The winners of nine awards, including those for the best actor, actress, director, and best picture, were announced at the closing ceremony of the China Golden Rooster and Hundred Flowers Film Festival 2020.

The award for best picture went to the patriotic anthology film "My People, My Country," a major production celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. Frant Gwo won the best director award for the highest-grossing sci-fi epic "The Wandering Earth."

The best actor award was handed to Huang Xiaoming for his role in a firefighter tribute film, "The Bravest."

The best actress award went to Zhou Dongyu for her role in "Better Days," a story about school bullying. Zhou's co-star in the film, the pop-idol-turned-actor Jackson Yee, earned the best new actor award.

"Dying to Survive" also won two awards: the excellent film award and the best supporting actor (Wang Chuanjun). Yuan Quan, a veteran actress starring in "The Captain," received the award for best supporting actress.

Jiao Zi, who wrote and directed the highest-grossing Chinese animated feature "Ne Zha," was awarded the best screenplay writer.

The Hundred Flowers Awards was founded in 1962 as the "people's choice award," which gives out awards after counting moviegoers' votes around the country. Decades later, China Golden Rooster and Hundred Flowers Film Festival was jointly initiated by the China Federation of Literary and Art Circles and the China Film Association in 1992. Now the festival is one of the most professional and authoritative film festivals on the Chinese mainland. 

There is a separate China Film Golden Rooster Awards, also known as "expert awards," as the results are decided by filmmakers, critics, film historians, and other experts. This award ceremony will be held from Nov. 24 - 28 in Xiamen, Fujian province this year.
