The day after the recording, rumours began to spread on the internet that Yuan Qian was making things difficult for the people during the recording session. Yuan Qian was also a popular person who had a lot of problems. No matter what she did, people like her usually attracted controversies on the internet easily, not to mention this time she was caught in such a proper scandal.
Soon, the audience who participated in the recording described in great detail on the internet how Yuan Qian threw a plastic ball at Wen Lin, and also released a picture of Yuan Qian’s cold face taken by their mobile phone.
At the same time, another photo also circulated, that was, a photo of Wen Jianing lifting Wen Lin’s face to look at the wound on his cheekbones. The angle of the photo was very good. Wen Jianing looked concerned and the two looked very intimate.
On the entertainment forum, someone joked about the topic “Xiao Zongyi and Xiao Zongyan should abandon Ling Zhener to be together”. The topic also aroused the disgust of some original book fans, and a dozen pages of words as high as buildings were built at once with great enthusiasm.
Yi Nan surfed the Internet with a tablet computer in the lounge. When he saw Wen Jianing and Wen Lin walked in, he raised his head and said, “Have you seen the internet? You guys are told to stay together.”
Wen Jianing smiled, and put his hand on Wen Lin’s shoulder, “We are already together.”
Yi Nan said, “Don’t let me see such disgusting things.”
Yi Nan and Jiang Yongfei’s duet single had been released, and the response on the internet was good, but it was mainly because Jiang Yongfei has a large number of fans. In fact, if they really wanted to talk about momentum, right now, Yi Nan was not as popular as Wen Jianing and Wen Lin. ‘The Strange Fate of Hairpin and Phoenix’ had not been broadcast yet, but both of them had become popular.
Soon, Yuan Qian’s fans began to argue fiercely, saying that it was a hype to match the drama’s promotion while pointing the finger at the TV station and Wen Lin. Someone on Weibo issued a questionable topic of “Wen Lin apologized to Yuan Qian”.
Although when you clicked the topic you could see a lot of people were scolding the original poster, Wen Lin still looked very angry.
Wen Jianing advised him not to take it to heart, and that it was not a big deal.
Yi Nan saw it next to him, and said, “What is this woman doing?”
Wen Lin said, “Be a popular flower.”
Yi Nan pursed his lips, “Didn’t she rely on Li Rong to support her back? Didn’t you hear that she is famous for bringing capital into the group?”
Wen Jianing couldn’t help being a little curious, “Do you know everything?”
Yi Nan glanced at him, “I know. Why? The Film Emperor Lu didn’t tell you any of this? He’s not on good terms with Li Rong.”
Wen Jianing replied, “When we are together, we don’t talk about personal matters.”
Yi Nan was a little surprised when he heard that, “You guys are not talking about personal matters? Then what are you two talking about?”
Wen Jianing said, “Official business. He is my boss, and it is my job to please him.”
Yi Nan’s face changed, and he couldn’t help cursing, “You really have no shame!”
Wen Lin bumped Wen Jianing’s arm and told him not to make these jokes.
At this time, Zheng Xin opened the door of the lounge and came in from the outside. When he saw the three of them sitting in the lounge, he smiled and said, “Since you are all here. Let’s have a meeting.”
The meeting was led by Zheng Xin. In addition to Wen Jianing and the others, there were several new young artists in the company. Compared with Huang Gang in the past, Wen Jianing could sense Bai Shengzhe’s intentions and how he had put a lot of effort into cultivating new talents.
However, it was inevitable that Jiang Yongfei would feel that she was not given not as much attention as before. Wen Jianing didn’t know if she has some disagreement with Bai Shengzhe, but he rarely saw Jiang Yongfei in the company recently.
After explaining his recent work, at the end of the meeting, Zheng Xin said, “I have three invitation cards for Academy Awards for those who are interested.”
Most of the people invited to the Academy Awards were filmmakers. Of course, entertainment companies would not ignore it. Bai Shengzhe would definitely go there. Zheng Xin has three extra tickets here. He meant to let Wen Jianing and the others go see it.
Wen Lin was actually more interested in the Golden Melody Awards, but Yi Nan immediately asked, “Can I go?”
Zheng Xin smiled and nodded, then said to Wen Jianing and Wen Lin, “You go together. The company will arrange a car to send you off at that time.”
Wen Jianing looked at the invitation card in Zheng Xin’s hand and suddenly felt a little complicated. It was not an official invitation card of the organizing committee, but just equivalent to an admission ticket, because they had no work and would not be invited to the red carpet.
Every year, the film creators and actors that were nominated for the awards, as well as the awarding guests invited by the organizing committee, took the red carpet of the Academy Award. Before this year, Wen Jianing stepped on the long red carpet every year, and last year was the most energetic time.
When Zheng Xin stood up, he saw Wen Jianing staring at the invitation card in a daze. He said, “Do you have confidence that you will step on the red carpet in two years?”
Wen Jianing looked up at him, smiled, and said, “I will be ready next year.”
Zheng Xin reached out and patted him on the shoulder.
Although they didn’t need to walk on the red carpet, they would only be in an inconspicuous corner when they entered the venue. There might not be a lens to shoot them from start to finish, but Wen Jianing and the others still dressed up and attended the awards ceremony.
The Golden Film Awards hall had not changed in many years. Wen Jianing sat in the corner of the back row, looking at the position in front of him in a daze. If it weren’t for the accident, he would probably sit in the second row this year, next to Lu Jinlang.
And Lu Jinlang would still sit near that position this year, but what about himself?
Maybe he could sleep in Lu Jinlang’s bed tonight. Wen Jianing was instantly amused by his own thoughts. Yi Nan glared at him and said in a low voice, “Crazy.”
After waiting for a while, the filmmakers and big stars sitting in the front row entered the venue one after another.
Lu Jinlang entered the hall with a well-known actress. He politely and courteously escorted her to her seat before going to her own.
Seeing that the awards ceremony was about to officially begin, almost all the seats in the awards hall were seated, and the lights in the hall dimmed.
“It’s about to start,” Wen Lin said in a low voice. At this time, he also began to look forward to it vaguely.
After solemn opening remarks, the two hosts took the stage. Unlike in previous years, they used jokes to bring a relaxed atmosphere, but their tone and expression were somewhat a bit solemn. Then they began a long speech with the theme of commemorating Wen Jianing and all the awards given to him, and sad music reverberated in the hall.
Wen Jianing was a little startled because he didn’t know that there would be such an opening.
After the memorial speech, the large screen in the middle began to play a short introduction of Wen Jianing, including his works that got nominated for the Academy Award in recent years, and finally the video of Wen Jianing receiving the award when he won the Academy Award for best actor last year.
At that time, Wen Jianing stood on the podium with the little golden man in his hand. He was a little excited, and his eyes were full of tears. He said many words of thanks, including the film creator, his management company, his family and every one of his friends. He said that his gain today was the result of his own struggle, and he was also lucky that so many people had always supported him. Finally, bowed deeply and waved his little men and got off the stage.
What were you thinking at the time? It must be the best feeling of standing at the peak of life and being proud, and it couldn’t be a better memory.
After the video ended, the big screen switched to the scene of the award ceremony. In the front row, there were several female stars familiar with Wen Jianing, with tears in their eyes. The camera also swept Lu Jinlang’s face. He looked calm and dignified.
“Are you crying?” Wen Lin said suddenly, and he was surprised to find that Wen Jianing beside him was crying.
Wen Jianing raised his hand and wiped his face, and said, “It’s nothing.”
Wen Lin probably thought he felt sorry for the idol, so he raised his hand and patted him on the shoulder to comfort him.
Wen Jianing felt that the music here was so sentimental that people couldn’t help but be sad unconsciously.
After that, the award ceremony officially began.
There were more than 20 awards at the Golden Film Awards. For the audience, the most anticipated were undoubtedly the candidates for the leading actor and actress, as well as the best film, director, supporting actor and actress and newcomer awards. However, many of the previous film-related awards had not attracted much attention. Everyone’s attention was focused on the award winners.
Yi Nan was a little unconcerned. He turned his eyes around and suddenly nudged Wen Jianing and said, “Yuan Qian is here too.”
Wen Jianing glanced, he didn’t care about Yuan Qian but noticed that Li Rong was also here today. The two seemed to be quarrelling that day, but now they were sitting together as if nothing had happened.
Wen Lin just came to see the excitement. He asked Wen Jianing when the award for the best actor and actress would be awarded. Wen Jianing told him that it would be at least the second half, and he suddenly lost some interest.
“I’ll go to the bathroom,” Wen Lin said, then stood up and moved slowly down the aisle.
“Wait,” Wen Jianing stopped him, “I’ll go with you.”
When they came out of the award hall, Wen Jianing walked with Wen Lin along the arc-shaped corridor towards the bathroom. The corridor was empty and the staff were busy backstage.
Wen Lin went into the bathroom, but Wen Jianing just wanted to get a breather at the end of the corridor.
To be honest, he was still a bit immersed in the emotions just now out, feeling sad about his own death. He suddenly remembered his mother, Wen Cuilan. Wen Jianing never thought about getting close to Wen Cuilan. In fact, a large part of the reason was that after Wen Cuilan remarried, she was happy in her marriage. Wen Cuilan had been abroad in recent years, and the two of them rarely see each other. But their bond connected by blood would not fade anyway.
Just when Wen Jianing looked out the window in a daze, a woman came out from the nearby bathroom. Wen Jianing was stunned when he saw the woman because the woman was Wen Cuilan.
Wen Cuilan didn’t look at him much. She came out of the bathroom and walked in the direction of the award hall.
Wen Jianing subconsciously caught up two steps. He opened his mouth and shouted, “Ms. Wen!”
Wen Cuilan stopped, turned around and looked at him suspiciously.
Wen Jianing was stunned. Just when he was about to speak, suddenly he saw Lu Jinlang appear in the corridor, walking in their direction.
As soon as he saw Lu Jinlang, Wen Jianing changed his tone and said, “I am a fan of Mr. Wen, and I like him very much.”
Wen Cuilan looked sad when she heard what he said, nodded to Wen Jianing and said, “Thank you.” She no longer remembered that this young man once appeared at Wen Jianing’s funeral and called her “Mom” loudly.
Wen Jianing didn’t say anything anymore, so Wen Cuilan said goodbye politely and left.
Lu Jinlang overheard their conversation, and when he passed by Wen Cuilan, he nodded politely, then walked towards Wen Jianing and said, “Are you that sad?”
Wen Jianing was slightly stunned and didn’t understand what he meant.
Lu Jinlang raised his hand, bent his index finger and rubbed it gently under Wen Jianing’s eyes, and said, “Your eyes are still red.”
Wen Jianing raised his hand and wiped his eyes in shock, and noticed that there was still a small drop of tears hanging on his eyelashes.
Lu Jinlang smiled gently, “He really seems to be your idol, huh.” he said.
Wen Jianing did not deny it, nor did he say anything to boast about himself.
Lu Jinlang suddenly asked him, “Why do you like Wen Jianing more?”
After Wen Jianing heard this question, it took him a while before he reacted. It turned out that Lu Jinlang was aware that the outside world has been comparing him with Wen Jianing. The meaning of “why do you like Wen Jianing more” meant if he liked Wen Jianing more than him.
Wen Jianing himself really didn’t know how to answer this question. He suddenly remembered his previous joke about who was going to be in Lu Jinlang’s bed tonight and laughed all of a sudden. How would Lu Jinlang react if he knew that the person sleeping next to him was Wen Jianing? Will he be scared and fall out of bed?
“What are you laughing at?” Lu Jinlang folded his arms on his chest and looked at Wen Jianing. He couldn’t help but smile. Sometimes he wanted to open up Wen Jianing’s head to see what he was thinking about.
Wen Jianing shook his head. He rubbed his still red eyes and asked Lu Jinlang, “Are you still busy after the awards ceremony?”
“There’s a dinner party,” Lu Jinlang said, “But it doesn’t have much to do with me this year. I don’t have to attend.” He thought Wen Jianing was inviting him.
Wen Jianing thought, “Oh, the celebration banquet. I almost forgot. Zheng Xin told us to go to the celebration banquet with manager Bai and get to know someone.”
Lu Jinlang asked, “Who do you want to know? I can introduce them to you.”
Wen Jianing smiled, “I haven’t thought about who to meet, I need to go and see then. I think it is best to get acquainted with a few big directors.”
Lu Jinlang shook his head, “The big director doesn’t like you.”
Wen Jianing asked, “Why?”
Lu Jinlang said, “They think you are too small.” After saying that, he lifted his leg and gently bumped his knee into Wen Jianing’s lower part.
However, he didn’t expect this scene to be seen by Wen Lin, who had just come out of the bathroom. Wen Lin was a little stunned for a moment. He was obviously frightened.
Wen Jianing watched Wen Lin stare at Lu Jinlang, and quickly said to him, “You go back first, I’ll be there soon.”
Wen Lin came back to his senses. When he turned to leave, he remembered that he should say hello to Lu Jinlang, so he bent over and said, “Hello, Coach Lu.” his head couldn’t turn around, and he still used the title he used to call Lu Jinlang during the competition.
Lu Jinlang nodded to him.
Wen Lin quickly walked towards the way back.
