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)

The Hong Kong Film Awards this year added a "Walk with Hong Kong Film Awards" alliance project. The "HKFA Caring" ambassador artist Louis Koo Tin Lok, the Hong Kong Film Awards president Derek Yee Tung Sing and many artists made promotional short films for the Hong Kong Alliance for Rare Diseases. The meaning of "HKFA Caring" is for the Hong Kong Film Award and community organization to walk shoulder to shoulder, the idea is to turn the community love and care in the film into actual action. The Hong Kong Film Award Association would assist with alliance promotions for the community to be more educated about "rare diseases" and hope that everyone would listen to their wishes for rare disease patients and their family to positivetly face tomorrow.

At the 37th Hong Kong Film Award Sunday, Goo Jai, the Hong Kong Film Award president Yee Tung Sing, Hong Kong Alliance for Rare Diseases president Tsang Kin Ping would walked the red carpet with many friends with rare diseases and their families and attend the ceremony for rare disease patients to personally experience the Hong Kong Film Award's live atmosphere.
