Event insiders say Nicole Kidman also landed in Macau this morning and will make a turn on the red carpet. Hong Kong auteur Wong Kar Wai and Jackie Chan will be representing the Chinese industry, as willBooboo Stewart (Twilight, X-Men) and other upcoming Asian stars. Established in 2007 by Beijing-based media company Global Talents Media Group, the Huading Awards are held several times throughout the year at various Chinese destinations, feting stars in all fields. Veteran live-show producer Don Mischer — producer or director of numerous Academy Award shows, Olympics opening ceremonies, and Super Bowl halftime shows, along with the latest Obama inauguration — signed on in July to consult on a revamp of the event. Various Chinese events — such as the Golden Rooster Awards, the Shanghai Film Festival’s Golden Goblet Awards, and Beijing’s TiantianAwards — are vying for dominance in the live awards space, as the Chinese industry looks to offer its own alternative to the Oscars. STORY: China’s Golden Rooster Awards: ‘American Dreams in China,’ ‘Back to 1942’ Take Top Honors One of Hollywoods most experienced producers of televised gala events, Mischer said in July that it was the creative freedom of the project that attracted him: Most television has become kind of bottom-line business, where it’s profits and commercials that make the difference. Now I have an opportunity to work on a project I can take real pride in. The surprise attendance of top Hollywood names such as Cage, Kidman and Tarantino comes just weeks after industry A-listers Leonardo DiCaprio, Nicole Kidman and Harvey Weinstein, among others, turned out in force at a surprise event in the eastern Chinese city of Qingdao , where the countrys leading property and cinema developer Wanda Group announced it would be investing $8.2 billion to build a world-class film studio and entertainment complex. As Mischer said as he was gearing up to work on the Huading Awards, Everyone — movie stars and musical artists — in L.A. that I work with wants to establish a connection with their fans in China. He also added that after the Macau event, he plans to collaborate with Global Talents to bring the Huading show to Los Angeles in May 2014.

After a quarter century covering the film business and speaking directly to the industry from my house in the sticks of Long Island, I am taking the Hollywood plunge. I will spend half of each month in Los Angeles beginning November. The hope is to take as much ground as I can for Deadline Hollywood and help it continue to evolve. The tone and the urgency and irreverence of this site will always be trademarks of Nikki Finke (when I try to write with attitude like she does, I often hear in my head that Bob Seger lyric, All of Chucks children are out there playing his licks), but I am eager to see how I can do it better. I think Deadline is thriving despite a recent batch of articles implying otherwise, and it pisses me off when journalists cheap shot us (I disagree with New York Times reporter Brooks Barnes and his assessment that Deadline has grown bland. The only thing that concerns me is Barnes could teach a master class on how to write blandly, so hes as close to an authority as youll find on the subject). People often ask how I managed to get away with covering Hollywood on an inside-baseball level from so far away. It just sort of happened and luckily for me, most people were unaware I was doing it. It started when I was a gossip reporter at New York Newsday and heard that a movie about the guys who created Woodstock fell apart because its stars Ralph Macchio and Emilio Estevez couldnt agree whose name should go first. I tracked down the producer, Peter Bart, who listened to my version, paused, and said, that is absolutely true. I didnt know who he was, but I made sure we had a nice chat every time I discovered a Hollywood story. It was only when he took the Weekly Variety job that I learned about his exploits as a journalist and a studio exec who played an integral role in my favorite film The Godfather. For a Long Island-raised wannabe journalist, working at Newsday seemed like the dream, but it wasnt. I grew up there alongside tabloid giants like Mike McAlary, Jim Dwyer, Peter King, Murray Kempton and Jimmy Breslin, but as the gossip guy I was eyed as the man only when the task was revealing a romantic breakup or chronicling a fist fight at a party.
