An article from orisun today reported about some confirmed news of the Anniversary show on November 19th.

First of, the confirmed hosts and hostesses (MCs) for that night are as follows:
Eric Tsang, Nat Chan, Dodo(Carol) Chang, Liza Wang, Amigo Chui and Anna Yau.

*Lydia Shum will be absent from her usual role this year due to her illness.

Next, several performing and entertaining parts for the night are confirmed. Here they are:

A special edition of "Beautiful Cooking" will be held live in the show. This time, the contestants are all "Ah Jie(s)"(Big Sisters), including Liza Wang, Dodo(Carol) Chang, and Nancy Sit. They will be cooking all kinds of expansive food, such as abalone and shark fin.

With the releases of the two albums "All About Men" and "Lady in Red" in the past two years, the singers from both albums will finally have a chance to come together and perform. On the night of the anniversary, the "Men" and the "Women" will be "competing" with each other.

During one part, Actors and Actresses will have to pretend as "wax statues", and be "criticized" and "picked on" by the hosts and hostesses about their rumors and news.

Original Chinese Article:

My thoughts:
So sad to see Fei Jie (Lydia Shum) to be absent from her usual hostess role, and also most likely absent from the entire show as well. Just so used to seeing her every year at the Anniversary...hope that she will get well soon! As for the performing and entertaining parts, I am especially looking forward to the "All About Men" VS "Lady in Red". Must be really fun! =)

PS: So happy to see TVB Cafe reaches 10000 hits today! Don't have much plan to celebrate, but still, I am happy! Thanks for the support to those who are reading my posts...=)

My Critiques and Thoughts:

I am not ready to give out my predictions and picks yet, but here I will state some of my thoughts on this year's nomination list...

-- How the nomination are distributed from the series are not representative enough. Almost all nominations from LWOLAP are missing, and also other series have too many nominations, while others only have a few. Perhaps ratings have to do with this factor...

-- Besides, the arrangement for some of the awards are strange. For example, why would King Sir be qualified for running in "Best Actor" with his character in "Welcome to the House", but not qualified in the "Favorite Character Award"?

-- Glad to see the "Favorite Character" and "Best Series" back! But how many "Favorite Characters" will be chosen? And also, why don't TVB bring back the "Best Couple" award? Certainly a lot of people (including me) miss it!

-- As many have noticed, TVB has included previous "Best Improved" receivers, like Tavia Yeung, Ron Ng, and Shirley Yeung, back into running for the same award again. Why does TVB want to do that?

-- Kind of strange for TVB to put At17, Sammi and Siu Yi, as well as the hosts for "Beautiful Cooking" in the nominations for "Most Improved"...

-- And for the award ceremony on the November 10th, will the format similar to "Oscar Award", like last year's?

I will post up my predictions and picks a little later...=)

TVB 39th Anniversary Month "officially" begins today as Sir Shaw Run Run and 100 TVB artists presented in the "Lighting Ceremony". The group picture is very similar compared to last year's, with Sir Run Run in the middle, accompanied by Liza Wang and Dodo Chang at his sides. The first row is once again dominated by all actresses, with "important" actors follow closely behind in the second row. The casts from "Pearl of Orient" (Lisa Wang, Charmaine Sheh and Roger Kwok) performed a dance, while casts from "Welcome to the House" did a comedy performance. Singers like Joey Yung and Leo Ku are also presented.

And...The Slogan for this year's Anniversary is...

The English translation means: Being in front, Wonderful 39 years!

And to get things going, the voting site for "Anniversary Awards" is up! Here is the page:

The third installment of "Blood-related Relatives" is finally here! Sure took me awhile...but here are them...

Lai Suen and Gigi Lai
Series together before: Not sure...
Relationship: Aunt and Niece (Gigi's father is Lai Suen's brother)

Thoughts: Lai Suen's father actually was a really famous actor awhile ago, and the Lai family has gained a lot of fame throughtout the years. Gigi is actually the third generation of the Lai family in the showbiz industry. Do you recall Gigi said something in 37th anniversary after she received the "Best Actress Award" about her family? She was referring to "keeping the fame" in the Lai Family with her own effort (getting the award).

Kong Yan Yin and Liz Kong Hei Man (Kong Yan Chi)
Series together before: The Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre 2000
Relationship: Sisters

Thoughts: Not sure if everyone remember the Kong sisters, but both of them have appeared in "The Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre 2000" before (the one w/ Lawrence Ng and Gigi Lai). And what really interesting is that they act as "mother and daughter" in HSDS 2000.

Sek Sau and Sam Chan Yu Sum
Series together before: Not sure...but they performed together in 36th Anniversary
Relationship: Father and Son

Thoughts: I think most people know about this already. But some people might ask why do they have different last names? Actually Sek Sau has another offical name, where his real last name is Chan. This is the same case as Jackie Chan, where his real last name is actually "Fong".

Lee Ka Ding, Lee Wing Hon, and Lee Wing Ho
Series together before: Lee Ka Ding and Lee Wing Ho both appeared in "Blade Heart", but not sure about three together in one series...
Relationship: Father and Sons

Thoughts: Actually the entire Lee family (the four of them including father, mother, and the brothers) are all in the showbiz, and have either worked for TVB before or is currently working for TVB. The mother of the Lee brothers is Sze Ming. She has appeared in "Kindred Spirit" as Nancy Sit's brother's wife before. And of course there is a possibility later that Shirley Yeung will be an addition to the family...

Not feeling all too good these days...don't worry...I did fine on my exams and mid-terms...I actually should be happy since I am done with the two-week long torture of exams, tests, and presentations...but...*sigh*...the answer is simply my Astros couldn't make into the playoff this depressing...

Okay, now with some better news concerning TVB. So the "Singers Celebrating TVB Anniversary" will be held on November 4th! Many top stars will be attending, including Andy Lau, Hacken Lee, Eason Chan, Kelly Chen, Joey Yung, Twins, and Denise Ho! However, due to some conflict (?), the singers under Gold Label will not be attending. Those include Miriam Yeung, Leo Ku, Ronald Cheng, Alex Fong, Justin, Stephy and Kary...

Whatever the case is, at least we have the date set in stone, and a list of good singers will be there as well. As predicted as of now, the format will be pretty much the same as previous years, with competition of "Male Singers VS Female Singers". The captains will most likely be Andy Lau and Hacken Lee representing the boys again, and Kelly and Joey representing the girls.

I am excited to see what it will bring, and hope to hear more news soon about anniversary!!!

PS: Hopefully I can get myself working on the sheet music again...and btw, seemed like Face to Fate is quite interesting....
