  • It’s been reported that the 50th Golden Bell Awards made some changes to their award categories. Best Newcomer award will be making its return after 19 years ever since the 31st Golden Bell Awards. There have been some concerns raised by the industry critics about the criteria of Best Newcomer award as they have to do a thorough investigation on whether an actor/actress fits the criteria of “Newcomer” and whether actors or actresses who shot short films and web-dramas can still be considered as a newcomer. Even though there’s many grey areas to the judging criteria of the newcomer award, industry professionals think it’s a good award to encourage rookies and to be recognize by the public. On the other hand, Best Marketing Award will be cancelled from this year onwards. SETTV who have won 4 times Best Marketing Awards express regrets about the cancellation as they believe that marketing is also an important aspect in the TV industry. [China Times]
