2018 Huading Awards (華鼎獎頒獎禮) was conducted in AsiaWorld Expo on 9th November 2018. Although the hot favourite, Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) was absent, but Wu Jinyan (吳謹言) won Best Actress (Ancient Drama) [中國古代題材電視劇最佳女演員] based on Story of Yanxi Palace (延禧攻略) drama. She felt excited upon delivering her thank you speech on the stage.

Subsequently during an interview, Jinyan continued to feel excited and said: “I feel quite excited as it is my first award in the industry. I should be placing the trophy in the company.” She emphasised the award belonged to all staff working in Story of Yanxi Palace series and would be filming drama in Shanghai for some time. Hence, Jinyan would keep the trophy with her temporarily. She added she would be celebrating with the team on the same night: “I really want to celebrate the victory with the film producer, Yu Zheng (于正) for Story of Yanxi Palace drama, but he is currently busy working in Hengdian.” Asking if she wished the series won additional awards, Jinyan replied she felt happy when nominated and hoped to shoot good drama for everybody.
