I Know Everything - Chapter 453
Chapter 453: Genius also needs to study hard.
Yang Shu, who was a hot topic of discussion for those aunties, was obviously in Los Angeles now.
Fortunately, the Golden Globe was also in Los Angeles, otherwise if it was in New York, another eight or nine hours flight would be needed again.
Shanhai Streaming showed off their wealth again as they booked half of the Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
There were only about 20 people with the casting and staff so it was more than enough for a room per person.
This year’s Golden Globe was held at the banquet hall on the second floor of this Hilton Hotel.
It was very convenient to stay there and there was no need to run around.
Yang Shu and Zhu Mei shared a room.
During filming, Yang Shu was still accompanied by her mother but when she went to Italy, Busan or Tokyo, it was Zhu Mei who took care of her.
Zhu Mei was 39 years old and wasn’t married but it didn’t mean she didn’t like children.
She loved the clever little girl filled with personality and treated her as like a daughter.
Yang Shu wasn’t the typical 9 years old as she rarely acted spoiled as she did things calmly and took her time, and almost never acted up.
Let’s put it another way.
If height and appearance was put aside, there wouldn’t be any problem to regard Yang Shu as a 20 years old woman.
However, Yang Shu’s performance in the movie was really good.
She played the role of Li Yiyuan really well and brought her to life.
In many instances, Zhu Mei and the film crew regarded her as the real Li Yiyuan.
Zhu Mei was both surprised and happy at that time. She was happy that the role of Li Yiyuan could be brought alive but worried that Yang Shu wouldn’t be able to get out of the role.
Fortunately after the movie, Yang Shu returned home and with the company of her family, she didn’t act out of her normal character albeit she felt out of place at the beginning.
Zhu Mei and the others were relieved by that.
But they found out Yang Shu got more mature when they went to Venice.
She looked very naïve but was actually very thoughtful.
This was the same for the trip to the US.
While everyone loved to go out the days before the award ceremony began, Yang Shu bought a drawing board and sat alone at the entrance of the hotel to paint.
The people that went and go at the hotel were all movie or TV stars.
Yang Shu drew a lot of portraits of them before showing them to Zhu Mei and she felt it was very well drawn.
But at that time, Zhu Mei’s thought was still occupied by whether ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’ would be able to win an award.
Zhu Mei reached the step of being considered as one of the best directors from China.
Even if her resume was insufficient and couldn’t top a director like Hao He, who accumulated achievement for decades, she established her status as a master as far as literary film was concerned with ‘Love Letter’ and ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’.
In particular ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’ that immortalized Zhu Mei.
With that under her belt, she could easily get 50 million in funding even without a script and then the investor still had to say to her with a smile, “Director Zhu, you can shoot with peace of mind and I can add more money if it’s not enough.”
Zhu Mei of course didn’t get complacent or arrogant as she still planned to film all the good stories she could get.
But before that, she felt that should complete ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’.
‘Miracle in Cell No.7’ received the highest honor in Europe and Asia, it lacked only Hollywood now, the world’s capital of cinema.
She didn’t dare to hope for the Oscars but there was still hope for the Golden Globe.
‘Miracle in Cell No.7’ could be regarded as one of the highest successes once they get something from the Golden Globe.
Like that, she would bring a perfect ending for Chen Huan, Zheng Rongrong along with all the cast and staff.
But this was the US.
Everyone knew the attitude of the Americans toward Asian movies, it didn’t matter how good the movie was if the judges didn’t like it.
“Aunty Mei, why didn’t Uncle Chu show up for such an important award ceremony?” Yang Shu asked Zhu Mei at night after taking a shower.
“He doesn’t like busy occasions like this.” Zhu Mei, who was reading a book, replied with a smile.
“People say Uncle Chu is the most mysterious person and I have been personally chosen by Uncle Chu but I’ve never seen him.” Yang Shu said while in bed and supporting her head with her hands, “So how did he choose me?”
How could you not have met him?
He looked at you for half a day!
Zhu Mei said in her head before actually speaking, “He watched the VCR where you auditioned.”
“Oh, Aunty Mei, my mother said that I have to stop acting and obediently go to school after I go home.” Yang Shu said with some distress, “But I love acting! It’s very fun to act like someone else and experience their life!”
Zhu Mei subconsciously nodded her head.
Yang Shu was an acting genius and was born to act.
It would be a great loss to the film industry if this child wasn’t on the acting path.
Not to mention…
Not to mention Little Huan had already reserved the role of the protagonist’s daughter for her in ‘The Tale of Hachiko’.
That movie will start shooting next year at the latest.
Yang Shu would naturally join the cast when that happened.
How could Yang Shu’s mother refuse when it was Chu Liuxiang’s script?
Gu Shuiyao was also a big fan of Chu Liuxiang.
Otherwise she wouldn’t have let her daughter try out in the audition for ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’ while she was out shopping.
“It’s better if you’re around and study with kids of your age.” Zhu Mei said after some thought, “At your age, it wouldn’t be good if you don’t have fun like a kid does.”
“Mom said I will be transferred to another school after the Spring Festival.” Yang Shu let out a sigh, “She says the school doesn’t suit me anymore and I’m going to go to a private school. I heard it’s all children from famous actors and wealthy families… What do I have in common with them?”
Zhu Mei laughed loudly.
Yang Shu’s achievement was already comparable to the top performers in the industry so she was indeed different from those children.
Last month, Zheng Rongrong awarded Yang Shu with 20 million, which was enough for the Yang family to live a good life and give Yang Shu a good education.
Thinking of the wealth of the Yang family was all due to a nine years old girl, Zhu Mei felt that the world was really amazing.
But then she recalled that Chen Huan was only 17 years old and yet he could support a big family while being so outstanding, Zhu Mei’s amazement reduced.
But if she had the chance to have children in the future, her son must be like Chen Huan and her daughter like Yang Shu!
This would be the happiest thing a parent could hope for!
