Best Actor 2012: Wayne Lai
Thank you Deanie姐 for presenting this award to me.  Having such a talented actress presenting it to me means so much more.  Thank you to all the audience that voted for me.  Thank you to all the The Confidant workers, especially producer Marco Law, our script writer Kwan Chung Ling, all the other film crew, and our Eunuch Five Tigers (Edwin Siu, Raymond Cho, Power Chan, Raymond Wong) and other great actors like Michelle Yim.  I’m really happy because I feel that I am very lucky.  For many years, I thought I would never have the chances to even walk across this stage.  I’ve came back to TVB for ~10 years already.  How many 10 years are in a lifetime?  Coming back to TVB for these 10 years, I really want to thank 珍姐   It is her that helped me step-by-step to come up to this stage.  I want to thank TVB because it is where my acting started.  TVB gave me life experiences, growth, glory… and I hope to share it with the three most important people in my life–my mother, my wife, and my son.  Thank you everybody.  And once again, thank you to all the audience for voting.  Thank you.

Huge shocker!
Like I said earlier, he’s a super talented actor, but I thought the race was between Kenneth and Raymond.  Never knew his fan-base was so huge!  Kenneth’s right about all those “hidden” fans.  Although his Li Lianying role isn’t my favorite, he portrayed the role (as always) very well.  I’m still kinda bummed that Raymond didn’t get it though–he didn’t get anything :( But congrats to Wayne being the second actor to be a 3X TVB King!  Which reminds me… I really miss Gallen Lo (the other three time TVB king); he will always be THE TVB king to me.

Best Supporting Actress 2012: Nancy Wu
…I’m really glad I’m able to pass the third round! (astro, asian, tvb)

Personal thoughts: [#tvb45thoughts]
Not my first pick, but second.  Although I prefer Elena Kong, Nancy still very much deserves this award.  The very first role that stood out to me was CoCo in Triumph in the Skies.  In recent years, she’s been giving a very solid performance in every drama.  She’s not on my “favorites” list, but great actress nonetheless.

I didn’t think it was a good idea that the top 2 has to announce who’s the winner.
It really sucks for the one who doesn’t get it.  I’m sure Mandy knew she wasn’t gonna get it since she got Most Improved and she’s really good friends with Nancy, so it wasn’t that bad.  But for BSA…

Best Supporting Actor: Koo Ming Wah
…thank you so much to DID’s producer, Poon Ka Tak.  If it wasn’t for him, Koo Ming Wah wouldn’t be able to work in TVB for a long time.  If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be able to get this award because he took me out from the voice over department and gave me this role. 
…lastly, I need to thank all my fans for supporting me.  When I already gave up on myself, but all these years, they haven’t given up on me…

Personal thoughts: [#tvb45thoughts]
This was such a close battle between him and Power Chan.
Like I mentioned earlier, it sucks how TVB have the person with the second highest votes announcing and handing the award to the winner.  It’s so sad!  Personally, I liked Power’s portrayal of Pang Sam Shun more than Koo Lo’s portrayal of So Gay.  The reason why I ended up rooting for him though is because he had a really difficult acting career and because I didn’t think he was capable of a role like So Gay.  He’s been typecast mostly as a criminal, thug, irresponsible father–all things “bad”, so him doing exceptionally well as “So Gay” was amazing.  Since he’s typecast mostly as a “bad” guy, his roles are limited, probably only appearing for a few episodes in each drama.  I’m really glad he finally has some legit recognition for his hard work and talent.  I hope he would continue to bring more the table and be recognize by the audience as Koo Ming Wah rather than So Gay.
