Golden Phoenix Awards

Golden Phoenix Awards (simplified Chinese: 金凤凰奖; traditional Chinese: 金鳳凰獎; pinyin: Jīnfènghuáng Jiăng), China's equivalent to the Screen Actors Guild Awards, is a bi-annual accolade given by the China Film Performance Art Academy to recognize outstanding performances in film. In 1987, the first annual awards ceremony held in Guangzhou.[1]

Because the Society Award is the only regular category that judges the actors' performances, there are multiple winners in the category. Honorary Awards are given to actors aged 60–70, while the Lifetime Achievement Award is given to actors who are over 80 years old. Since 2005, actors from Taiwan and Hong Kong have also eligible for awards.[2]

The statuette is in a shape of phoenix, designed by artist Han Meilin.[3]
