Worth to mention is that Lust, Caution with 11 nominations becomes the most nominated film; Tuya’s Marriage has 4 nominations in major categories, and Spider Lillies has one nomination for Best Original Song. Have to share with you that I haven’t been able to find any information about the movie “What on Earth have I Done Wrong?!”, except that the movie director is Niu Chen-zer and that is a political satire. This totally puzzles me!
