Roger Kwok and Charmaine Sheh Win TV King and TV Queen at 2014 TVB Anniversary Awards
Continuing their domination in television awards this year, Roger Kwok (郭晋安) and Charmaine Sheh (佘诗曼) won TV King and TV Queen respectively at the 48th TVB Anniversary Awards, which concluded on December 15.
Crime drama Line Walker <使徒行者>, which was praised for its suspenseful plot, won Best Drama. Line Walker received 20.3 percent of 50 percent of viewer votes and 41.6 percent of 50 percent of TVB professional judges’ votes. The series was overwhelmingly popular when it was aired on Mainland Chinese streaming platforms, receiving 1.4 billion views.
Roger Kwok Credits Children for Making Him a Better Person and Actor
As the guest presenter for Best Actor, Chilam Cheung (張智霖) attempted to lighten the tension by cracking a joke. Chilam said, “You can win the award even if you’re absent from the ceremony.“ Roger’s expression turned serious and viewers thought that Raymond Lam (林峯) may be the winner. However, Chilam unveiled Roger’s victory and announced that Roger received over 60 percent of combined viewers and TVB professional judges’ votes for his performance in Black Heart White Soul <忠奸人>.
Although this is the third time that Roger has received the TV King title, he was still nervous in accepting the award on stage. He said, “When I dropped off my son at school this morning, I told him Daddy will not be home tonight since I have to attend the awards ceremony. My son told me to bring home all the awards. I told him, ‘Son, I have already taken all the awards. After you and your sister were born, both of you made my love grow, allowing me to lessen undesirable traits such as jealousy and arrogance. This allowed me to face my work comfortably, and for my emotions to flow freely [onscreen].’“ Roger thanked his wife Cindy Au (欧倩怡) and his children for their love and support.
Charmaine Sheh’s Popularity is Unbeatable
Making a strong comeback in Line Walker, Charmaine’s popularity has been unstoppable. Aside from Best Actress, Charmaine also won the My Favorite Female Character award. Charmaine received all 50 percent of votes from TVB’s professional judges’ votes and 28.6 percent of the 50 percent of viewer votes to secure her Best Actress win.
“Thanks to TVB for making my life more interesting. It’s not easy to win an award. It requires many sacrifices and much luck. I’m very lucky to have landed this role and come across a good producer in Jazz Man (文偉鴻).“ With tears in her eyes, Charmaine said, “I frequently have a lot of stress, but [my mother] always has a bright smile for me. I’m very grateful to have you by my side.“
Line Walker also boosted the popularity of its cast members, helping Benz Hui (許紹雄) secure the My Favorite Male Character award.
