CRAZY RICH ASIANS
Directed by Jon M. Chu and adapted from the 2013 novel of the same name by Kevin Kwan, the film became the highest grossing American romantic comedy in a decade. The film is also recognised as the first major Hollywood studio feature to be made up of a majority cast of Asian actors in a modern day setting since 1993, with Constance Wu and Henry Golding leading the ensemble.
Accolades for the movie notably include Golden Globe Awards earning nominations for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical. It also received four nominations at the 24th Critics' Choice Awards, winning one for Best Comedy, and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture at the 25th Screen Actors Guild Awards.
The hit movie has been rated 7.6 out of 10 on the popular movie review website IMDB, and an approval rating of 91% on Rotten Tomatoes. Following these successes along with a box office gross of 238 million dollars worldwide, two sequels are currently in development. The film is a shining example of cultural diversity blazing the trail for new opportunities in Hollywood.
It gives us great pleasure to honour cast and crew of this ground breaking film, with the award for Outstanding Achievement in Cinema.
