17 Feb – Ben Yuen recently admitted that his fans were disappointed that he was not nominated in the Best Actor category for the upcoming Hong Kong Film Awards.
As reported on Mingpao, the actor who spoke to the media about his lack of nomination at the said awards for his performance in "Suk Suk" despite previously securing a spot in the Best Actor category at the Golden Horse Awards for the same movie, stated that many thought he should have been nominated among the other actors after he successfully received a nomination at the Taiwanese awards.
"But I understand. The two awards have different standards and systems, so all I can say is that I am sorry for disappointing them. But still, I am elated that "Suk Suk" has nine nominations," he said.
Ben also stated that he is happy that friends like Cheung Tat Ming and Chu Pak Hong are also nominated this year.
"Last year, I had the chance to be nominated and everybody was happy for me, so why wouldn't I be happy for them?" he added.
Despite not being nominated, his co-star Tai Bo did secure a spot in the category, and will be competing against Jackson Yee (BETTER DAYS), Louis Koo (A WITNESS OUT OF THE BLUE), Chu Pak Hong (MY PRINCE EDWARD), and Aaron Kwok (I'M LIVIN' IT).
