TAIPEI, TAIWAN
A second Academy Award for best director has thrust Taiwan native Ang Lee into the top ranks of world filmmakers and made him a national hero on this diplomatically isolated island.

 

 

 

Lee's victory at Hollywood's annual Oscar extravaganza on Sunday for the fantasy epic "Life of Pi" followed his 2005 win for "Brokeback Mountain." Garnering additional awards for visual effects, cinematography and original score, "Life of Pi" pulled down four Oscars, the most of any film this year.

 

 

 

News of Lee's triumph electrified Taiwanese, many of whom watched a live broadcast early Monday. It was not only the surprise nature of the directorial award — "Lincoln" director Steven Spielberg was considered the category's clear frontrunner — but the intense pride they felt at a native son making it big in the world at large.

Since losing most of its diplomatic allies to China in the 1970s and 1980s — the two sides split in a civil war more than six decades ago — Taiwan has been on the outer fringes of the international community. It is now recognized by only 23 countries — mostly impoverished and devoid of influence — and outside of information technology circles, its global footprint is small.

 

 

 

Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou saw Lee's triumph as at least a temporary reversal of those fortunes, thanking Lee for "pushing Taiwan toward the world."

"Taiwanese are proud of you," Ma said in a congratulatory message.

 

 

 

Making Lee's Oscar win even sweeter was Taiwan's key role in the production of "Life of Pi," which tells the story of a shipwrecked Indian boy sharing his small boat with a ferocious tiger. A majority of the film was shot at a specially constructed water tank in the central city of Taichung, and Taiwanese took many of the most important jobs in seeing the film to completion.

 

 

 

Taiwanese production team member Mike Yang said Lee had the total devotion of the Taichung crew.

 

 

 

"If he wanted us to make the wave bigger or the movement of the animated tiger more detailed, we were willing to cooperate, and not because he was Ang Lee but because he commanded respect," Yang said.

 

 

 

Born in the southern Taiwanese city of Pingtung in 1954, Lee went to the U.S. in 1979 to study filmmaking at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. He burst into international prominence with "Sense and Sensibility" in 1995 and was nominated for best director for "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," which won the 2001 Oscar for best foreign language film.

 

 

 

Taiwan's film industry has been in the doldrums for more than two decades. Once seen as a world trendsetter for its subtle presentation of human interactions, it now languishes well behind other Asian cinemas, including those in South Korea and Hong Kong.

 

 

 

Lee also has a strong following in China, which claims Taiwan as part of its territory, and Chinese movie critic Meng Yuankai congratulated Lee on his win. "It's pride for the ethnic Chinese group. Can't wait for the next production," he said in his Sina Weibo account.

「台灣之光」李安昨以《少年PI的奇幻漂流》(Life of Pi)再奪奧斯卡最佳導演殊榮,好萊塢名導史蒂芬史匹柏2度成他手下敗將。該片並獲最佳攝影、最佳配樂、最佳視覺特效,獨得4獎成大贏家,他上台致詞眼眶泛淚感謝台灣,在台北看轉播的李安媽媽開心說:「李安和惠嘉(李安太太)2人這輩子也算對國家有點貢獻了。」

 

 

 


第85屆奧斯卡金像獎頒獎典禮於台灣時間昨上午在洛杉磯舉行,李安是否能繼2006年的《斷背山》後再奪導演獎,全台矚目。該獎項昨由資深影星麥克道格拉斯及珍芳達頒發,當念出「Ang Lee(李安)」,李安露出不可置信的表情,包括對手史匹柏等全場起立鼓掌。台北101大樓昨晚8點半至11點半亮燈「李安讚台灣讚」,慶祝李安得獎。

 

 


他在台上閃著淚光、手指上天說:「感謝電影之神,也感謝每一位工作人員,謝謝你們和我共享這趟奇妙旅程。」他不忘感謝同胞:「感謝台灣,沒有台灣,這部片拍不成,特別要感謝台中市的協助。」他上次得獎沒提老婆,這回不但道謝,還大聲說:「我愛妳!」男主角蘇瑞吉沙瑪看到恩師得獎,狂叫飆淚。

 

 

 


再擊敗史匹柏

 


李安7年前以《斷背山》打敗史匹柏的《慕尼黑》,首獲奧斯卡最佳導演,這次史匹柏以《林肯》再與李安狹路相逢,事前史匹柏呼聲高,沒想到出現驚喜。李安昨會後受訪表示:「你不曉得票會跑到哪裡去,史匹柏名氣比較大,但我聽很多人說,票都往我這邊跑,所以我也沒那麼驚訝。只是上去拿獎看到全體起立鼓掌的熱情,讓我很感動。」

 

 


李媽媽也感動說:「有時候心疼他壓力大,這麼辛苦就不要做了,但他一直堅持。」稍後她接到親家母的恭賀電話,開心回應:「互相恭喜啦,李安和惠嘉2人這輩子也算對國家有點貢獻了,很多歐洲小國家,因為電影知道台灣在哪裡。」合作過《色,戒》的梁朝偉昨讚賞:「恭喜!這是讓觀眾看完會思考的電影,很替李安開心。」

 

 


李安會後舉行記者會表示:「拿這獎(最佳導演)也算是對所有工作人員的肯定。其實奧斯卡屬於人氣的獎,尤其以洛杉磯(影藝學院會員)為主,大概我在這裡也有一些人緣了吧。」

 

 

 


安與老婆林惠嘉今夏將迎接結婚30周年,他小聲笑說:「我很愛我老婆。」大家拱他「大聲一點」,他說:「我們不會甜言蜜語啦,但她是我的精神支柱。」問李太太是否希望小孩向老公看齊?她表示:「我只告訴他們認真做自己喜歡的事,就算掃廁所也要掃得很乾淨。」至於老公,她酷酷地說:「他家的事,我又不是他媽!」奪金是30周年的最佳禮物嗎?「都30年還需要給禮物的話,不是代表婚姻有問題嗎?他只要做自己就好。」
李安前年帶好萊塢團隊回台灣拍《少》片,鄉親力挺,全台賣座5.3億元台幣,全球更大賣175億元台幣。李安是影史第15位2奪小金人的導演,得獎數排名第4,僅次於4獲導演獎的約翰福特、3座的威廉惠勒與法蘭克卡普拉。
