Hong Kong artists tipped to sweep Chinese 'Oscars'

Hong Kong artists were tipped to sweep the Golden Horse Film Awards, the Chinese-language "Oscars," at a glittering ceremony attended by top stars. Hong Kong director Peter Chan leads the nominations with 12 nods for his movie "Perhaps Love" including for best film, best director and best actress for China's Zhou Xun. The run-up to the glamorous ceremony has been overshadowed by the sudden withdrawal of nominations from internationally acclaimed director Tsai Ming-liang and noted Chinese contemporary Tian Zhuangzhuang. An angry Tsai, who has won awards at the prestigious Cannes, Berlin and Venice film festivals, vowed to "forever boycott" the Golden Horse awards after judges criticised his latest work, "I Don't Want To Sleep Alone," during the nomination process.
