The #1 Annual "Glaze-Over of TVB" Awards - The Nominations!
What is the Annual "Glaze-Over of TVB" Awards, and why should I vote?
The Annual "Glaze-Over of TVB" Awards is this blog's version of the TVB Anniversary Awards. It has all the same categories as the TVB Anniversary Awards, plus an added number of equally deserving nominees. Here, we break all the TVB rules - not only do we have the usual categories, but we have fun, just-for-laughs categories as well. Where else are you going to find a "Most Annoying Character" Award?
Furthermore, these awards take into account all the series that viewers have seen through the year, be it on TV or from the Internet. Yes, this means that series that have been released "overseas" are eligible as well!
Every year, fans are allowed to vote for the TVB Anniversary Awards, but the final result is "decided" upon by TVB. The Annual "Glaze-Over of TVB" Awards are your chance to have your say as the final results as based solely on your votes and nothing else.
How do I vote?
Easy! Simply look over the list of nominations below for the various categories, and choose your favourites. Then, open up your email, copy and paste the below categories into the email and fill in your favourites! Be sure to specify the series the person you're voting for was in because some of them are nominated for multiple series. Send the email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and leave the rest to me. In the meantime, feel free to tell all your friends to vote! Yes, it's that easy.

How many times can I vote?
You should only send in one e-mail with all your votes in it, but in each category, you can vote for more than one person. The maximum number of votes you may cast in one category are denoted above.
You didn't nominate one of my favourites. Can I still vote for him/her?
A Glaze-Over of TVB did not watch all of the series above, and hence, cannot make an objective judgement on who should be best nominated from those series it did not watch. However, after initial research done and opinions by other fellow fans, it has tried to come up with the best list of nominees for the major categories, i.e. Best Actor/Actress, Supporting and Most Improved categories.
In fact, there are four categories with no nominees, and this is where you come in with your opinions and choices!
If you still really feel like a deserving actor/actress has been left out, these awards are flexible. Do let me know who I have left out, and why you feel like he/she deserves a nomination and he/she just might be added to the nominations. There also will be some categories where you are encouraged to nominate your own favourites; this will be stated under the category explanations below.
Can I only vote in some categories?
The answer is, yes, of course! As said before, these awards are flexible and you can vote for only the categories you wish and just simply leaving the other fields blank.
How long do I have to vote?
Of course, it would be best if you could submit your vote as soon as possible so that A Glaze-Over of TVB could start on the tabulation early. However, voting closes on the 17th of November, 2007. All votes received after then are void. The results will tentatively be released a week later, on the 24th of November, 2007.
Who are the nominees?
The Best Actor/Actress Award - The name says it all. Cast your votes for the man & woman whom you think did the best job in a leading role.
The Best Supporting Actor/Actress Awards - Often overlooked by many for the success of the series, it is the time to give these talented actors and actress in a supporting role some love.
The Most Improved Actor/Actress Awards (left out earlier; thanks Shirley for pointing it out) - The guy and the girl who has caught your eye for improving the most throughout the previous year - who will it be?
My Favourite Male/Female Character Awards (also left out earlier, thanks to Shirley once again for noticing it!): Every year there are some characters that catch your eye. It may be the way the character was written, or the way the character was fleshed out by the actor/actress themselves that make them your favourites. But, they make you laugh and cry with them; hope and have faith with them; root for them because there's just that special something about them.
If you have already voted but left out these four categories because of my blur-ness, feel free to send me another email with your votes for these categories! :)
Best Romantic/Non-Romantic Partnership Awards: A Glaze-Over of TVB brings back the 'crowd favourite award' that has been abolished by TVB. Vote for the partnerships you feel bring the most sizzle and chemistry to your screen, so much that you actually believed it was real.
Best Father/Mother Figure Award: Ah, parental figures. Where would we be without them? Vote for your favourite TVB fathers and mothers in this category. Not only are actual mothers and fathers nominated, but brothers and sisters who assume parental roles are nominated too!
The Best Villain Award: These are the people who make evil and conniving look so delicious. They are convincing, they do hell of a good job, and you have to admit, the series wouldn't have been such a gripping watch, if not for their presence.
(My apologies - Kwok Fung should have been nominated for Dicey Business, and not Heart of Greed, as it says in the list above. Forgive the typo.)
Most Annoying Character Award: How many times have you watched a TVB series and felt like reaching through your screen to award a character a slap simply just because he/she was so annoying?
The Most Atrocious Hairstyle Award: Everybody's a director when it comes to TVB, and certainly, everyone's a stylist when it comes to TVB. How many times have you watched a series, and think to youself, "Gosh, I would have done things differently!" Pick out the hairstyle you have wanted to change the most for these characters.
(Note: Power Chan is nominated for his incredibly awful wig in the early stages of DOL.)
My Favourite Cameo Appearance Award: Some actors and actresses appear for only a few episodes in a series to make a cameo. There were plenty throughout the year, but which ones brightened up the series and were your favourites? Feel free to nominate your own favourite cameos for this category.
The 'Ick Factor' Award: The name says it all, vote for the moment you felt make your stomach squirm the most. Feel free to nominate other moments you felt disgusted by in this category.
Additional nomination for The 'Ick' Factor - Chan Hung Lit trying to seduce Kam Yin Ling by reliving the old file (Best Selling Secrets) - thanks cF!
The Best Kiss Award: Nominate your favourite kisses for this award. It could be a simple peck on the cheek from son to father, a sweet smooch in a romantic setting or an intense kiss filled with passion. TVB has become more generous with their kissing scenes these days, so there's a huge pool for you to take your pick from!
The "I-Wanted-More-of-Them" Award: Time and time again you watch a series and wished that there would be more scenes of a certain someone, or a certain partnership. These people don't have large enough roles to be considered supporting, but yet, the series wouldn't feel the same without them because they steal almost every scene they are in.
The Best Ending Award: TVB is infamous for having perfectly fine series end on a stupid, contrived note. This award is for you to honour the best ending in a TVB series. It could a happy ending, an ending where the villains got their 'just desserts' or even a bittersweet ending, if that floats your boat. It's entirely up to you!
The My Favourite Ensemble Award: Many a time would you decide to watch a series only because you like one of the actors/actresses in it and nobody else. This here is a chance for you to vote for your favourite ensemble in a series. Which group of actors and actresses from a series collectively made it on your favourite list? (Note: You are voting for a series cast as a whole e.g. the entire Heart of Greed cast, Best Selling Secrets cast, etc.)
My Favourite Sing-Along Theme Song Award: I'm pretty sure this one needs no introduction. The themes are such a big part of the series that every time you hear it, you just immediately think of the series. Vote for your favourites!
The Best Series Award: Simple - which one was your favourite of the year?
