March 18, 2008|From the Associated Press

Tony Leung Chiu-wai won the best actor award Monday at the second Asian Film Awards in Hong Kong for his performance in the Ang Lee spy thriller "Lust, Caution."

The big winner, however, was "Secret Sunshine," the South Korean story of a widow's mental breakdown, which captured awards as best movie, best director for Lee Chang-dong and best actress for Jeon Do-yeon. The role earlier earned Jeon acting honors at the Cannes Film Festival.

Best supporting actress went to veteran Joan Chen for "The Sun Also Rises," and China's Sun Hong-lei won best supporting actor for "Mongol."

The Asian Film Awards is organized by the Hong Kong International Film Festival.
