The Hong Kong Film Awards Association has awarded their HKFA nominees with a portrait treatment. In honor of the 32nd Hong Kong Film Awards, which will be held on April 13 at the Hong Kong Cultural Center, the nominees gathered together to do a photograph feature for the awards ceremony.
Nominees such as Miriam Yeung (楊千嬅), Pang Ho Cheung (彭浩翔), Nick Cheung (張家輝), Tony Leung Chiu Wai (梁朝偉), Tony Leung Ka Fai (梁家輝), Sammi Cheng (鄭秀文), Sean Lau (劉青雲), Chapman To (杜汶澤), Gordon Lam (林家棟), and first timers Elanne Kwong (江若琳), Sammy Shum (沈震軒), and Alex Tsui (徐家傑) glamorized the photo shoots with their chic fashion and expensive jewelry.
First-time nominee, Elanne Kwong, expressed that she was so thrilled to do the photo shoot that she could not sleep the night before. Elanne is nominated for Best Actress for her weightlifting role in Love Lifting <高舉愛>. She revealed that she gained over 20 pounds for the role and had to undergo excruciating weightlifting training at the same time.
Sammi Cheng is nominated for Best Actress for her role in the romantic drama, Romancing In Thin Air <高海拔之戀II>. This will be Sammi’s fourth nomination for Best Actress and fifth nomination at the Hong Kong Film Awards.
Sammi is grateful for the support of the Hong Kong Films Award Association, and is thankful for her two teachers, director Herman Yau (邱禮濤) and Johnnie To (杜琪峯). “Herman was the one who guided me into this industry. Johnnie is both my friend and teacher, and I really hope to win the Film Queen honor with his film.”
