Three Kingdom – Resurrection of the Dragon had won several nominations in 2008 Annual Global Chinese Music and Arts Festival and the First China International Television Festival International Television Festival (hereinafter referred to as “2”). With this movie, Andy Lau will also be vying for the Best Actor award with Red Cliff’s Tony Leung and Takeshi Kaneshiro and Ip Man’s Donnie Yen.
“2” organizing company Times Media Asia (Beijing) Co., Ltd. international film and television production expressed that its committee received many political related films, but the competing films are mainly actions, comedies and family films. Nominated Three Kingdom – Resurrection of the Dragon is a classic Chinese period action film. Among the Chinese films nominated are Forever Enthralled, Ip Man, Red Cliff, Three Kingdom – Resurrection of the Dragon and other good films.
From our understanding, for the judging panels of “2”, other than professional critics, another important factors is the box office takings rather than the popularity of the cast. Until press time, the 4 actors vying for the Best Actor award are Andy Lau (Three Kingdom – Resurrection of the Dragon), Donnie Yen (Ip Man), Tony Leung and Takeshi Kaneshiro (Red Cliff).
