Chapter 1143: After some rounding off
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Although it was hard to say whether they would win the Golden Orchid Awards, Ye Wanwan was fairly confident about getting a nomination.
She watched over the entire production of this film, so she had absolute confidence in its quality.
What the committee of judges would evaluate was the quality of the script and film, not box office performance. The outcome at the box office didn’t impact the committee’s judgment at all.
Luo Chen also rejoiced in this news. This was the best news they had heard in a while.
It was only a nomination, but it was an explicit acknowledgment of their acting skills.
Gong Xu gloatingly struck a pose with his hands on his hips. “Hahaha! So what if it’s a nomination? A little rounding off, and it’s the same as me winning Best Actor! So, Brother Ye… look… how about you do some rounding off and crossdress?”
Ye Wanwan rolled her eyes at him. A little rounding off and he’ll get Best Actor? What delusional thinking!
They might’ve been nominated, but this was drastically different from actually getting Best Actor, alright?
If they didn’t get it, they would merely take a stroll on the red carpet and accompany the actual winner. They would also help the Golden Orchid Awards get a “Double Best Actor” nomination tagline.
This nomination was especially problematic for Gong Xu. If he didn’t end up winning, he would be ridiculed by the entire internet.
After their joy passed, Luo Chen said, “I dug through the records. There are a total of five times when both male leads from the same film were nominated at the same time in the history of the Golden Orchid Awards. However, there wasn’t a single time when both male leads got Best Actor. There were four times when they just participated and one time when one of the male leads won. The Best Actress Award also has a similar history…”
In other words, Double Best Actor or Double Best Actress hadn’t occurred in the history of the Golden Orchid Awards.
After all, the Golden Orchid Awards’ prestigiousness was so high; how could they easily award two Best Actors or two Best Actresses at once?
Although there were a lot of nominations, most of them were only there for the race. Moreover, the other films entering the final round with them couldn’t be underestimated. The lineup of companies, directors, producers, and artists was incredibly strong.
Only Gong Xu and Luo Chen went against the grain in the mix…
At this point in time, the nomination list for the Golden Orchid Awards was also posted on the internet.
Ye Wanwan casually skimmed through the comments. As expected, Luo Chen and Gong Xu’s co-nomination elicited quite a storm of discussion and was part of a few trending topics. Most of them were complaints though, and Gong Xu was insulted especially harshly.
[F*ck me! What did I just see? Forget about Luo Chen’s nomination, even Gong Xu was nominated as Best Actor?!]
[Gong Xu was nominated for Best Actor? This year’s Golden Orchid Awards is probably his medicine!]
[D*mn! There must be some shady dealings involved! What the h*ll is the evaluation committee for this year’s Golden Orchid Awards doing?!]
Insults and curses enveloped the internet. Everyone was calling for the evaluation committee to reassess the nominees. Now and then, fans who watched the film would speak up on Luo Chen and Gong Xu’s behalf but would be insulted until no body parts were left intact by the defamers.
A bunch of people who’d never even seen the film would madly spring forward and shred the list apart simply because of the name “Gong Xu.”
Ye Wanwan’s lips twitched. Gong Xu’s ability to attract haters was as formidable as always.
Ye Wanwan rubbed her forehead. “Why are you so good at attracting haters?”
Gong Xu had a boastful expression. “Of course! No one in the entertainment industry can compare to this young master’s ability to attract haters!”
Ye Wanwan said, “I’m not complimenting you!!!”
Then Ye Wanwan’s phone rang. It was Ye Mufan calling.
Ye Wanwan walked some distance away before taking the call. “Hello? Brother?”
Ye Mufan asked, “The final list came out. Did you see it?”
“I saw it.”
