Once she took her seat, the senior starlet glanced sideways at the rookie actress and flashed her a contemptuous smile before turning to look straight ahead with seemingly no respect for the latter .
“How gorgeous she looks . She’s just as splendid as a proud peacock . ”
It was a heartfelt compliment from Yun Shishi .
Her manager scoffed . “Gorgeous? Don’t be fooled by her appearance . Give her a basin of makeup remover, and you’ll find an old, rural woman . Could she even be your match if you were to apply that sort of makeup now, too?”
His reply rendered the artist speechless . “…”
Having a highly sensitive hearing, Han Yuyan’s ears pricked and heard what the star agent had said about her .
He did not hide from her, either . In fact, his comments were perhaps deliberately directed at her .
What the veteran heard made her seethe in rage . Is Qin Zhou out to embarrass me with his savageness?
Alas, there was nothing she could do about it, given the status he held . No amount of glory could give her the guts to make an enemy out of him .
She barely managed to keep herself and her anger in check as she clenched her fists tightly enough for her sharp nails to puncture her flesh . Following which, the actress plastered an elegant smile on her face and feigned ignorance as she stared straight ahead like a proud queen .
After the long, torturous rehearsal, the awards ceremony was finally underway at eight o’clock in the evening .
Yang Mi and Li Jiuxian were the emcees of this event .
According to the top manager, the superstar and Han Yuyan were set to be the emcees of this film festival . However, along with the banning of the superstar, the name list of the emcees changed, too . It just so happened that Huanyu was actively pushing and supporting the pair on stage . The two had co-starred in a popular TV series, which was enjoying high ratings at present .
The hosting duo of this ceremony usually comprised a male and a female, though of course, there was also the occasional combination of two male celebs .
Alas, these two visually attractive emcees seemed to be of insufficient standing in the industry, considering the impressive cast lineup—Han Yuyan had graced the event with her attendance, after all .
While Yang Mi was considered good enough with the popularity she got, that could not be said for Li Jiuxian, who was not faring quite well in the fame department .
Nevertheless, they were greeted with thunderous applause and cheers by the audience upon their appearance on stage .
With an honored smile, the female host began her opening spiel . “It’s a privilege to appear on this stage today before you as one of the film fest’s emcees . To be honest, I still feel quite nervous to be up here, facing so many seniors in the industry . I’m dedicating my first hosting experience to the Golden Eagle Film Festival . As a rookie host, I may be lacking in terms of experience, but please give me this chance to express my deepest respect and earnestness for this event . ”
Thereafter, she bowed deeply to the audience with a hand placed on her chest, earning herself another round of applause from those below .
It was then her partner’s turn to give his opening speech, and Li Jiuxian managed to liven up the venue’s atmosphere with just a few words .
Like always, the film festival’s opening was very dry and dull, with each VIP guest giving a speech . The awards ceremony would only begin after several performances .
The first round of awards to be presented was the Director of the Year and the Film of the Year, with the former being first up .
The screen then began playing a video clip of the shortlisted names and their representative works, which, unsurprisingly included Lin Fengtian .
The nominees were the fair winners of the online voting, which had been held over two weeks before the film festival . Out of the ten contenders, only one would eventually emerge as the victor to receive the said prestigious award .
Lin Fengtian had one of the highest numbers of votes right from the start of the poll . The skyrocketing of ‘The Green Apple’, along with its raving reviews, made him one of the most viable candidates to bag the Best Director .
Only then did Yun Shishi finally feel a little tense .
She had paid special attention to the list of shortlisted names, and from what she could tell, the competition was very stiff .Please download our sponsor's game to support us!
