According to Hong Kong media reports, new coronavirus pneumonia is rampant, with 16 confirmed cases in Hong Kong. The Hong Kong Golden Statue Awards held in April every year are affected by the epidemic. It was suspended earlier. Tian Qiwen, director of the board of directors of the golden statue awards, said that the ceremony would be held normally, but the scale of the ceremony would be reduced. At present, it is tentatively scheduled to be held on April 19, and the venue would be changed from the original Hong Kong Cultural Center to the Kowloon Bay International Exhibition and Trade Center (nine exhibitions).
It is reported that in order to reduce the number of people gathered, this years golden Statue Awards will only invite the awardees and winners to attend, and the red carpet walk will be cancelled. Moreover, due to the reduction of the scale of the ceremony, it can also save money to choose nine exhibitions. According to Tian Qiwen, the red carpet may be cancelled because it is inconvenient to go to the venue of the ninth exhibition. As for whether the number of guests and the date of holding the exhibition will be postponed, we need to hold another board of directors to see how the epidemic has developed. If it worsens, we need to consider whether we want to continue..
