Though Charmaine Sheh won Best Actress in Mingpao poll, she lost to Tavia Yeung in TVB's one vote per person voting. Charmaine's fans pointed out in weibo that if TVB refused to reveal the votes amount, then they should not use the title of 'people's choice' and indicate that Charmaine doesn't need their award to validate her acting.
