as 4 vicki losing out in the golden horse twice..well, it depends on which roles she submitted cuz i have to admit, some of her roles i don't think were good.
While we're on the subject of that...not only do we have to consider her roles, but also her movies...if you look back at her list of movies, from 2003 onwards, much (if not all) of her roles were in mainland 'artistic' movies; ones which seem "low-budgeted" or they just don't appeal to the public, and I don't think it's easy for those sorts of movies to get into a prestigious award like the Golden Horse, unless they're big-budgeted films which draw a lot of attention and interest. I don't think any of Vicki's 'artistic' movies ever made it into the Golden Horse (if so, then it's 'rare'), but they so easily did in a whole bunch of local/mainland awards, that's why it seems so easy for her to win in local awards, but so difficult in more prestigious awards which accepts productions from a broader range of places. So Vicki's choice of roles and films also impacts greatly on her credentials and awards...it seems Vicki's choice of movies is limited; she only accepts roles in 'artistic' movies mainly from the mainland, the only time she accepts roles in other productions is when an interesting role lands on her lap.
But FBB in comparison seems to accept a more broader range of roles in various different productions, so her chances in getting into awards outside the mainland are greater than Vicki's. The difference between them is vast, it shows just how different their choice of roles and scripts are, so we shouldn't compare these 2.
With her new role in John Woo's big-budgeted epic 'Red Cliff'; Vicki stands a great chance in securing a position in the Golden Horse once again. John has praised her great acting skills that he even mortified the script several times and has extended Vicki's role in the movie...so there's a big chance she'll be able to make it into the Golden Horse again.
But I agree with linda that awards are not important, they're just trophies...winners and nominees are only decided based on opinions of a small panel of judges, or for some "less important" awards, winners are decided by polls voted by the public. Like linda pointed out, there's really NO truth to these awards at all, they don't prove anything when it comes to the artists' overall talents and performance, because they're all based on opinions, and everyone has different opinions after all.
