The 31st Hong Kong Film Award will take place tomorrow night. Yesterday a worship ceremony was held. The masters of ceremony of the evening Eric Tsang Chi Wai, Tsang Bo Yee, Ronald Cheng Chung Kei, Gordon Lam Ka Tung and Angelababy all attended.
Chi Wai and daughter Bo Yi team up again. Will he still poke fun at baby's rumors? He said that baby got lucky because Bo Yi was around. Chi Wai pointed out that the award show will still focus on movies, but he might improvise depending on the live situation. Has Chi Wai helped this year with guest persuasion? He said that he only asked his daughter to help, but he said that this year's award ceremony broke records as many guests agreed right away. It was the year with the earlier guest confirmations. Did he feel that with the recent Hong Kong film rise everyone came in support? Chi Wai said, "I don't know, maybe lately Hong Kong film performed pretty well that everyone wanted to support it." Today is Chi Wai's birthday. Chi Wai said that tomorrow will be the Hong Kong Film Award so this year he will not make a big deal. He said that in the past he would attend several parties but this year he will not. Bo Yi said that Papa this year's birthday party will start earlier, so he would get drunk earlier and go home earlier.
Cheng Chung Kei in recent months has been working in the Mainland and rarely appeared in Hong Kong. He said that recently he finally returned to Hong Kong. Later he will work on Raymond Wong Pak Ming and Donnie Yen Chi Tan's new film. He said that earlier when he worked abroad he missed his daughter's growth. He said that his daughter lately loved to chase the dog in her walker as he saw the dog's plead for help in its eyes. He said, "My daughter learned something new while I wasn't around, but earlier I saw her stand up." Would he regret going to work? Cheng Chung Kei said that he could not do anything about that and asked his family to record his daughter's life. As for parenthood plans, he admitted that he thought about it, mainly sometimes when he saw his daughter alone he thought she was very bored."
In addition this year's Hong Kong guest presenters will be numerous, including Ko Chen-Tung, Michelle Chen, Gao Yuanyuan, Tony Leung Ka Fai, Andy Lau Tak Wa, Anthony Wong Chau Sun, Mini Yang Mi, Sammo Hung Kam Bo, Sandra Ng Kwan Yu, Shawn Yue Man Lok, Shu Qi and Julian Cheung Chi Lam. Deanie Ip Tak Han will be a guest performer as well.
Angelababy will be the Hong Kong Film Award master of ceremony for the first time and will even team up with Eric Tsang Chi Wai and Ronald Cheng Chung Kei. Baby said that she was a little scared but was willing to be at the mercy of Chi Wai. Was she afraid that Chi Wai would poke fun at her love life? Baby said that She would not mind as long as everyone had fun, but she was afraid that she would not be able to keep up. Did she feel she had a quick wit? Baby said, "A little! Actually mainly I want to do my part."
Recently Baby and Ko Chen-Tung became familiar after working together. Earlier she took Ko Chen-Tung to her restaurant. Baby said that he was like a little brother to her because he resembled her little brother very much. Did Ko Chen-Tung pursue her? She immediately said, "No, his rumor isn't with me." Speaking of Ko Chen-Tung's rumor with Elva Hsiao, Baby did not ask him about it but admitted that she really wanted to know. She joked that she was quite a gossip. Did she feel Ko Chen-Tung and Elva Hsiao make a good pair? She joked, "More so than with me."
Recently Huang Xiaoming had a breakthrough performance in LOVE IN THE BUFF. His relationship with Brenda in the film was also a bright spot. How did Baby feel about Brenda? She said that she was pretty good. Did she feel threatened by Brenda? Baby said, "The threat is pretty big, she is so famous now that I am no match for her." She said that the scene actually was pretty funny. Did she praise Xiaoming for his performance? She awkwardly said that she would say no more and thought that it was entertaining.
