CHO LAM WINS ROTTEN FILM KING
FAVORITE JC SWALLOWS GOLDEN PLUM
The Hong Kong Film Awards will take place tomorrow night. As everyone is discussing whether Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin will be able to defeat Vicki Zhao Wei for the glory of Hong Kong, the time has come for Apple Daily Entertainment Page's 10th Annual Golden Plum Film Poll to reveal its results. In the four major categories, the Most Rotten Actor was the fiercest. Wong Cho Lam finally with DELETE MY LOVE (DELETE OI YUN) defeated ENTHRALLED (OI. CHUM. Mai)'s Kelvin Kwan Chor Yiu and won his first Golden Plum; Jessica C. with ZOMBIE FIGHT CLUB won the Golden Plum Actress without any suspense. - SO FUN NEI
Undoubtedly, Golden Plum has already become a film industry index. Seemingly Kate Tsui Tsz Shan who won last year the Golden Plum actress with her neither laughing nor crying expression in I LOVE HONG KONG 2013 (2013 NGOR OI HK GUNG HEI FAT CHOI) has not released another film before improving her acting. Three time Most Rotten Actor William Chan Wai Ting finally evaluated his bitter experience. He not only went north to make crazy RMB but also had a breakthrough performance in last year's GOLDEN BROTHER (NAM YUN NG HOR YI GUNG). Finally he quit his addiction to the Golden Plum. Even so, some filmmakers still continuously challenge the bottom line of the audience's patience and extend the longevity of the Golden Plum Awards that aim to sweep away rotten films.
Few Votes Less For Kwan Chor Yiu
After almost a month of voting and 4,088 voters, the dust has settled on the results. In the four categories, the competition was the fiercest in the Most Rotten Actor. Because this year the Golden Plum frequent guest Chan Wai Ting is absent, all five nominees have a chance. Before the race Donnie Yen Chi Tan can overwhelmingly win with his acting in THE ICEMAN 3D (3D BING FUNG HUP: CHUNG SUN ji MOON). Who knew that there was no most rotten only even more rotten. Readers in general still felt that DELETE MY LOVE's Wong Cho Lam and ENTHRALLED's Kwan Chor Yiu were "poorer". They could sing EXAGGERATED for the occasion.
The Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor was the battle between the domestic Ah Sa and the Mainland's Zhao Wei, the Golden Plum Actress added the U.S.' Jessica C. Jessica C. was no longer considered a film industry rookie. Back then her BEACH SPIKE (YIT LONG KAU OI JIN) has already "shocked and awed". Several years later she again starred in ZOMBIE FIGHT CLUB. Her route eye widening expression brought fear to the hearts of many. When she escaped she still tossed out her alarm bell chest, which left people amazed. Finally she crushing won with 43%. Despite the Golden Plum Jessica still did not feel sour. Through this film she found her true love Andy Tien (On Chi Kit). Unfortunately her boyfriend was unable to win with the film and share the moment with her.
FLIRTING Wons The Most Rotten Film
Amin Cheung Man with FLIRTING IN THE AIR (TONG BAK FU CHUNG SEUNG WON SIU) defeated Joe Chien's ZOMBIE FIGHT CLUB and Patrick Kong (Yip Lim Sum)'s DELETE MY LOVE for the Most Rotten Film/Director. FLIRTING basically had no story to speak of, its main plot only copied Sing Yeh's old film except that the comedy material was all lost. Despite Chapman To Man Chak and DaDa Chen Jing's efforts, the film still could not escape its fate as a rotten film.
In addition, although Regina Ip Lau Suk Yee once boldly said that her film TEMPORARY FAMILY (SUT LUEN GUP YEUNG) made hundreds of millions at the Mainland box office, but its hair on the wall scene had many people shaking their heads until they exploded. In the end with 27% it won the Most Rotten Scene.
