The film A SIMPLE LIFE (TOH JEH) two nights ago was the big winner as it won five major awards including Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Screenplay, Best Director and Best Picture.  Two nights ago the film company after the award ceremony held a celebration with fellow five award winner FLYING SWORDS OF DRAGON GATE (LUNG MOON FEI GAP).  The fresh out of the oven Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor Andy Lau Tak Wa and Best Actress Deanie Ip Tak Han arrived together.  Sandra Ng Kwan Yu joked that at his age he was still able to get his wife pregnant, Wa Jai who was in a great mood did not mind but joked that he would have to punish Kwan Yu.

Wa Jai won his third Best Actor Hong Kong Film Award.  He was happy but he said when he watched drama, directors like Ann Hui On Wa held important positions in the film industry and he was very comforted.  Would Wa Jai celebrate even more?  He said that later he still will have to attend different film festivals so he might not have time.  Did he expect this film to bring him so many awards?  Wa Jai pointed out that Hui On Wa has always had certain guarantee, but he was the happiest about the box office record that 3D SEX AND ZEN (3D YUK PO TUEN) has held in Taiwan now A SIMPLE LIFE has broken.  Reporters pointed out that Sister Deanie might make A SIMPLE LIFE 38B, Wa Jai joked no wonder she had to thank Wong Jing.  "Wasn't it 33D?  She really is getting younger and younger!"

Has he called his wife with the good news?  Wa Jai said, "No.  (Because she is asleep?)  Haha, probably, it's too late."  Kwan Yu joked that at his age he could still get his wife pregnant.  Wa Jai said, "She talked too much, but I won't be mad at her.  I will take my time on punishing her.  I have to properly think about it, I am still enjoying this award and I am happy."  Would he share the award with his family?  Wa Jai pointed out that the award has already been placed with the fan club.

Sister Deanie with A SIMPLE LIFE won six Best Actress award.  She said that she had spinach and two slices of pizza to reward herself.  Did she no longer need to lose weight?  She said that she had high cholesterol, high blood sugar and diabetes, normally she paid a lot of attention to her health and could not relax.  Two nights ago she was already very relaxed.  This time winning with Wa Jai, Sister Deanie said
that it was an event.  Because she believed that she would not have another chance to step onto this stage again, and an award for the elderly was a rare opportunity so she was truly very grateful.  She said, "I am almost 'wrapping up', I can die now."

Sister Deanie revealed that she was in negotiation with Wong Jing but she stressed that she was cheap labor.  Even after winning the Best Actress she would not be at a Best Actress price, because the Best Actress award did not mean that the film would make money.  Hui On Wa was coming up with a new story.  Sister Deanie thought it was decent and she would like to work with her again.  For now she did not feel it was too tough, only that the production messed up her life habits.  Would she go on vacation as a reward?  Deanie said that she already booked a flight to Australia to watch the solar eclipse in November.

Hui On Wa said that she did not used to understand the meaning behind the award, as she always thought the box office was the most important.  Yet this time A SIMPLE LIFE performed so well at the box office, she realized the power of an award.  She admitted that she did not dare to imagine or expect anything before.  Now it truly is very satisfying.  In addition, the Tsui Hark directed FLYING SWORDS OF DRAGON GATE won five awards.  Tsui Hark praised his opponents as truly deserving because it was very hard to make a movie that was good in every aspect.
