We’re down to the final home stretch…anyone besides the contestants, and me are excited??? =)
With few hours left before the ceremony begins, I will now do a round of “Pre-TVB 39th Anniversary Awards Night” wrap-up…

Just Some Background Info:

The Anniversary Awards Ceremony to be taken place tonight (in HK time) in Hong Kong will mark the 10th year of TVB’s awards presentation. Inspired by ATV’s year-end awards, TVB decided to launch their own awards ceremony in 1997, giving recognition to actors and actresses, as well as background crew members that provide efforts to the ultimate success to TVB series. Since 1997, TVB awards have become a tradition, while creating yet another topic for Hong Kong (and overseas) fans to be excited about.

This year…

What's so special about this year's awards ceremony is that it is TVB's first ever stand alone anniversary awards ceremony ever, resulting in three different shows in celebrating TVB's anniversary this year. Is it a good thing or bad thing? never know...everything has to have a beginning...

As far as I know, there will be one performance on the awards night, which is a dance done by Kenneth Ma, Kenny Wong, Fala Chan, Sharon Luk, etc. As for the MC for the night, it will be Carol (Dodo) Cheng.

The results from paper voting are in, letting the temporary top 5 lists released throughout this week. The temporary top 5 are as follows (posting here again)…

Something to keep in mind…

As TVB’s panel of judges have authority to determine the final result, the temporary top 5 lists are not set in stone. The official top 5 for each category will be released short moment before the awards are given. So, if anyone is getting worried and angry about the top 5 lists, keep in mind that there are rooms of adjustments…
