2013 46th TVB Anniversary Awards Nomination List

Every year, Hong Kong’s most coveted TV awards ceremony, the TVB Anniversary Awards (Hong Kong’s equivalent to the Emmys) always causes up a stir immediately after the awards for the preceding year is given out. This year was no exception, and a stir there was but this stirred was not on who the awards were to be given out to, but rather on the voting system. Last year, TVB elected for the public to vote on who they think should deserve the awards but this year TVB has changed the voting system to a half-public voting system with the public only having full say with My Favourite Male Character and My Favourite Female Character. Best Drama, Best Actor and Best Actress will be half decided by the public and half decided by a team of professionals consisting of backstage members, including directors, scriptwriters, producers and editors etc. All other awards will be decided by the backstage crew as well as TVB artists. Personally, I think an all-public voting system is the way to go as it is without a doubt that TVB does some handiwork on deciding who to give the awards to. This means that winners who are deserving may go home empty-handed while those who are not ready for this prize yet will take home something that they do not deserve.

This year is home to the 46th annual awards (technically, it isn’t the 46th annual awards because as the Chinese believe that the numbers 4 and 7 are inauspicious, any award year which ended in a 4 or 7 were pushed up a year) and it will be held on Monday, 16th December 2013.

The quality of TVB drama offerings this year have been mediocre at best. TVB is declining in quality dramas each year but every now and then it manages to pull out some deserving performances. Brother’s Keeper is the drama that I did not have much expectations for but it just blew me away! Hopefully it will receive some recognition for the drama that it was. I think that this year there will be a tight battle for Best Actor but there are only two actresses who I feel are worthy to take home Best Actress. The Hippocratic Crush II (AKA On Call 36 Hours II) is on good footing to take home the most awards having scored a nomination in all categories that it is applicable for as well as having scored the most nominations for any one drama.
