The 43rd Golden Horse Awards

Forging ahead into the 43rd year, the most renowned Golden Horse Awards Chinese Language Film Competition welcomes entries during 1~20 September. (Entry Form will be available from middle August.) The Nominees will be announced on 23 October and the Golden Horse Awards Ceremony will be held on 25 November in Taipei.

HONG KONG Peter Chan's musical movie "Perhaps Love" racked up the most nominations in the 43rd Golden Horse Awards shortlist announced late Monday, but a fellow Hong Kong director's comeback film and a mainland Chinese newcomer's heist comedy also emerged as top contenders in the major categories.

"Perhaps Love," starring Zhou Xun, Takeshi Kaneshiro and Jacky Cheung, is up for 12 prizes in the prestigious film competition, the Chinese-speaking world's equivalent of the Oscars.

The bulk of them are technical awards, but the movie is also in contention for best film, best director for Chan and best actress for China's Zhou, who has already dominated the Hong Kong movie awards circuit this year with her performance as a movie star caught between past and present loves.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in Taipei, Taiwan on Nov. 25.
