    The 2020 TVB Anniversary Awards named Sisley Choi (蔡思貝) Best Actress for her performance in Legal Mavericks 2 <踩過界 II>, successfully beating out another favorite Katy Kung (龔嘉欣). Some netizens did not think Sisley is ready for the award yet, and believed that Katy who has been with TVB for more years deserved Best Actress instead of the consolation awards she received. Nevertheless, both actresses are overjoyed with their awards and being recognized for their performances.

    Sisley Comments on Winning Best Actress

    Sisley’s career is growing at a rapid pace since joining the entertainment industry seven years ago. In 2017, she won the Most Popular Female Character Award for Legal Mavericks <踩過界> and the sequel elevated her to an even higher pedestal. While confessing that winning Best Actress has always been one of her goals, Sisley never thought about how long it would take to earn the title. Instead, Sisley felt it was rewarding when her colleagues congratulated her and commented on her growth.

    “I work hard and hope that I can do well in every aspect. It’s not just in acting, but also how I interact with people. I strive for improvement in even the finest details. Since participating in Miss Hong Kong until now, the road was not easy. I don’t want to make false promises, so I want to prove myself with my actions. Right now, I am very happy.” The actress, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder three years ago, has to learned to cherish herself more.

    When asked if her rumored boyfriend Hubert Wu (胡鴻鈞) congratulated her yet, Sisley responded, “I didn’t bump into him after receiving the award, but he wished me good luck. I will celebrate with him since we are friends.”

    Katy Sincerely Thanks the Audience

    Although Katy was a strong contender for Best Actress, she ended winning up two awards: Most Popular Female Character for Hong Kong Love Stories <香港愛情故事> and Malaysia’s Favorite TVB Actress for Death by Zero <殺手>. Flattered by the recognition, Katy thanked the audience for their support, “This time, I am glad that they gave me a lot of encouragement. Having viewers’ recognition is very important to me.”

    Owen Overjoyed with Two Awards

    Like Katy, Owen Cheng (張振朗) confessed that he never imagined that he would win any awards and felt moved seeing his co-stars Sisley and Vincent from Legal Mavericks 2 win TVB’s Best Acting awards. For this reason, Owen’s mind went blank after winning the Most Popular Male Character Award and the Best Partnership Award (alongside Vincent and Brian Chu 朱敏瀚) for their performances in Al Cappuccino <反黑路人甲>

    Due to the shock and strong emotions of being called up to the stage, Owen accidentally left out his girlfriend and ViuTV actress Renci Yeung (楊偲泳) in his winning speech. When the media asked if it was intentional, Owen replied, “She will understand. I thank her every day. We will celebrate with a dinner with just the two of us.”

      I haven't seen Legal Mavericks 2 and I have to admit I like Katy Kung in that nut character in Death by Zero. Nevertheless, this is crazy ... it's about quality of performance, not years of service.

      I'm watching LM 1 right now and it's ok, I can see they added the Daredevil/Matt Murdock power sort of to Vincent's character and I'm kind of eh on that part...

      I see. I never did watch LM1. So, can't really speak to that either. I tend to just watch the more light-hearted series - so, I can say I enjoyed Sisley Choi as an actress in that series with Dicky Cheung as warlord. Pretty good actress.
