After missing out on two of six categories in which Singapore film Ilo Ilo has been nominated at the Golden Horse Awards, actress Yeo Yann Yann, 36, wins Best Supporting Actress for her role in the film.

Looking elegant in a black toga gown, she choked back tears as she accepted the trophy on stage at the prestigious awards in Taipei, dubbed the Oscars of Chinese-language cinema.

Pointing to the trophy in her hand, she exclaimed: "This is real."

She added: "To be able to come and participate in the Golden Horse Awards is a fantasy journey for me, and I really want to thank director Anthony Chen, and the rest of the Ilo Ilo family... I hope that I can continue this fantasy journey."
