Monday August 1, 2016 Hong Kong

 

 

image.jpg image.jpg     Taiwanese celebrity Ruby Lin (林心如) and Wallace Huo (霍建華) conducted their wedding in Bali and her chest evidently increased when wearing the wedding gown. Her good friend, Shu Qi (舒淇) said: "Although it happens suddenly, but it is worth it when seeing you sexily. Love you!"

Based on understanding, some guests wished Ruby to give birth quickly during the wedding banquet and Ruby leaked it out this time: "Thank you! There will be 3 family members soon!"

Ruby and Wallace returned to Taiwan from Bali today and she was shocked upon seeing many reporters at the airport. Ruby was dressed in casual clothes and her stomach looked slightly bigger. It seems that she will have good news to announce soon and apparently, they looked tired.

Taiwanese celebrity Ruby Lin (林心如) and Wallace Huo (霍建華) held their wedding in Bali and the romance and their sentimental actions become the highlight. Vicki Zhao (趙薇), Fan Bingbing (范冰冰) and Ruby become good friends after filming My Fair Princess (還珠格格) series also attended Ruby's wedding and it 'steals' the limelight of the wedding.

Although they filmed My Fair Princess series 19 years ago, but their friendship remain close and Vicki and Bingbing continue to attend Ruby's wedding despite their hectic work schedules. Their group photo remind us of the classic series immediately.

In the photo, Ruby's chest size increases and Bingbing's white dress looks similar to Ruby's wedding gown. Vicki is dressed more casually and perhaps she does not want to 'steal' the limelight from Ruby.

Mainland Chinese audiences will be unable to catch Andy Lau Tak-wah, Jacky Cheung Hok-yau and Aaron Kwok Fu-shing on official broadcast as the former Heavenly Kings of Canto-pop vie for best actor glory at this year's Hong Kong Film Awards ceremony at the Cultural Centre on April 3.

In what is generally believed to be a response to the best picture nomination of Ten Years --a politically sensitive film previously slammed by Communist Party mouthpiece Global Times for being absurd and pessimistic -- the mainland web portal QQ.com has pulled out from airing the ceremony, despite pre-existing contractual agreement with the awards association.

The association will lose out on a purported broadcasting fee of up to HK$5 million if the cancellation is confirmed, said Derek Yee Tung-sing, chairman of the association's board of directors, in an interview with Ming Pao Daily. "We can understand why this film exists, and why this has become an issue," he said.

This year's nomination list was decided by 1,149 registered voters -- including this writer -- of which more than 63 per cent have cast their votes. The best picture nod is Ten Years' only nomination at the awards. Port of Call , a grisly murder story that is anticipating a censored release in the mainland later this year, leads the pack with 13 nominations.

Ten Years screened to a sold-out crowd at Ma On Shan Classics Cinema on February 12, which marked a premature end to the low-budget films surprisingly profitable theatrical run. By taking in close to HK$6 million at the domestic box office, it has become one of the highest-grossing independent films in Hong Kong cinema history. And the films distribution prospects abroad are only starting to look up. According to a February 6 post on its official Facebook page, Ten Years overseas rights have been picked up by Golden .....

Hong Kong’s film industry struggling to regain the fame as China enters the limelight

One winter night in the German capital, Hong Kong film director Johnnie To Kei-fung led the cast and crew of his feature, Sparrow, a drama about the city’s pickpockets, as he strutted down the red carpet for the film’s premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival.

 

The highly spirited group was dressed to the nines and waved at fans and photographers lining up along the red carpet, taking interviews from press flown in from all over the world. At that moment, Hong Kong film was the centre of the universe.

 

It was 2008 – the last time a Hong Kong film was selected to compete for the Golden Bear, the top award at a festival that will celebrate its 66th anniversary on February 11.

 

Analysis of entries at the world’s top three film festivals – Berlin International Film Festival, Cannes Film Festival and Venice Film Festival – revealed that Hong Kong films had little to no presence in recent years. There were no Hong Kong films among the nominations for best film announced this week in this year’s Asian Film Awards either.

 

Compared to the late 1990s to early 2000s when local films and filmmakers were in the global limelight, rubbing shoulders with masters from all over the world and even beating them at major awards in recognition of their artistic merits, Hong Kong cinema has certainly lost its charm.

 

“It’s true that not many films by a younger generation of filmmakers can make it to festival competitions at that level,” said director Adam Wong Sau-ping, a rising star after earning acclaim with small budget film The Way We Dance and recent hit She Remembers, He Forgets.

A Hong Kong actors face was blurred out on a programme on Chinas state television after he shared a news report on social media about a new book suggesting that the former Chinese premier Zhou Enlai was gay, a news website reported.

Wong Heis face was pixelated out throughout his appearance on the reality TV programme The Great Challenge on the station CCTV 1 on Sunday evening, Kankanews.com reported.

The show features celebrities taking on various challenges and the programme with Wong involved stars becoming firefighters.

Wang An, a Beijing-based singer, posted on social media that Wong had blasphemed against Zhou Enlai on Facebook and called for him to be taken off the show.

Wang is a self-claimed anti-Taiwan independence singer and his post on January 1 now has over 6,000 likes and 1,000 shares on Weibo, Chinas equivalent to Twitter.

[Wong Hei] earns money and buys a flat in the mainland, eating and drinking well, then condemns mainland China when [he has] returned to Hong Kong and Taiwan. We have to report these kind of people, wrote Wang.

The director of the programme replied to Wang on social media: If we knew this, we wouldnt have employed him; if employed, we wouldnt have recorded; if recorded, we wouldnt use; if used, we wouldnt air.

The singer Wang was referring to a news report Wong shared on Facebook about a new book suggesting that Zhou was gay, the Apple Daily reported.

The Secret Emotional Life of Zhou Enlai was written by the Hong Kong-based author Tsoi Wing-mui.

Wong Hei said on Monday afternoon he regretted sharing the story on Facebook and it was never his intention to cause any offence to people on the mainland.
