UPI News Service, 11/13/2005
Hong Kong action star Jackie Chan took the Chinese Golden Rooster Best Actor Award in Hainan Sunday for his role in "New Police Story."
Organizers of China's most prestigious film awards opened the competition this year to Chinese actors from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan -- to rival the Taiwanese Golden Horse Awards given out the same night in Keelung, Taiwan, the BBC reported.
In honoring Chan, the Rooster jury praised the actor for "representing the righteousness and dignity of the Chinese."
The best actress award was given to Jing Yaqin for the film "You and Me," which also garnered the best director win for Ma Liwen.
The Golden Rooster for best film was shared by "On Mount Taihang" and Hollywood-backed "Kekexili Mountain Patrol."
