Nick Cheung may have won Best Actor -- but it was Tony Leung who proved he was the real class act.

Tony was seen immediately congratulating Nick as soon as his name was announced, which drew applause from the audience.

Meanwhile, Nick Cheung looked a million dollars as he celebrated his win on stage in grand style.

Elsewhere on the winner's list however, it was all about The Grandmasters.

The Grandmasters picked up a whopping 12 awards out of 14 nominations to become the big winner at the 33rd Hong Kong Film Awards last night.

The film broke the record of 9 awards previously set by Comrades Almost a Love Story and Cold War.

Zhang Ziyi also won her 9th Best Actress while Nick Cheung Ka Fai took Best Actor with Unbeatable. 

This is Zhang Ziyi's ninth Best Actress win overall and her Hong Kong Film Award Best Actress, and she became highly emotional while accepting the award.
