Sammi Cheng (鄭秀文) and Johnnie To (杜琪峯) attended the press conference (第十三屆亞洲電影大獎) on 11th January 2019 and announced the nomination list for the awards. She hoped Hong Kong film directors and artistes would win the awards: “I will continue to try harder. (Hope to become the winner?) I will not get it even if I wish to. I have many years of experiences and treat it as normal. (Film a high quality movie in order to get the award?) Nobody will choose to act in a poor quality film and I will shoot the movie, depending on the script.”

Sammi expressed she filmed many romantic movies in her twenties and did not mind shooting it again. When asked about her preferred opponent, Sammi replied she hoped to work with young actor and said: “Too many choices and it is good to work with Korean stars. Despite I am married, but we are allowed to look at handsome men and Korean guys are very good looking. I also look at hunks online and share it with my friends.” Sammi always felt excited upon seeing a hunk with muscular body and single eyelids.
