The first honor presented tonight, the Most Media-focused New Actress, won by Kazakh actress Dinatz Nourseiti, who became the youngest winner in the history of the Media Focus Unit of China Movie Channel, for her wonderful performance in THE COMPOSER.

Young actor Song Weilong, who won the Most Media-focused New Actor, said excitedly that "this is my first film award and will be the driving force for me to continue to bring more good works to you".

In the thunderous applause of the audience, he said: "I have been an actor for many years, but a newcomer as a film director, I will strive to be a good actor and director in the future".
It is worth mentioning that Yang Taiyi, who won the Special Honor of the Jury, is an ordinary farmer. He left a deep impression on the audience because he vividly portrayed the image of "Grandpa" in CROSSING THE BORDER-ZHAOGUAN. The jury's award words were that "he is not so much performing as he is living on the screen". When 78-year-old Yang Taiyi appeared on the stage, thunderous applause broke out at the scene, he said that "I'm a farmer, this is my first time in a movie. Thank you for giving me this honor."
Yue Yunpeng, who has always brought laughter to the public with comedy works, won the Most Media-focused Hero. He stood on the stage with mixed feelings, and wept when delivering his speech. He admitted that he had never expected to receive the honor of the film, and that he would also give back to the audience who had always supported him with a better performance.
The film and TV series brought by Wang Sulong, and SPLENDID LIFE performed by Yu Kewei and Ouyang Nana have been intoxicated by the audience, among which the most touching is the special performance of "Finding a starlight example to turn on a child's dream" brought by Summer who is a singer from Daliang Mountain in Sichuan. She said that she enjoyed the love and support from many people, and wanted to do something for the children of the hometown through the platform. "If a film is an image of the fantasy of the dream, then I hope that you can extend your hands to the children from Daliang Mountain, and become their starlight example."
