China Challenges Taiwanese Film Awards – AP
From Ap, via CBS News:
Hollywood star Jackie Chan won the Golden Rooster best actor award in the first year that mainland China’s prestigious film awards have tried to upstage rival Taiwan’s by opening up to ethnic Chinese actors in Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.
The Golden Rooster ceremony came a day before Taiwan’s Golden Horse Awards, considered the Chinese-speaking world’s Oscars because it includes all Chinese-language movies.
The war film “On Mt. Taihang” and Hollywood-financed “Kekexili Mountain Patrol,” a movie about saving the Tibetan antelope from ruthless poachers, shared the best film award at the ceremony in Sanya on China’s southern island of Hainan, the official Xinhua News Agency reported late Saturday.
“Kekexili Mountain Patrol” won best film at the last year’s Golden Horse Awards.
