20th Annual Hong Kong Film Awards
 
  The 20th HK Film Awards could also be called the "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon Love-Fest". Echoing the film's Best Foreign Language Film win at the Academy Awards, those in Hong Kong saw fit to bestow eight awards on the film, though only Cheng Pei-Pei took home an acting award (for Best Supporting Actress). In the Mood for Love took home five awards, including three for William Cheung Suk-Ping, who probably needed a shopping cart to haul home his booty. Tony Leung Chiu-Wai took home his third Best Actor award (all three for Wong Kar-Wai movies), and Maggie Cheung Man-Yuk took home her fifth for Best Actress. Francis Ng Chun-Yu won for his brilliant work in 2000 A.D., which was the textbook definition of a best supporting role. Even better, he won over Eason Chan Yik-Shun, whose nomination (for Lavender) proves without a doubt that the HKFA nominations are selected by a roomful of monkeys playing bingo.
