Just finished watching the Golden Horse Awards 2007. The freaking show lasted about 4 and a half hours, not including the half hour news at 11pm. The three Singaporean films which got nominated for some awards didn't really score much.
Just Follow Law and 881 didn't bag any awards, although Home Song Stories got a few, including Best Female Lead. That's quite an achievement, even though the actress wasn't Singaporean. Haha. But still, getting nominated is an achievement by itself already, so I guess there's still something to be proud of.
The biggest winner was of course, Lust, Caution by Director Li An. It bagged quite a few huge awards like Best Newcomer, Best Costume Design, Best Director, Best Film of the Year and some other awards.
Jay Chou's Secrets didn't do too badly either, bagging Best Animation or something, Best Taiwan Film, Best Theme Song, and some other Best award. I think it was for the music. You know, that piano piece that allows the female lead to transport back and forth in time? Yea, that.
The only reason why I bothered sitting through 5 long hours(including the News) of such a boring and dry ceremony was because of the Singaporean nominations. Somehow, it gave me a sense of pride to see our local movies being nominated for such prestigous awards. And to be truthfully honest, the ceremony wasn't really that boring. At least the 3 hosts tried as much as they could to provide a little entertainment. Thank God for that.
I procrastinated again. Haven't studied for Common Test. I am SO dead. Need to go catch up on my sleep already. Tomorrow's gonna be Mugging Day. Can't wait for Thursday, because that's when MY holidays start. Good night~!
