News Links: Mother’s Day 2009

A Happy Mother’s Day to my mother and all the other mothers out there …

From the comments on News Links: HKFA Housekeeping

YTSL writes: Re: IP MAN winning Best Film. It just seemed so weird after it didn’t win any of the other major awards (like Best Director, Actor, Actress and even Scriptwriter - three of which went to THE WAY WE ARE).

I agree.  IP MAN’s victory seemed to come out of the blue because it had absolutely no momentum going into the Best Film award.  I bet when Carina Lau and Anita Yuen made their way to the podium to present the award, most people in the room were thinking that it was going to be a sweep for THE WAY WE ARE because it had already won Best Supporting Actress, Best Actress, Best Screenplay and Best Director.  After all that, IP MAN’s win must have been particularly galling to supporters of the Ann Hui film.  For them, this was definitely a 送佛送到西 (if you’re going to escort the monk out West, escort him all the way out West) situation.

You know, I’ve been following the HKFAs for more than ten years now and I’m not sure if it’s good for HKFA voters to have freedom or not.  I’m really confused now.  If you’re too free, you’re like the way the Hong Kong Film Awards are now.  Very chaotic.  Taiwan and its Golden Horse Awards are also very chaotic.

I’m gradually beginning to feel that HKFA voters need to be controlled.  If they’re not being controlled, they’ll just vote for who they want.

Unhappy in retirement and, reportedly, in need of money after spending a significant amount of money on medical expenses for one of her daughters, Faye Wong is rumoured to be on the verge of a comeback.  Speculation bubbled over on Friday when images of an upcoming ad for Royal Wind hair care products made its way on the Internet.  The ads, which prominently feature Wong will supposedly debut later this month.

    Wow, you have a thing for Karena Lam! Or you are more infatuated with her than previously.

    That’s a great Christy link! She’s just ridiculously hot as far as I’m concerned.

    “I’m gradually beginning to feel that HKFA voters need to be controlled. If they’re not being controlled, they’ll just vote for who they want.” HA HA! Okay, Jackie!
