On 2nd January 2022, Ali Lee (李佳芯) bagged Most Popular Female Character (最受歡迎電視女角色) Award based on Beauty and the Boss (愛美麗狂想曲) drama in 2021 TVB Anniversary Awards (萬千星輝頒獎典禮2021). During her thank you speech, she expressed her previous winning was 3 years ago and thanked the staff and makeup artist for making her looking beautiful at the set. Ali also said: “It is not easy for the past 2 years and I believe it happens to everybody too. I need to thank myself as keep telling myself that everyday will be a better day. This is how I spend my days.”
However, some netizens criticised Ali for failing to be humble and gracious on TVB Weibo but many people recognised her acting skills in AI Romantic (智能愛人) and she deserved the award at the same time. They also felt it was a pity that Ali lost several opportunities for the past 3 years.
At night on 5th January, Ali thanked her supporters again and said: “Holding it is heavy and it represents everyone’s love for me. I will continue to feel grateful, contented and upgrade myself. Thank you for making me believing that I will gain more than what I lost.” Finally, Kay Tse (謝安琪), Snow Suen (孫慧雪), Katy Kung (龔嘉欣), Grace Wong (王君馨), Tony Hung (洪永城) and Yoyo Chen (陳自瑤) encouraged her to work harder.
