Below is a complete list of winners and nominees for the 26th Hong Kong Film Awards, which includes twenty-six winners and over a hundred nominees in nineteen categories. Besides the regular categories, two special awards were given out this year, namely the Century Achievement Award (to Run Run Shaw) and the Professional Achievement Award (to Man Yun Ling). The year's biggest winner turned out to be After This Our Exile, which won three major awards in Best Film, Best Director, and Best Screenplay. Its young actor Ian Iskandar also clinched the win for Best Supporting Actor and Best New Performer.
In the Best Asian Film category, nominee Still Life (China) was withdrawn as it failed to meet the election criteria, which stipulate that nominees for the category must be released by means of 35 mm film. The vacancy was filled by I Not Stupid Too (Singapore).
The Century Achievement Award was an award presented at the 26th Hong Kong Film Awards to entertainment mogul Sir Run Run Shaw for his 80 years of contributions to the film industry.
