2017 TVB Anniversary Awards Predictions

2017 TVB Anniversary Awards Predictions

The 2017 TVB Anniversary Awards is just around the corner, and with half of the nominees for Best Actor and Actress already revealed, it is time for some major TV King and Queen predictions.

For this season, the 2017 TVB Anniversary Awards will not be held until January 2018—perhaps this extended time is to make room for anniversary dramas My Ages Apart <誇世代> and Heart and Greed <溏心風暴3> to run for the race. My Ages Apart, which stars Bobby Au-yeung (歐陽震華) and Moses Chan (陳豪), won’t air its last episode until January 12, 2018. Heart and Greed will end its run on January 19, 2018.

For this reason, it seems highly likely that Bobby Au-yeung, Moses Chan, and Heart and Greed’s Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) and Ha Yu (夏雨) would make it into the top five Best Actor nominations for their performances in their respective dramas. This dampens Vincent Wong (王浩信) and Kenneth Ma’s (馬國明) chances to win TV King, despite their popularity.

Though Ali Lee (李佳芯) won Best Actress for her role in Legal Mavericks <踩過界> back in October in Singapore, the possibility of her making it into top five nominations at the anniversary awards is not high. Ali Lee’s Best Actress nomination is not for her performance in Legal Mavericks but in My Ages Apart, which is not getting the same amount of buzz.

What are your predictions for TV King and Queen?

    TV Dramas: Bad Boys No Longer the Trend

    Once upon a time not so long ago, bad boys were something that all drama-loving girls would fall for. From Meteor Garden’s <流星花園> Dao Mingsi to Devil Beside You’s <惡魔在身邊> Ahmon, bad boys were the trend that defined idol dramas of the 2000’s.

    But as we officially hit the late 2010’s, it appears that bad boys are no longer the main act for business. Starting with 2011’s In Time with You <我可能不會愛你>, the “sweet boy”—or warm boy (暖男)—became the one where all girls would fall for. Gone were the days when girls would chase after angsty boys who were broken and mistaken; now all they want is someone who is kind, loving, and supportive.

    This transition from bad boy and good boy isn’t just happening to Taiwan and Korea—its influence is affecting Hong Kong dramas too. Manipulative bad boys like Bosco Wong’s (黃宗澤) Sheldon in 2016’s Two Steps from Heaven <幕後玩家> got more hate than love, while simpler characters like Kenneth Ma’s (馬國明) Ma Kwai in The Exorcist’s Meter <降魔的> is getting all the love letters. In fact, Kenneth’s good, obedient image is the reason why he is still so popular with girls, despite not having the handsome looks of Bosco Wong nor the athletic image of Vincent Wong (王浩信).

    The formula for popularity is changing, and it’s exciting to know what would happen next.

    “Forensic Heroes 4” in the Making? Kenneth Ma, Joey Meng Among Rumored Cast

    “Forensic Heroes 4” in the Making? Kenneth Ma, Joey Meng Among Rumored Cast

    TVB has yet to confirm or deny this piece of information, but judging from a mysterious message left by TVB producer Mui Siu-ching (梅小青), it is possible that the broadcaster is in the midst of creating a fourth installment of Forensic Heroes <法證先鋒>.

    Mui Siu-ching, best known for producing the Forensic Heroes and Beyond the Realm of Conscience <宮心計> franchises, shared on Weibo recently that she has been learning about new forensic science equipment. She uploaded a series of photos featuring TVB production staff investigating new forensic tech, which led to the speculation that the producer is working on a new project, possibly Forensic Heroes 4.

    She wrote, “Daily renewal, monthly change. Forensics technology has improved a lot. Never stop learning in life. Gain new knowledge.”

    The successful police procedural drama series first premiered in June 2006 and starred Bobby Au-yeung (歐陽震華), Frankie Lam (林文龍), Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧), and Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣). The sequel was released in May 2008, with the addition of new cast members Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) and Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎). In 2011, TVB rebooted the franchise with a new story and cast, starring Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Maggie Cheung (張可頤), Ron Ng (吳卓羲), Kate Tsui (徐子珊), Edwin Siu (蕭正楠), and Aimee Chan (陳茵媺).

    Rumors say that Forensic Heroes 4 will be yet another reboot, and it is said that TVB is looking to cast Kenneth Ma (馬國明) and Joey Meng (萬綺雯) in the lead roles.

    Kenneth Ma and Moon Lau Teased about Chest-Touching Scene in “The Exorcist’s Meter”

    Kenneth Ma and Moon Lau Teased about Chest-Touching Scene in “The Exorcist’s Meter”

    The Exorcist’s Meter <降魔的> costars, Kenneth Ma (馬國明) and Moon Lau (劉佩玥), attended a TVB function and was teased about their chest-grabbing scene in a recent episode. In the scene, Kenneth touched Moon’s chest. In response to his action, Moon slapped Kenneth across the face, reprimanding him for being a creep.

    Known for his jokingly flirtatious demeanor, reporters teased whether Kenneth enjoyed filming the scene. The cheeky actor said, “Of course! This is every man’s dream!”

    Moon, who stood beside him, clarified, “That’s not the entire truth. At first, Kenneth told me not to add protection padding. But right before we were to start filming the scene, he told me to add the protection padding! He said it’s better if I did. In the end, I ended up using it. But it didn’t really matter, because I wore a thick sweater on the outside. He wouldn’t be able to feel anything anyway!”

    Jokes aside, Kenneth praised Moon for her work ethics. “I think Moon is great. She’s very professional. The director told me to just go in for the touch and it would be okay. Actually, there wasn’t much feeling because there were barriers. However, we had several outtakes and had to redo the scenes again from different angles.”

    Did Kenneth talk to his girlfriend, Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎) before filming the scene? Kenneth responded, “No, there’s no need. It is understandable when filming. This scene was very successful. Several of my former schoolmates left messages for me. They said, “It would’ve been great if it were me!”

    Karena Ng, Jacqueline Wong Have Opposite Views on Living Together

    Karena Ng, Jacqueline Wong Have Opposite Views on Living Together

    Artistes have very busy schedules, often traveling out of town to wherever work takes them. It is twice as hard for couples who date within the entertainment industry to find time together. To maximize their time together, Karena Ng (吳千語) and Raymond Lam (林峯) took the big step to move in together.

    Although many believed that the couple moved in together to prepare for marriage, Karena denied the rumors and clarified. “We’re not trying it out for marriage. When [Raymond] returns [to Hong Kong], then I will leave for four months [for work]. We don’t get to see each other very much in a year. Within a year, we only see each other a fifth of the time.”

    However, cohabitating may not be for everyone, especially celebrity couples who have not been dating for very long. Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎) stated that she would live to maintain some independent space away from boyfriend Kenneth Ma (馬國明). She said, “I actually want to live by myself, because I have so many things. My house cannot fit them all. I’ve thought about moving out by myself. I want to have my own space. I may let my parents live in my [current] apartment. I personally would not want to cohabitate before getting married, because I like to have my own space.”

    Although Jacqueline claims that she does not want to move in with Kenneth, reports asserted that she has yet to win the affections of Kenneth’s mother. Jacqueline once again denied the rumors and said, “I have always gotten along well with my seniors and the elderly. [This piece of news] is quite absurd.”

    Kenneth Ma Parodies Himself in New TVB Clip

    Kenneth Ma Parodies Himself in New TVB Clip

    TVB’s online video channel See See TVB dropped a rather strange clip of Kenneth Ma (馬國明) last week, which was basically a three-minute video of Kenneth playing himself. The TVB actor, who takes pride in being the city’s “best deal,” is also known for having a “boring” personality, which Kenneth himself doesn’t mind admitting to.

    In the clip, titled Ma Kwok Ming’s Day Off <馬國明放假一天>, Kenneth stares at himself in the mirror and tries to clean off the muck for a good twenty seconds. He then boils some water and the mindlessly waits for the water to boil. After pouring the boiled water into his instant noodles, he sits down again and waits. He stares at his garbage can, pulls it out, and flattens an empty water bottle. Afterwards, he picks up his noodles and sits on his bed. As he opens the flap, he drops his noodles to the floor.

    Netizens had a good laugh at Kenneth’s awkward scene, and some pointed out that the clip seems to be inspired by a scene from 1990’s Days of Being Wild <阿飛正傳>, where there was a two-minute long scene of Tony Leung (梁朝偉) dressing himself.

    “I actually do think Kenneth Ma’s day off would be pretty boring. Poor Jacqueline BB,” said one netizen. Another added, “Jacqueline did say that sometimes being quiet is a good thing!” One said, “This is hilarious! He really has nothing to do!”

    Natalie Tong, Tony Hung Avoid Each Other After Breakup

    Natalie Tong, Tony Hung Avoid Each Other After Breakup



    Over 160 artistes promoted TVB’s latest mobile app at a special media conference. Although ex-lovers Tony Hung (洪永城) and Natalie Tong (唐詩詠) were present, the pair avoided each other throughout the night and only took a photo together when prompted by reporters.

    Natalie said she saw Tony backstage and briefly chatted. Natalie simply said there was no awkwardness between them and that she is learning to slowly let go of their two-year relationship. Not in a rush to begin a new relationship, Natalie revealed that it is hard to meet the right person in the entertainment industry. Remarking on her emotional state in future relationships, Natalie said every relationship is different and both parties should get to know each other first.

    Since breaking up in May, Tony has been filming nonstop and is currently not dating anyone. “I’m currently very focused on work. Next week, we have to head up to Foshan to film for The Learning Curve of a Warlord <大帥哥>.”

    In September, Tony will be starting a new travel program. Although he originally wanted to host Pilgrimage of Hope 2 <走過烽火大地2>, TVB rejected the idea due to the dangerous conditions of the countries situated in the Middle East. When asked if he has any ideas for a new program, Tony jokingly said maybe his show should be targeted on searching for a wife.

    Jacqueline Doesn’t Mind Kenneth Being Labelled As Her Boyfriend

    Also present at the event was rumored couple, Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎) and Kenneth Ma (馬國明). While playing a game where Kenneth was to guess who was singing, Kenneth jokingly said Mimi Chu (朱咪咪) although he immediately recognized Jacqueline’s voice. On purposely making the wrong guess, Kenneth laughed, “We go to karaoke together, so I thought it would be awkward if I recognized her voice immediately, so I said Mimi Chu who doesn’t sound like her at all. It’s funnier that way.”

    While Kenneth and Jacqueline never formally admitted to dating, Jacqueline said she does not mind if others call Kenneth her boyfriend.

    Filming a kiss scene in their series Deep in the Realm of Conscience <深宮計>, Kenneth and Jacqueline denied having doing retakes on purpose, stressing that they were highly professional about it.
