The 55th Asian Pacific Film Awards were held on December 15 at Macau’s Venetian Hotel to give recognition to excellence in the Asian film industry. The gala was not a typical star-studded event like other prominent film award ceremonies. Only a few famous Hong Kong movie stars such as Sean Lau (劉青雲), Carina Lau (劉嘉玲), Tony Leung (梁家輝), Denise Ho (何韻詩), and Kara Hui (惠英紅) were present at the ceremony. However, numerous TVB artists, such as Kate Tsui (徐子珊), Bosco Wong (黃宗澤), Kenneth Ma (馬國明), Eliza Sam (岑麗香), JJ Jia (賈曉晨), and Oceane Zhu (朱璇) dressed in glamorous formal attire and sparked a media frenzy during the red carpet entrances.

Eric Tsang was the Chairman of the organizing committee for the 55th Asian Pacific Film Festival, which may explain the abundance of TVB artists at the awards ceremony.

Guest performers at the awards included Wilson Chin (錢國偉) and Super Gear who performed the Hong Kong version of Psy’s “Gangnam Style”. Kate Tsui, dressed in a sexy lacy bustier outfit, danced and sang to the song “Nobody” which garnered the most cheers from the audience. Other performances included Eliza Sam and Mathew Ko (高鈞賢) reenacting a scene from the popular Taiwanese film, You Are the Apple of My Eye <那些年,我們一起追的女孩>. JJ Jia and Bro5 performed some acrobatic kung fu moves.

The Best Dressed Celebrities

With her usual elegance, Carina Lau wore a black deep V neck gown that captured a lot of attention from the media. Sean Lau’s wife Amy Kwok (郭藹明) also looked gorgeous in her white Greek goddess gown. Although  Denise Ho looked beautiful and feminine in a red evening gown at the Golden Horse Awards, she reverted to her boyish style wearing a leather jacket and pants at the Asian Pacific Film Awards.

The best dressed in the ceremony were TVB actresses, Kate Tsui, Oceane Zhu, and Eliza Sam. The hot favorite to win the title of TV Queen, Kate, looked her best in a beautiful strapless low cut long evening gown, and she did not miss any chance to campaign for more votes during the ceremony. Oceane was the most eye catching artist of the night as she wore a low-cut silver evening gown which revealed her great figure. Eliza dressed in an unique red evening gown that she designed herself. She mentioned that the gown only cost $250 HKD but it turned out to be quite elegant. Eliza said, “I have studied fashion design and know exactly which shop at Sham Shui Po to buy the right fabrics.” With her talent in design, Eliza is considering designing dresses for other actresses, as she had already designed a few gowns in the past.

55th Asian Pacific Film Awards

Notable Winners

Many winners were not present to accept their awards. One of the notable winners is the Hong Kong film, Life Without Principle, which won the Best Film Award. However, Sean Lau did not win the Best Actor award as he lost out to the Filipino actor, Eddie Garcia who plays a gay pensioner in the film, Bwakaw.

Gwei Lun Mei won the Best Actress award for her performance in the film, Girlfriend, Boyfriend, but she was absent at the ceremony. Hong Kong veteran actor, Lo Hoi Pang won the Best Supporting Actor Award for his performance in the film, Life Without Principle, but he too was not present. Therefore, his good friend, Sean Lau accepted the award for him.

      Kate indeed hot !, seeing her everywhere lately.
      Attending and performing at film awards event might help her in movie career.

      I believe she will do well in movie instead TV Drama.

      She should be good, roles such as James Bond Girl ,role similar lara croft tomb raider, lady triad head ( She did very well on Short of Love together with Wong Cho Lam.)
      My favorite, where she won 2007 Hong Kong Film Award for Best New Performer “Eye in the Sky”

      Bosco, this is not TVB’s award ceremony where you can come in rags. There are certain events where you should leave your fashion risks at home. I feel mildly embarrassed for him when everyone else is all clean and fitted
