TVB 40th Anniversary Award Reactions
The Results Were Overall Not Much of A Surprise: I knew Fala Chen would pick up an award regardless so when she won Best Supporting Actress I was slightly shocked, but I knew it was bound to happen. Kate Tsui won Most Improved which wasn't a HUGE surprise to me because I predicted in my head it would either be Bernice, Fala, or Kate. Bernice Liu has become the Susan Luchi of the TVB world. (For those who don't know Susan Luchi is a popular soap star in the U.S. that always get nominated for decades but never won. Calling someone Susan Luchi is now a slang in the U.S. entertainment world for not winning repeatedly.) Amigo Chui winning Most Improved Actor was really weird since he's a Host NOT Actor.
Moses Chan's win(s)made my day. I could not believe "The Ada Effect" (http://tvbgeneration.blogspot.com/2007/01/who-i-think-will-win-best-actor-in-2007.html) actually struck again. And I could not believe my prediction from like 10 months ago was actually right. I'm gonna go buy a lottery ticket tomorrow. I guess either Michael Miu or Steven Ma will next year.
As far Ray, Gigi, & Lei Si Kei winning the awards they did, I wasnt surprised at all because I predicted them. But Susanna Kwan winning Fav. Female Character & Louis Yuen winning Best Supporting did catch me off guard, but they're part of the "Heart of Greed Entourage" so it was easy to understand. The HOG cast really sucked the life out of the award show itself.
I CRIED when I saw the Lydia Sum Life Time Achievement segment. It was depressing to see how different & skinny she was. Even her voice was not the same. The happy & fat Lydia Sum really lighted up a room, and no matter what she still will light up a room. Her daughter Joyce Cheng singing with Lau Ka Cheung to her was so sad. =(
