上個禮拜,金馬獎才剛剛謝幕,幾家歡樂幾家愁,那些得獎人上台時,免不了都會感謝跟他們一起努力打拼的工作人員、賞識他的恩師、鼓勵他的愛人、支持他的親人。在這樣的典禮上,可以看到每個人在自己的崗位上認真努力的成果獲得肯定,那種感覺是不可言喻的。除了電影相關的獎項,還有其它的重大獎項如諾貝爾這樣的殊榮,更是至上的榮耀。得到諾貝爾獎的人,通常都是發明家或是對社會甚至是這個世界有重大影響或貢獻的人。這些人發明的東西或是做的事情讓這個世界變得更加美好,就像是發明了光電效應的愛因斯坦,讓世界更加的明亮。

 

如果你可以頒一個獎項給某個人,你會給誰呢? 我的話,我應該會頒發給我的父母,因為,從小到大的養育,一路走來真的很辛苦,身為父母親,還必須奉獻出自己寶貴的生命,去陪伴小孩、教育小孩、保護小孩、讓我們可以健康的成長,真的非常偉大。

Who would you give an award to and why?

Here's what people in London said:

I think this would be my parents. Firstly,for them being always an inspiration to myself, for motivating me to work hard to achieve my goals and for always supporting me in good and bad times and being there for me whenever I need them. So definitely my parents, my Mum and Dad.

 

What kind of award would you give them,like an Oscar or something?

There are so many ways you can award your parents, but probably I would award them by just making them proud for who I became at the moment and for really aiming to achieve all my goals and I think that would be the best reward for them. For them to be proud of myself and be proud of my sisters.

 

I would like to give one to Nelson Mandela.His capacity to forgive - I think wecan all bring that into our own lives as well. That's just a personal attribute out of his other excellent leadership qualities.

 

I would give it posthumously to Gutenberg,for the invention of the printing press, obviously. I think we can't even,begin to imagine a world without books and the transfer of knowledge in the fashion that the printing press and the spread of books, that that has basically allowed.

Let’s dig in!

 



People in London like to award their parents as well.What kind of award would they wish to give to their parents? It is by making them proud of themselves. I guess that is what every parent wish for. Parents just hope that their children will grow up well, be healthy and do something good to the world, no matter what they do.
