HONG KONG — Peter Chan-helmed period actioner “The Warlords” leads the list of nominations for Taiwan’s 45th Golden Horse Film Awards with 12, including best film, director and actor for star Jet Li.

As expected, Taiwanese hit “Cape No. 7” also made a respectable showing, securing nine noms including film, director and a nomination for outstanding Taiwanese film of the year. Noms were also earned for the film’s leads, Chie Tanaka and Lin Tsung-hui, both in the new performer category.

In a year of epic Chinese-language tentpoles, however, the $80 million John Woo-helmed epic “Red Cliff” was shut out of the major categories, garnering only four noms for supporting actor, visual effects, art direction and makeup/costume design. Announcement was made Thursday, and awards will be presented in Taiwan on Dec. 6.
