Although the 43rd TVB Anniversary Awards ended Sunday night, but the audience are very unsatisfied with the results, bashing TVB for giving "Best Series" to "Can't Buy Me Love." Even well-known director Johnnie To was surprised when he was announcing the winner of "Best Series." Before announcing the winner, Johnnie seems to look highly on "No Regrets" and said: "Then it's definitely a fair game!" However, he was surprised after looking at the winner envelope: "Huh? It's not that one...Can't Buy Me Love!"
The director expressed through his secretary that he actually did not watch these 2 anniversary series. But he thought "No Regrets" was the most popular since most people at the show seem to be supporting it, that was why he did not know how to react when he saw the result. He did not prepare anything to say because he only came to present the award.
Not only "Best Series," viewers are also not satisifed with Raymond Lam winning "My Favorite Male TV Character" over the hot favorite Moses Can. They complain TVB sacrificed Moses and only let him win a consolation prize ("Best Professional Performance Award").
Broadcast Authority received 15 complaints yesterday about the result of "Best Series" is not fair. TVB received 32 different opinions towards the award ceremony: 16 about "No Regrets" should win "Best Series"; 4 about Raymond should not win "My Favorite"; 4 about appreciating actors and staff of "No Regrets"; 2 about Wayne Lai deserves winning; 5 about Charmaine Sheh had a breakthrough in "Can't Buy Me Love" and should win TV Queen; 1 about "Can't Buy Me Love" and "No Regrets should win "Best Series" together.
Producer of "Can't Buy Me Love" Mui Siu Ching expressed the two series have their own fans. She is very happy to receive congratulations from the producer of "No Regrets" Lee Tim Sing. Everyone worked hard for the series already. The award ceremony is over now and now she needs to focus in "Forensic Heroes 3."
Producer Lee frankly admitted feeling disappointed. When the result was announced, everyone was shocked a little. But since it is already decided, he can only feel helpless about it. He feels happy for Wayne and Sheren Tang winning TV King and Queen two consecutive years. Evergreen Mak is excellent and Dominic Lam, another hot favorite for "Best Supporting Actor," only lost a little bit.
