The 43rd Taiwan's Golden Horse Film Awards

Winners of Taiwan's 43rd Golden Horse Awards, claimed to be "The Chinese Oscar", have been announced on Saturaday in Taipei. Hong Kong movies once again dominated the event this year. In recent years, most Hong Kong movies are no longer purely Hong Kong made but rather co-produced by mainland Chinese companies. Meanwhile, more and more mainland Chinese productions are co-financed by Hong Kong studios. This year, After This Our Exile, a low-budget Hong Kong drama about a father and a his infant son's bumpy relationship, takes home three awards, Best Feature Film, Best Leading Actor and Best Supporting Actor. Hong Kong director Peter Chan's Perhaps Love, a musical about a love-triangle co-produced by Hong Kong and the mainland China received four awards - Best Director, Best Leading Actress, Best Cinematography and Best Original Film Song. Chinese mainland director Feng Xiaogang's The Banquet, a Hamlet inspired period drama, also jointly produced by the mainland China and Hong Kong, received two statuses for Best Art Direction and Best Makeup & Costume Design (thanks both to Tim Yip). Do Over, a Taiwan made small drama about several men and women's stories at a new year eve party, takes two awards - Best Original Film Score and Best Film Editing
