Raymond Lam picked up the Best performance by an Actor Award at the 2008 Asian Television Awards for his performance in The Master of Tai Chi. TVB hosted a party to celebrate Raymond's success and fellow co-stars, Myolie Wu and Selena Li were in attendance. TVB executives Virginia Lok and Tommy Leung were also present.
Raymond said that this award isn't a consolation for him after losing out on the Best Actor award to Ha Yu at this year's TVB Anniversary Awards. Raymond explained that The Master of Tai Chi was aired very much earlier in the year, thus it wasn't fresh in the minds of Hong Kong viewers, unlike his other series, Moonlight Resonance and The Four. Raymond expressed his gratitude to TVB for submitting The Master of Tai Chi as an entry as the series features Chinese culture and historical background. It is also worth noting that Raymond is the first Hong Kong artiste to ever win an Asian television Award.
Raymond felt that the local viewers find it harder to absorb the deep storyline of The Master of Tai Chi thus resulting in poor ratings but is glad that the series does well in the overseas market.Source: Raymond Lam Takes Asian TV Award - Batgwa
