Christopher Lee is now a two-time Best Actor winner at the Golden Bell Awards, which is often referred to as Taiwan's answer to the Emmys.

The 50-year-old bagged the Best Actor in a Mini-series or Television Film award at the ceremony on Saturday (Oct 2) for his role in the HBO Asia drama Workers.

Chris' first Golden Bell win came in 2014, when he won the Best Actor In A Drama Series award for his role in the family drama, A Good Wife.

Unlike his first win, Chris couldn't be at the ceremony in person.

Instead, he attended the event virtually from a suite in the Marina Bay Sands hotel here in Singapore.

However, rest assured — the actor wasn’t under quarantine or anything. He was there for a staycation with his wife, Fann Wong, 50, and their seven-year-old son, Zed.

In his awards acceptance speech, Chris thanked Fann for her “dedication and unconditional support”.

I want to thank my wife, Fann, and my son, Zed. In particular, I'm really thankful to my wife. It is because of your dedication and your unconditional support that I feel at ease acting and filming dramas [away from home],” he said.

Even before the awards ceremony started, Fann had already posted a quick snap of their family-of-three on her Instagram, with this sweet caption: “Good luck my dear. [You are] already our winner for tonight”, along with a number of heart emojis.

His big win definitely put a celebratory spin on their staycation.

The day after his win, Fann took to her IG Story to share a video of them tucking into a sumptuous breakfast spread in their room to celebrate. And that’s not all.

Later that day, when the family returned to their room after a dip in the pool, Fann's IG Story revealed that the Marina Bay Sands staff had prepared a surprise for the family by decking out their room in black and gold balloons.

Apart from Chris’ Best Actor win, Workers also won the Best Mini-series Award.

Chris' co-star Taiwanese actor Simon Hsueh, 38, won the Best Supporting Actor in a Mini-series or Television Film category for his role in the drama.
