Hong Kong Film Awards 2012: winners back for more

The 31st Hong Kong Film Awards ran Sunday, bringing to a close the annual Entertainment Expo and re-awarding several locals who won at the earlier Expo event, the Asian Film Awards.

Local hit and festival favourite A Simple Life took five wins from eight nominations, Best Picture, Director, Actor,  Actress and Screenplay. Flying Swords of Dragon Gate also took five wins, all in the technical categories. Wu Xia took two technical wards.
