Prizes at Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards, awarded for the year's best best Chinese language films, were roughly split between Wong Kar-wai's "The Grandmaster" and Singaporean first time director Anthony Chen's "Ilo Ilo." But "Ilo Ilo" top the top honors.

"Ilo Ilo," about a Filipino maid's awkward relationship with her employers during the Asiam Financial Crisis, was named best film, and earned Chen best script and best new director awards, while Yeo Yann Yann was named best supporting actress.

"Ilo Ilo" won the Camera d'Or in Cannes in May and is selected as Singapore's entry to the foreign language Oscars category.

"Grandmaster" claimed five awards, four in craft categories, and one more for Zhang Ziyi as best actress.

Taiwan's "Stray Dogs" won two significant prizes in best director for Tsai Ming-liang and best actor for Lee Kang sheng.
