The Golden Rock - Not-So-Live Golden Horse Awards 2009 Edition

For some reason, no Hong Kong television station is showing this year’s Golden Horse Awards live (does the lack of HK presence play any role in it?). So all I could do was watch the entertainment news channel and update the awards list as I go. Now that I find out it was simulcasted on the internet live, maybe I can live-blog it again next year.

Until then, here’s the winners list:

The Golden Rock - Most Awesome Music Video Edition

Apologies for not catching up on the news lately. But as a compensation, I would like to give you the most awesome music video in contemporary Hong Kong pop culture:

It’s Ekin. Aaron. Not just together in movies anymore. They’re now joined in song:

You gotta love the man-brace in the end.

Storm Warriors better be the most super-duper awesome-est movie ever made. After Founding of a Republic, of course. Copyright © 2002-2019 Ross Chen
