眾所周知,香港流行文化曾經輝煌,卻已今非昔比。曾經的明星陸續殞落,過去的大台漸被嫌棄。迎面而來的,是一個強調網絡、分眾的新流行年代。 月前毛記電視分獎典禮大受歡迎,全城哄動,正是新時代的標誌。當下香港流行文化的世界究竟是怎樣?相較舊秩序,它變的是什麼?不變乃至永恆的,又是什麼?

Changes & Constants of Hong Kong Popular Culture and the TV Most Award Show

It is common knowledge that the once splendid Hong Kong popular culture has passed its peak. Former stars are diminishing and old canons of television production ridiculed. What lies ahead is a new era of popular culture that values digital networks and segmented audienceship. The alternative award show “TV Most First Guy Ten Big Ging Cook Gum Cook Awards Distribution” organised by the creative studio TV Most earlier this year was a tremendous hit across town, and could very well be the symbol of this new age. How exactly could we conceive local popular culture right here, right now? What has evolved from the old order? What are the unchanged and the constants?
