Considered to be China's top film event (the country's equivalent of Oscars), the annual China Golden Rooster Awards (named for the year of the Rooster) were handed out late last month at the Golden Rooster & Hundred Flowers Film Festival, as I just learned, and a film we've previously covered on S&A picked up a trophy in a major category!

Feels like we're seeing a lot of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson lately, both on screen and in print/pixels; like maybe he needs to take a short break.
