LUST, CAUTION Leads Golden Horse Nominations

Ang Lee’s controversial drama Lust, Caution has topped the list of nominees for Tiawan’s annual Golden Horse awards, earning 11 nods including those for best film, director, actor for Tony Leung and actress for newcomer Tang Wei.

Taiwanese pop star turned director Jay Chou’s debut film Secret was nominated in five categories including Best Supporting Actress for Alice Tzeng and Best Visual Effects.

Lust, Caution will be squaring off against the political satire What On Earth Have I Done Wrong?!, the dramas The Home Song Stories, Tuya’s Marriage and Getting Home for the best film trophy.
