The Cannes Jury, including Shu Qi. They will announce the winner of the Palme d'Or on Sunday, which I'll update the post with.

The 62nd Cannes Film Festival has four films competing that have directors from the Greater China region, as well as one grand jury member and a short film jury member. There was also one Chinese actress who was supposed to be making one of her first appearances in a film after five years of inactivity, but some hack named Tarantino had to make a cut and his film Inglorious Basterds will be all the lesser for the lack of Maggie Cheung, no matter what excuses he gives.

Chinese Celebrities When They Were Young

I said I would do a special fun post in exchange for someone making my banner when site hit 10,000.

Maggie Cheung and Tang Wei, both proficient in Mandarin, Cantonese and English conversed like old friends and Shu Qi who kept coughing as if she had a cold whispered to Guo Jingjing nonstop. Despite this high possibility of contracting a cold Guo Jingjing kept talking right back, and the two just kept talking incessantly.
