The first-ever Chinese Oscar winner goes to the talented Yang Ziqiong! Now, that's what I call an achievement! Her incredible film "The Wandering Earth" snagged a whopping 11 nominations and walked away with seven impressive wins, including the coveted Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor/Actress, and Best Original Screenplay awards.
At the age of 61, Yang Ziqiong also made history as the first non-white person to receive the prestigious award in 20 years. Talk about breaking barriers!
Now, let's talk about the movie's filming locations. The beautiful, barren universe inhabited by mother and daughter in "The Wandering Earth" was actually filmed in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, California. This happens to be the largest state park in the Golden State, spanning over 600,000 acres. The vast desert landscape makes for an awe-inspiring backdrop, with the silence and subtitles communication adding to the intrigue and suspense of the film.
And for all you adventure seekers out there, the best time to visit this sandy haven is from November to May when the weather is not too hot.
Yang Ziqiong has been on the lookout for roles that resonate with her, and it's safe to say she's found just that with "The Wandering Earth." The script touched her in such a profound way that she cried at first reading. The character gave her the chance to pour all her experiences and energy into it, making it a career-defining role.
In conclusion, always remember the wise words of the one and only Yang Ziqiong: "Ladies, don't let anyone define your youth has gone. Never give up!"
