WARRIORS OF THE RAINBOW: SEEDIQ BALE took home four Golden Horse Awards including Best Feature Film.  Director Wei Te-Sheng at the celebration laughed very happily; but he admitted that he was somewhat disappointed about not winning other awards.  As for Best New Actor, SEEDIQ had three nominees and all lost to Ko Chen-Tung.  Director Wei was asked whether he would be petty, he joked, "Today I can't bring swords so it's unfair."  He said that when the Best Feature Film was announced, at the time he wanted to give up, took the chance to run to the bathroom and escaped the awkwardness of defeat in the front of the camera.  Luckily he finally won the biggest award, which surprised him very much.

In addition, the Best Actor favorite, JUMP! ASHIN's Eddie Peng Yu-yen lost to Wa Jai.  When Doze Niu Chen-Zer and Lee Lieh presented the Best New Director Award they even said that he did not have much chance to win.  Peng Yu-Yen said that the director was only joking because they were close.  However, he admitted that he was somewhat disappointed because he gave a lot in JUMP!  Although this time he could not win, he was very happy to be nominated with other elders.

Ethan Juan (Yuen King Tin) two nights ago was a guest presenter along with Shu Qi.  Then he even attended the WU XIA celebration.  Big Brother Jimmy Wang Yu who lost despite a high vote count also attended and kept joking.  He said that he did not expect what he said on stage, "I had a stroke but no award" to become the show's slang.  He even said, "Actually I can be with or without the award, the most important is
presenting the award to Director Ting Shan-Hsi.  Being able to present the award to him I am truly the happiest."

When Siu Tin saw Big Brother Wang Yu he joyously embraced him.  Both were bald and immediately reporters noticed their collaboration.  Siu Tin joked, "Big Brother Wang is the chief commander of us GUILLOTINES (HUET DIK JI).  He is responsible for training and leading us."  Big Brother Wang Yu said that earlier he went to Xian to guest star for a few days in GUILLOTINES.  He saw how hard working young Best Actor Siu Tin was and praised him as a very rare actor.  Big Brother Wang Yu suddenly recalled he co-starred in Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Takeshi Kaneshiro (Gum Sing Mo) and Tang Wei in WU XIA and joked, "Why wasn't I nominated for Best Actor?  If I was nominated for Best Actor and I could duel with (Andy) Lau Tak Wa, I might have won too!"  Another guest presenter Simon Yam Tat Wa asked for a glass of water and began to "toast" the team.  Brother Wa who did not drink said, "This is my 98% white wine, I have to congratulate all the winners!"
