News : Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards
Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards will take place Saturday. With the Golden Horse Awards' 50th anniversary, Piaget planned a special "Golden Horse 50 Glorious Moment" photography event. Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Director nominees from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan participated. The photos would not only be in the event program but also on commemorative postcards for fans to collect in celebration of the Golden Horse's half a century history. On the day of the shoot, famous image designer Roger Cheng and photographer Liang Su took charge and created the men's "chok" and the women's beauty. The watch and diamond jewelry sponsorship made them look even better. Shu Qi's earrings and rings sparkled for the spotlight; the 19 year old new comer Cherry Ngan Cheuk Ling's light choreography displayed her nominated films THE WAY WE DANCE as she looked very lively and cute; "Double Ka Fai" Nick Cheung Ka Fai and Tony Leung Ka Fai "chok" out masculinity in suits, but they were still no longer for Johnnie To Kei Fung's match lighting dominance. To commemorate the film industry's outstanding work, Piaget and the Golden Horse Award set up a "Piaget Excellence of the Year Award" to further encourage Best Screenplay. From the Best Original Screenplay nominees, the most excellent work will be honored. This year they included ILO ILO, A TOUCH OF SIN, TO MY DEAR GRANNY, AMERICAN DREAMS IN CHINA and Hong Kong's DRUG WAR (DUK JIN). The event yesterday announced its second wheel of guest presenters. Maggie Cheung Man Yuk and Andy Lau Tak Wa will present Best Actress, Brigitte Lin (Lam Ching Ha) and Sean Lau Ching Wan will present Best Actor. the remaining guest presenters will include Peter Chan Ho Sun, Ann Hui On Wa, Carol Cheng Yui Ling, Vicki Zhao Wei, Chelsea Chan Chau Ha and others; Charlie Chin will personally present the Lifetime Achievement Award to his former film co-star Chen Chen.
