Above: “Gf*Bf” earns seven nominations in the 49th Golden Horse Film Awards.

The nominations for Taiwan’s 49th Golden Horse Film Awards were announced on October 2. Taiwanese film, Gf*Bf <女朋友。男朋友> and controversial mainland Chinese film, Mystery <浮城谜事>, led with seven nominations. Hong Kong’s Life Without Principle <奪命金> and Vulgaria <低俗喜劇> earned six and three nominations respectively.

Gf*Bf and Mystery will compete in the Best Feature Film, Best Director, Best Leading Actress, and Best Original Screenplay categories.

Set amidst thirty years of Taiwan’s rapid social change, Gf*Bf traces a complex love relationship among three friends who discover deception, betrayal and finally the true value of their friendship. As Taiwan’s strongest film to emerge this year, Gf*Bf also earned Golden Horse nominations for Director, Yang Ya Che (楊雅喆); leading actor Joseph Chang (張孝全); leading actress Gwei Lun Mei (桂綸鎂); and supporting actor Chang Shu Hao (張書豪).

Suspense thriller, Mystery, which upset mainland Chinese censors for touching upon police corruption and the portrayal of its wealthy class,  also snagged nominations for Lou Ye (婁燁) as Best Director, Hao Lei (郝蕾) as Best Actress, and Qi Xi (齊溪) as Best New Performer.

Hong Kong films had a strong presence in this year’s Golden Horse Film Awards nominations. Johnnie To’s (杜琪峯) Life Without Principle had six nominations, including Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Sean Lau (劉青雲) for Best Actor, and Denise Ho (何韻詩) for Best Actress.

Pang Ho Cheung’s (彭浩翔) Category III sex comedy, Vulgaria, won three nominations, including Chapman To (杜汶澤) for Best Actor, Ronald Cheng (鄭中基) for Best Supporting Actor, and Dada Chan (陳靜) for Best Supporting Actress.
