A few events took place over the weekend, so I figured I’d cover the winners in categories related to martial arts films. We’ll start with the Hong Kong Film Awards, as they were the bigger event of the two. While A Simple Life won most of the awards, Wu Xia and Flying Swords of Dragon Gate did win a few awards.
Flying Swords of Dragon Gate:
Best Editing, Best Art Direction, Best Action Choreography, Best Sound Design and Best Visual Effects.
Best Cinematography and Best Original Film Score
ActionFest also took place over the weekend, and they gave out their own fair share of awards as well:
Lifetime Achievement Award: Mickey Gilbert

Chick Norris, Best Female Action Star: Gina Carano
Best Director(s): Alan Mak and Felix Chong, The Lost Bladesman
Best Action Scene: The Lost Bladesman
Fight Director of the Year: J. J. Perry

Congrats to all the winners!
