Nomination list for the 2012’s TVB 45th Anniversary Awards


The nomination list for the annual TVB 45th Anniversary Awards 2012 is finally out! The awards presentation will be held on 17th December 2012, on Monday’s night. The annual awards presentation is usually held in early December, but is postponed to middle of the month for the two anniversary series, ‘Silver Spoon Sterling Shackles’ and ‘The Confidant’ to finish airing before final decision is made on the winners. However, for this year’s awards, it is up to the Hong Kong audiences to vote for the coveted Best Actress, Best Actor and Best Series.

Previously, it’s all under TVB’s executives to decide who will win on that night. However, after years of receiving complaints over their several badly-picked choices to the awards, they decided to attract more audiences to catch up with the awards by getting them involved in selecting the winners. Thus, it became advantage to artistes with huge fan base (like Raymond Lam, Tavia Yeung) and disadvantage to some others especially the veteran (like Michelle Yim, Kenneth Ma). However, it is still up to TVB executives to pick the top 5 if I’m not mistaken. Now, here’s the official nomination list below. The one with a mark in the end are my top 5 picks while the one in bold are my top two favourites. I pick two, as I’m kind off in hard situation to choose only one.

Best Actor:

1. Wayne Lai in The Confidant*
2. Moses Chan in The Last Steep Ascent*
3. Kevin Cheng in Gloves Come Off*
4. Kenneth Ma in The Hippocratic Crush*
5. Raymond Lam in Highs and Lows*
6. Bosco Wong in Witness Insceurity
7. Damian Lau in Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles
8. Roger Kwok in Queens of Diamonds and Hearts
9. Joe Ma in Tiger Cubs
10. Raymond Wong in Gloves Come Off

Comment: Based on voting, Raymond would win it easily. Furthermore, he had been in TVB for number of years, and it’s already time for him to be recognized as ‘Best’, and not only in ‘Most Favourite’. He did quite well in Highs and Lows too. The strongest dark horse would be Wayne Lai. Can he win TV King for the third time? Probably. His character as Li Lian Ying in anniversary drama, The Confidant is well-received.
Best Actress:

1. Michelle Yim in The Confidant*
2. Charmaine Sheh in When Heaven Burns*
3. Myolie Wu in Ghetto Justice 2*
4. Tavia Yeung in Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles*
5. Fala Chen in Queens of Diamonds and Hearts
6. Linda Chung in Wintess Insecurity
7. Kate Tsui in Highs and Lows*
8. Aimee Chan in The Last Steep Ascent
9. Liza Wang in Divas in Distress
10. Niki Chow in Bottled Passion

Comment: Kate Tsui had a breakthrough performance in Highs and Lows. However, I find it’s not the time yet for her to get this Best Actress. Sorry to her fans. Next year probably. It’s year for Tavia. Similarly to Raymond, she had a huge fan base too, and that she had been in TVB for many years. Her acting is no doubt to be questioned. The strongest dark horse would be Michelle Yim, portraying the challenging role of Empress Dowager Cixi in The Confidant. However, she won this before and her chance is slimmer already. But I do really like her in the drama. She looks amazing and her performance is fantastic.

My Favorite TV Male Character:

1. Kevin Cheng in Ghetto Justice 2*
2. Moses Chan in The Last Steep Ascent
3. Wayne Lai in The Confidant*
4. Raymond Lam in Highs and Lows*
5. Kenneth Ma in The Hippocratic Crush*
6. Bosco Wong in Witness Insecurity*
7. Bobby Au Yeung in House of Harmony and Vengeance
8. Michael Miu in Highs and Lows
9. Raymond Wong in The Confidant
10. Damian Lau in Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles

Comment: Kenneth, for me, this award is for you. Similarly to Kate, it’s not yet the time for you to clinch the Best Actor. But after seeing such awesome and likeable performance from him in The Hippocratic Crush, he should get this Most Favourite award. The strong dark horse for this category would be again, Raymond Lam which is heavily brought up by TVB.

My Favorite TV Female Character:

1. Michelle Yim in The Confidant*
2. Charmaine Sheh in When Heaven Burns*
3. Myolie Wu in Ghetto Justice 2*
4. Crystal Tin in King Maker
5. Tavia Yeung in Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles*
6. Tavia Yeung in The Hippocratic Crush
7. Kate Tsui in Highs and Lows*
8. Fala Chen in Queens of Diamonds and Hearts
9. Eliza Sam in Divas in Distress
10. Niki Chow in Bottled Passion

Comment: This is so going to be given to Kate. She deserves this, to push her closer to Best Actress award soon. Her character in Highs and Lows is extraordinary and she had definitely improved much in her acting. I didn’t like her in earlier dramas, but after seeing her fantastic work in Highs and Lows, I must say she nailed it. If Michelle or Tavia didn’t win Best Actress, then either one of them would be a strong dark horse here.

Most Improved Male Character:

1. Gam Kong
2. Him Law
3. Edwin Siu
4. Oscar Leung
5. Vincent Wong

Comment: Not much to comment for this category. Oscar had been in TVB for so long and there isn’t any recognition for him yet. Probably this is the year? Edwin Siu is a dark horse in this category. He had been improving quite steadily in recent years.

Most Improved Female Character:

1. Mandy Wong
2. Eliza Sam
3. Christine Kuo
4. Katy Kung
5. Cilla Kung

Comment: I didn’t watch Eliza Sam’s performance but I knew that she had been receiving much attention lately. I have seen Mandy Wong’s performance and it’s good, so I’m choosing her. For others, nothing much to comment.

Best Supporting Actor:

1. Power Chan in The Confidant*
2. Koo Ming Wah in Divas in Distress*
3. Oscar Leung in L’Escargot
4. Elliot Ngok in The Confidant
5. Vincent Wong in Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles
6. Alex Lam in Ghetto Justice 2*
7. Kenny Wong in The Last Steep Ascent*
8. Ram Tseung in Witness Insecurity
9. Him Law in The Hippocratic Crush*
10. Edwin Siu in Daddy Good Deeds

Comment: Firstly recognized as hot favourite to win Best Supporting Actor earlier, Koo Ming Wah as So Gay now faces a tough opponent; Power Chan. I find Power Chan’s performance in The Confidant wonderful. Both are like in 50/50 situation now. Both must be nervous.

Best Supporting Actress: 

1. Mandy Wong in L’Escargot*
2. Rachel Kan in Master of Play
3. Mary Hon in Three Kingdoms RPG
4. Florence Kwok in King Maker*
5. Law Lan in The Last Steep Ascent
6. Christine Kuo in Ghetto Justice 2
7. Nancy Wu in Gloves Come Off*
8. Elena Kong in Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles*
9. Eliza Sam in Divas in Distress
10. Aimee Chan in The Confidant*

Comment: On this category, I have no one in bold (no one picked as my top two favourites. Not much comment on this category. Wait…Nancy Wu should be nominated in The Confidant since her character is quite emphasized and favoured, causing an alternative ending for her character to be filmed lately.

Overall, this nomination list is quite similar to that of Malaysia’s My AOD Favourites Awards 2012 which is going to be held in early December and acts as an early hint to this TVB Awards. For best series category, all series aired in 2012 are nominated, and the top 5 would be picked by TVB executives for audiences voting. Too bad, only Hong Kong audiences can vote. For me, as a Malaysian, I can only vote for Malaysia’s AOD Awards, and not this one. The result will be announced with the awards presentation broadcast live on 17th December. I have been catching up on this annual awards every year since 2008.
