The 50th Golden Horse Award takes place tonight. The Best Actor is fierce. Hong Kong representatives THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI)'s Tony Leung Chiu Wai and "double Ka Fai" COLD WAR (HONG JIN)'s Tony Leung Ka Fai and UNBEATABLE (GIK JIK)'s Nick Cheung Ka Fai take the battlefield again Taiwan STRAY DOGS' Lee Kang-Cheng and SOUL's Jimmy Wang Yu. Although before the race Wai Jai is the favorite, this year is Golden Horse 50. Some said that the Best Actor award might go to either Lee Kang-Cheng and Wang Yu. However before the moment the award is presented, everything is still up in the air. As for Best Actress, THE GRANDMASTERS' Zhang Ziyi is the favorite and can likely beat Shu Qi and Sammi Cheng Sau Man.

Nominated and presenting guests continue to arrive in Taiwan. Zhang Ziyi, Jackie Chan, Sean Lau Ching Wan, Shu Qi, Brigitte Lin (Lam Ching Ha), John Woo (Ng Yu Sum), and others have landed in Taiwan. Jackie Chan yesterday happily said that the Golden Horse has been around for 50 years and almost grew up with him. It was not a simple feat. He also said that the Best Actor nominees were all his friends and he would be happy no matter who wins. Zhang Ziyi smiled and greeted fans at the airport, but she was unwilling to make any prediction. Lau Ching Wan is a presenter. He admitted that awards should not be presented to friends, but the best one that the jury has chosen.

When Ng Yu Sum arrived in Taiwan, the wounds all over his face scared everyone. His right eye was bruised and his forehead was bandaged. He also had a wound on the bridge of his nose. He explained that during the shoot he accidentally tripped on electrical cables, but he was fine.
