The 24th Hong Kong Film Awards and Omini TV

Omini TV decided to move their schedule around and in inserted the 24th Hong Kong Film Awards from March 27th, 2005 (in Hong Kong). I guess they didn’t think they could get it? or that no one known’s what “schedule in advance” means? Silly Rabbits. Anyway….

Kung Fu Hustle (which had it’s World premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), and comes out in Northern America later this month), and 2046 won big time, for good reasons, although the other nominations are very worth checking into.
