The Hong Kong Film Award for Best Actor is an annual Hong Kong industry award presented to an actor for the best performance by an actor in a leading role.

History

The award was established at the 1st Hong Kong Film Awards (1982) and the first winner and the sole participant in this category was Michael Hui for his role in the film Security Unlimited. From the 2nd Hong Kong Film Awards (1983), there are 5, sometimes 6, nominations for the category of Best Actor from which one actor is chosen the winner of the Hong Kong Film Award for Best Actor, except the 2nd Awards when Sammo Hung and Karl Maka shared the award. The most recent recipient of the award was Andy Lau, who was honoured at the 31st Hong Kong Film Awards (2012), for his performance in A Simple Life.

The actor with most awards in this category is Tony Leung Chiu-Wai with 5 times, followed by Tony Leung Ka-fai with 4 times and Andy Lau and Chow Yun-fat with 3 times each. Jackie Chan is holding the record for actor with most nominations without ever winning, until the 24th Hong Kong Film Awards (2005) he was nominated 10 times without a single award.
