Full Result of Singapore’s Starhub TVB Awards 2015


It is obvious that I’m putting more focus on the TVB Star Awards Malaysia 2015 when we are talking about annual awards presentation for TVB series at oversea as I’m from Malaysia. However, I would also keep myself updated with the other oversea’s awards ceremony to honour TVB, and that is the Singapore’s Starhub TVB Awards. As usual, Starhub TVB Awards is the first of the three major awards presentation for TVB, while TVB Star Awards Malaysia will be on next month, before finally the Hong Kong’s TVB Anniversary Awards in December. The 2015’s Singapore Starhub TVB Awards was held last night on 24th October and was attended by over 20 Hong Kong artistes. I must say that Starhub Awards’ trophies are so much better looking than our Star Awards Malaysia’s ugly trophies.

Hereby are the full result of the awards ceremony alongside with my opinions for each categories:

My Favourite TVB Actress
Liza Wang (“Limelight Years”)

Opinion: Didn’t expect Liza to win eventhough from the very beginning I’m already rooting for her from her excellent performance in ‘Limelight Years’. The reason is that because the result is based on voting and I guess she as a veteran artist will not get as much votes compared to the other young and pretty actresses. It’s all about popularity and so I’m surprised that she still gained huge number of votes. Anyway, happy for this result as there is no breakthrough or any outstanding leading female performance this year. So, the next one to consider is her role in ‘Limelight Years’ which is also a good drama this year. I do hope that she will maintain this momentum and go on to win at our TVB Star Awards Malaysia too. It should not be about popularity. It should be measured by performances. Liza Wang deserved this.

My Favourite TVB Actor
Ruco Chan (“Captain of Destiny”)

Opinion: Also very glad that Ruco Chan win this. Out of all the male leading performances of this year that I have seen so far, he is the standout. He had a great role in ‘Captain of Destiny’ and he nailed the role with his superb handling of his face, body, and gesture expressions to showcase a huge range of emotions required for this nicely-developed character. I also do hope that he win in TVB Star Awards Malaysia next month too. He deserved it as he is a very talented actor with all the ingredients needed to win leading actor award already. Well, he also win the same award in Singapore last year. Twice in a row.

My Favourite TVB Supporting Actress
Lin Xia Wei (“Young Charioteers”)

Opinion: Wow..didn’t expect she would jump straight to supporting actress win but well, I think she deserved it too. Her role in ‘Young Charioteers’ is nice and she portrayed it very convincingly. It is far from good for an actress like her whom is still considered at a very junior level. Another talented young rising female artist in TVB.

My Favourite TVB Supporting Actor
Vincent Wong (“Tomorrow Is Another Day”)

Opinion: Didn’t watch this series but I do know that he do improves a lot in recent years. And now winning supporting actor seems to be a right thing for him too. On the other hand, I enjoyed watching him in ‘Brick Slaves’ as a leading role this year eventhough that is still not of a best actor’s material yet. ‘Tomorrow Is Another Day’ is supposed to be series last year, but only get to air in Singapore this year and hence you see this series in contention for their awards this year.

My Favourite TVB Female TV Character
Eliza Sam (“Under the Veil”)
Kristal Tin (“Ghost of Relativity”)
Nancy Wu (“Ghost of Relativity”)
Tavia Yeung (“Eye in the Sky”)
Linda Chung (“Tiger Cubs II”)
Selena Li (“Brick Slaves”)
Priscilla Wong (“Madam Cutie on Duty”)

Opinions: Seven awards handed out. So it is like pork-sharing similarly to the ‘My Favourite TVB Male TV Character’ below. Every TVB artistes attending the awards ceremony whom have been left out of other awards will get this one definitely. I’m not okay with Eliza Sam winning this. She has improved a lot (even her Cantonese is getting better already) but still not worthy to receive ‘my favourite character’ award. There are other females who are more deserving like Myolie Wu, Kate Tsui, etc. I thought usually when you get the favourite actress award (Liza Wang), you will get this one too. But nope, they allocate that spot for other people, obviously cementing my opinion just now that it is a pork-sharing situation here. Same case for the category below when Ruco won the favourite actor but not character eventhough his character is very likable.

My Favourite TVB Male TV Character
Wayne Lai (“Overachievers”)
Kenneth Ma (“Noblesse Oblige”)
Lawrence Ng (“Tomorrow Is Another Day”)
Moses Chan (“Every Step You Take”)
Edwin Siu (“Madam Cutie on Duty”)
Louis Cheung (“Momentary Lapse of Reason”)

Opinion: Only 6 for males compared to 7 for females. Not fair. Haha. If you want me to add one more spot, I would add in Kevin Cheng. He deserved it from his good role in ‘Eye In The Sky’.

My Favourite TVB Drama
“Captain of Destiny”

Opinion: I’m also happy for ‘Captain of Destiny’ series to win this. So far it is an awesome drama with great storyline, great performances (except Grace), and fantastic visual effects and editing. It will end tonight with its final episode. This is the only series of the year so far that I have been intensely catching up to every night.

My Favourite TVB Variety Programme
“Sunday Songbird”

My Favourite TVB Informative Programme
“Not Far but Away”

My Favourite Onscreen Couple
Edwin Siu & Priscilla Wong (“Madam Cutie on Duty”)

Opinion: Many knew they are going to win since many people find this pairing very likable and they are really a real-life couple now. I find their chemistry is there eventhough I have not actually watch the series with them pairing. If omitting them, the next nice pairing I can think for now is Alex Fong and Linda Chung in ‘Limelight Years’. Kevin Cheng and Tavia Yeung in ‘Eye In The Sky’ is also not bad.

My Favourite TVB Theme Song
“Eye in the Sky” – Alfred Hui & Hubert Wu

Opinion: I already forgot how this theme song sounds. So, it is not memorable and I don’t think it should win this. The song by Jinny Ng for series ‘Young Charioteers’ or the song by Fred Cheng for series ‘Captain of Destiny’ are better in my opinion.

My Favourite TVB Variety Show Host
Adam Cheng, Liza Wang & Jerry Lamb (“Sunday Songbird”)

Best New TVB Artiste
Grace Chan

Opinion: Must they hand out this award to her? She must be getting some kind of attention this year from her satisfactory performance in ‘Raising The Bar’ but awful acting with overly exaggerated expressions in ‘Captain of Destiny’. Well, I do pity her to take on female leading role so quick since she just joined in the industry not long ago. It’s too fast for her and it’s usual that she could not catch up. Okay la…give her this award. No more than that for the moment. It’s a bad decision to bring up a newbie artist too fast.

Most Improved Artiste
Tracy Chu

Opinion: Didn’t watch any series with her in it this year too. Well, I think she acted more natural and I couldn’t think of any other name for this award already.

Star of the Stars Awards
Liza Wang
Adam Cheng

Opinion: These two veterans are honoured with special prize this year. I must say Liza Wang has been an active actress (taking on two roles this year; in Limelight Years and in Master Of Destiny) despite her age. Her active involvement should be complimented. But wait…I didn’t see Adam Cheng in any television series for a very long time already. Well,  he is a respected veteran actor but this award for him seems too much for me. I prefer to award this to the other veteran actors who are still very active in television series until these days.

BottomSlim The Perfect Figure Award
Linda Chung

Tokyo Bust Express The Sassy Award
Grace Chan

Next up is the TVB Star Awards Malaysia 2015 to be held on the last weekend of November before the prestigious TVB Anniversary Awards in December at Hong Kong.

    Enjoyed reading your review. I cringed at Grace’s triumph and I am praying hard that I don’t have to see next month in Malaysia ! Kate and Myolie have left, hence no award ! In reality, the result is based on who TVB wants to promote – period ! Ruco can act but fast becoming a bore like Tavia.

      Thanks. but so far, i still enjoyed ruco’s acting. he is talented in it. as for tavia, she keep on getting boring roles nowadays. she should actually choose roles and not just taking all roles given to her. well i guess she have no choice since there is not much leading actresses in tvb now and she is still a contracted artist under TVB.
