'The 30th Hong Kong Film Festival Awards' award ceremony was held in the Jianshaju Cultural Center yesterday night. 'Detective D' has won the 'best director' and other five prizes, while the low-budget production 'Gallants' won four awards, including the big 'best movie' award.
This year's ceremony displayed many classic moments, with Zhi Weiyi standing on stage on talking about his bitter past as a Wushu (martial arts) substitute, making the honored guests in the crowd stand and applause. Li Xiaoping, who achieved the award for life achievements, has thanked her family for thirty years of support. Liu Jialing (Carina Lau), who was competing for the 'best leading female actress' award for the 6th time, finally won the award, and seemed thrilled on stage, with glistening teardrops flooding her eyes. She has thanked her mother and husband for the support they gave her.
When Xu Ke (Tsui Hark) won the 'best director award' through 'Detective D', he seemed happy on stage, indicating that this is the second prize he wins, many years after the first one. He thanked the working personnel in-front and behind the scenes, since working with him on the set is extremely difficult. Finally, he expressed many thanks to the support of Shi Nansheng, who supported him in difficult circumstances. Shi Nansheng, who sat in the audience, was touched deeply, with her eyes becoming moist when hearing those words, and the whole audience was applauding thunderously. When 'Gallants'won 'best movie' award, producer Lin Jiadong (Gordon Lam) said with excitement: "This film received the assistance of many people, because of them 'Gallants' could successfully come into being. No matter how the movie is doing in the box office, the essence of the movie is actually the spirit of Hong Kong people, the spirit of Hong Kong films!"
