At the TVB Awards show, it was announced there was a total of 1.54 million votes, Wayne got 114,947 and Tavia got 110,795 of the votes; When Heaven Burns got 84,472 votes. The audience doubted these results and believes it was calculated incorrectly.
173 Complainers Displeased with Results
Yesterday the broadcasting authority received 110 complaints of the unfair award results; unsatisfied that TVB wouldn't publicize the voting results; and not enough time for the award presenters and winners to speak. TVB received 63 complaints for the same reasons.
Raymond was 'desperate' for the TV King title and had a huge group of fans' support. Last night, the fans waited for their idol outside of TVB and once Raymond appeared, one fan got very emotional and teared up: "We really support you!" Raymond said thankfully: "You guys are my best award!" Fans gave him a DIY 'Happy Sir' figure as a gift. Raymond said: "I'm disappointed I wasn't able to go on stage to thank my family and my loving fans. I will continue to work hard. Actually each candidate was a hot favorite, I just faced it calmly, but I did think this year's voting system was very fun and exciting. I saw Wayne backstage and told him I felt a little nervous because there are a lot of supportive fans. I feel regretful that I never collaborated with Wayne, he is a senior I respect. (You have better hopes for the music awards?) I just hope to have more rehearsal time and not focus too much on the awards." Later, Raymond joined Kate Tsui, Mandy Wong, Virgina Lok and Tommy Leung for a midnight snack. Raymond and Kate paid for the meal. He expressed the gathering was arranged earlier on, whether they bring home awards or not. Mandy celebrated her birthday early.
Kate lost the TV Queen award, but got the 'My Favorite TV Female Character' award instead. She said over 30 fans celebrated with her outside of TVB city with champagne and cake. She was very touched. Kate expressed Tavia Yeung wasn't her enemy in the TV Queen race, nor does she feel disappointed. She expressed she tried her best to get votes and has no regret. In the process, she gained love from her friends and colleagues, and thanked everyone who voted for her. She believes working at TVB from here on out will be very enjoyable and she'll continue working hard next year. Netizens attacked Tavia online, Kate said its all-citizen voting, she got the award because audience supported her and people shouldn't get too excited. She said she did chat with Tavia and gave her a hug backstage. She asked the public not to be so sensitive.
