Ang Lee`s `Lust, Caution` leads Taiwan `Oscars` nominations
"Lust, Caution" is nominated for 12 awards, including the coveted best director and best film, for the 44th awards to be handed out in a ceremony scheduled for December 8, AFP reported citing the organisers.
Chinese actress Tang Wei plays a resistance spy in "Lust, Caution" who slowly falls for her target, a powerful political figure played by Tong Leung, in Japanese-occupied Shanghai in the 1940s.
She is vying for the best leading actress award against film veteran Joan Chen (The Home Song Stories), Li Bingbing (The Knot) and Yu Nan (Tuya's Marriage).
Leung is up for best leading actor and faces strong competition from fellow Hong Konger Aaron Kwok (The Detective), China's Zhou Benshan (Getting Home) and Singapore's Gurmit Singh (Just Follow the Law).
