The LoveHKFilm Awards
The criteria for selection or the method to the madness

Top Ten Movies of the Year
These ten movies were good. Previously, only five movies were honored, but this category was expanded in 2004.

Bottom Five Movies of the Year
These ten movies were bad. Previously, only five movies were honored, but this category was expanded in 2004.

Best Male Performance
Given to the Best Male Performance. Created in 2004.

Best Female Performance
Given to the Best Female Performance. Created in 2004.

Greatest Performance Ever
Given to a performance which struck our panel as being exceptional and/or worthy of note. This award was retired in 2004.

Most Charismatic Performance
The winner of this award delivered a performance which possessed exceptional charisma, i.e. they made audiences like them. Lifetime achievement winners: Chow Yun-Fat.

Funniest Performance
This performance caused much laughter. Stephen Chow never wins this award because it would simply not be fair. Occasionally this award is given to an unintentionally funny performance. Donnie Yen would be a good example.

Most Lovable
Given to the year's most cuddly and/or adorable performer. Winners of this award have tended to be female, though in 2006, a male won the award. Fittingly, he was a baby.

Most Underrated Performance
The winner of this award delivered a fine performance which was not recognized as such. Or, they were recognized and the panel of judges simply didn't know about it.

Best Overacting
Given to a performance which was entertaining and/or exceptional despite the massive amounts of chewed scenery. Lifetime achievement awards: Simon Yam, Anthony Wong, Francis Ng.

Worst Overacting
This performance was overdone, obnoxious, egregious and/or just plain wrong. Al Pacino could win this award many times over.

Most Annoying Performance
Sometimes a performance will bother the living crap out of you. This award goes to that performance. Lifetime achivement winners: Dayo Wong, Nat Chan Bak-Cheung, Dicky Cheung Wai-Kin.

Taking up Space
A popular award given to actors who occupy space with little or no craft, effort or talent. Lifetime achievement winners: Ekin Cheng, Michael Wong.

 

Missing in Action
Given to a film professional who has made a welcome return after a noticeable absence. Everytime Maggie Cheung makes a Hong Kong film, she deserves this award.

Career Suicide
This popular award is given to a film professional who made a very dubious career choice. Lifetime achievement winners: Anita Yuen.

Funniest Film
This film caused an abundance of hee-haws, though it does not necessarily need to be a good film.

Best Romance
Not necessarily a love story, this film was able to conjure up all those gooshy feelings which make people's faces turn bright red.

Most Guilty Pleasure
The panel of judges enjoyed this film despite the fact that it may be: poorly executed, silly, politically incorrect, or simply put, crap.

Biggest Disappointment
This award is given to a film that did not live up to its expectations. It may not be a bad movie, but somehow we expected it to be better.

What the-?
What occurs in the winner of this award is a mystery waiting to be solved. Another possible name for this award is "Most Bizarre."

Best Action
Inspired action choreography. A self-explanatory award.

Worst Action
Uninspired, inappropriate, or just plain boring action choreography.

Best Production Values
This movie looks like it cost a lot of money to make.

Worst Production Values
This movie looks like it was made with pocket change. Wong Jing may have had something to do with the winner of this award.

Most Overrated Film
This film received acclaim when it was not so good, or massive acclaim when it wasn't the greatest film ever.

Most Underrated Film
This film unjustly received little acclaim. Or, it was roundly praised and the panel of judges didn't know about it.

The Special Award
Randomly awarded for something exceptional and/or notorious.

Entertainer of the Year
Given to a film professional who did exceptional work, or simply made lots of movies that weren't bad. Making a lot of money helps, too.
