Since Deanie Ip won the Best Actress award with A Simple Life in Venice Film Festival, she continued to win 4 other Best Actress awards in several other film awards ceremonies and festival. The 31st Hong Kong Film Awards which will be held this Sunday, Deanie who is nominated for Best Actress naturally become the hot favorite, however director Andrew Lau feels that Shu Qi in his directed film – A Beautiful Life will win the Best Actress award, whereas Andy Lau will win the Best Actor award.
Andrew feel that as a film investor, Andy did not pick a commercialize film but rather a dark horse heart warming film to invest, that shows his confidence in the film. He said: “You can see that Andy changed his usual way of acting in the film, seeking changes, he made daring attempts in terms of investing and acting, it’s a good mentality!” Andy kept his acting low profile, no wonder it’s said that he’s not the male lead but the largest supporting actor of Deanie, however Andrew think otherwise, he said: “Sometimes everybody’s thinking is wrong, the male lead need not stand above all, this sort of acting from Andy will be like the character he’s entrusted to, not for him to show off in the whole film, he’s willing to take up the role, not every actor will do so, many actor will be calculative with you, complaining that the film title ‘Tao Jie’, clearly it’s not about male.”
