The China TV Golden Eagle Award (Chinese: 中国电视金鹰奖), commonly known in China as the Golden Eagle Awards, is one of three main national award ceremonies recognising excellence in the Chinese television industry. The award is presented by the China Television Artists Association.[1] It is considered to be one of the most prestigious television awards, alongside the Feitian Awards and Magnolia Awards.[2] The Golden Eagle Awards are a biennial awards ceremony, held on alternate years with the Feitian Awards since 2005.


Candidates used to be nominated by members of the China Television Artists Association (CTAA) and managers of local television stations. The nationwide audience would vote by filling in a form published in the Popular TV Magazine (大众电视), and the nominee with the most number of votes would clinch the top awards.[3] Each category had three winning candidates, with the one having the highest number of votes clinching the "Best Award" (最佳奖) while the other two would each receive an "Outstanding Award" (优秀奖). If the nominee with the highest number of votes does not win more than 30% of the total share, the "Best Award" will not be given and instead all three nominees each will take an "Outstanding Award".

Since 2000 the awards ceremony has been held in Hunan province, and the awards ceremony has been preceded by the Golden Eagle TV Arts Festival, which was created by Hunan Television. The festival's awards include the Best Performing Arts Award, and the Most Popular Actor and Actress awards. The Best Performing Arts Award is given to the Audience's Choice nominee with the highest number of votes in the CTAA ballot[4], while the popularity awards are given at the end of the Golden Eagle Awards after several rounds of online voting.[5]

The "Outstanding Award" for actor and actress categories was renamed to "Audience's Choice for Actor" or "Audience's Choice for Actress", and each category had about one to five nominees winning this award. There are three ballots - one for the judges, one for the members of the CTAA and one for the nationwide audience. The candidate who takes the most number of votes in the CTAA ballot wins the Best Performing Arts Actor or Actress award as well as the Audience's Choice Award, and is crowned Best Actor (视帝) or Actress (视后). The other candidates only win the Audience's Choice for Actor or Actress award.[6]

In 2016, there was a major overhaul. The documentary and literary arts programme categories were cancelled, leaving only 9 television award categories[7], and the Best Actor or Actress title have since been given exclusively to the winners who receive the Audience's Choice award.[8]
