The Huading Film Awards, China’s No. 1 entertainment kudos fest, took place in the U.S. for the first time on Sunday evening at the Montalban Theater in Hollywood.

International film stars including Lucy Liu, Halle Berry and Orlando Bloom were among the honorees in attendance at the bilingual event, which reached over one billion viewers via broadcast as well as another 400 million viewers online. The award recipients were determined based on the votes of 80 million fans, allowing the Chinese public to celebrate their favorite films and thesps.

Don Mischer, the ceremony’s exec producer, is no stranger to the awards show scene, having produced both the Oscars and Emmys in past years. Though bringing the awards to Hollywood posed some challenges, Mischer said this was only the beginning and he looks forward to future collaborations between the world’s two top film markets.

“I view this whole thing as kind of a first step – almost like a baby step,” Mischer said, adding, “There’s much more of a cooperative exchange going on now between the cinematic communities in China and those in the United States… This thing could catch on and it could really build into something more significant because you’ve got the two largest movie markets in the world here.”

Following an introduction by co-hosts Liu and Olivia Xu (who translated the English portions of the ceremony into Chinese), “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam took the stage and was the first to be decorated with a golden sash as he received the best global emerging actor award.

Hunnam said he’d love to shoot a sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s “Pacific Rim” and also explained that, though he’s currently filming the final season of “Sons of Anarchy,” “I really don’t know how it’s all going to play out.”

Del Toro was also recognized with the award for best global director and recalled visiting Hong Kong for the first time when he was 22.

“I thought, ‘One day I’ll put it in a movie,’” del Toro said of his experience in China. The helmer also expressed his interest in maintaining a cinematic partnership with China.

“As long as our partnership is one where we find common ground and we admire and learn from our differences, I think it could be incredibly enriching,” he said.

Del Toro also expressed his gratitude to the “vast and loving” Chinese audience, saying, “A film for a filmmaker is like a child. So it’s 80 million people saying they like my child.”

DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg was on hand to accept the best global animated film honors on behalf of “The Croods,” and discussed the studio’s entertainment complex to be built in Shanghai as well as the third installment of the “Kung Fu Panda” franchise, slated to premiere in December 2015.

Though she didn’t talk to the press, Berry did say a few words upon receiving her global icon award, calling to mind her visit to Shanghai a few years ago and the warm welcome she received from Chinese fans.

“I felt like I was an original Beatle when I got off that airplane,” Berry said. “I hope that I will continue to be able to make movies and entertain the Chinese audience and I’m so glad that we get to have an interpersonal relationship with all of you.”

Lifetime achievement honoree and Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer also kept his comments brief, but suggested, “Let’s call it the getting started award” when discussing his prize.

Orlando Bloom was honored with the global actor icon award and the British thesp expressed how “humbled” he felt, explaining, “I never thought I’d make films all over the world.”

Jeremy Renner was voted best global supporting actor, but thanked his Chinese fans via video message as he was unable to attend.

Jordana Brewster and Tyrese Gibson accepted the final award on behalf of Universal’s “Fast and Furious 6,” voted best global movie of the year. Both actors noted a change in the atmosphere on the set of the franchise’s seventh film following the death of co-star Paul Walker.

“It’s really hard for all of us to genuinely celebrate on the level that we all should be expected to because we didn’t do any of this without our brother and friend Paul Walker,” Gibson said. “Moments like this become bittersweet.”

The evening also featured three exclusive performances by “America’s Best Dance Crew” winners Jabbawockeez, martial artists the Shaolin Warriors and Summer Jikejunyi, winner of “The Voice” China.

It was a pleasant surprise for all of the guests at the American Airlines terminal recently.  As a special commemoration, American Airlines treated everyone at the Lax Los Angeles International Airport with a Lion Dance Performance. People quickly started recording on their telephones capturing photographs and videos from every angle.  The performance was a very last minute assembly to commemorate a special occasion.  Please take a look at some of the videos and photographs attached to this blog.

American Airlines Lion Dance Performance

Lion dance (simplified Chinese: 舞狮; traditional Chinese: 舞獅; pinyin: wǔshī) is a form of traditional dance in Chinese culture and other Asian countries in which performers mimic a lion’s movements in a lion costume. The lion dance is usually performed during the Chinese New Year and other Chinese traditional, cultural and religious festivals. It may also be performed at important occasions such as business opening events, special celebrations or wedding ceremonies, or may be used to honor special guests by the Chinese communities.

The Chinese lion dance is sometimes mistakenly referred to as dragon dance. An easy way to tell the difference is that a lion is normally operated by two dancers, while a dragon needs many people. Also, in a lion dance, the performers’ faces are only seen occasionally, since they are inside the lion. In a dragon dance, the performers’ faces can be easily seen since the dragon is held on poles. Chinese lion dance fundamental movements can be found in most Chinese martial arts.

There are two main forms of the Chinese lion dance, the Northern Lion and the Southern Lion. Both forms are commonly found in China, but around the world especially in South East Asia, the Southern Lion predominates as it was spread by the Chinese diaspora communities who are historically mostly of Southern Chinese origin. Versions of the lion dance are also found in Japan, Korea, Tibet and Vietnam. Another form of lion dance exists in Indonesian culture, but it may be of a different tradition and can be referred to as Singa Barong.

There has been an old tradition in China of dancers wearing masks to resemble animals or mythical beasts since antiquity, and performances described in ancient texts such as Shujing where wild beasts and phoenix danced may have been masked dances. In Qin Dynasty sources, dancers performing exorcism rituals were described as wearing bearskin mask, and it was also mentioned in Han Dynasty texts that “mime people” (象人) performed as fish, dragons, and phoenixes. However, lion is not native to China, and the Lion Dance therefore has been suggested to have originated outside of China from countries such as India or Persia, and introduced via Central Asia. According to ethnomusicologist Laurence Picken, the Chinese word for lion itself, shi (獅, written as 師 in the early periods), may have been derived from the Persian word šer. The earliest use of the word shizi meaning lion first appeared in Han Dynasty texts and had strong association with Central Asia (an even earlier but obsolete term for lion was suanni (狻麑 or 狻猊)), and lions were presented to the Han court by emissaries from Central Asia and the Parthian Empire. Detailed descriptions of Lion Dance appeared during the Tang Dynasty and it was already recognized by writers and poets then as a foreign dance, however, Lion dance may have been recorded in China as early as the third century AD where “lion acts” were referred to by a Three Kingdoms scholar Meng Kang (孟康) in a commentary on Hanshu. In the early periods it had association with Buddhism: it was recorded in a Northern Wei text, Description of Buddhist Temples in Luoyang (洛陽伽藍記), that a parade for a statue of Buddha of a temple was led by a lion to drive away evil spirits.

The school was founded and created by Walt Disney in the early 1960s and staffed by a diverse array of professionals.

The Lion Dance presentation was a unique surprise for all of the students who converged at the Cal Arts Common Space to promote creative connectivity during the International Education Week festival.
