Gay love story
garners four noms in Chinese-language "Oscars"

Peter Chan's musical movie Perhaps Love racked up the most nominations in the 43rd Golden Horse Awards--the Chinese-speaking world's Oscars--but the gay love story Eternal Summer garnered four nominations when the short list was announced late Monday. Chan's Perhaps Love, starring Zhou Xun, Takeshi Kaneshiro, and Jacky Cheung, is up for 12 prizes. The bulk of them are technical awards, but the movie is also in contention for best film, best director for Chan, and best actress for China's Zhou, who has already dominated the Hong Kong movie awards circuit this year with her performance as a movie star caught between past and present loves. For Eternal Summer, rising Taiwanese director Leste Chen's subtly shot gay love story, lead actors Joseph Chang and Bryant Chang are both vying for best new performer, and Joseph Chang is also on the short list for best supporting actor. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan, on November 25. (Min Lee, AP)
