Michelle Yeoh makes post-Oscars appearance at Hong Kong Film Awards

Michelle Yeoh makes post-Oscars appearance at Hong Kong Film Awards

Oscar-winning actress Michelle Yeoh Choo Kheng graced the red carpet at the 41st Hong Kong Film Awards as she presented Best New Performer to Sahal Zaman at the start of the prize-giving ceremony for the city's landmark movie award.
The event starts at 7.30pm at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui.

The 60-year-old Yeoh made a celebratory appearance as the final guest to walk the red carpet of the the most prestigious Hong Kong movie award yesterday, a month after she made history and became the first Asian to win Best Actress at the Oscars with her performance in Hollywood film Everything Everywhere All At Once.

In a golden dress, Yeoh, who is from Malaysia but rose to fame for starring in Hong Kong films, said she was delighted to meet her friends and fans in Hong Kong.

Speaking in native Cantonese, Yeoh said it was her first time in Hong Kong in four to five years, adding that she decided to make time for the Awards even though she is shooting a drama in the United Kingdom.

She thanked the audience for their love and support.

“I feel that I'm a suitable presenter for this award. The first nomination I've ever got, was best new performer for 'Yes, Madam' in 1986,” she said.

Giving advice to actors and actresses, Yeoh said: “As long as we fight and work hard with perseverance, and never give up, dreams do come true.”

She then presented the award to 10-year-old actor Sahal Zaman for his peformance in The Sunny Side of the Street.

The child actor, also the first Southeast Asian winning the category, thanked the movie's director Lau Kok-rui and fellow actor Anthony Wong Chau-sang, who played the role of a taxi driver who helped Zaman's character in the film.

Thriller The Sparring Partner, based on a true event depicting a man and his friend's plot to murder and dismember the former's parents, has gained 16 nominations including best film, actor and actress.

Detective vs Sleuths, Warriors of Future, and Table for Six have each won 11 nominations.

Controversial documentary To My Nineteen Year Old Self also received three nominations for best film, best director and best film editing.

The movie was pulled from cinemas in February after the filmed schoolgirls from Ying Wa Girls' School complained their privacy were infringed.
