The Warner Music artist took out best male artist (China), best video (China) for "Colorful Days" and best song (China) for "Colorful Days."

Pu's labelmate Zhou Xun won best newcomer. Warner Taiwan divas Chang Hui-mei and Sun Yanzi each grabbed two awards, with Chang taking home best female singer for 2003 (Hong Kong/Taiwan).

Sony music artist Jay Chou won best song (Hong Kong/Taiwan) and best video (Hong Kong/Taiwan), while labelmate Wang Lee Hom was named best male artist for 2003 (Hong Kong/Taiwan).

For the second consecutive year, domestic China label Crystal Records' Han Hong won best female singer (China). Taiwan's Rock Records band Mayday also repeated as best group (Hong Kong/China).

Surprisingly, Hong Kong artists were completely shut out of the top awards, a first in the awards show's history.

The awards were co-produced by Channel V, China Central Television (CCTV) and Shanghai Media Group (SMG). Votes were cast by fans via SMS mobile-phone text messaging, e-mail and fax. The program will premiere Jan. 18 on Channel V at 9 p.m. local time.
