The highly anticipated 2012 TVB Anniversary Awards is scheduled in December. The competition for the TV King title has already heated up.

Raymond Lam (林峯) is said to be a hot favourite for this year 2012 TV King title. His new drama, “Highs and Lows” has achieved over 30 points of ratings after broadcasting for only a week. Raymond’s character as a police officer is also very well-liked by audiences, giving him an edge over his competitors.

As Raymond is filming for a mainland drama in December, he may not be in time to attend the awards ceremony. There were precedents that artists who attended the awards ceremony were likely to win the awards.

When asked if he was worried that it would affect his chances, Raymond replied, “If I won any awards, I will of course hope to personally receive the awards.”

Does it imply that if Raymond appear at the awards ceremony, he is likely to win the TV King? Raymond said, “Is there such a thing? I do not know! If I could not make it in time, does it mean my chances are gone?”

Many TVB actors such as Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) and Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) have crossed over to mainland to film its dramas due to its lucractive fees. Raymond is also said to seek permission from TVB to let him participate in the mainland dramas.

Raymond will be collaborating with his ex-partner, Michelle Ye (葉璇) in the mainland drama, “Legend of The Purple Hairpin” . As Michelle is the producer of this drama, Raymond gives a discounted fee of 200,000 yuan per episode. Hence, Raymond will pocket 6 million yuan after the filming!

Here’s a look at the favourites of TV King race:

Raymond Lam: “Highs and Lows”

Raymond is said to be leading in the race currently.


Kevin Cheng: “Ghetto Justice 2”
Kevin won the award last year, so his chances reduce this year.


Wayne Lai: “King Maker”

Compared to Rosy Business  series, Wayne’s performance is not as outstanding.


Moses Chan: “The Last Steep Ascent”
As Moses Chan’s drama is currently airing, his character could leave a lasting impression to the audiences.
Kenneth Ma: “The Hippocratic Crush” <On Call 36小時>
Kenneth’s doctor role is a hot favourite, but it’s a pity that his drama was aired in the first half of the year. He is currently overshadowed by Raymond and Moses.
Chin Kar Lok: “Divas In Distress”
Kar lok is an underdog as his drama is positively reviewed by audiences.
Asian Pop News:
Wondering where is Bosco Wong? His drama “Witness Insecurity” also has a high ratings. As this year TV King title is likely to be voted by public, Raymond may clinch the title given his huge fan base!
