Zhao Wei wins best actress award for Dearest | Updated: 2015-06-01 13:17

An exception made

The best actor award went to Taiwan-based actor Mark Zhao for White and Black Episode 2. Huading has always held the tradition of handing out awards only to those who attend the award ceremony. The unspoken "rule" was broken once to singer Yao Beina, who had passed away due to reoccurrence of breast cancer prior to the 15th Huading Awards. This is the second time an exception was made, as the committee handed out the best actor award to Zhao, who could not physically be there to receive the honor due to rib injuries.

"Please forgive me for not collecting the award myself. I want to thank director Cai Yuexun for making an innovative and bold action film, and giving me opportunities to play Wu Yingxiong," said the actor in a video acceptance speech.

Big winners of the night

Blockbuster Dearest was no doubt the biggest winner of the night.

"We had an amazing time making this film, because we had the best partners in every position, and excellent actors like Zhao Wei, Tong Dawei and Huang Bo to play out the characters. I regard myself very lucky to have had the chance to work with them. But more importantly, I have to thank the audiences. Without their support, I could never gather enough confidence to film more and better films," said Chan during his acceptance.

Dragon Blade, starring China's kung fu superstar Jackie Chan, was awarded for best guidance provided to an action film.

"The 'JC stunt team' (referring to filmmakers and actor who work with Jackie Chan) has gone through 40 year and nurtured seven generations of action stars. We hope the 'JC stunt team' can continue to make better films in the future," said a representative who collected the award.

Adrien Brody, who has worked with Chinese filmmakers several times including director Feng Xiaogang in 1942, was awarded best supporting actor for his role as a prince in ancient Rome in Dragon Blade.

The Huading Awards, established in 2007, recognizes excellence in showbiz based on surveys.
