The other Best Actor nominees included TWO THUMBS UP (CHUNG FUNG CHEH)'s Francis Ng Chun Yu and THE KID FROM THE BIG APPLE's Ti Lung.
Best Actress nominee for HAPPINESS (HUNG WON SI NGOR), Kara Wai Ying Hung could not hide her emotions. "It's very hard to describe how I feel, I want to thank the Macau International Film Festival. At the same time I want to thank a jury of professionals who recognize me." Irene Wan Bik Ha's LOVE IN LATE AUTUMN (OI JOI SUM CHAU) also brought her a Best Actress nomination. Being the film's producer and investor as well, she said after receiving the good news, "I am very happy to hear the news.

"The nomination to me is already a huge encouragement, giving a shot of confidence to my film future."
