Starhub TVB Awards 2017

I have been a fan of TVB dramas for the longest time and seriously, this is how I learnt to speak Cantonese. I can't be happier to meet the TVB stars in Sands Theatre, Marina Bay Sands.

There was a red carpet at 5pm which I couldn't attend as I was watching Crazy Horse Paris - Forever Crazy in another theatre.

The posh purple stage

The awards show began with performance by Nancy Sit who a lot of us know her as 好姨.

And finally, the TVB stars are on the stage. Spot any of your favourite actors / actresses?

Please be prepared to see lots of back views especially one particular's man head.

The first award was TVB Best Newcomer which goes to Roxanne Tong 湯洛雯 and Brian Tse 謝立文). One of Roxanne's latest works is The Tofu War 燦爛的外母 but I remember her as Icy in The Mind Hunter 心理追兇.

The next award was Favourite TVB Female Character which has 2 winners, Sisley Choi 蔡思貝 and Tracy Chu 朱千雪. Both of them acted in Legal Mavericks 踩過界.

Part of the cast of ABTM 4 were on stage to present the next award,

Before the Favourite Actor and Actress are announced, we have the privilege of listening to Gem Tang's live singing for 2 songs namely 泡沫 and 光年之外. And i thought I saw her music producer Lupo Groinig sitting among the audience.

The Favourite Actress award goes to Ali Lee 李佳芯 who starred as a judge in Legal Mavericks.

The Favourite Actor award goes to Vincent Wong who starred as a blind lawyer in Legal Mavericks. I did expect him to win.

Before the awards show end, we have George Lam 林子祥 to perform 2 songs for us. His voice is still as powerful.

It was quite an amazing experience for me and the chance to take a group photo with the stars. Never have I ever thought I would have the chance.
