Thank you Sister Chun (Tsang Lai Chun)! I hope to learn as I work over the past 13 years, I have to thank all the writers, Ho Shun, people online. I have to thank one person. She was willing to yell at me, and she was willing to keep me company as I slept. Thank you Ms. (Kristal) Tin Yui Nei. Finally I have to thank one person, thank her for teaching me how to live. This award is for Mommy. Although you are no longer here, I know you are watching over me. I really miss you. I would remember what you taught me. I will keep working hard and play every character well. Thank you everyone." Best Series went to MY AGE APART, Michael Hui Koon Man presented the award.

Before taking the stage Chan Shan Chung even embraced his co-star Eileen Yiu and wept. Shan Chung got emotional as he cried and said, "I want to dedicate everyone's applause to the several Best Supporting Actor nominees. You are just as outstanding in my heart. I also thank the company for never giving up on me, for me to have a chance to live my life anew, and I want to thank two benefactors Tsang Lai Chun and Lok Yi Ling. At the same time I thank every producer who has worked with and trusted Chan Shan Chung." Shan Chung did not thanked his girlfriend but thanked his family and his friend who never gave up on him, Derek Kwok Ching Hung. He would keep working hard and hope to compete for Best Actor with Ruco Chan Chin Pang.

Ah Lim cut in and sad, "sitting." Ah Siu continued, "In 2008 during the financial storm, my life was as low as the stock market. Joining TVB changed me. Originally I was saving this for Best Actor, it didn't matter." Ah Lim joked, "You can forget it." The audience roared with laughter. The event invited Law Kar Ying, Tommy Tam (Ti Lung) and Johnson Lee to present an award. Brother Kar Ying and Ti Lung made quite a pair. When they said Best Partners, Brother Kar Ying said that male was Brother Lung and female of course was Liza Wong Ming Chuen.

Mayanne Mak was already shedding tears of joy before reaching the stage. She said as she cried, "It's very hard for a host to be the most improved. I have been in Hong Kong seven years this year, I have been looking for a sense of belonging. Thanks to the company for giving me a chance to perform. Someone asked me why my Chinese is so good? Because 20 years ago Grandpa kept me company everyday when I did my Chinese homework." Speaking of her keep wiping her nose on stage, she said, "At the time I had a lot of emotions, that was the real me. It doesn't matter if I was a little gross."
TVB presented the 50th Anniversary Award to Liza Wang Ming Chuen and Law Chung Bing. Wang Ming Chuen described TVB as the Shaolin Temple, giving artists chances to perform. She represented artists who have worked for the company in the past 50 years in thanking the company for the recognition that this award represented and hoped that the company would cherish each and every artist. She said, "Like add a little more to the salary, a little more to breaks, a little care, a little less partisanship.
