Eye Of The Storm has nods for best narrative feature, best leading actor (Wang Po-chieh), best cinematography, best visual effects, best art direction, best original film score, best film editing and best sound effects.
Four films racked up seven nods apiece – Wong Ching-po’s The Pig, The Snake And The Pigeon and Hsiao Ya-chuan’s Old Fox, which were both nominated for best director, as well as Taiwan’s Trouble Girl and Malaysia’s Abang Adik. Stonewalling, co-directed by Ji Huang and Ryûji Otsuka, and Hong Kong director Nick Cheuk’s Time Still Turns The Pages round out the best narrative feature category.
Taiwan’s Golden Horse Awards have long been recognised as the most prestigious awards ceremony for Chinese-language cinema, but have been boycotted by mainland China since 2018 when a documentary award winner made a reference to Taiwan’s independence during her acceptance speech.
This year’s awards are scheduled to take place on November 25 at the Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei City.
As previously announced, Ang Lee has been named president of this year’s Golden Horse Awards jury. The award for Outstanding Taiwanese Filmmaker of the Year will be presented to producer Lin Shih-ken (The Bold, The Corrupt, And The Beautiful) while Lifetime Achievement Awards will go to Brigitte Lin and Chen Kun-hou.
