The film THE MIDNIGHT AFTER (NA YEH LING SUN, NGOR JOR SEUNG LIU WONG GOK HOI WONG DAI PO DIK HUNG VAN) two nights ago only won the Best Original Film Score. Actors Kara Wai Ying Hung, Lam Suet, Tsui Tin Yau and director Fruit Chan Gor attended the celebration. Winners Ellen Loo (Lo Hoi Tung) and Veronica Lee Shui Han attended. This time was Ellen's first film score. She felt that it was a good experience, anything that she lacked Lee Shui Han made up for it. She said as that when she scored the film she was in a really bad mood, but she focused on her work and the director did not notice any difference; actually every morning after she got up she cried, after that she went to work. When she got home she cried again. That period lasted one to two months, she too has considered to only work on film scores in the future and never perform again. Ellen thanked the doctor and the medication for their help. Now she understood that when she was stuck she should share with her family and friends, instead of waiting until the last minute to ask for help. She also said that the award was the greatest encouragement for her "comeback". She wrote online, "I have never imagined that men would whistle at me in this life. Last night I really heard! it! for! the! first! time!"

This year is director Derek Yee Tung Sing's 14th year in the business. Two nights ago after the Hong Kong Film Awards, he had a special party to celebration. Guests included fresh out of the oven Best Actor Sean Lau Ching Wan and his wife, Alex Fong Chung Shun, Fiona Sit Hoi Kei, Jessica Husan (Suen Huen), Nina Paw Hee Ching and Chin Kar Lok.

Siu Bo said that he hoped the party would encourage the younger actors who did not win; he also said that lately he started lending a hand to young Mainland directors. He also revealed that he might make OVERHEARD 4 (SIT TING FUNG WON 4) with all new actors in hopes of bringing in more freshness.

Two nights ago Fong Chung Shun lost to Kenneth Tsang Kong and did not win Best Supporting Actor. He said that he deserved to lose as the winner's acting was much better; he also said that Hong Kong film investment amount in general has not been as ample as the Mainland. Since he got into the business in Hong Kong he really wanted to help Hong Kong film. As for Siu Bo considering OVERHEARD 4 and wanting him to guest star, Fong Chung Shun joked that he guest starred every time.

Suen Huen just finished a film in Malaysia and played a mother. She said that her ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Yuen Bun, Stephen Tung Wai and Yan Hua with KUNG FU JUNGLE (YUT GOR YUN DIK MO LUM) two nights ago won the Hong Kong Film Award Best Action Choreography. This was also Chi Tan's fourth award in the category, but because he was working on IP MAN 3 in Shanghai he was unable to attend in person.

Two nights ago he just finished work when he learned about the award. He said, "I really want to thank Director (Teddy) Chan Tak Sum, Yuen Bun, Tung Wai and Yan Hua, as well as Emperor, even more importantly the brothers at the Donnie Yen Stuntman Association. Only with their contribution would the action be so exciting." IP MAN 3 will not wrap for another two months. The fight scenes with Mike Tyson will take place in mid May. In order to stay in shape whenever he had free time he would train at the gym. He said that this time with Lord Eight (Yuen Woo Ping) as the action choreographer, he could focus on just acting. He had a lot more time and energy to spend on training. He admitted that he looked forward to working with Tyson very much. Since he represented Chinese kung fu against boxing, he had to be at his best. Chi Tan admitted that he only focused on playing the Ip Man role well. He hoped that through IP MAN 3 he would surpass himself and find a breakthrough.

Vicki Zhao Wei with DEAREST won the Hong Kong Film Award Best Actress. Two nights ago she and two award winner Ivana Wong Yuen Chi attended Sandra Ng Kwan Yu and Peter Chan Ho Sun's celebration. Mainland actor Huang Bo, Louis Koo Tin Lok and Andrew Lau Wai Keung attended. Zhao Wei was in a great spirits and changed in a black dress. She said that she did not dare to think about the result before the race and thanked the jury for voting for her. Her DEAREST character was very different from the ones she played before. She even made a great sacrifice in appearance. She said that it was worth her effort. If she did not perform well no director would ask her to act again. If she did not perform well and played ugly, it would be hard for an actor to take. Luckily director Chan Ho Sun helped her and completed that character that everyone accepted.

Speaking of Huang Bo not winning Best Actor, would Zhao Wei comfort him? She said that he was an action ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Also attended was RISE OF THE LEGEND (WONG FEI HUNG ji YING HUNG YAU MUNG) director Roy Chow Hin Yeung, Eddie Peng Yu-Yan and CAFE. WAITING. LOVE.'s Giddens Ko and cast.

Hui On Wa after winning an award said that in the future she would no longer make award winning films as she wanted to save some opportunities for new directors. Was she truly considering give up her spot? She said, "No, I want to be more low profile since I am old." Would she transition to make commercial films? She said that she would not mind. Every time she has made a film she never thought about making an art film. She only found a suitable format to make it. She did not want to deliberately make some films that were not popular. Now she is already planning a new script. She said that now finding funding is not hard, but next time she might not make a film that would be too revolutionary. She would make a realistic film about Hong Kong. She also said that she wanted to work with Tang Wei again, but she had to have a right film and character. Who else would she like to work with? She said that she has not worked with Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Tony Leung Ka Fai and Sean ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Anthony Wong Chau Sun's Best Director speech brought the 34th Hong Kong Film Award to its climax. Two nights ago Chau Sun's speech supported Hong Kong film while poking fun at Hong Kong electroal reform. He said, "Tonight really is very haunted, yes it's me again. I am still standing here. Hong Kong filmmakers' survival instinct is really very strong, I believe the same goes for Hong Kong film and Hong Kong Film Awards. Today I am here to present Best Director, as usual my invitation has a story. Originally I was to present Best Actor, I said great, give it to Lau Ching Wan. He said 'he only has two nominations this year'. I said two nominations of course is greater than one nomination, why don't you give it to someone who isn't nominated?" When he said that he wanted to give Best Actress to Ah Sa but the event said that it were not in charge, Chau Sun said, "You aren't even in charge of your own business, how bad are you!"

Finally he suggested that he has never been the host, the event said that his words were too edgy and borderline dangerous. If he said anything wrong and they got unfriended it would not be good! Chau Sun continued, "No, I have to be the host...I want REAL...ly to be the host! 'Why don't we do this, we can negotiate, try Best Director, just put it in your pocket first...'"

The cast included Chow Yun Fat, Sylvia Chang, Eason Chan Yik Shun and Tang Wei. To display the title's "elegant" side, famous art director William Chang Suk Ping participated in the production and spent 40 million RMB to construct an "elegant office".

Aside from the actors' solo photos, the poster also had a "shadow boss" in a big office hair design. There probably is another actor yet to be revealed? As for the "Office Godfather" Fat Gor on the poster looked oddly "plastic".
