Many of its films have won awards, such as the Golden Horse Awards from Taiwan, where child actress Megan Zheng won the Best Newcomer Award for her performance in Homerun. In 1998, the Singapore movie industry produces the first highly successful movie Money No Enough, where the film received mixed reviews from critics, but earned over S$5.8 million and was the all-time highest-grossing Singaporean film until 2012. This results its success which helped revive the Singaporean film industry and paved the way of future Singaporean local movies. In 2002, Singaporean satirical film I Not Stupid held the top position at the weekend box office chart in Singapore. It was later released in other countries such as Malaysia, Hong Kong and China.
