Taiwanese actress Gwei Lun-Mei once again clinched the Best Leading Actress award at the 55th Asia Pacific Film Festival in Macau yesterday.

After winning the 49th Golden Horse Award last month, Lun-Mei is given recognition once more for her performance in Gf*Bf  <女朋友。男朋友>. As she had work commitment, she was unable to receive the award personally and the film director represented her on stage.

Winning the 49th Golden Horse Award last month, Sean Lau is unable to clinch the Best Leading Actor this time. Sean, who are widely seen as hot favourite with Tony Leung Ka-Fai eventually lost the award to 82-year-old veteran actor from Philippines, Eddie Garcia. Eddie Garcia won the award for his portrayal of a gay man in Bwakaw.

Hong Kong veteran actor Lo Hoi Pang won the Best Supporting Actor award for his role in Life Without Principle <奪命金>. Japanese actress  Makiko Watanabe clinched the Best Supporting Actress award for her role as a young divorcee in Capturing Dad.

Johnnie To’s Life Without Principle clinched the Best Film award. Hong Kong crime thriller film, Cold War which tops the box office in Hong Kong and Taiwan only managed to secure the Best Film Editing award.

Asked if he was disappointed with the results, Sean said, “I am not particularly disappointed. Life Without Principle won two awards and Best Film represented efforts from every crew. This is more important than winning the Best Leading Actor. I believe Director Johnnie To will feel the same too”.
