The TVB Anniversary Awards (Chinese: 萬千星輝頒獎典禮), officially known as the TV Awards Presentation of TVB, is an annual awards ceremony honoring TVB's programming achievements in Hong Kong television. Winners are awarded a copy of the golden TVB anniversary statuette, which depicts a man and a woman holding up TVB's square logo. It is regarded as the Hong Kong equivalent of the Emmy Awards.
The awards for Best Drama, Best Actor, and Best Actress in a TVB drama series were first presented in 1997 as the final act for the TVB Anniversary Gala, a star-studded event held every year on November 19, TVB's anniversary day. Several more award categories were introduced in the following years. In 2006, the event became a separate awards ceremony, and is given on the last month of the year. Carol Cheng has been hosting the awards ceremony since 2006.
Nominating and voting procedures have varied over the years. Winners are determined by a combination of results coming from a professional voting committee and the public.
All results are derived from live viewership in Hong Kong, based on Nielsen ratings.
