Chapter 225: Finale (1)
Qiao Moyu didn’t finish looking through the comments when the host arrived on stage. They announced the start of the banquet.
Firstly, the head of the committee spoke first. He spoke frankly with assurance, with a sense of humor. The atmosphere became carefree right then.
Qiao Moyu ignored the comments and listened to his speech seriously.
At this time, her phone vibrated.
She looked down to see a message sent by Ye Peicheng. There was only a short sentence. Moyu, don’t worry. I will handle this.
She finished looking at it and smiled. She replied, “Ok.”
Tonight was the awards ceremony. Because of this, once the speech was over, the host revealed the different major awards.
The awards were from least significant to most significance. They would reveal the best male and female lead at the end, or those who obtained the title as Film Emperor and Empress.
Today’s 《Dawn’s Break of Light》 and 《Pomegranate tree》 and another stream of consciousness movie were clearly the winners of the awards. The three movies took over about 80% of the awards. The best director award was given to Director Feng Xuan who directed 《Dawn’s Break of Light》.
“Now, we are going to announce the best male lead!” The host exclaimed happily. “But before we give the award out, Mr. Ye Peicheng notified us earlier on that he would not participate in the entertainment circle anymore and withdrew from the voting.”
The camera didn’t go to Ye Peicheng. Therefore, besides the surrounding people who knew he was here, many believed that he was absent.
“The potential candidates for the best male lead award are —” The host began to call out the list of names who made it in.
On the screen, the camera changed constantly. But when the host announced the result, everyone was shocked.
This is because it was the male lead of 《Daoist Mountain of Immortals》who was just an ordinary actor!
He was the most unexpected winner this year. Because this movie had an eye-opening ceremony done by Qiao Moyu, when people looked at the male actor, they also looked at her.
There were some who tried to be friendly with her while there were others who took joy in her misfortune for what happened on Weibo. But the majority were shocked by Qiao Moyu’s “daoist skills” and shivered.
That male actor went on stage. Because of his excitement, his voice trembled and he almost sobbed.
He had been in the entertainment circle for a long time but he was never famous. Yet, because of this movie, it completely changed his life.
He was sincere with his sentiments and in the end, he mentioned Qiao Moyu. He was grateful for her help and bowed at her.
Qiao Moyu secretly rubbed her hands against each other. She was a frequent visitor of the hot search on Weibo. Couldn’t he help to keep her low-profiled?
The male actor received the Star Shadow Trophy and walked down with teary eyes. The host stood in front of the microphone and said, “Now, let’s announce our last award — Best Female Lead Award. Let’s see who would obtain this in the end! Let’s welcome our special guest of the committee, Mr. Huang to give the award!”
When Qiao Moyu saw Huang Chu on stage, she was completely shocked.
Speaking of him, just who was him? Why would he be invited to give out the last award? She had been originally nervous but curiosity took over her emotions now.
Huang Chu who was on stage was even more nervous than Qiao Moyu, however.
He held the name of the winner but he wasn’t sure of the result. Though he wished that it would be Qiao Moyu.
He opened the first envelope and said with a steady and firm voice, “I now announce that the candidates for the Best Female Lead Award are: 《Qing》by Zhang Xiao, 《Night Temple》 by Chen Yilan, 《Pomegranate Tree》by Qiao Moyu, and 《Chen Courtyard》by Wang Lin!”
Whenever the host mentioned an actress, the screen would reveal basic introduction of them. In the end, the screen was divided into four corners. Qiao Moyu was on the bottom left. The camera constantly changed and the four actresses were clearly shown on the screen.
Huang Chu opened the next envelope. He said, “The Best Female Award goes to —”
But before he could finish his words, the screens suddenly changed. When everyone saw the images, they were stunned. They all looked at Qiao Moyu!
There were two pictures on the screen. One was when Qiao Moyu had brought Luo Luo to kindergarten and the other was when she and Ye Peicheng took a romantic walk and held hands.
Because the screen was huge, the image had a lot of impact on the people. The words on the pictures made everyone shocked.
【Is the new flower, Qiao Moyu, an innocent woman or a mother? Mr. Ye, do you know?】
Seeing this scene, everyone started to discuss this after being momentarily shocked. There was a bustle of conversation.
On stage, the host’s expression changed. He hurriedly said to everyone, “Sorry, there must be something wrong. I will immediately go handle this!”
After that, he quickly went backstage.
Huang Chu who had seen this looked at her, interested.
Heh. Others may not know the inside story but he knew! He would see how Ye Peicheng decided to handle this matter and the person behind it!
