The Golden Horse, Taiwan’s equivalent of the Oscars, honours the best in Asian cinema over the past year. It was held at the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei.
Taiwanese actress Shu Qi, 40, one of the guest presenters of the night, was teased endlessly by event host Matilda Tao.
Tao sent the audience into a frenzy when she said: “I really have to thank Shu Qi for coming here. Furthermore, she is wearing high heels.
“Is this hint obvious enough? I’ll leave the media to make their guesses. Anyway, if she doesn’t admit or deny, the speculation can go on for another three months.”
Taos’ remarks seemed to suggest that Shu, who had announced her marriage to Hong Kong actor Stephen Fung in September, is pregnant with her first child.
Chinese couples consider it unlucky to announce a pregnancy till after the first trimester.
Shu appeared surprised at Tao’s spontaneous ribbing. Later, Shu’s manager told reporters backstage that she is “not pregnant”, insisting that “the two ladies were just joking around”.
Chinese star Fan Bingbing, 35, who was in an elegant Elie Saab blue gown, took the opportunity to send her belated thanks to the Golden Horse Awards organising committee for handing her the Best Supporting Actress accolade in 2006, in recognition of her performance in horror flick The Matrimony.
