Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai) earlier spoke to the media. Speaking of being nominated for Best actor with his TRIVISA (SHU DAI JIU FUNG) co-star Gordon Lam Ka Tung, he stated that he hoped the other lead actor Jordan Chan Siu Chun would have been nominated as well. "Actually Chan Siu Chun's character might be more exaggerated but we studied it and his was the hardest to play among the three of us. If Siu Chun was nominated it would have been better." Siu Chai also had nothing but praise for Lam Ka Tung. "He could get into character at anytime, I really admire his outstanding acting."

Actually it's just like charity work, environmental protection is not a show. I started with me, from Jackie Chan's Stuntman Association on, little by little, slowly I affected even more people.
