King of Votes - Andy Lau

After taking two awards at this year's TVB Anniversary Awards, Charmaine Sheh has beated 'Fat Tin' Myolie Wu to take the award for My Favourite Female TV Actor at yesterday's inaugural Annual Artistes Awards 2006. Raymond Lam won his justice over Kevin Cheng by taking the award for Favourite Male TV Actor.

Eleven award categories were presented at the event, with Andy Lau and Charmaine both taking two awards. It has been a fruitful year for Charmaine this year, as she also took the bronze award for Favourite Music Newcomer, which came as a surprise. She said: "This year has been a very happy one. (Lots of rewards?) Of course! However, I will continue working hard because to stay on top is harder than getting there." After winning five awards this year, is this enough for Charmaine? She smiles that if she can she would like a few more and hopes that she can break into the Mainland awards. She would also like to take a holiday though becaue her family have come to visit her in Hong Kong, but she has not had time to spend with them and it has been many years since they spent Christmas together.

There are rumours that she and Benny Chan have ended their four year relationship, but Charmaine points out that they have always maintained their friendship, so there is no such thing because they have never dated before. She will be filming in the Mainland at Christmas, so does this mean that potential dates will not be able to invite her out? Charmaine laughs that if she has time she would rather spend it with her family.

Raymond Lam beat Ron Ng, Roger Kwok and Kevin Cheng to win the award for Male TV Actor and after finally winning this award, does he feel justice has been served? He smiles that he hopes this time he will not be a 'surprise entry' for Liza for getting into the top five. He says that he has filmed two series this year and 'La Femme Desperado' was the more memorable one for the viewers. He will continue to work hard filming and he still has three or four series in hand that are yet to air. Raymond will be heading out to Beijing shortly to film for "The Drive of Life" and with suggestions that co-star Joe Ma has had scenes cut from this show due to his playboy image, Raymond says he does not have many scenes with Joe, but the roles have been pre-determined already. Talking of his good friend Ron also being caught out recently with Ella Koon being photographed outside his home, Raymond laughs he is unclear about this and he just goes out to eat with his friends usually.

Steven Ma Rejects Gay Relationships

Steven Ma's sexual orientations have always been suspect and yesterday a magazine suggested that he is gay. Taking part in the International Festival of Inclusive Arts yesterday, Steven reacted to the reports with a laugh.

Steven says that regarding this report, he has already spoken about this numerous times in the past. Then, the rumour was that he was having a homosexual relationship with his manager and he has already responded to this. He feels if he has to explain himself every time, then it gets a bit pointless. When the reporters suggest that he should find a girlfriend to quash the rumours, he does not feel that he should use this as a reason to meet a girl and when the point comes when he is ready to get married, then he will definitely reveal this and his family have never worried about his marriage. Steven emphasises that he just has a laugh from these reports and he is glad that they are not saying that he takes drugs, because he is very against this behaviour and will not make friends with drug addicts. Has he been the target of gay men? He smiles he has not, maybe a few suggestions, but no direct propositions. He feels that even if someone tries to court him, then he will just tell them the truth and they can still continue to be friends. If there is body contact, then he would definitely fight back.

Steven will be joining Kate Tsui and Selena Li to perform with three members of the band Wild Zappers, who are deaf and also sing a duet with blind girl as well as singing the 'Chu Song'. Kate and Selena have spent many hours rehearsing for this show and Kate says that one of the band members is a dance choreographer and although he cannot hear the music, he knows how to dance along to the beat and is very professional.
