[Thoughts] TVB Anniversary Awards 2013 - Winner List

Best Actor in a Leading Role: Dayo Wong - Bounty Lady

Dayo was the only TV King nominee that was absent from the awards. Among the top three candidates, the panel gave him the lowest score (19.87), but combined with the votes, he got a total score of 48.04 (second place had 42.29). When it was announced Dayo won the award, it was truly a surprise. The MC Dodo Cheng called Dayo live at the show, and conducted a quick interview with him. Dayo expressed he's in Shanghai and when he learned he just became TV King, he joked and asked who voted for him? When he learned it was half-half by audience and a professional panel, he happily said: "This award is worthy of acknowledgement." [Translated by: aZnangel @ http://asianuniverse.net]

Thoughts: I am still in shock. Wow...I didn't believe it was possible for Dayo to get this award BUT HE DID AND I AM SOOOOOO HAPPY!!! Truly deserving!! This guy is an amazing comedic actor, the way he talks and his body language, he just keeps me glued to the screen.
And I love how Carol called him live at the awards, very sweet haha. If only he was there :P

Best Actress in a Leading Role: Kristal Tin - Brother's Keeper
My Favorite TV Female Character: Yiu Man Ying (Kristal Tin) - Brother's Keeper

This year, there were five awards that allowed the audience to vote; The Most Popular TV Male & Female Character awards were 100% voted by the audience. Best Actor & Actress awards, half voted by the audience and the other half decided by a professional panel of judges. Results, there were 931,487 votes; 100,614 of the votes went to Kristal Tin for Most Popular TV Female Character and 77,948 of the votes went to Chilam Cheung for Most Popular TV Male Character.

Thoughts:  Even though I did not watch 'Brother's Keeper', I am still sure that Kristal is a deserving winner.  She's a solid actress and I am so glad that she came back to TVB.  Always enjoy her onscreen and so CONGRATS for the winning!!!  hehe right now I'm waiting to see her and Roger Kwok in their new upcoming series!

My Favorite TV Male Character: Jayden Koo Ha Yeung (Chilam Cheung) - Triumph in the Skies II

Thoughts: Expected since Captain Koo is pretty popular.

Best Series: Triumph in the Skies II

Thoughts:  Didn't watch this series so no comment.  Expected though, since it was so popular :P

Curious thought, what was your favourite series of the year?  I've only watched a few and only liked some such as Inbound Troubles, Karma Rider, Awfully Lawful, Will Power, Always and Ever (mainly because of Esther Kwan) and of course, Bounty Lady.  Those were the only ones I thoroughly enjoyed....such a short list :/

Best Actor in a Supporting Role: Benz Hui - Bounty Lady
Best Actress in a Supporting Role: Elena Kong - Triumph in the Skies II

When Elena Kong won Best Supporting Actress, she cried emotionally on stage and her colleagues all stood up to applaud for her. She looked up and exclaimed: "Mom, I got the award!" Elena expressed a few years ago, she wanted to give up on acting because she didn't have an audience to watch her performances. She is grateful TVB adopting her and joked she has to thank Kenneth Ma for willing to "swallow" her.

Benz Hui was the Best Supporting Actor winner, everyone stood up to applaud him. During his acceptance speech, he joked and asked whether any of the audience turned off their televisions and expressed TVB is actually very innocent. It is not TVB who issues the TV licenses, the audience should be turning the government off. Benz continued emotionally: "I feel surprised getting this award. Last year I got the most outstanding performance award and this year I get one again." [Translated by: aZnangel @ http://asianuniverse.net]

Thought:  Both are TRULY WORTHY for their winning and I am so happy for their recognition!  Always loved Benz Hui, especially in comedies and Elena is just an amazing and diverse actress!  Congrats!!!

After watching the show, saw that the audience (ie the audience that they were sitting with...?) stood up and clapped for these two :)

Most Improved Actor: Vincent Wong
Most Improved Actress: Eliza Sam

Thoughts: Hands down for Vincent Wong! This guy have been taking on a variety of roles this year and proved that he is deserving of this award! Especially in Will Power, where he portrayed that bastard, Gilbert, it was such surprising transformation! Glad that he was the one who won!

As for Eliza Sam, I'm not sure if I'd say she's the most deserving of the five but I do not object to her winning either. From her debut in Divas in Distress, Eliza took a huge leap, in terms of her emotional scenes.  While this girl can be a bit over the top with her happy scenes, she's just naturally gifted in her emotional scenes. For a newbie, she can surely cry!

Most Outstanding Artists: Suet Nei, Mary Hon, Anderson Junior, Helena Ma, Lau Kong

Thoughts:  Once again some recognition for the veterans, all who've served TVB for so long :)

Best Variety Show Host: Tony Hung, Priscilla Wong - Pilgrimage of Hope

Best Variety Show: Three Amigos Bon Voyage

Lifetime Achievement Award: Lau Siu Ming

Thoughts:  Love this actor!

Mainland China Most Popular TVB Actor: Kevin Cheng
Mainland China Most Popular TVB Actress: Tavia Yeung

Overall Thoughts:  All the results were surprisingly satisfying this year, especially the Best Actor and Actress award :)  An upcoming post regarding the artistes' attire will be up soon!
