The 14th Chinese Film Media Award took place in Beijing yesterday. Zhang Ziyi with THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) won her 12 Best Actress awards. She felt that the number 12 was particularly meaningful to the Chinese. "This award to me is an end as well as a new beginning!" Zhang Ziyi also wrote online, "Without Director Wong Kar Wai, Mr. (Tony) Leung Chiu Wai, without hundreds of millions of viewers and fans, I wouldn't have these 12 heavy awards."
Hong Kong actors Nick Cheung Ka Fai with the film UNBEATABLE (GIK JIN) won his third Best Actor ward. He said that he felt that it was worth the hard training during the shoot and felt comforted. Hong Kong director Johnnie To Kei Fung through the film DRUG WAR won Best Director and Best Picture; Best New Actor went to Taiwan artist Kuo Shu-Yau for the film STEP BACK TO GLORY.
