Veteran actor Patrick Tse gets first nomination at Hong Kong Film Awards

HONG KONG – Hong Kong veteran actor Patrick Tse, who has been in the entertainment industry for almost 70 years, has received his first nomination at the Hong Kong Film Awards (HKFA) for Best Actor.

Tse, 85, was nominated for his role as a retired assassin in the black comedy Time, which also starred fellow veteran actress Petrina Fung Bo Bo, actor Lam Suet and former radio DJ Chung Suet Ying.

Lam, 57, was nominated for Best Supporting Actor, while Chung, 27, was nominated for Best Supporting Actress and Best New Performer.

In an interview with the Hong Kong media, Tse said that there was no HKFA when he joined the industry in 1953. The awards were founded in 1982.

“I had cut down on my acting commitments when the awards were founded,” said the actor known affectionately as Sei Kor or “fourth brother” in Hong Kong show business.

“I thought my acting career had reached ‘lifetime” status when I received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the HKFA three years ago,” he added.

Hong Kong actor Gordon Lam, the producer and co-screenwriter of Time, received two Best Actor nominations – for his roles as a former soldier in crime thriller Hand Rolled Cigarette and a policeman in the crime thriller Limbo.
