27 Jan – Despite his nomination for the 2014 Golden Broom Awards' Most Disappointing Actor, Donnie Yen stated that he is not at all demotivated by it.

As reported on Mingpao, while speaking to the media at the launch of a Cultural Communication mobile phone game, "Dragon Tiger Gate Mahjong" with Eric Tsang, Donnie admitted that he read about his nominations at the award, which is China's equivalent to the Hollywood's Razzie Awards.

However, the actor stated that he will take the nomination with a positive stride.

"People have been paying more attention to me these past few years," said Donnie, who was nominated for his roles in "Special Identity" and "Together". "I will accept it with good intentions, since an actor has the responsibility to accept them."

Speaking about the two movies which he was nominated for, Donnie said, "I was only a guest star in "Together", but I still got nominated for it! And for "Special Identity", filming it was difficult (due to the conflict with Vincent Zhao)."

However, Donnie said the nominations have taught him to be more careful in picking movies and to improve his performance.

"I will turn all the negativity and criticisms into motivations and make better movies in the future," said Donnie.
