Veteran director Ann Hui On-wah’s The Golden Era was the biggest winner at the star-studded 34th Hong Kong Film Awards last night, scooping up five prizes.
The movie picked up the best picture and best director awards for Hui – her fifth for directing – as well as for art direction, cinematography and costume and make-up design.
Close behind was crime thriller Overheard 3, which won the best actor prize for Sean Lau Ching-wan – only the second time he has won it despite 16 nominations since the 1990s – the best screenplay and the first best supporting actor award for veteran Kenneth Tsang Kong.
