Today I was elated to find out that Sun Li has recently been nominated for the 2013 International Emmy Award in the category of “Best Performance by an Actress”. She has been nominated for her performance as Zhen Huan in the Legend of Zhen Huan, of course!! 😀 There are three other actresses who have been nominated for the same category; it is quite the diverse group as all four of the contenders come from 4 different countries–the UK, Brazil, China, and Sweden! Sun Li will be attending the awards ceremony in New York on November 25, 2013.
Of course I’m hoping for Sun Li to win the award but just the nomination alone has made me very happy, hehe. I think it acknowledges that the Legend of Zhen Huan has truly been an internationally acclaimed drama. It has already spread through China, Taiwan, Singapore, and Japan and it has its share of international fans even where it has not been broadcasted on a local major TV network. I’d say it is getting the attention it deserves and of course, Sun Li also deserves acknowledgement for her unforgettable performance as Zhen Huan. Sun Li has already gotten an award for her acting in LZH from the Anhui Television drama awards but I think an International Emmy award nomination is taking it to the next level!
