On Golden Horse's 50th year, the event invited its past 50 Best Actors and Best Actresses to attend. The most eye catching had to be former lovers Brigitte Lin (Lam Ching Ha) and Charlie Chin (Chun Cheung Lam), rumored couple Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Maggie Cheung Man Yuk. Thus the cameras often fell on them; however, they did not appear to be awkward. Ching Ha smiled brilliantly. Wai Jai who sat between his wife Carina Lau Ka Ling and THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) co-star Zhang Ziyi also appeared relaxed, with less seriousness and more smile. This year's Golden Horse ambassador Cheung Man Yuk and Andy Lau Tak Wa sat shoulder to shoulder and chatted intensely.
Known as the Little Naughty, former Taiwan star Chen Chen last night received the Lifetime Achievement Awards. Originally the event intended for the film industry's Double Chin Double Lin (Charlie Chin, Chin Han, Brigitte Lin, Joan Lin) to present the award together, but in the end only Chun Cheung Lam was on the stage. His former girlfriend Lam Ching Ha was in the audience. When Chun Cheung Lam spoke on stage, Ching Ha very graciously maintained her smile and listened in the audience.
When Chen Chen accepted the award, everyone gave a standing ovation. She said, "On the 50th year of the Golden Horse Award to able to receive this award, I am truly honored and touched. I also felt somewhat less than qualified. I have to thank everyone for their love for me. I see this award as my greatest glory and encouragement in my life. I too have been working in film for 50 years, from a young girl to a old lady. This natural order can't be changed, but as long as the stage remains, new people will continue to spread the film spirit." Then she said that she had to give this award to the behind the scene workers. She also thanked her family, son and friends like Lam Ching Ha for their care while she was ill. She had no regret in life after receiving this award.
