It was a star-studded affair at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre last night, with Hong Kong A-listers flying in for the annual Starhub TVB Awards.
Just like last year, celebrities took a walk down the “green carpet” to greet their fans, who were out in full force armed with lit-up signboards and gigantic posters. Ceremony hosts King Kong and Elaine Yiu were the first to grace the carpet, followed by a bevy of local stars such as the Ah Boys to Men cast, Ilo Ilo actress Yeo Yann Yann and Lady First Singapore’s “ladies team”.
Finally, making their grand entrances in pairs or trios were the TVB artistes, which included Raymond Lam, Linda Chung, Kate Tsui, Bosco Wong, Tavia Yeung, Niki Chow, Michael Miu, Jaime Chik, Myolie Wu, Kenneth Ma, Michelle Yim, Ruco Chan, Mandy Wong, Christine Kuo, Him Law, Jason Chan and Mag Lam.
A total of 31 trophies presented across 20 categories were given away during the three-hour show, which, in addition to the award presentations, was peppered with several live performances by Mag Lam, the finalists of The Voice of the Stars and more.
Hugely popular drama Triumph in the Skies II, unsurprisingly, emerged as the evening’s biggest champion, scoring three wins out of its five nominations – My Favourite TVB Male and Female TV Character for Julian Cheung and Myolie respectively, as well as My Favourite TVB Drama. The series also picked up the award for Singapore Media’s Favourite TVB Drama.
