily promoted since last year.

      Chilam Cheung might get consolidation prize such as Favorite Male Character award. Francis Ng may get one of those favorite character awards as well.

      “Triumph in the Skies 2” was the most popular and widely watched series this year. If Fala had continued her management contract with TVB, she would have been likely hyped up for TV Queen.

      • Conscience replied:

        Yes, i agree with you and had the same thinking. Kenneth definitely will get TV King this year in his performance in The Hippocratic Crush 2 and as roy in TTIS2. His fan base is also increasing. As for Queen Award this year, Fala stands a high chance if she continues her contract with TVB. Fala is getting very popular after starring in TTIS. Chilam will definitely get my favorite character male awards this year and probably Linda Chung might get my favourite character female awards. For new comer actress, i think eliza sum stands a chance. For most improved male actor, i think edwin siu stands the chance.

      • bbfanny replied:

        Based on popularity of the series this year TITS2 and THC2 takes the cake so I agree that Kenneth might win this. We have to remember that Francis and Chilam aren’t TVB people.

        I think either Linda or Kate will get the Best Actress award. If TVB gives it to Tavia, that will only create tension between her status vs Myolie when their abilities are somewhat equal.

    Is My Prime Lady going to air and be qualified for this year’s awards? If so, they’re probably going to hype it as Kate vs Linda although I definitely think that Linda is going to get the award this year. I want Linda to get the award this year, but her acting in Brother’s Keeper is so unnatural.. Her acting in Missing You is better than this.

    Also, I think if Francis or Chilam decides to show up up, they will be getting Best Actor.

    • LeUna replied:

      It’s almost impossible for Francis or Chilam to win honey. TVB ain’t that kind to give their award to an artist that doesn’t belong under their belt.

      Which makes sense because if you think about it… if they give them the award, it really means that TVB has no outstanding actors anymore..

      • AC replied:

        Triumph 2 is the biggest series so far this year, and they’re in the stages of planning a movie around it too. They’re still connected to TVB and they also want Chilam to keep filming for them so it’s not that impossible for them to get the award. The only way that you can tell that tvb would not want them to get the award at all is if they leave them out of the nominations completely like how they did with maggie for Last Steep Ascent last year.

  20. LeUna says:

    What is this now? It seems like TVB has ran out of good actress/actors and the awards seems to be given to whoever hasn’t got one yet… where’s the standard?

    Also, what’s the point of bringing the old actors back and use them as a pillar to bring in good rating yet not giving them the recognition they deserve? Honestly, Kenneth and Wayne knows better it’ll just be a pure battle between them and Moses. Francis, Chilam, and Dayo are all outsiders.. obviously TVB aren’t gonna let them win. Which is ironic because those are the actors that truly shined this year (Francis and Chilam) and stands miles away from Moses, Kenneth and Wayne.

      The sad thing is, ‘outsider’ actors like Francis, Chilam and Dayo seem like they wouldnt even care less if they are to be nominated or not let alone win because tvb’s award standards have dropped significantly over the years. Winning or not winning Best Actor would be just a shrug of the shoulder for them imo lol.

    I feel that both Kate and Linda aren’t up to BA level atm. If tbb really has to promote these two into winning this year’s BA award, I think it’s purely a matter of whose next in line to receive the award. If anything I think other actresses like Esther Kwan or Krystal Tin are better options….Kate and Linda? …I mean they have their own secured place as tbb’s current top fadans, but acting wise, they still have quite a reach for BA potentials IMO.

    I haven’t seen BK but Linda’s character sounds nothing out of the ordinary. have never thought highly of her acting anyway. She’s always mediocre at best if u ask me so no, I honestly don’t think it’s her turn yet. Tiger cub seems more promising as her BA representative work. And are they using the voting system this year?? If tvb does not rig the results, I can almost safely say that tavia has more fans than Linda so tavia getting crowned twice seems like a greater possibility. As for Kate, she probably has no chance over tavia if prime lady doesn’t air judging from then lukewarm response for sniper stand off. She was so hyped up last year and well, I thought the drug queen role was a breakthrough role for her but still she lost to tacia eventually. So yeah if voting is still in place and with thc airing so close to the awards, tavia prolly get the most votes out of all the fadans. But but but veterans like Esther will stand a chance if they are nominated!! Let’s keep our fingers crossed. As forrrr best actor, somehow I feel that Moses stand a highest chance out of all the candidates since 1) Comedy isn’t exactly Wayne’s forte but it is Moses’s. He’s always awesome at this. 2) kenneth has to share the limelight with Lawrence and sequels are usually never as good. 3) tits wasn’t that great,really.

      Agree- Kristal’s character and acting is definitely more three-dimensional than Linda’s. I think she outshines Linda most if not all times in BK. If linda receives BA for her performance in BK,then that’d b a slap across the face for Kristal..lol. I’m do like linda, I’d rather see Linda take home BA for a role where she truly shines and wows the audience wth her performance rather be given it simply bcos she is ‘the nxt in line’.
