Due to rumors with Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Maggie Cheung Man Yuk and Carina Lau Ka Ling were supposedly at odds. Since then they rarely appeared in public together. This year Ka Ling was nominated for Best Actress with DETECTIVE DEE AND THE MYSTERY OF THE PHANTOM FLAME (TUNG TIN DAI GOK ji DIK YUN KIT). Although Man Yuk has not seen all of the nominated films, she still suported Ka Ling and said that she would win.
Two nights ago Cheung Man Yuk, Li Bingbing, Yan Ni, Fan Bingbing, and Chen Kun attended a certain international label promotion. Speaking of Jeff Lau Chun Wai's new film EAST MEETS WEST 2011 (DONG SING SAI JAU) was she interested as a star of the previous version to guest star? She said no, because it was a new version no old actors should be used. However she still looked forward to it, if it was just as funny as the previous film it would be rather good. Now when she matches that film she would feel it is great. As for her film plans, she said that for now nothing has been confirmed. She said that acting again would be possible as she did not have any retirement plan. However she has not had any suitable character. Was she too demanding? She denied that, only because she made too many films she did not want to repeat herself. Running into something fresh has been hard too.
With the annual Hong Kong Film Award on the way, who would she pick to win Best Actor and Best Actress? She at first said that because she has not seen all the nominated films she declined to make any prediction. Yet when reporters told her Lau Ka Ling was nominated, she immediately said, "Then I hope she wins. I can't think of who would win because I didn't see all the nominated films. As a friend though, she deserves to win."
