The 32nd Hong Kong Film Award will take place on April 13 at the Cultural center. 28 Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best New Performer nominees posed for the program group photo.
Nominated for Best Actor with THE BULLET VANISHES (SIU SUT DIK JI DAN), Lau Ching Wan was placed in the most eye catching spot as he dominantly spread his leg next to COLD WAR (HONG JIN)'s Tony Leung Ka Fai and NIGHTFALL (DAI JUI BO)'s Nick Cheung Ka Fai; THE SILENT WAR (TING FUNG JEH)'s Tony Leung Chiu Wai gave an "exceptional chok look" as he sat in front, smiling and holding his head. VULGARIA (DAI JOOK HEI KET)'s Chapman To Man Jat stood in the second row, solid and steady.
Best Actress nominees ROMANCING IN THIN AIR (GO HOI BUT JI LUEN II)'s Sammi Cheng Sau Man, LOVE IN THE BUFF (CHUN GIU YU JI MING)'s Miriam Yeung Chin Wa, THE SILENT WAR and THE GREAT MAGICIAN (DAI MOR SHOOK SI)'s Zhou Xun, LOVE LIFTING (GO GUI OI)'s Elanne Kong Yeuk Lam were in the center. Sitting in the front row Sammi wore a sinple white dress that showed off her legs and shoulders, standing in the center Yeung Chin Wa also stole the spotlight with her shoulders. The event announced the Lifetime Achievement Award recipient to be director Ng See Yuen. His contribution to promote Hong Kong film could not be overlooked as Hong Kong film broke into the Mainland market with its endless potential. The Professional Spirit Award will go to two recipients, the veteran film printing master Ms. Lui Lai Wa and Mr. Ko Tin Chau.
Best Actress nominee Kong Yeuk Lam and Best Supporting Actress nominee DaDa Chan Jing yesterday attended the press conference. They agreed that they were busy looking for clothes and staying in shape for the award show. Kong Yeuk Lam has already dropped to 100 pounds, while DaDa remained at 115 pounds. Thus yesterday she dressed conservatively. She said, "I would go without a bra as requested. I hope to be thinner through exercise, even if my chest shrinks I wouldn't mind." Kong Yeuk Lam praised DaDa's great figure. She said, "For my first Best Actress nomination, I don't know whether I will have a next time. So I have to appear at my best."
