Zhang Ziyi walked backwards on the red carpet
Christy Chung Lai Tai's less than fluent Putonghua left even co-star Tony Leung Ka Fai's mouth open when the mother of three daughters said she wanted "four sons". What she meant was "moderation".
Jaycee Chan (Fong Cho Ming) did not notify his parents about his Best Supporting Actor nomination because they were both Best Actor and Best Actress winners.

The 19th Golden Rooster Hundred Flower Film Festival award ceremony took place last night in Jiangyin, Jiangsu. Chen Ku with PAINTED SKIN (WAT PEI) and Vicki Zhao Wei with MULAN won Best Actor and Best Actress. Chen Kun edged out Zhang Guoli with just one vote. Zhao Wei broke down when she gave her speech. Both before the race already became the foci at the nomination certificate presentation. Zhao Wei stated that MULAN was her favorite film, whether she won or not she would continue to do her part.
As for Alec Su (So Yau Peng) he won the Best Supporting Actor award with his effeminate character in THE MESSAGE. On stage he tearfully gave thanks. "When I first started I was typecast as an idol, thus winning an award was not easy at all!" Best Supporting Actress went to FOUNDING OF A REPUBLIC's Mainland actress Xu Qing and JING TIAN DONG DI's Wang Jia, defeating pre race favorite Sun Li. Best New Actor went to JING TIAN DONG DI's Mainland actor Xu Jian.
The red carpet before the event was star studded, with three time Best Actress Liu Xiaoqing, Zhang Ziyi, Shu Qi, Anita Yuen Wing with Simon Yam Tat Wa, Tony Leung Ka Fai with Jennifer Tse Ting Ting and Christy Chung Lai Tai, Maggie Siu Mei Kei, Ella Koon Yun Na and others. Winning Best Actor with THE ROAD HOME in the past, Zhang Ziyi stole the show when she appeared on the red carpet in the opposite direction. However perhaps
due to her dress being too long she nearly tripped and fell. That night she even performed the song I ONLY CARE ABOUT YOU (I JI JOI FU NEI).
Attending her first international film festival, Siu Mei Kei said that she was very happy. Was she confident about winning an award? She lightly joked that she was not "desperate" and only wanted more job opportunities. Yam Tat Wa's ECHOES OF THE RAINBOW (SHUI YUET SUN TAU) has been selected to represent Hong Kong at the Oscars. He happily said, "That's why I said I would never completely give up on Hong Kong film. This is the reason. This is a movie with historical culture, it can easily touch the jury!" Already immigrated to the Mainland, Chung Lai Tai said that she has always loved Hong Kong. Thus every two or three months she would return once. She would like to work with Johnnie To Kei Fung and Ann Hui On Wa, but no longer wanted to give any sexy performance. She would like to be able to work on romantic action film because it would be fresher for her.
