View complete list

HONG KONG — Firm favorites Wong Kar Wai’s “2046” and Stephen Chow’s “Kung Fu Hustle” won six honors apiece at Sunday’s Hong Kong Film Awards.

“Hustle” took home film, supporting actor (Yuen Wah), editing, choreography, sound design and visual effects.

“2046” won actor (Tony Leung Chiu-Wai) and actress (Zhang Ziyi) as well as cinematography, art direction, costume, makeup design and original film score.

Derek Yee scooped director and screenplay awards for crime thriller “One Night in Mongkok.”

Supporting actress went to Bai Ling for “Dumplings.”

Asian film kudos went to south Korean helmer Chan-wook Park’s revenge tale “Old Boy.”

Wong Ching Po, who won new director, is ready to hit the ground running this year. He will helm Filmko’s “Ah Sou,” which will begin shooting next month, as well as a high-definition film to be part of Andy Lau’s Focus: First Cuts project for six new directors.

To honor 100 years of Chinese cinema, clips were played throughout the show from early 20th century B&W silent films to Bruce Lee and Taiwan pics. Bruce Lee’s daughter Shannon Lee accepted a star of the century award on his behalf at the ceremony.

Awards also were given to Jackie Chan and Yu Mu-yun, a Hong Kong film scholar, for their achievements and services to the industry.
