Rosina Lam’s (林夏薇) win for “Best Actress” at the 2021 TVB Anniversary Awards (萬千星輝頒獎典禮2021) show was seen as an upset with many people rooting for Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) to take the award. This was Rosina Lam’s first win after being in the industry for 17 years and meeting opposition from her mother for becoming an actress. Rosina Lam won for her role as “Grace” in“Battle Of The Seven Sisters” (七公主), which required a semi-nude scene and tackling multiple personalities from her.
Even so, Chinese netizens on Weibo protested Rosina Lam winning best actress and left many harsh words under TVB’s official Weibo account. Chinese actor, Chen Xiao (陈晓), who was classmates with Rosina Lam at the Central Academy of Drama, made a post congratulating her win. He wrote, “First Class of 2005 at the Central Academy of Drama Performance Major, classmate Lin Xiawei, heard you got best actress.”
Several of netizens left comments questioning Chen Xiao’s post like, “If you really love TVB, then you should stay silent.” Chen Xiao responded, “I am already used to being silent, why should I still be silent?”. Another netizen wrote, “Chen Xiao, you like watching TVB so much, please speak with your conscience. Is Lin Xiawei worthy of best actress?” He responded, “With conscience, experts fighting, both are awesome. With conscience, a classmate gets an award, if it was you, you would also be happy.”
