The 47 year old director Leon Dai and his Best Actress girlfriend Kwai Lun-Mei have been dating for eight years. Earlier at the film production start he talked about his girlfriend and lovingly said that he did not want to give her just one movie but a lifetime. He seemingly hinted at they will be together for the rest of their lives; he even wished that she would win this year's Golden Horse Best Actress award.
The 50th Golden Horse Award will take place Saturday in Taipei and will be the grandest event in Taiwan this year. Best Actors, Best Actresses, Directors and others of the past 49 years will try to make time to attend. The guest presenter list also continues to grow. Kwai Lun-Mei, Zhang Ziyi, Joan Chen, Yang Kuei-Mei and Sammi Cheng Sau Man will present Best Director. Before announcing the winner they will salute the Best Director nominees whom they have worked with, including Wong Kar Wai, Johnnie To Kei Fung, Jia Zhangke, Tsai Ming-Liang and Chung Mong-Hong. Aaron Kwok Fu Sing and Sylvia Chang (Cheung Ngai Ga) will present Best Supporting Actress. Shu Qi and Leon Dai will present Best Supporting Actor; winning the Golden Horse Award for A BETTER TOMORROW (YING HUNG BOON SIK), John Woo (Ng Yu Sum) and Ti Lung will reunite to present Best New Director.
Jury chair Director Ang Lee has an important task as well as he and the rest of the jury are watching movies for ten days. Yet Ang Lee has learned to reduce stress with rope jumping. Yesterday Taiwan talk show host Kevin Tsai posted a photo of Ang Lee jumping rope indoors, but because the rope was too long Ang Lee could only jump his arms extended.
