The 2018 TVB Anniversary Awards ceremony will take place on December 16. The list of nominees was recently released and netizens are furiously debating who they think the winners should be. This year, there are a total of 18 nominees for the Best Actress award. The following three actresses were harshly criticized by netizens for being included on the list.
The first is Niki Chow (周勵淇) who is nominated for her performance in Another Era <再創世紀> as Ella a rich second generation who takes over her father’s company due to his illness. Netizens praised her for being able to maintain her youthful look at 39 years old. However, her acting skills leave much to be desired. In the drama, when her two brothers passed away in a car accident, her crying scenes were devoid of emotion. When her father had a heart attack, she could not even squeeze out a tear!
The second is Natalie Tong (唐詩詠) in Stealing Seconds <棟仁的時光> as Kris, a woman looking for her missing fiancé. Ever since Natalie won Best Actress last year, she has been receiving criticism from netizens deeming her unworthy of the award. They critiqued that she had the same expression throughout the drama and her dialogue was very monotonous.
The third is Louisa Mak (麥明詩) in OMG, Your Honour <是咁的，法官閣下> as Helen; a new lawyer. Seemingly it was the perfect role for her given her background as a lawyer. However, netizens found her facial expressions odd and her delivery of dialogue was like reading from a textbook. Louisa admitted that she has a long way to go and feels that she is unworthy of her nomination this year.
