Congratulations to Tao Hong for winning Best Supporting Actress! I absolutely loved her in A Little Reunion.

Even though the Magnolia Awards tend to favor actors/directors/dramas in the Shanghai circle, it is the awards show I enjoy watching most because the winners are usually worthy recipients.

  1. I was wondering why The Thunder was never mentioned on these drama news sites and yet it has won Best Drama. It must be good, if it is overall best (there will always be some weak points). Have to go search for it & check it out. This drama is not listed on this site.

  2. Their choice for best drama can be weird sometimes. Remember when Legend of Miyue won? I haven’t watched The Thunder but I noticed the second half got criticized left and right.
