Hong Kong's leading television producer, TVB, will present the
highest honor among its anniversary awards to one of the locals'
most favored comedians, Lydia Shum.
Sixty-year-old Shum will be honored with the Lifetime
Achievement Award for her decade-long contribution to the show
business industry, according to a TVB announcement on Monday.
Recipients from previous years include Kwan Hoi-San, Lo Lan and
Shum has also been nominated for Best Television Presenter.
This year's TVB Anniversary Awards night is scheduled for Nov.
17, around the station's 40th anniversary.
It's unknown whether Shum will be there to accept the award. The
star has been visiting hospital frequently due to complications
from her bile duct operation last year.
Shum fainted at her home last week and was soon sent to a local
hospital. Details of her condition are not clear.
