Netizens blast the GBA judges for being unfair; criticize Tsai Yue-hsun for being biased
The newly crowned Best Actor of the 2009 edition of the Golden Bell Awards emerged yesterday as Mark Chao, but netizens have already started to question the fairness of the judging. They suspect that Mark won because the judges were judging him based on that of a newcomer, so therefore he bested Zaizai (Vic Chou).
The other opinion is that since Mark is signed under Director Tsai as an artiste, he would naturally cut portions of the drama whereby Mark acts better for the judges to see, and therefore he and Zaizai were never fairly judged to begin with.
Committee member Li You-ning explained yesterday: “Judges don’t base their results on the identities of the nominees, they only base the outcomes on the nominees’ performances.” He further said that the actors were based on the performances in two cuts of each show.
“Perhaps each judge has different opinions on acting and aesthetic quality, so we have this system whereby the highest score is 90 and the lowest 70 in case of a too-big difference in the scores. After the results are out, we then ask the judges to review and discuss the outcome, and everyone votes. For the Best Actor award, Mark Chao was leading Zaizai by a huge gap, so there is no doubt about the result.”
Lee You-ning commented that Mark handled all his scenes well, be they emotional or fighting scenes, and the judges really were “shocked” by his performance. He also said that Mark’s award is both an encouragement and a source of stress to him, so the newbie should focus on improving and delivering better works the next time.
However, netizen Sandy stands on Zaizai’s side: “No matter how you look at it, Zaizai’s role was the most challenging, and he also portrayed it so well. It’s unbelievable that Mark Chao got the award instead.”
Another netizen 1541108 also said: “I look down on the production unit, who used Zaizai’s fame as a form of promotion while secretly promoting the newbies. Everything, from lines to the development of character was focused so heavily on them, nobody can stand to be treated like this.”
But there are also others on Mark’s side, saying: “Like what the judges said, because it was Mark’s first time acting, therefore he had no fear and was able to fully express himself via his physical actions. After all, action scenes are more on physical movements and the such, so it’s no surprise that Mark impressed everyone.”

Vic Zhou (Zai Zai)'s drama; [Black and White], was competing in the [Taiwan's Golden Bell Award] yesterday night. Zai Zai did not win the Best Male Actor award. Zai Zai was defeated by his co-star from the same drama; Mark Zhao. He was crowed the Best Male Actor. When the winner was announced last night; Zai Zai was sitting among the audience making weird face expressions to hide his embarrassment. It was reported that Zai Zai did not go for the “victory celebration” showing his dissatisfaction. There were reports saying that Zai Zai will "strike" and not film Black and White movie version which is expected to start filming in June next year. Netizens also criticised the results indicating that the results were biased towards Mark Zhao.
[Black & White] was the big winner this year. Winning 5 awards - Best Drama, Best Director, Best Male Actor, Best Marketing & Best Art and Design.
Smile sadly during embarrassing moment
Zai Zai was missing during “victory celebration.” The camera was on Zai Zai’s face when the winner was announced; showing his defeated, sad and embarrassing face. Mark Zhou burst into tears when he was reciting his thank you speech and said “I think I am still not stable.” And thank Zai Zai over and over again. Mark Zhou is the son of veteran artist Zhou Shu Hai. Last year, he was discovered by Director Tsai and debut with the drama [Black and White]. This is his debut movie and earned him a nomination in this prestigious award. His role was a fair and justice police in this drama and his character - Wu Ying Xiong was very well welcomed.
During the victory celebration, he looks calm but his face was still a bit stiff. He admitted that he feels complicated and said, “I really hoped that it was Zai Zai who won this. Zai Zai expectation for me was high.” He expressed that they do exchange text messages privately thanking Zai Zai for his help during filming.
Netizens criticised results
Mark Zhou debuted in this drama and won such a prestigious award causing Netizens to blast over unfairness of results. Netizens complained that the results were biased. Mark Zhou’s acting is still immature and unstable and is only recognized by the panel of jury. Even [Black and White] producer Yu Xiao Hui felt that Zai Zai should have won. It was said that there were about 180 complains about this matter. Yu Xiao Hui said, “Mark Zhou would feel a lot of pressure. Not saying that he should not win the award. Is just that the panel of jury failed to see the latter half of Zai Zai’s character in the movie that changed his life. He would come back next year for Zai Zai.” She also think that, “As a newcomer getting 60 points is enough. However, Mark got 80 points. Zai Zai’s acting matured acting did surprised audience from time to time. However, by looking at the points, Mark’s additional points would be higher than Zai Zai’s.”
Movie version could not be without Zai Zai
The movie version of [Black and White] is expected to start filming in February next year and is schedule to premier during Christmas next year. However, it is feared that things might change because Zai Zai did not win the award this year. Zai Zai has already signed contract with another producer. He might not have time to film the movie version. Zai Zai’s manager expressed that, “At the moment, we’re still negotiating with the producer to see whether could the filming be delayed and finding a perfect time slot that suits everyone.” Does not rule out the possibility of not participating in this movie. Yu Xiao Hiao said she does not rule out any possibilities. She has been in touched with Zai Zai all these while. She also said that she and Zai Zai would like to make this dream happened. How can it happen with him? Worst come to the worst, we might just give up on this project. We would not find someone else.
Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan fans show comfort and support
Yesterday afternoon, Zai Zai had a meet-up session with 800 fans from Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan. They sang and played games together. With the fans comfort and support, Zai Zai’s GBA defeat could be put down for a while.
