Source: The New PaperBeing on cloud nine can cause temporary forgetfulness.At least, that seemed to be the case for popular Hong Kong star Tavia Yeung, who bagged her career- first Best Actress In A Leading Role accolade at the 45th TVB Anniversary Awards on Monday night.The slender and elegant 33-year-old was highly emotional on stage as she clutched her trophy tightly, fighting back tears as she thanked a long list of people, including her manager, producers and her dearest mummy.But out of so many names, she left out possibly the most important one ‘“ her hunky beefcake, otherwise known as the man in her life.Yeung has been linked to fellow actor Him Law, 28, since they starred in TVB hit medical series The Hippocratic Crush earlier this year.While the pair have never outrightly admitted to dating, their romance is an almost open secret within the TV industry.Earlier this month, at Malaysia’s Astro on Demand Awards in Kuala Lumpur, their colleague, actor Raymond Lam teased the two and urged them to “quickly get married‘.Law also reportedly gave a public shout-out to Yeung after receiving an award, much to the delight of his fans.But there was no reciprocation of affection by Yeung on Monday at TVB’s annual glitzy fiesta at TVB City at Tseung Kwan O New Town.The actress was a front runner for the Best Actress race from Day One and she won for her role as a Peking Opera singer- turned-wealthy man’s fourth wife in the period drama Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles.When her win was announced, she hugged many of her good friends in showbiz, including Kenneth Ma and Elena Kong.But she didn’t even give Law a glance. And when cameras focused on him, Law was looking all choked up and rubbing his red eyes.Backstage, in an interview with reporters, Yeung tried to explain that she “had too many people to thank and amid the frenzy, forgot to thank some‘.She said: “If he (Law) had won tonight, I’d definitely be touched and happy for him too.“It was a very touching moment earlier... He’s the sort who gets ruled by emotions pretty easily. (I’d tell him), so zyu (silly pig in Cantonese, which is a term of endearment), don’t cry."
