Hundreds of local and overseas fans swarmed the entrance to the Cultural Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui on Sunday, the biggest night in the city’s film industry calendar, hoping to catch a glimpse of their favourite stars on the red carpet.

Organisers of Hong Kong’s equivalent of the Oscars were hoping to see less political tension this year, after their live broadcasts of the past two events were partially censored in mainland China over films deemed sensitive.

 , went home with only best screenplay after securing nine nominations.

But it was all smiles for Koo, who was presented the best actor trophy by Indian superstar Aamir Khan for his performance in Paradox. “I have been thinking how we can all make Hong Kong film thrive,” Koo said in a heartfelt speech. “Hongkongers must be united … the industry needs your support.”

Also a first-time winner, Mo shed tears as she walked onto the stage to receive the top actress award for the first time. The 57-year-old, who has starred in numerous comedies, played the mother of an autistic and mentally handicapped teenager in Tomorrow is Another Day.

The awards this year were broadcast live – with simultaneous English translation – to audiences in 30 territories around the world, including a number of South American countries.
