Chapter 806: Pretty Good Performance
Jiang Yuning sat at the table, as she stared at all the shining artistes in the entertainment industry.
Whether it was an award-giving guest or a performing guest, they were all entirely new faces to Jiang Yuning. Jiang Yuning spent a lot of time adapting to the situation.
Unknowingly, two hours passed and the awards ceremony was about to usher in a climax.
“Now, it is finally the tensest and most important moment of this Feitian Awards ceremony. Who will win the best actor and actress awards this time? Let us invite the guest of honor, director Shen Guobang, and the chairman of Feihong Media to come on stage to present the award.” The host on stage was very professional as Director Shen Guobang and another person in the entertainment circle walked to the award platform hand in hand before they stopped in front of the microphone.
Jiang Yuning saw Director Shen Guobang, and she suddenly thought of the first time she met with Director Shen. The both of them talked about shooting a small video at the table, as if it had just happened yesterday.
“Well, I have seen a lot of acquaintances,” Director Shen Guobang said as he held an unopened yellow envelope in his hand.
“As we all know, Director Shen Guobang is a very powerful costume drama director in our country. Each of his works is a fine product. I want to ask you, if you want to become an actress, how can you attract favor then?” Shen Guobang asked with interest, the he deliberately created an atmosphere on stage.
“Uh…” Director Shen hesitated, then glanced at the audience and replied, “Amongst the candidate actresses tonight, three of them have worked with me, and one of them is the weirdest. You should try and guess who it is.”
The actors and actresses under the stage turned their heads and looked for the person that Director Shen Guobang was talking about although they didn’t know who they were looking at.
“Jiang Yuning. The day I met this girl for the first time was because of the third female lead in <Mysteries of Heaven>. She chatted with me for hours about astronomy and geography, bronze jade, antiques, calligraphy and painting, tea making craftsmanship and so forth just because of a single role.”
There was a burst of laughter from the audience.
The guests also turned their eyes towards Jiang Yuning’s direction.
“At the beginning, I thought this girl was fooling me. I was just happy at that time, but later I found out that she really understood everything that she was talking about. In order to take good pictures of my role, she went to study Chinese medicine. When we were in the crew, she would always prescribe us with any prescription whenever we are feeling unwell. I always think this girl is very interesting. Later, I figured out a truth from her. As long as Jiang Yuning decided to do something, she will definitely succeed. You see, isn’t she sitting in the audience again now? I want to know now, whether her name is in the envelope in my hand!”
Director Shen Guobang’s introduction was a little long, and he was constantly praising Jiang Yuning.
This made the guests think that Jiang Yuning had great hopes for winning the award this time.
“Then we will announce the best actor and best actress winner of this Feitian Award.” Ms. Jiang Hong smiled as she spoke.
Jiang Yuning’s heartbeat speeded up suddenly, and cold sweat started coming out of her palms.
Ku Jie might have seen through her nervousness, and he turned his head around to tease her intentionally: “Didn’t you say that you don’t care? Why is it such a big deal then?”
“Brother? Are you really my own brother?” Jiang Yuning questioned him immediately.
At this time, the two guests on the stage were already announcing the names of the winner. After Jiang Yuning sat upright, there were already fierce applause in the audience.
Jiang Yuning didn’t hear her name. Anyway, it wasn’t her.
“It doesn’t matter, being nominated is the greatest recognition.” Jiang Yuning thought in her heart, and at this time, Shen Guobang continued to announce, “It seems that this year’s Feitian Award ceremony will be recorded in the annals of history, because there is another best actress award. Congratulations to Jiang Yuning, the female lead in the movie <Suffocation>!”
The spotlight suddenly hit Jiang Yuning. At this time, Jiang Yuning was still comforting herself in her heart.
When he saw that she had not moved at all, Ku Jie tapped her arm quickly: “Why are you in a daze? Goon stage to receive the award.”
“Huh?” Jiang Yuning glanced at Ku Jie blankly, then looked to the stage in a panic.
“Jiang Yuning!?”
As soon as she heard those three words, Jiang Yuning finally reacted and got up from her seat. The spotlight kept illuminating her steps until she stepped onto the podium.
Shen Guobang saw her and stretched out his hand towards her.
Jiang Yuning stepped forward and hugged Director Shen Guobang and thanked him for his cultivation.
For Jiang Yuning, Director Shen Guobang was also a teacher and friend. Sometimes, he was like her father.
Jiang Yuning and another veteran actor won the Best Actress Award this year. The both of them and the actor who won the Best Actor Award, stood on the award platform and accepted the award. Jiang Yuning didn’t feel the sense of reality until the heavy trophy fell in her hand.
“Yuning, give your thank you speech soon.” The host reminded.
Jiang Yuning glanced at the trophy, took a step forward, and thought for a while before she said: “I am a bit stunned. I am so confused by this sudden surprise. I never thought that I would be able to get such an important award. As if I had never thought of it, I can still stand on this podium. My life seems to be wrapped by countless unexpected surprises. It sounds so lucky, but behind these countless unexpected people have worked hard with me and they understand the injuries and pain I have suffered. I did not expect that I could stand here, but I know how much effort I have put into shooting <Suffocation> and what kind of setbacks I have faced. So, I don’t think it’s entirely luck. I worked very hard for it.”
“No one’s luck is really pure luck. There must be a good cause behind you that you don’t know about.”
“So, don’t underestimate your every effort, and don’t underestimate your every kindness. Perhaps, it just didn’t return at the time, but it will always surprise you somewhere.”
“Finally, I thank all those who love me and everyone whom I love. Without you, there would be no Jiang Yuning today!”
Jiang Yuning’s remarks landed, and everyone could see a more mature and confident Jiang Yuning.
Everyone said she was lucky, but she refuted everyone’s words.
You have to work hard before you have luck, and the harder you work, the luckier you are.

Under the stage, bursts of applause erupted. Jiang Yuning stepped down with the trophy and sat down beside Ku Jie confidently and intellectually.
“Pretty good performance.”
“Of course.”
Only when Jiang Yuning was rationally mature that others could remember that she was already the mother of a one-year-old child.
Because of Jiang Yuning’s acceptance speech, the Ginger Candies who watched the live broadcast couldn’t help but burst into tears. How could Empress Jiang be like this? Her baby was one year old and she was already giving people heartfelt advice.
However, her heartfelt advice were not just purely advice, because she has lived and gotten what she wanted.
