It was recently announced that Chinese drama Love and Destiny 三生三世宸汐缘 starring Chang Cheng and Ni Ni has been nominated for best telenovela (TV series) in the 2020 International Emmy Awards! Apart from the Emmy Award that most of us are familiar with, the International Emmy Awards recognizes outstanding TV programming produced and released outside the United States.
Produced by iQIYI and GCOO Entertainment, Love and Destiny was first released as a web drama on Chinese video platform iQiyi last July 15, 2019. The 44 works that have been shortlisted for 11 awards come from more than 20 countries all over the world with Love and Destiny being the only Chinese series to make the cut.
Love and Destiny follows a Romeo and Juliet type of love story between God of War Jiu Chen, and young fairy maiden Ling Xi. Ling Xi accidentally wakes the God of War from his many years of slumber after he sealed the demon god away to protect the people. Problem is Ling Xi’s existence can unleash the demon god.
Congratulations to Love and Destiny’s nomination! It belongs to the popular genre that has sprouted hits like Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms and Ashes of Love over the years. It is indeed heartwarming to see this work of art earning international acclaim! All Emmy Award winners will be announced on November 23, 2020 at a ceremony held in New York City.
