In early January, Huading Awards Group announced in Los Angeles that the Huading Awards brand would be upgraded. In terms of film and television awards, the best works of global film and television would be selected at the same session. The award name changed to “Global Film and Television Arts Huading Awards”.

The “Better Call Saul Season 6” won Best Global Teleplay, while Christos Andrews won Best Global Teleplay Leading Actor and Devika Hornet (Mai) won Best Global Teleplay Leading Actress. This is another ice-breaking event between China and the U.S. after seven years, following the Huading Awards’ re-entry into Hollywood in 2016.
Since its establishment, the Huading Awards has grown continuously in the past 15 years. This year, four important awards have been added, including Best Global Visual Effects, Best Global Cinematography and Best Global Film Editing, to further align with international standards.
