Miriam Yeung Chin Wa, Jordan Chan Siu Chun and Gordon Lam Ka Tung will be this year's Hong Kong Film award masters of ceremonies. Yesterday the trio attended the worship ceremony at the Cultural center. Attendees included the Hong Kong Film Award chair Gordon Chan Ka Seung. Everyone prayed for a smooth show. First time Hong Kong Film award hosts Chin Wa and Siu Chun even warned that they might cross some people and hoped the elders would not mind.
Siu Chun and Chin Wa would host for the first time, while Ka Tung would be on the job for his fourth year. Chin Wa earlier said that because she caught something from her son, her voice was still a little hoarse. She said that during rehearsal two days ago her voice was a disaster. She could not speak at all. Now she is already much better. She admitted that she has told the event, after having her baby she did not have much of a memory. She might be able to only remember 30% of the script, but the event said that Ka Tung would remember it. Siu Chun also said that earlier he thought about whether he should accept the mission because he was not a great talker and he was afraid that he would run out of gas. Reporters asked that Siu Chun stuttered when he spoke, was that the greatest pressure? He said, "I can have my own style!" Was he also afraid that the program would run over? He said, "Over or not won't be my problem, I would try to stutter little."
Chin Wa admitted that she was more afraid of hosting than being nominated. She said, "Instead I wouldn't be afraid of a nomination, because fate would already be set. Yet being on the stage out of the blue I really wouldn't know what to say." Chin Wa was also afraid that some guests would not be understanding and the audience had so many elders, for example her boss would be there. However, Siu Chun said that most of the Hong Kong film industry colleagues would be understanding. Chin Wa joked that she had to set a baseline first as she might cross some people then. She said, "Kids don't know any better, please pay no mind to us."
Siu Chun and Chin Wa both had sons, would they watch in the audience or on television at home? Chin Wa said that she would not bring her son to the venue, which would distract her from work. Siu Chun said that with his son on hand he would not be as nervous. He would even play with his son. However he said that his son was only a little over one, right now he only watched the cartoon channel. Cherrie In Choi Yi was rumored to be pregnant again. Was Siu Chun about to be a father again? He said, "None of your business, if so I would be the first to inform you."
In addition, the event yesterday announced the guest presenters. They included Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Ethan Juan (Yuen King Tin), Shu Qi, Eddie Peng Yu-Yan, Ivy Chan Yuk Ling, Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai), Sammi Cheng Sau Man, Nick Cheung Ka Fai and others. Ivana Wong Yuen Chi, Anthony Wong Yiu Ming and others will be guest performers. The award show will also salute James Wong Jim in a segment.
