It's not often that an actor gets nominated or wins an award for a sequel, but Chinese actress Tang Wei has just been nominated for Book of Love, the sequel to the movie Finding Mr. Right. If she wins, it will be a feather in the cap for the actress who rose to fame in Lust, Caution, directed by the famous director Ang Lee. There is another surprising record that she is setting with this nomination.

Since 2008, Tang Wei has been nominated 6 times for Best Actress by the Hong Kong Film Awards. She was previously nominated for Finding HennessyLate AutumnFinding Mr. Right, The Golden Era, and A Tale of Three Cities. Although she has won best actress at many film awards, she has not been bestowed with the same honor at the Hong Kong Film Awards. 

There is strong competition again this time.

Zhou Dongyu and Ma Sichun are also nominated in the Best Actress category for their roles in Soul Mate. The two actresses have just made history for jointly winning the Best Actress award at the 2016 Golden Horse Awards held in Taipei. Soul Mate has a total of 12 nominations at the Hong Kong Film Awards.

Also in the running are veteran actress Nina Paw, for Show Me Your Love, and Kara Wai, for Happiness.

Will 6 times be the charm for Tang Wei?
