It’s the time of the year again for those in Hong Kong. Who’s going to get it? Who won? Consecutive win? First time winning? Who’s the award presenter for that award? We’ll find out on December 16th, 2013, for the TVB 46th Anniversary Award. For now, these are my predictions:
Who Should Win: Bosco Wong (A Change of Heart)
Who I Think Will Win: Kenneth Ma (The Hippocratic Crush II)
-As much as people say Chilam should win for his Captain Cool character from Triumph in the Skies II, he is not a contracted TVB artist, so chances are low. Bosco did a good job portraying twins in A Change of Heart, but since The Hippocratic Crush II is airing right now, chances are higher that Kenneth will win for his popular role.
Who Should Win: Linda Chung (Brother’s Keeper)
Who I Think Will Win: Linda Chung (Brother’s Keeper)
-There were different criticisms about Linda’s character as Rachel in Brother’s Keeper, but I think it’s time she wins. Kate might have a chance as well, as they are the only ones on the list who haven’t won Best Actress yet and are TVB contracted actresses. Although, if Nikki was nominated for A Change of Heart instead of Sergeant Tabloid, she would have had a higher chance.
My Favorite Male Character
Who Should Win: Ruco Chan (Brother’s Keeper)
Who I Think Will Win: Chilam Cheung (Triumph in the Skies II)
-Sam (portrayed by Ruco Chan) from Brother’s Keeper was a character that viewers saw changing from good to bad to the worst and then back to good. But, his toughest competitor is Captain Cool (portrayed by Chilam Cheung) from Triumph in the Skies II. Captain Cool won the hearts of many fans, so this will probably be Chilam’s award.
My Favorite Female Character
Who Should Win: Fala Chan (Triumph in the Skies II)
Who I Think Will Win: Priscilla Wong (Reality Check)
-Holiday (portrayed by Fala Chan) from Triumph in the Skies II was bubbly and confused all at the same time. But, she was likable and funny as well. But, with TVB politics, May (portrayed by Priscilla Wong) from Reality Check might win instead as she is one of the few who started out playing female leads instead of supporting female roles.
Best Supporting Actor
Who Should Win: Benz Hui (Bounty Lady)
Who I Think Will Win: Ron Ng (Triumph in the Skies II)
-Kenji (Benz Hui) plays the funny and immature brother in Bounty Lady, but Issac (Ron Ng) and Summer’s (Myolie Wu) storyline from Triumph in the Skies II was well received, so Ron might have a higher chance at this award.
Best Supporting Actress
Who Should Win: Rachel Kan (Beauty at War)
Who I Think Will Win: Elena Kong (Triumph in the Skies II)
-I didn’t watch Beauty at War, but Rachel Kan is a good actress and has dwelled in TVB for so long already. It’s time she gets recognized! But, Heather (portrayed by Elena Kong) from Triumph in the Skies II was quite popular too, for her steamy love relationship with Roy (portrayed by Kenneth Ma), so she might win instead. But, I see both of them actresses who can act and bring out each character.
Most Improved Male Artist
Who Should Win: Jason Chan
Who I Think Will Win: Vincent Wong
-Jason Chan has been in TVB for a while, but his good looks and perfect British-accent English has earned him many fans and the next ‘perfect bachelor’ title. Jason Chan has been playing first lead roles already, so I think TVB should give him the award. Him Law has always been known for his muscular body, but after his portrayal as ‘Onion’ from The Hippocratic Crush I and II, being involved with a love relationship between Crystal Li and Eliza Sam, he might bring home the award. Vincent Wong might also have a chance, as his portrayal of a spoiled-rich playboy from Will Power.
Most Improved Female Artist
Who Should Win: Eliza Sam
Who I Think Will Win: Eliza Sam
-Eliza Sam was still a newbie when she was nominated for multiple award categories last year for her role as ‘Hannah’ in Divas in Distress, and TVB has been promoting her crazily in the past few months, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if she wins.
Who Should Win: Johnson Lee (Office of Practical Jokes)
Who I Think Will Win: Tony Hung and Priscilla Wong (The Pilgrimage of Wealth II)
-I’ve only watched two out of five from this category. I think The Super Trio has the ratings, but their show is not as comedic anymore. Johnson Lee pranking other artistes and people were well received and thought out. But Tony Hung and Priscilla Wong seemed to have came out of nowhere and received many good opportunities. This might be another surprised opportunity for them.
Best Variety Show
Who Should Win: The Voice of the Stars
Who I Think Will Win: The Voice of the Stars
-I didn’t watch The Voice of the Stars, but seeing how TVB promotes them by bringing them to every show, it’s obvious.
Who Should Win: Triumph in the Skies II
Who I Think Will Win: Triumph in the Skies II
–Triumph in the Skies II had the grand cast, multiple locations, and brought home good ratings, so this will be it, hands down!
Best Informative Program
Who Should Win: The Pilgrimage of Wealth II
Who I Think Will Win: Good Cheap Eats
-I didn’t watch a single one of the programs from the top 5, so these are just random guesses.
