I Know Everything - Chapter 455
Chapter 455: Soaring to heaven!
Facing the success, the calmest one was obviously the princess.
After spending so much money, if they didn’t give her a big prize, would they dare to dine and dash!
However, the princess definitely wouldn’t tell the casting that so it wouldn’t damper their mood.
After all, it was the Golden Globe that wasn’t fair to begin with.
Their organizing committee was more likely to treat the Golden Globe as a profit-making tool and it was well known that Americans looked down on Chinese films so she gave the money to make it fairer.
As long as the selection was fair, which movie could compare to ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’?
However, Zheng Rongrong didn’t expect that three days later, the list of nominees for the Oscars gave the Chinese fans a big surprise.
‘Miracle in Cell No.7’ was nominated for seven different awards.
Best Original Screenplay.
Best Supporting Actor (two nominees).
Best Makeup and Hairstyling.
From the moment the nominees were announced, it didn’t matter if they won or not, ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’ set another record for the Oscars.
Because all the previous Chinese films that participated in the Oscars could add up their nomination in the Oscars but still couldn’t add up to the current 7!
Moreover, it would actually be 8 if they counted both in the Best Supporting Actor!
At that moment, it was the most dazzling existence.
The people that went crazy for ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’ two days ago erupted again.
Even several big names in the entertainment industry congratulated them.
“Congratulations to ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’, to Director Zhu, to Teacher Chu and all the casting!” –Director Hao He.
“I’m not surprised at the success of ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’ but it is really a joy to have such a huge successful movie to fight for the honor of Chinese movie.” –Director Yan Shu.
“These few days while I’m filming abroad, many people congratulated me because I’m also in the Chinese film industry, I’m deeply proud of you guys!” Heavenly King Chen Hao.
“This movie doesn’t have a leading adult female role, which I deeply regret. I must participate in Director Zhu Mei and Teacher Chu Liuxiang’s movie. I can’t miss such a good movie that represents our country!” – Heavenly Queen Dong Shu.
“I just acted in a TV series made by Teacher Chu, I hope my acting skills can be recognized and efforts by Teacher Chu so I can get a chance in his movies! Congratulations to ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’, you guys are the best!” Young men role specialist Wen Qi.
The Japan and Korea media also got excited.
Because two of the nominations for the Best Supporting Actor were from their countries.
The two went to the Golden Globe and gained honor as part of the casting but it had little do with them personally.
But this time with the Oscars Nominations for the Best Supporting Actor, it was a big award to themselves!
Concerning Japan, they were fortunate as they had Directors or actors that had won Oscars before.
However, it was only one actress that had won the Oscars for Best Supporting Actress and the male actors never won anything.
It would be a very exciting and joyful thing if they could win a Best Supporting Actor now.
Many people went to ridicule their Heavenly Kings’ eagerness to ask for a supporting role but no word of it was spoken now as if it never happened.
As for Korea,
They have never won an Oscar.
How could they not be ecstatic when a delicious pie suddenly fell down from the sky?
“Mr. Naito’s acting is undoubtedly superb and deserves to be nominated for Best Supporting Actor. We are very optimistic about the end results!”
“’Miracle in Cell No.7’ success isn’t only attributed to a few people and everyone has credit for it. Although Mr. Naito isn’t the lead actor, he was the most outstanding among the supporting actors.”
“After carefully inspecting his competitors, I don’t think anyone is a threat to him! The Japanese people must go cheer for him!”
“Haha, I find it strange, it’s obviously our brother Jiang Shiyu who performed the best and overcame himself. Why the Japanese are so shameless and insist that this award is already destined to them?”
“The Japanese are like bears, it’s like they have never seen the rest of the world! Don’t they know that ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’ was first released in Korea? Jiang Shiyu won the award with his performance!”
“The Japanese are taking action, we must Jiang Shiyu oppa, he’s the best! We can’t let Japanese steal the award from us!”
Regardless whether it was the media or the people, Japanese and Korean started to quarrel again.
It would have been fine if the opposition was anyone else but because of the past hatred between the two countries, the competition for the Best Supporting Actor seemed to have upgraded in importance and the impact was broader.
The Chinese media and netizens were pretty calm meanwhile.
“Hmm, look at them, did they go crazy? We haven’t said anything about Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Actress on our side yet!”
“So what even if we didn’t win anything? It’s already an unprecedented victory to have so many nominations, not to mention the previous awards already affirmed the greatness of ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’!”
“Right, we can’t be too hopeful. I think the nominations this time in the Oscars are more form than content so our awards overhaul wouldn’t be as big as before.”
“I think so too but maybe we have hope for Best Picture. Oh, right, Best Original Screenplay is probably guaranteed.”
“I think we have a big chance in the Best Actress category! Look at the nominees in that category, which one of them is better than our little princess?”
“I can’t agree more with the poster above! Yang Shu’s performance is definitely historical! Isn’t it said that it’s easier for the old, disabled and children to win an Oscar? Our Yang Shu is only 9 years old!”
“Taking a knee to the poster above, some martial movie could even get an Oscar and it didn’t even have any emotion in it!”
The Spring Festival became even more heated with the stimulus of the Golden Globe and Oscars.
Everyone had nothing to do so the casting of ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’ became the focus of the country again.
