  • 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards Results

    Monday, Apr 15, 2013 12:00PM / Standard Entry

    Hope you got a chance to see our video and red carpet video from the 32nd Annual HK Film Awards. If not please click here.   BTW - Full results at the bottom!

    Now we'd like to share some of our pictures taken inside the hall for the ceremony.  The HKFA was kind enough to give us a seat in the press zone.  

    This year featured a multifaceted LED screen covered backdrop.

    Two of the early winners, Best New Performer, Alex Tsui (Cold War) and Best New Director Chow Hin Yeung.

    Because this was a live broadcast to TV,  while the commercial breaks were going on, they played film trailers for the all-star audience.  In case you haven't seen it yet, check it out:

    Sammi Cheng stands to acknowledge her 'Best Dressed' award.

    Gigi Leung announcing the winner of Best Supporting Actress.

    The winner was Dada Chen for the film 'Vulgaria'.  She was in tears as immediately once the results were announced.

    After a few minutes she regained her composure

    Legendary director Wong Kar Wai making a special award presentation

    Ronald Cheng won Best Supporting Actor for 'Vulgaria'

    Stephen Fung presented an award as well.

    "Heavenly King" Jacky Cheung performed his Best Original Film Song nominated theme song to the film 'The Last Tychoon'.  Worth the price of admission just to get a free live performance by one of the best Hong Kong singers of all time.

    The song went on to win the award later in the night.  Here's Jacky back up on stage with Leon Ko and Chris Shum who were the composer and lyricist. 

    Award presenter Mavis Fan, who was one of the best dressed on the red carpet changed from white to teal for the ceremony itself.

    A special musical performance withvideo montage marked the 10th anniversary of the passing of Leslie Cheung and Anita Mui, two HK film (and music) stars who passed away within a few short weeks of each other in 2003.  Some of their classic scenes together in various movies were played on the screens as life orchestra performed.

    Jackie Chan and He Jun won the Best Action Choreography award for 'CZ12'.

    Aaron Kwok presenting the Best Director award.

    Codirectors Longman Leung and Sunny Luk won for the film 'Cold War'.

    Not to be outdone by supporting actress winner's tears,  Miriam Yeung also let the tears flow when she won Best Actress for her role in 'Love in the Buff'.

    The Best Actor award was presented by Anthony Wong and Deanie Ip.

    Tony Leung Ka Fai became a 4 time Best Actor winner with this win for his role in 'Cold War'.

    Carina Lau and Andy Lau presented the final award of the night, Best Picture.

    Cold War won for Best Picture (and also won Best Screenplay and several technical awards as well).  A large group of producers, the two directors and much of the lead cast took the stage for a final speech. 

    Sorry for the marathon # of pictures for everyone.  The show itself was quite a marathon! 4 hours just for the show, not including the 2 hours of red carpet beforehand!

    Here's the final results, courtesy of the HKFA Association:

    Friday, Apr 12, 2013 11:48AM / Standard Entry

    We have always viewed the AnD community like an extended family.  Over the years since we've started alive that family has grown as some of our artists and users have gone on to start families of their own.  This includes our cofounder Daniel Wu and his wife Lisa S,  who are expecting their first baby in a few more weeks.  (In case you missed the initial announcement,  here's Daniel's blog breaking the news last December).

    Lisa recently did a video for Frisomum, talking about her experience as a first time mother.  Please check it out, its wonderful to see her enthusiasm for this new chapter in her life! 


    You can check out all the videos and updates from Lisa on their website -

    Best wishes for Lisa and Daniel and we hope to share more wonderful news like this about our extended AnD family for years to come!
