The Hong Kong Film Critic Society yesterday announced the 2010 Hong Kong Film Critic Society Award winners. With two nominated films Miriam Yeung Chin Wa with PERFECT WEDDING (PO PO CHIU GAI YUN) defeated Tang Wei and Kwai Lun-Mei to win her first Best Actress. Teddy Robin Kwan with GALLANTS (DA LUI TOI) defeated Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Simon Yam Tat Wa and Chapman To Man Jat to win Best Actor. GALLANTS also won Best Picture.

Yesterday the Hong Kong Film Critic Society announced its award winners. This year's results after eight hours of discussions and three rounds of voting were chosen. Yeung Chin Wa was nominated with LOVE IN A PUFF (JI MING YU CHUN GIU) and PERFECT WEDDING and finally won with PERFECT. Chin Wa as the city woman was full of rhythm and at the same time had her own style, thus she won. Chin Wa was very happy about winning Best Actress and felt that it was lucky. She said that before taking every role she never thought about winning. She only thought about playing the role well. This award truly was a very pleasant surprise.

Chin Wa said that everyone has only recognized her singer identity. This time recognized as an actress she truly was very excited. She hoped in the future more directors would give her the chance to try even more different characters. She definitely would work hard. Chin Wa also said that when she learned that she won the Best Actress, she suddenly remembered the title of Lau Ching Wan's film MY NAME IS FAME (NGOR YIU SING MING).

Best Actor went to GALLANTS' Teddy Robin Kwan, who won because his character was not mainstream. Yet in the second half of the story he had quite a presence. His body language and voice were full of a grand master style, as he successfully defeated LA COMEDIE HUMAINE (YUN GAN HEI KET)'s To Man Jat, STOOL PIGEON (SIN YUN)'s Cheung Ka Fai and ECHOES OF THE RAINBOW (SHUI YUET SUN TAU)'s Yam Tat Wa.

Lau Tak Wa's release GALLANTS also won Best Picture. Best Director went to REIGN OF ASSASSINS (GIM YU)'s Su Chao-Bin. Ivy Ho (Ong Sai) with CROSSING HENNESSY (YUET MOON HIN NEI SI) won Best Screenplay. In addition, this year's seven recommended films were REIGN OF ASSASSINS, STOOL PIGEON, BREAKING THE WILLOW (FUNG GUOON CHING SI), LA COMEDIE HUMAINE, LIKE DREAM (YU MUNG), LOVE IN A PUFF and CROSSING HENNESSY.
