Anthony Wong Chau Sun and Hins Cheung King Hin last night were guest presenters at the 2014 Hong Kong Art Development Award. Director Dante Lam Chiu Yin received the film industry's artist of the year, which led to objections. Chau Sun said, "I don't think it's any dispute, his score is very high. (Are you worried that lacking acceptance?) Do you lose acceptance just because a few people disagree? It's very overbearing to want everyone's acceptance. Lam Chiu Yin isn't bad." Chau Sun admitted that the entire matter has become very awkward. He apologized on behalf of the drama side.

Director Gordon Chan Ka Seung presented the award to Lam Chiu Yin. He claimed to be Lam Chiu Yin's mentor and that Tsui Hark was his mentor. Chan Ka Seung said to Tsui Hark, "I am not better than you in anything, but my disciple is better than your disciple." Lam Chiu Yin said that he attended out of respect for the event and art. He also thanked his mentor Chan Ka Seung for giving him a lot of opportunities to practice. "As an assistant director I hoped a director would give me a chance, I never thought that I would have it so quickly. Although the pressure was huge, it was able to very quickly make me grow. This honor belongs to the team."

_25MF007_.jpgHong Kong Film Award chair Gordon Chan made clarification after criticism of the show and apologize to Candy Cheung_25MF008_.jpgCandy Cheung
The 34th Hong Kong Film Award has already taken place but the hosts and guests' comments left aftermath. Host Gordon Lam Ka Tung's disrespect of guests and Jordan Chan Siu Chun's lack of professionalism were criticized as very discourteous. Chan Siu Chun first admitted that he did not prepare enough. Lam Ka Tung earlier apologized to DOT 2 DOT (DIM DUI DIM)'s new actress Candy Cheung Suet Kun, who he called "Cheung Whoever" that night.

Yesterday the Hong Kong Film Award chair Chan Ka Seung made clarifications. He wrote a "sincere apology" online. "After this year's Hong Kong Film Award, I have been noticing the criticism. I must clarify some comments about the hosts. Regarding the hosts' style, it actually was at the request of the event production team. In order to make the live atmosphere more relaxed, I repeatedly asked each host to give up the traditional hosting methods to host the ceremony with the mentality of a gathering. Each host how bravely volunteered perhaps had some places that were grasped less than accurately, which were only performances that followed my requests. As the person responsible for the production, I should even more so accept criticism and bear the responsibility. I also sincerely apologize to Ms. Cheung Suet Kun and everyone at DOT 2 DOT. From now on we will plan to be even more cautious and work hard on improving."

She added that her husband, Dickson Wong and herself were anxious 'masters': "I am extremely anxious and will keep using towels to wipe his body. (Did your husband help you?) He needed to work but kept calling me continuously." Koni revealed that her son's height was increased suddenly after the fever: "His height increased after the fever. (Which part?) The whole body."

On 18 April 2014, Julian Cheung (張智霖) attended the movie premiere, Dior and I and he touched 7 months pregnant Kathy Chow's (周汶錡) stomach and she was present at the same premiere as well.

Perhaps Julian wish to have another child? He expressed he gained lots of weight during the filming of new movie, Return of the Cuckoo (十月初五的月光) in Macau as he ate many food there. As Julian will be holding his concert in Macau in July, he had started his dieting plan. When asked if he will follow Leon Lai's (黎明) 7 days of diet, Julian expressed he preferred to go for exercises and said: "Dieting is not based on determination but reasons. Opening concert is a good reason and I prefer to use traditional method which is looking for a hell trainer to start hell exercises." Leon Lai taught sitting down quietly for half an hour could reduce weight and Julian said: "I really need to consult him." Julian believed eating is everybody's basic request and restricting diet can bring depression. He added he might wore the same spacesuit and showed off his muscles in the concert,

When mentioned that Nancy Sit (薛家燕) exposed that the boss, Chau Cheok Wa (周焯華) of the movie, Return of the Cuckoo distributed gambling chips to the cast at the casino and they won more than $200,000, Julian said: "Boss brought us for entertainment after eating dinner. He is very nice and purposely let us win money."

Wong Cho Lam (王祖藍) was indeed a devoted husband. Other than arranging a fairy tale wedding, he continued to be romantic to his spouse, Leanne Li (李亞男) and brought her to take ferris wheel as well. It was a beautiful scenery and Cho Lam did not forget to create some amusing jokes: "Taking ferris wheel! Fortunately, my wife and niece did not mistake Bao Beier (包貝爾) as me!" Perhaps Cho Lam is always mistaken as the Mainland China artiste, Bao Beier but there was nothing much he could do.

image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.png     Earlier, when "The Empress of China" was broadcasted in Mainland China, because the cleavage of the actresses were seen as too sexy, they were forced to edit the scenes so that cleavage wouldn't be shown. As a result, many scenes were zoomed in to show only their heads and a lot of the background and costumes could not be seen. As TVB will be broadcasting the drama this week, in order to keep the quality of the production, they spent extra money to hire a professional team to add fabric in front of the actresses' chests, instead of cutting the scenes. The colour and pattern of the clothes are carefully managed, so that the audience cannot tell it is done by the computer. This way, the audience can still see the beautiful scenery and costumes that the audience longed to see in the drama. TVB has also re-edited the drama as a 70 episode production (compared to the 96 episodes in China).

Regarding this "added fabric" version, Kathy Chow, who plays Consort Yang in the drama, commented saying she does not think it's unfortunate that the actresses' "good bodies" are being ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
