Anthony Wong Chau Sun earlier was a guest presenter at the Hong Kong Film Award. On stage he mentioned, "Next year would there be any Hong Kong film?" His original intention was to cheer for Hong Kong film as Hong Kong film would still exist, but he was misunderstood. Jackie Chan once said, "There is no Hong Kong film, only Chinese film." Jackie Chan was present that night and thus some felt that Chau Sun's comment was aimed at Jackie Chan.

Two nights ago Chau Sun made a clarification on facebook. Because his comment was twisted around, as it spread some comments that he did not say were added in. He thus apologized to Jackie Chan. "Although I am not well versed, I wouldn't at a joyous yet serious event insult an elder......the script was already set a week before, I had no idea who would attend. Although I didn't kill Boren, Boren died because me. Here I need to apologize to Big Brother Jackie Chan......"

Many commented on Chau Sun's fb. Some disagreed with his apology. Chau Sun replied, "I disagree that being impolite is civilized!" Some asked if he was forced to apologized. Chau Sun also replied, "I think too much, I was well ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The film KEYBOARD WARRIORS (HEI DAI JO) two nights ago held a wrap banquet. Director Michael Sit Ho Ching, actors Stephy Tang Lai Yun and Lam Yiu Sing attended. Grace Chan Hoi Lam due to work arrived later.

Speaking of Hong Kong Film Award Best Actress defeat, Stephy admitted that she felt lost but not disappointed. "The feeling is like after a big show, I am a little lost. Because I was nervous for several month and preparing for awhile. I wasn't disappointed that I didn't win. I won Best Dressed so I can answer to my sponsors!" Stephy said that she might look at ease in the dress, but it was actually worth HK$ 300,000, hand stitched and heavy. After half a night in her neck was all red.

Did her former boyfriend Alex Fong Lik Sun send a text to comfort her? Stephy said that she did not receive his text. Speaking of Siu Fong telling her to work hard, Stephy said, "I would, I have to maintain my original intention. I like to act, only because of that would I have motivation and goal. I would follow up again and again, I hope to run into another good script and good character!"

Stephy was somewhat upset that Rachel Leung did not win Best New Performer with SOMEWHERE BEYOND THE MIST (LAN TIN BAK WON) and Chapman To ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Making Money from a Grassroots Character! Kenneth Ma: 'Not Yet Enough to Buy a Taxi'

Thursday April 19, 2018 Hong Kong

Artiste Kenneth Ma went to Mong Kok to attend an event to promote the use of electronic payment for transportation. He, who became a cool taxi driver to shoot the commercial, accepted this job due to the popularity of "The Exorcist's Meter". Kenneth laughingly said, "Taxi drivers also have to advance with the times. Back then, I also paid in cash. Sometimes only had a $1,000 bill, which was quite awkward, so using a credit card to pay is also very convenient. Mainland has also been using electronic payment for a long time! (Usually use a credit card?) Basically. Such as going to a parking lot".

Accepted many jobs due to the taxi driver role? Kenneth said, "Temporarily just a commercial. Would not have guessed that such a grassroots character would also be able to help me get a job. It is usually the cool doctor and lawyer type of roles in advertisements. Would not have guessed that a taxi driver would also be able to do so. (Made a lot?) Did not calculate it. Not yet enough to buy a taxi. A taxi licence is very expensive now!" Kenneth also said that the sequel of "Exorcist's" is still being conceptualized: "The producer and the scriptwriter are still conceptualizing. Since the feedback for the first installment was very good, do not want to carelessly make a second installment".

Artistes Ron Ng and Tavia Yeung went to Central to attend an event. Regarding the online feedback for the Shaw Brothers' web drama "Flying Tiger", which stars Ron, being not bad, he laughingly said that he is also chasing after it: "I myself watched 12 episodes. It really is enjoyable to watch. Because it was shot by a movie director, and many of the staff members are also movie people, it is a really good production". Tavia also expressed having supported Ron's performance: "However, I have not seen every episode. The entire work has a great movie feeling. In addition, I like watching fighting and killing! (Interests are very tomboyish?) Yes. It doesn't matter! (Thought about being a fighter girl?) I cannot do it! I am very lousy! Very easy to sprain myself. Okay for me to just watch!"

Regarding a netizen sorting out Ron's works and discovering that he had actually acted out a series of different cop roles, Ron laughingly said, "I did not notice, but I also asked [Virginia] Lok if I could watch my previous works, but she turned me down, telling me to go on the platform to watch because [we] need the views. ('Flying' has a lot of views?) When I checked a few days ago, it seemed to have gone up to 700 million. Also satisfied with the results! (Have a bonus?) No. Since you have asked me, will know what to do next time! (Film 'Flying' again?) Have also mentioned it, since it is such a good script, but I also have been preparing for a movie recently. (Acting as a cop again?) Don't have to this time! Filming a romance film this time".

Francis Ng Chun Yu, Julian Cheung Chi Lam, BabyJohn Choi Hon Yik, Louis Koo Tin Lok and Myolie Wu Hung Yi starred in the Herman Yau Lai To directed film DEATH NOTIFY (UM HAK JEH), which began production yesterday in Sham Shui Po. The fresh out of the oven Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor Koo Tin Lok did not appear, as Chun Yu, ChiLam and BabyJohn took the lead in a rescue scene. A part of the road was blocked off as many actors were dressed as Special Duties Unit members. Some photos were posted on social media and described the shoot as resembling "police gun fight" and very realistic.

Playing cops, Chun Yu, ChiLam and BabyJohn worked with actors in full SDU gears; a small fire took place above the shoot. The team saw the arrival of police and fire vehicles and could only halt production for lunch. Luckily their progress was not affected. Playing ChiLam's girlfriend Wu Hung Yi was not in the shoot yet, but happened to be on the set during the fire. She was in a tent to talk about her role with the director.

Chun Yu, ChiLam and BabyJohn all wore bulletproof vests. They were very serious about the performance. During breaks they would sit ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Hong Kong Film Award Best Supporting Actress Deanie Ip Tak Han at the celebration banquet said that after ths celebration meal she would go home and sleep, because in the morning she had an appointment with a Qi Gong instructor from the U.S. Would she plan to celebration with a vacation? She said that she just went to Canada to see the Northern Light and even took photos. Speaking of her lacking production rate but high award efficiency, Ip Tak Han said, "I never calculated, but when I take a role I have to have a suitable and convincing script. It is a little solemn, I won't choose sci fi, ghost films, comedy cannot be farce."

Ip Tak Han admitted that she wanted to be in a movie that reflected women's issues, for example in poor places in Southeast Asia and Africa many women's issues still exist. Earlier she saw a documentary and commented that she wished she was as smart and capable like Bill Gates to be able to help these poor women. She wanted to bring more attention to them. Would she ask Andy Lau Tak Wa to invest in this subject? She said that she and Wa Jai never thought about that.

The fresh out of the oven Best Actress Teresa Mo Shun Kwan was still very excited at the celebration. She still has not have the time to check her phone. She has not have the chance to tell her husband Au Ting Ping the good news, but believed that he already heard. In addition he always went to bed late, he probably would be waiting for her to get home and share the joy. Mo Mo said that she was very happy to have her daughter with her at the award show for support. She also said that she felt proud of her. Mo Mo admitted that she felt very well rounded with the award. "As an actress I have been in the business for 42 years. 10 years ago I won Supporting Actress, now I won Best Actress. I really am very fulfilled. Actually when Sonny (Ling Man Lung) won I already wanted to cry very fulfilled because his road would be easier. Thus whether I won or not it was not important. However he told me that I had to win." As for Anthony Wong Chau Sun's comment that the future might not have Hong Kong film, Mo Mo said that she did not hear because she was daydreaming long before then.

Mo Mo yesterday already left for her vacation in Japan. She said that originally she planned the trip after a loss, now it has become a ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The 37th Hong Kong Film Awards two nights ago came to an end. The nine major Hong Kong film companies for the first time held a joint celebration in Tsim Sha Tsui, but due to the narrow space, winners and almost 100 media members filled the entrance. Fresh out of the oven Best Actor Louis Koo Tin Lok, Best Actress Teresa Mo Shun Kwan, Best Supporting Actor Philip Keung Ho Man and Best Supporting Actress Deanie Ip Tak Han had to duck and dodge in the crowd to be able to get into the press area for interviews. Goo Jai and Hak Jai were sweating bullets.

Koo Tin Lok won his first Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor. Has his excitement subsided? Goo Jai said that he did not think too much about it. He did not expect to win either. Instead when he saw other winners he felt very sentimental, he felt even more that the award did not just belong to one person but the contribution of everyone. Thus he really wanted to make Hong Kong films well. Speaking of Anthony Wong Chau Sun's comment about Hong Kong film's future, Goo Jai noticed but felt that each person had their own way of expressing themselves. Chau Sun wanted to say how he thought and ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The 37th Hong Kong Film Awards will take place tonight at the Cultural Center. Yesterday a vegetarian worship ceremony took place to pray for a smooth performance. Attending the ceremony included Hong Kong Film Award Association president Derek Yee Tung Sing.

Speaking of the awards constantly running into rainy days, Yee Tung Sing admitted that in recent years the red carpet already added cover against the rain. According to the data the days before the awards had good weather. His only worried was the tight voting schedule, but he still hoped that next year they would be able to avoid "sauna day". "Actually under such a climate I worry the most about female stars keeping to have to fix their makeup. Although the award ceremony flow would not be too affected, it would be very messy."

Siu Bo said that the most out of control time was when the awards took over four hours to finish. Now it would try to control its flow to within three hours. He pointed out that the Hong Kong Film Awards has studied the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
