After clinching the best lead actor award last year, Andy Lau (劉德華) will play a different role in this year Golden Horse Awards.
It has been announced that Andy will be appointed as the Chairman of the judging panel in the 49th Golden Horse Awards. As Andy has never been involved in the judging work, his appointment came as a surprise in the industry.
Executive Director of the Committee, Mr Wen Tianxiang (聞天祥) disclosed, “We have been eyeing on Andy Lau for a long time! We need a successful veteran to lead the judging panel. After the awards ended last year, we can feel his support and gratitude towards the Golden Horse Awards. Hence, we proceeded with our bold invitation.”
Andy is also prepared to spend a considerable amount of time to review all the nominees’ works.
