Cage, Kidman receive Chinese entertainment awards


MACAU (AP) — Nicolas Cage, accepting a film award in China, says he's enjoying the warmth and enthusiasm he feels while working there on a new film.

Cage was named Best Global Actor in Motion Pictures at China's Huading Awards on Monday night. Nicole Kidman, honored as best global film actress, wore a black Prada dress while she walked the red carpet in Macau alongside Hong Kong legend and pal Jackie Chan.

Cage has been shooting "Outcast" in Hong Kong with Hayden Christensen. He says: "Making a movie in China, I'm buzzing with good energy, I feel great here."

Quentin Tarantino, whose "Django Unchained" was released last year, was named Best Global Director in Motion Pictures.

The Huading Awards, established in 2007, also recognized music, dance and theater.
