The 35th Hong Kong Film Awards presentation ceremony took place in Hong Kong Cultural Centre on 3 April 2016. The host of the awards ceremony was Sean Lau.[1] Due to the fact that the dystopian film Ten Years, seen to be critical of China's influence over Hong Kong, was nominated for best picture in the awards, the state-owned China Central Television did not air the program as it had previously for every year since 1991. The Chinese government was reported to have ordered the state broadcaster not to broadcast the ceremony.[2]

The Hong Kong Film Awards announced 21 film awards in all, but there were only 20 according to reports in the mainland Chinese news media.[4] Major mainland news websites, including Sina and Tencent, which covered the awards ceremony on 3 April 2016 neglected to mention the winner of best picture, considered one of Asia's top film awards.[5][6] In mainland Chinese cities where TVB, the main Hong Kong television channel, is aired, users on social media reported that the programme was blacked out and replaced with a cooking programme.[4]
