Chinese sci-fi blockbuster "The Wandering Earth" is among the winners of the 15th "Best Works Awards," according to the winners' list unveiled Monday.

Adapted from a short novel of the same name by Hugo Award winner Liu Cixin, the 2019 film grossed a total box office of 4.6 billion yuan (more than 650 million U.S. dollars) on the Chinese mainland, becoming China's second highest-grossing movie of all time. Set in the future, the film tells of an audacious attempt of mankind to save the Earth as the sun is about to expand into a red giant and devour the planet.

The winning works include 73 films, TV series, plays, radio dramas, songs and books.

Among them is "Ordinary World," a play based on the Mao Dun Literature Prize winning novel of the same name by Chinese author Lu Yao, which presents a panoramic view of modern Chinese life, in both urban and rural areas.
