Actor Ni Dahong won the Best Actor for his lovely and hateful role Su Daqiang in ALL IS WELL. He thanked many of his partners and said "It was you who pushed me to this peak". When the host asked him if he had anything to say to the "children", Ni Dahong instantly came back to Su Daqiang's identity: "I want to drink filter coffee!" The appearance of this classic line made the audience laugh.
