Actors in Worst Films of 2012

What is the point of puting out a list of worst films of the year if the actors are out of consideration? After all, a bad film cannot succeed in being a bad film without a bad cast! Here is Sohu’s choice for the top three actors in the worst films of the year!

Worst Film Queen – Yang Mi

Nominated Work: Wu Dang <大武當之天地密碼>, Holding Love <HOLD住爱>

Yang Mi (杨幂) may be 2012’s highest grossing film actress, but do not let that deceive you into believing that she is the best of the year. Out of her long laundry list of films and television dramas that were released in 2012, only two – Love in the Buff <春嬌與志明> and The Bullet Vanishes <消失的子彈> – were considered to be decent works, and she was not even a major character in either movie. Other than those, the rest of her films were underwhelming and criticized for their poor quality.

But Yang Mi is still young and growing. Many successful actors, such as Chow Yun Fat (周潤發), Tony Leung(梁朝偉), Brigitte Lin (林青霞), and Joey Wong (王祖賢), had their fair share of bad films. After all, Yang Mi has the looks and the body. With proper training and a good selection of films, Yang Mi can improve her resume credentials in no time.

Worst Film King – Hawick Lau

Nominated Work: Holding Love

As Holding Love is one of the worst films of the year, it is difficult for a cast member to not make it into the worst list of actors and actresses. If Yang Mi gets in, surely her onscreen and real life boyfriend, Hawick Lau (劉愷威), will also get in. Is that what Hawick wants? To be together forever with Yang Mi? We must not separate these lovebirds apart!

But there is chance for Hawick to redeem himself. His television dramas are not bad at all. If he sticks to television dramas, it is possible to see Hawick win a Best Television Actor of the Year in the near future.

Worst Film Queen Dowager – Cecilia Cheung

Nominated work: The Lion Roars 2 <河東獅吼2>

Yang Mi may have succeeded Cecilia Cheung’s (張栢芝) spot last year as worst film queen, but placing herself on the list for three years in a row, Cecilia deserves to earn another mention. Cecilia is now the queen dowager of worst films, and rightfully so. We thought Cecilia would take another long hiatus from acting after her comeback film, Legendary Amazons <杨门女将之军令如山>, flopped in the box office in 2011. Cecilia thought she could have another go with The Lion Roars 2 in 2012, but we all know how that turned out.

  1. OMG, they actually make it to the Worst Film Queen & King? hahaa OMG, funny…that movie really was horrible. I am surprised Hawick Lau takes such a part but probably b/c of the g/f then i mean, such a stupid script n yet they take the role. sigh…… pls do give both of them the award then, together forever in everything haha….

    1. they get to hang out together and make money? probably sounded great to them.

      1. Not if it ends up ruining their careers. They are both do really well atm, but it doesn’t seem like any of their collaborations are anything but duds.

  2. With respect to Yang Mi/Hawick Lau, I would also nominate them to be the worst high-profiled couple of the year.

    Just everything about this May/December romance comes across extremely irritating.

    1. LOl I totally agree! I would give them the worst high profiled couple! ^_^

  3. I think Cecilia should be no. 1 still. Mini Yang has been in many films, but she wasn’t the main lead/top billing in them.

    Cecilia, however. Holy crap. She is bad.

    Treasure Hunt, Legendary Amazons, Shadows of Love…oh my god. Well, I guess we’re only counting 2012 here…

    1. She is number 1 as Empress Dowager in bad films. The movies she took part in had really bad scripts. Her acting is not bad, but the movies were so bad that I couldn’t watch 5 minutes of the films. Yang Mi’s acting is very bland. She should stick with idol dramas.

    2. Well if we count the number, I think crystal liu would be worst film queen, she got 3 movies in the top 10 worst film? Thou we don’t know how this award work, so yea >_>

      1. My bad, somehow I thought she has 3 movies in the list lol

    3. i guess this is why she is not Queen. She is now Queen Dowager!!

  4. I thought Cecilia’s comeback was considered successful. None of her films did well at all? And Yang Mi being on the list is a total shock considering how popular she became after Palace. You would think she would choose films with good scripts and strong roles. Well, maybe 2013 will be a better year for both women.

    1. Popular doesn’t mean that she has great skill/ is a good actress, or her movie is good. I saw wu dang and her character was typical and annoying >___< too many Botox

      1. How did it manage to miss a whole sentence? Between >_< and too many Botox was comment about Hawick, I don't think he will win best actor award for tv because he can't frown, he can't deliver facial expression due to many Botox

    2. i would say she (cecilia) is succesful in cashing in another few buckets for her movies. but not so succesful in choosing good movies/projects.

  5. I like Cecilla’s acting (in movies I have watched). I just think she got a very bad script. The ‘incident’ really took a toll on a lot of people.

  6. Why is Hawick Lau chosen as ‘Worst Film King’? He was in only one movie and his movie is not even the worst in the ‘Top 10 Worst Films’ list. ‘Holding Love’ was 4th in the worst list.

    1. they probably just want to pair him up w/the G/F in any event? hahha i am surprised too i mean that movie they did together is in fact boring, bad script and everywhere else but still he does NOT do that many movies to get nominated for anything. Isn’t he just a TV star @ the most u know…

  7. I am a bit confused. This worst and best is based on personal opinion or box office numbers?
