Best Supporting Actress, Michelle Ye 'Accident'
Michelle Ye won the Best Supporting Actress award, she could not hold her tears back even before making it onstage, and embraced Director Cheng Pou Seoui of 'Accidents' by her side. When receiving her award, she recalled the hardships in the past: "I have a director friend who once told me: "Michelle, no one will want you to be their main actress!" It was so heartbreaking, but HKFA proved that be it the main actor, or supporting cast, or guest role, even if it was just a small button, screw, every single role is important." Besides thanking the on screen and behind stage crew of 'Accident' as well as producer Johnny To who insisted on having her in the movie, she too thanked her previous company for their guidance and nurturing, winning supportive applause from the entire set, even Miriam Yeung who was presenting the award could not help laughing helplessly!
Lastly, when Michelle Ye specifically thanked main lead of the movie, Louis Koo, she said: "I wish to thank my good friend Louis Koo as well, his exceptional performance helped winning much recognition for this movie, although he is not here, but I see you."
Michelle's emotion was calmer when returning backstage, she expressed she did not planned on celebration, winning the award was an 'accident' (surprise): "When first filming, a lot of people doubted me, I wish to thank Director To and Louis Koo most, it's a pity both of them are not here today, but I will remember them forever, winning an award is a big motivation for me, whatever role it is, being able to act is a happy matter."
Michelle who is 30 this year won Miss Chinese International pageant as well as 'Most Classic Beauty' in 1999, acting in several TV series, before entering the movie industry. She played crucial supporting actress in several movies, and was once nominated in HKFA Best Newcomer award in 2005.
