The 47th Taiwan Golden Horse Award tonight will take place in Taoyuan. Ethan Juan (Yuen Siu Tin) with MONGA received his first Best Actor nomination. Last night Siu Tin dressed up for the pre race party and appeared with Derek Tsang Kwok Cheung, Teddy Chan Tak Sum and
others. Facing strong competition, Siu Tin humbly said, "I am not nervous at all, tomorrow I will be relaxed as well. The nomination is already very good. Because I have never participated before, I just found out that the nomination had a certificate. It's like everyone gets a prize."
When asked whether he will walk the red carpet with his girlfriend Tiffany Hsu, he siad, "Tomorrow night my female companion will be my boss!"
Because both Wang Xueqi and Nicholas Tse Ting Fung were busy with work, only director Chan Tak Sum represented BODYGUARDS AND ASSASSINS (SUP YUET WAI SING) last night. He was very confident about Wang Xueqi's chances. "He made the entire film much more lively. Teacher Wang said that he would try to make time and come."
According to news from Taiwan, with 9 nominations BODYGUARDS AND ASSASSINS ran into two strong Taiwan films SEVEN DAYS IN HEAVEN and WHEN LOVE COMES and might not win Best Picture and Best Director. However lead actor Wang Xueqi and supporting actor Tse Ting Fung remained favorites. Best Supporting Actress would be between Zhang Jingchu and SEVEN DAYS IN HEAVEN's Cheung Si-Yin.
