Nominees- Best Actress


There's always tougher competition between the ladies in HK. There's more of us. It seems like there are less roles to go around and all the ladies in town are super talented. This year in particular we had a great number of plays with outstanding roles for women. I mean, let's just name off a couple of them: Lady Macbeth, Hedda Gabler, King Lear... The women nominated in this category are the cream of Hong Kong's very talented acting crop.
