TVB has just announced the nominees for the 2012 Anniversary Awards today. Ben Wong (黃智賢), who is said to be a strong contender for the Best Supporting Actor award is shockingly left out from the nominees list. Viewers have also praised the actor for his evil character, Poon Sir in Highs and Lows .
There are a few surprises for the Best Supporting Actor nominees. Elliot Ngok (岳華), Ram Chiang (蔣志光) and Jazz Lam have all made it into the top ten of the Best Supporting Actor award. Ben, who won the Best Supporting Actor last year was shockingly excluded from the nominees.
Dumbfounded with the nomination results, Ben said, “I am so surprised and of course disappointed! I am not sure what the criteria is for nomination. The one-person-one-vote is all about fairness and public wishes. I do not where the fairness is now that I am not even nominated. Why is it that Poon Hok Lai is not nominated”.
Ben further added, “My chances are taken away for nothing. I don’t even have a chance to be voted. I can’t believe that this character, Poon Hok Lai is not even in the top 10”.
Ben, Power Chan (陳國邦) and and Koo Ming Wah (古明華) are widely speculated to be the hot favourites for the Best Supporting Actor. Ben’s co-star, Kate Tsui (徐子珊) is surprised knowing that Ben is left out of the nomination.
Highs and Lows producer, Lam Chi Wah (林志華) expressed his disappointment and said, “I am shocked and disappointed. I am not sure what the criteria is for the top 10 nominees. Actually, everyone can’t differentiate whether he is a leading or supporting actor. I feel that he is a leading actor. Everyone saw how much efforts he had put in. Although the award is important but what’s more important is the opportunities that the company gives him from now on.”
