THE GRANDMASTER Wins 12, Dominates Hong Kong Film Awards

James Marsh, Asian Editor
The 33rd Hong Kong Film Awards have just announced their winners and unsurprisingly it was Wong Kar Wai's The Grandmaster that dominated the evening, scooping a phenomenal twelve awards, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Screenplay and Best Action Choreography. Adam Wong's dance comedy The Way We Dance took 3 awards, including Best Song, Best New Actor for Babyjohn and Best New Director, while Juno Mak's Rigor Mortis also performed well, winning Best Supporting Actress for Kara Hui and Best Visual Effects.

Nick Cheung managed to beat out Tony Leung to take the Best Actor prize for his role in Dante Lam's Unbeatable, while Zhao Wei's directorial debut So Young won the Best Cross-Strait Chinese Language Film, but otherwise it was Wong Kar Wai's stylish Ip Man biopic that triumphed in every other category.
