In recent years, the award for 'Best Actress' has been more focused on compared to the 'Best Actor' award. Is it because the females are said to be 'fighting for awards'? Whatever it is, [to me] there are bigger contenders for the 'Best Actor' award this year. You have veteran powerhouse General Chai Damian Lau, the soul character of "Burning Flame" Ah Cow Wong He, superb actor Chai Gau Wayne Lai, three-time 'Actor' award winner Gallen Lo, 'Ratings Guarantee' Ah Song Dayo Wong, and the ever-so-charming Li Yi Moses Chan.
My Choice: Wayne Lai
Outstanding performance in "Rosy Business"! He is leading male material. The series has high ratings and positive feedback. He has support from the audience, executives, and colleagues. Also, he has done so much for TVB this year, such as hosting and performing at many of TVB's major events. Why else wouldn't Wayne be 'TV King' this year?
My Favourite TV Male Character
My Choice: Dayo Wong
The best actors are the ones who can play comedy because, if they can do comedy, they can do tragedy ["能夠演喜劇就能夠演悲劇" (quote from Wong Jing)] . Many people tend to underestimate comedians because they see it as 'easier' to play. People don't take into consideration that the actor has to be funny in a non-overacting way. They cannot be over the top or exaggerate their actions. Dayo's comedy is black humour. Mak Tai Song is another favourite added to his works.
Other hot favourites for this category include Michael Tse, Wong He, Gallen Lo, and Wayne Lai. :)
My Choice: Sheren Tang
Never once doubted Sheren's acting abilities. Although I would say this is not her strongest performance compared to her previous roles, it is her time to win 'Best Actress'. Even Catherine Tsang is saying it this time around. (Catherine supported Gigi Lai to win in 2004.) 天時, 地利, 人和...Sheren is definitely winning 'Best Actress'.
My Favourite TV Female Character
My Guess: Charmaine Sheh
Charmaine's role as Lam Miu Miu is different from her past roles. With this series being a comedy, it truly brings out a more refreshing side of Charmaine. Charmaine was great in here, and with her status in TVB, she is definitely qualified to win this award. With or without voting, she deserves to win. :)
My Choice: Tavia Yeung
After many years of supporting Tavia, I am extremely happy that she is finally getting the recognition she deserves. Tavia's career path is progressing step by step. In 2003, Tavia won the award for 'Most Improved Female Artiste' and just last year, she won 'Best Supporting Actress'. Her next goal is to win 'Best Actress', but there is no specified year. And with each step, we [the audience] witness her acting becoming more mature and more in depth. Not only has she improved in her speech, but also in her eyes. The next time you watch Tavia act, take notice of her eyes. You will notice her using the ability of her windows of the soul to become the character.
Yiu Kam Ling is not evil at heart; rather, it was a path she chose to take in order to survive in the palace...just like Moses described Yiu Kam Ling is to his Cho Pei in "Where the Legend Begins".
