‘The Bold’ and ‘Great Buddha+’ Triumph at Golden Horse Awards

Ang Lee, Taiwan’s best known filmmaker, was on hand to give out prizes and add a sense of occasion to the annual Golden Horse Awards in Taiwan. The awards are considered the most prestigious prizes of the year for Chinese-language films.

In the end, Lee did not give a prize to his son Mason Lee, who had been nominated for a best supporting actor award in “Who Killed Cock Robin?” The thriller, with five nominations, but no silverware, arguably received the biggest snub of the night.

The best film prize went to Taiwanese mystery thriller “The Bold, The Corrupt, and The Beautiful.” It also earned prizes for best actress and best supporting actress.

The picture with the greatest numerical haul was Taiwanese movie “The Great Buddha+,” which is now busily doing the rounds of the international festivals.

Another festival favorite, mainland Chinese film “Angels Wear White,” earned Vivian Qu, the prize for best director. “We are ecstatic to see Vivian being recognized for her prolific cinematic style in telling a hard-hitting story of the society’s marginalized. The film was also very well-received by the Singapore audience at our gala screening two days ago,” said Yuni Hadi, executive director of the Singapore International Film Festival.
