Nicolas Cage - Nicolas Cage And Nicole Kidman Pick Up Top Acting Prizes In China

Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman were honoured in China on Monday night (07Oct13) at the annual Huading Awards.

Cage was handed the Best Global Actor prize while Kidman was named Best Global Actress.

The Leaving Las Vegas star is currently shooting new movie Outcast in China, and heaped praise on his host country, stating, "I believe in the genius loci of a place, the genie of the place is what I call it. I absorb that energy and it affects performance wherever I go.

"Making a movie in China, I'm buzzing with good energy, I feel great here. I love the people I'm working with, I love the crew, and there's a genuine warmth and enthusiasm that I get from my conversations."

Quentin Tarantino was handed the prize for Best Global Director, and revealed Asian cinema has inspired his work throughout his career: "I've been a fan of Asian cinema my whole life growing up. I did my movie Kill Bill as a complete tribute to my love for it and so to come here amongst the Chinese film industry (and) get this from the Chinese fans is a dream come true."

Meanwhile, Sam Worthington was presented the award for Best Global Action Actor, and Avril Lavigne was named Best Global Singer.

The ceremony will head to Los Angeles next year (14).
