By online voters:

Most popular film: Perhaps Love
Most popular actor: Andy LAU
Most popular actress: Angelica LEE

Perhaps Love got most of the love (it's not surprising it got best art direction, best film score - even if I thought it was hard for my ears), but Isabella and Election 2 were better and more interesting I thought. And Chapman To deserved the Best Actor award for Isabella. Some of the nominated films are quite old (from last year or so, such as Election, 2 Young, Initial D...), this makes sometimes the category quite strange (such as having Election 1 et 2 together selected in one category).
