The annual 37th Hong Kong Film Awards ceremony took place in the Hong Kong Cultural Centre last night (Apr 15) to honour exemplary works in the Hong Kong movie industry over the past year. The ceremony was hosted by Hong Kong singer-actress Charlene Choi and Hong Kong songwriter Louis Cheung.
During the ceremony, Hong Kong actor Louis Koo bagged his first Best Actor Award from the Hong Kong Film Awards with 2017 crime film Paradox, where he a played a father who is trying to find his missing daughter in Thailand.
This is the third best actor nod the 48-year-old actor received for his performance in Paradox, having previously won the prestigious title at the Asian Film Awards held on March 17 and the Hong Kong Film Directors’ Guild Awards held on March 18.
Hong Kong actress Teresa Mo bagged the Best Actress Award for her female leading role in romance film Tomorrow is Another Day. As the movie has yet to air in the mainland, her win came as a surprise to many.
History film Our Time Will Come walked away with the most awards from the night, securing a total of five accolades under its belt - Best Director, Best Film, Best Supporting Actress, Best Art Direction and Best Original Film Score award. Most notably, critically acclaimed film director, Ann Hui, picked up her sixth best director award for her work in the project.
