(Will you increase your fee?) I've already added, but I could increase again after winning this award. (Which movie satisfy you the most?) Love On a Diet."



After Sandra had finished her winning speech and walk down the stage, Andy and Simon immediately went forward to the alleged pregnant Sandra, however she missed her step at the last flight of stairs, those present were shocked.

For the male singer, Andy asked everybody if they had problems with "Andy Lau"? When everybody had no objections, he quipped: "Rightfully winner!" He picked Grasshopper for the pop group award but when it comes to the best hit song award, he chose not to pick a winner as he feel that every nominated song is nice.

Measnwhile, Andy was announced to be leading for the World Hit Singer award and he was leading the second spot by some 30% of more votes.



It was said that Andy was experiencing double happiness as other than leading in the music awards, he also just released his new album, this twin-CD album include 13 new and unreleased songs, among them is 'Tai Xiang Ai' which is his first banned song and he specially arranged a dance to be perform for the song at his December 15 mini-concert.



As Andy had a total box-office collection of HK$1,733,275,816.00, when asked what's his achievement for his singing? He expressed that he didn't calculate the total sales figure of his albums but he had released at least 100 albums. When asked what hope he had for his new album? He exclaimed that the music industry was suffering a downturn, his album being a twin-CD, he hope to have a double sales figure of a single CD album and he's confidence of it.



With regards to awards, he's most confidence of winning the Most Admired Hit Song award but having confidence doesn't mind winning. Furthermore, he could only sigh with his unability to attend the award presentation ceremony due to work committments which might cost him the award.
