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 an bi-annually accolade given by the China Film Performance Art Academy to recognize outstanding performances by its members. In 1987, the first annual awards ceremony held in Guangzhou.[1]

Because Society Award is the only regular category to the actors' performance of the bi-annual, there are multiple winners in the category. Honorary Award is given to live actors who aged 60–70, Lifetime Achievement Award is given to live actors who aged more than 80.Since 2005, actors from Taiwan and Hong Kong are also eligible for awards.[2]

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