The 29th Annual Hong Kong Film Award took place at the Cultural Center last night. The event around 5:30PM began its red carpet ceremony, which was glittering with stars who attracted not only reporters from all over to cover the event but also many fans and onlookers.
Eric Tsang Chi Wai walked the red carpet with a balloon with his image. Was he advertising for SUPER TRIO on ATV? He said that he was not as the balloon was from Cable. Did he inform TVB about appearing on ATV? He said, "I informed them over 20 years ago! TVB knows I am attending a film professional because I have several identities, like the Performing Artist Guild vice chair and the Hong Kong Film Award Association member."
Last night female artists dressed up for the occasion with valuable jewelry, among them Michelle Ye (Yip Shuen), Shu Qi and Sandra Ng Kwan Yu's jewelry were worth over 10 million. Kwan Yu although has been on a hellish weight loss program for three days and only had vegetable and egg white, she still had a little belly. Was she pregnant? She joked that she would like to be. Ailing just like Kwan Yu, Kara Hui (Wai Ying Hung) said that she was no longer nervous. Gigi Leung Wing Kei's pink evening wear freshly arrived from Germany while the jewelry was her own. Her bracelet, diamond earrings and ring cost over 300,000, all of which she bought to reward herself after hard work. Since she was in red, was she hinting at a wedding? She said, "No, wedding is white!" Marsha Yuan Ji Wai's low cut evening wear was a gift from an U.S. designer.
Miriam Yeung Chin Wa and Shawn Yue Man Lok was presenting the Best Supporting Actress award so they walked the red carpet together. Chin Wa joked that she was stilt walking because she wore six inch high heels with 3 million in diamond jewelry. Ah Lok joked that Chin Wa was taller than him and made him very unhappy. He also said that he promised one of the nominees Denise Ho Wan Si, whether she wins or not he had to call her name. Lynn Xiong (Hung Doi Lam)'s black tube dress was flown in from France, but it was not as sexy as last year's. Her rumored boyfriend Aaron Kwok Fu Sing was competing for the Best Actor, who was her favorite to win? She said everyone was good, but the reporters made her pick one. She coyly said "Yeah" then turned around and left. Sing Sing appeared in Japan's most elegant formal wear and expressed that he has not seen Hung Doi Lam. He only knew that she would attend. A magazine claimed that he did not visit the ailing Hung Doi Lam. He immediately said the magazine was not credible and honestly said that he already sent his regards on his microblog. Fala Chen appeared in a see through number with jewelry that was worth 206,000. Did her boyfriend come in support? She expressed that she did not know but he had a ticket. Nick Cheung Ka Fai arrived with his manager. An observer this year, he honestly said that he was very relaxed.
The fiery Nicholas Tse Ting Fung that night won Best Dressed with Denise Ho Wan Si. Ting Fung was asked whether he chose red for luck? He expressed that his company chose the fashion and revealed that his wife Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi was watching at home to support him. His son was with his mother Deborah Li. Will he continue to thank his wife after winning? He said, "I should thank my wife because I am hardly ever home. I am only home a few times a month, like this time when I saw my son he grew taller again and looked different." Today Ting Fung had to leave home for work again, but his wife is expectant in three weeks. Then he will take three weeks off to keep her company. As for a baby name, he still has not thought of one yet. Ho Wan Si rarely appeared in a very revealing evening wear, the result of which was decent. Reporters asked her to dress more like this from now on. She said, "I have to practice for an entire month to dress once like this! (Did you show bottom because you don't have much on top to show?) Huh? The top is already my extreme limit!" She also said that this time she justifiably walked the red carpet, even Wyman Wong Wai Man said if she did not dress up this time when would she? If she dressed like this for a music award show she might be mistaken for being possessed!
Ethan Ruan (Yuen King Tin) and Mark Chao (Chiu Yau Ting) were presenters. They were very excited to attend their first Hong Kong Film Awards. Will Siu Tin introduce himself to directors? He joked that he already printed my business cards. Irene Wan Bik Wan wore jewelry from her husband. Other stars had jewelry sponsorship, but only she had one from her husband. How lucky was her. She explained that the sponsors were very exaggerated. She liked simpler styles. Rain Li Choi Wa's seven figure diamond jewelry was on loan from former boss lady Chiu Shuet Ying, but she was even more nervous about losing it. Simon Yam Tat Wa and his wife Qi Qi walked the red carpet together. Brother Wa revealed that his wife gave him a honey bee pendent, which he praised was a very thoughtful gift as it meant both sweet and hard working. His daughter had to go to school in the morning so they did not bring her along. Brother Wa even stated that he was a responsible father and would not keep his daughter awake because he was nominated for an award.
