The 26th HK Film Awards

First off, ta to Man Utd and Wayne Rooney fer getting ‘Doctor bloody Who’ to me on time, and me cheque’s int post.

Long story ~ no tickets fert film awards this year. However, not crying about it too much, as it means I don’t have to suffer any Jay Chau fans screaming like murder every time his name is vaguely hinted at.

Anyway, it all took place just a few hours ago at the Cultural Centre (a little different from last year’s Coliseum arrangement, eh?). So here we are: a quick squiz at some o the bigger categories. For the complete list, take a look at the homepage.

So Mr K (Aaron Kwok / 郭富城 / Gwok Fu-Sihng / Sihng-Sihng / God of Dance / Ah Wong, etc.)’s film 'After This Our Exile (父子)' garnered no less than ten nominations ~ as if we were counting. We just wanted him to actually win in Hong Kong fer a change. Two Taiwanese Golden Horse awards are lovely, an’ all that, but there’s nowt like winning at home, now is there? Come on folks, what the bloody hell does he have to do fer HK audiences and judging panels to appreciate him? Fucking ‘ell, what do you want, blood? Just not right. To be honest, I haven’t seen all the other performances, but I’m still mightily miffed our Aaron didn’t win. Well, kind of thinking its monumentally unjust, actually. That was a towering, bloody magnificent performance. And if that dunt deserve to win, I honestly don’t know what does.

At least we got Best Film, and Tony Leung Chiu-Wai gave out the award, and was wee and lovely. But small consolation ~ we wanted Aaron fer Best Actor! Just not right, I tell you, just not right…

But I have to say, I love Chow Yun-Fat fer his little presentation-speech-ont-sofa piece. Aw, lovely ~ “just want to bite him all over”, as Kaylee would say. And wee Ian won Best Supporting Actor and Best New Performer – not bad fer ten years old, I think. A bit disappointed that ‘Deathnote’ didn’t win, cos it were a bloody cracking piece of film. But never mind, eh? Praps it were a bit fast-moving fer HK audiences. I bloody loved it, though.

So a little bit of a roller-coaster then. At times fun, at times plain funny (Cheung Ga-Fai is a riot as a presenter), but ultimately disappointing ~ again. When will they finally give Aaron the award?

I’ll call England and have a rant. No peach and lube tonight, no smiles and nods. Just plain time fer bed, said Zebedee.
