This year's Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor competition is rather fierce, as all the nominees are master class actors. The Jiang Wen directed and starred Emperor Motion Picture LET THE BULLETS FLY was a critical and commercial hit. Earlier at the China Film Directors' Guild Award it already won three awards. With Jiang Wen confirming his arrival today, his chances are rather high. Fellow LET Best Actor nominee Ge You will not be able to attend with Jiang Wen as he is caring for his ailing father.
Also, Lau Ching Wan's chances are just as high. Although he has two nominations, Simon Yam Tat Wa won the Best Actor under a similar situation and proved that "competition with himself" is a good sign.
