香港流行文化的變與不變 — 由毛記電視分獎典禮說起
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?
