Charmaine Sheh’s (佘詩曼) performance in Line Walker <使徒行者> is the clear favorite among viewers this year, helping her win multiple Best Actress awards in Southeast Asia.
Although Kate Tsui (徐子珊) rose as a dark horse in the upcoming TVB Anniversary Awards, Kate does not believe she will be able to win over Charmaine.
While Charmaine’s overall popularity is unmatched, Kate received a lot of praise over the Internet for her performance in Tomorrow is Another Day <再戰明天>.
She is a favorite among male viewers and led over Charmaine in an Internet forum poll for Best Actress in a TVB series, reports PopularAsians.
However, TVB is reportedly pushing for Charmaine to win the Best Actress award although she has not filmed for TVB in two years.
Denying that she returned to TVB knowing she would win with Line Walker, Charmaine disclosed, “Filming occurred without an actual script and I didn’t know how the story was going to unfold. I didn’t know if the end result would be well received or not, so [the award] was not part of my plans.”
Charmaine humbly said she only has a 1 in 15 chance in winning because of the strong competitors who have been nominated this year.
Prefers Marriage Over Award
This is the fourth year that Kate has been nominated Best Actress, although her biggest chance was in 2012’s Highs and Lows <雷霆掃毒>.
Losing out on the title every year, Kate said she is happy to be nominated.
“I’m already very lucky. I don’t really have a goal, but my final objective is to get married!”
Admitting she is not up to Charmaine’s level, Kate admitted defeat and said she would vote for Charmaine if she had the chance anyway.
“It is already [an honor] to be compared with Charmaine. We are at different levels and there is a big gap between us.”
