Netizens Say Linda Chung Was "Robbed" Of Best Actress Award, Slam TVB For Giving It To Rosina Lam Instead

The TVB Anniversary Awards last night (Jan 2) was full of surprises.

The TVB Anniversary Awards was held last night (Jan 2), and with all award shows, it wasn’t without controversy.

While Yoyo Chen's non-reaction to her husband Vincent Wong’s Best Actor win dominated the conversation for 2020 Awards, this year was all about Linda Chung getting “robbed” of the Best Actress award.

Her touching speech however did little to quell the anger of netizens who felt that she had stolen the award from Linda.

Some netizens also speculated that Rosina's win was a “decision made by TVB’s executives”, rather than it being “the result of a fair fight with Linda”.

Rosina revealed in a backstage interview that she thought she had “no chance” of getting the award.

When asked if she thought that Linda would win, she evaded the question by saying: “Whoever wins the award is worthy. I was very happy when I saw Linda get the [Malaysia’s Favourite TVB Actress award] too.”

Linda, on the other hand, shared in her interview that she was “not disappointed at all”.

“I would have to keep working hard. Perhaps I didn’t win because I didn’t do well enough. Maybe I’ll get the chance [to get the Best Actress trophy] in a few years, or even 10 years down the road,” she quipped, adding that she doesn't know when her next drama would be.
