The 10th China Changchun Film Festival award ceremony took place last night at the Changchun Five Ring Stadium. Nick Cheung Ka Fai with the film THE BEAST STALKER (JING YUN) won his seventh Best Actor, which also went to BODYUGUARDS AND ASSASSINS (SUP YUET WAI SING)'s Wang Xueqi. Wai Ying Hung with AT THE END OF DAYBREAK (SUM MOR) along with MULAN's Vicki Zhao Wei both won Best Actress. Best Chinese Picture went to FOUNDING OF A REPUBLIC, while Sandra Ng Kwan Yu with ECHOES OF THE RAINBOW (SHUI YUET SUN TAU) won Best Supporting Actress.
When Cheung Ka Fai accepted the award on stage, because of THE BEAST STALKER he received numerous Best Actor awards. This was his Best Actor in his motherland and made it even more meaningful. Ka Fai won Best Actors with THE BEAST STALKER at the Golden Horse award, Hong Kong Film Award, Asia Pacific Film Festival, Film Critic Society, Puchon
International Fantastic Film Festival, Chinese Film Award and last night's Changchun Film Festival.
The film AT THE END OF DAYBREAK has won Wai Ying Hung three Best Actress awards (Film Critic Society, Hong Kong Film Award, Changchun Film Festival) and two Best Supporting Actress awards. Yesterday Wai Ying Hung attended the award show in Changchun. The award was also her first Best Actress award in the Mainland.
Zhao Wei opened the award show as a guest performance and flew to the stage. She even won Best Actress with MULAN. Last night Zhao Wei thanked his "lover" for giving her a lot of love and dispelling rumors of marital issues.
Ng Kwan Yu was very happy that ECHOES OF THE RAINBOW received Mainland jury and audience recognition. This was also her first Mainland film award, which she thought was quite meaningful. Unfortunately she was unable to pick up the award in person. Later she hoped to be able to celebrate one more with the director, the producer, Brother Wa and their two on screen sons. Kwan Yu also denied that she personally confirmed her pregnancy in writing, insisting that it was her MR. AND MRS. INCREDIBLE character's experience.
