Her good friend and co-star Mark Zhao was less lucky, losing the Best Actor award to an 11-year-old new actor.
Taiwanese actress Ivy Chen clinches Taipei Film Festival's Best Actress award for her role in the movie Hear Me.
The relatively new actress, whose turn in the popular drama series Black & White propelled her to fame, was obviously unprepared as she fumbled over her acceptance speech on stage.
Later at a celebratory dinner, Ivy revealed that she was fiddling with her phone when the award winner was announced. In fact, she was so caught off guard that she forgot to thank her mother and brother.
As for the prize money of TWD100,000 (S$5000), Ivy said that she would do what her Black & White co-star, Mark Zhao, did and donate the prize money for the production of the movie version of Black & White.
One of the hot favourites for this year's awards is the movie Monga, but lead actors Mark Zhao and Ethan Ruan lost the Best Actor Award to 11-year-old Bi Xiao Hai.
The movie's director Doze Niu who was tipped to win the Best Director award also went home empty-handed.
Congratsss to IVY!!! Great job!!! Looking forward to more of your dramas!
