Golden Eagle Goddess 2006-2018, Dilireba is the 7th actress to take the crown

6th Golden Eagle Goddess Dilraba Dilmurat
With the 12th Golden Eagle Festival just one day away, the internet debate comes to an end now that Dilraba Dilmurat has been announced as this year's Golden Eagle Goddess. To be honest, it doesn't seem like the honor has anything to do with the candidate's achievements, but rather a prestigious club for a chosen few. 

The first Golden Eagle Goddess was selected during the 6th Golden Eagle Festival in 2006. As the festival is held once every two years, this year marks the coronation of the seventh Golden Eagle Goddess.

  1. makes the most sense she's been steadily building her popularity over the last couple years so shes bound to have a bigger fanbase. Yang zi just shot to fame(even tho shes been in the business a while) and with a hit or two i definitely see her as the next contender in 2 years

    1. Seems more like a popularity contest and yang zi is not yet that popular.

    2. Some of that past winners of the popularity contest are no longer that popular.

    3. I always saw it as popularity plus ratings. While Reba is more popular than YangZi, YangZi does have much better drama ratings.

  2. yang zi isnt that popular yet but ashes of love definitely has given her a leg up. With a few more good projects( and looking at her upcoming projects i can tell they are going to garner a decent amount of success) she could get this award in 2 years

  3. Her fans base is crazy considering she’s a mediocre actress.

    1. Yes I agree. Yang Zi is a better actress than her. Dilreba although pretty and funny her acting is very bad. I couldn’t finish The Flames Daughter or Sweet Dreams. But popularity is popularity. You don’t need acting skills these days, just looks and good drama choices to make it.

    2. Yes, that's true. Especially considering that she's only debuted for 5 years. Goes to show that being an "actress" requires more than just acting, it's a brand. And in her case, acting talent apparently isn't even necessary.

  4. Every year, most of these chosen ladies are always complaints. I’m so over with this crowning thing already.
    But at least DLRB didn’t cheat or anything, she is pretty and has fans. There were those that were not too pretty and had no fans, I don’t understand how they even got selected.

    1. Your words imply that other contestant have cheated. How can someone "cheat?"

    2. Based on what you said, meaning that this award only for those who are good lookings and sexi WITHOUT acting skills??? *What a big joke!* LOLS. Whether you want to accept the reality or not, dilreba won the awards are based on popularity and fans base, which are not related with her acting skills or performance. I also like dilreba, she looks mature, sexi and has flirty looks as well. But, if you ask me to choose who should I vote for acting skills, I will no doubt and definitelt choose Yang Zi!!!
      How did you know dilreba didnt cheat? Maybe she didnt, but You never know what "behind the scene"arrangement of this festival.
      How the admin and strong backing or sponsor plays behind of these awards.

  5. Love Diralba. Well deserved. I was rooting for Yang Zi. I fell head over heels with her after Ashes of Love. Great actresses. Very pretty too. Perhaps in 2 more years she may achieve it. Go for it! :)

  6. Many people are upset Yang Zi didn't win. But it is apparent that Yang Zi have so much problems with gaining fame even after taking main roles such as Noble Aspiration and Long Zhu Chuan Qi. Even Destiny of White Snake came out at the same time as Ashes of Love but people did not praise Destiny of White Snake and only Ashes of Love. Not saying that she sucks at acting and have been failing dramas after dramas, it was really because the projects she did were just so bad. Even with acting skills, nothing can be done when the scripts are so horrible. Only until, because Ashes of Love finally have a better storyline that she get famous.

    I'm getting annoyed how people slam DLRB about bad acting all the time now. She's not too far from Yang Zi, both ladies got such terrible projects the same. Pretend if Yang Zi was actually the main lead of The Flame's Daughter instead, Yang Zi would just get criticized the same because that is just how bad the projects were. The storylines were extremely childish and worst is it was not even interesting but just a bore. I have no interest in the Pillow Case Mystery because I already did not like that Feng Jiu story in the Ten Miles from the start, it does look to me like DLRB is going to continue doing all these roles where she will be selling beauty and not a professional storyline (I wouldn't say bad acting because the storyline probably wouldn't even exist for anybody to act).

    1. You’re wrong. Dilreba is the weaker actress. She has that flirty look when she’s supposed to be serious. TKW, TFD, and SD were all leading roles and she sucked in them. Only her fans support her blindly.

      Delete
    2. I have a feeling Pillow Book will be a huge hit though. Ten Miles kickstarted the romance xianxia hype; Ashes of Love followed up. Moreover, Pillow Book has the hype directly from Ten Miles with it being the sequel.

      Delete
    3. OP tbh a lot of the stuff you said are just factually wrong. First of all White Snake was pulled off the air by SARFT so it did not fail, it was just not allowed to air due to problems with one of the love lines.

      YangZi's past dramas have actually been pretty successful, more so than Dilireba not that this is saying much. At least rating wise. You have to consider production and money that went into a project compared to returns. And YZ is considered a really good actress while Dilireba is much weaker acting wise. For the past two years DLR's studio has been trying hard to get her a hit drama and failing. While her dramas dont do bad, they dont do good either. Either TV ratings or online views are just below or average. YangZi is not a powerhouse but you can say Ashes of Love was her drama and it was a hit. And it had much less hype and no promotion compared to all recent DLR's dramas. These are facts. However, I would be surprised if this popularity followed YZ into her next project. While she is a really good actress, she keeps picking similar roles and people are getting tired of it.

      I dont think most have a problem with Dilireba winning. Even if she doesnt have a hit drama and is a weaker actress. She is pretty popular and that makes up for her weakness in the other areas. Everyone recognizes this. Not all popular celebrities are good acting wise or have hit dramas. I don't think AB has a hit drama but she is super popular. If anything I think DLR will get her hit drama eventually, she is very hard working and seems set on finding a hit project.

      Also to the anon above me Ten Miles did not kickstart the romance xianxia type. It has been going on for a while. There were a lot of big hits, even bigger than TMOPB before TMOPB even started filming.

    4. I wish people spoke more with facts, and not what they think. If you compare Dilraba and Yang Zi's projects where they are the female lead, Dilraba has 3 projects which passed 1.0 in average, one project with 0.98, one project with 0.73 and one project with 0.40. This is not counting projects where she is second female lead like Diamond Lover or Eternal Love.

      Yang Zi has two projects which passed 1.0, with the rest with numbers like 0.53, 0.86, 0.44. This is not counting dramas like Noble Aspirations and Ode to Joy where she is second or fourth female lead.

      So Dilraba might be a weaker actress and doesn't have a notable lead role but her ratings record are not any weaker than Yang Zi's. Moreover, her fandom popularity definitely surpasses her.

      In terms of web drama views, The Flame's Daughter is also alot higher than The Destiny of White Snake.

      Also, the anon above is slightly wrong. Journey of Flower is the one that started the xianxia romance hype. Before JOF, there were xianxias like Swords of Legends, Xuanyuan Sword, Chinese Paladin which became popular but those were more male-centric and had more action.

      Delete
    5. Agree JOF started the romance hype. Chinese Paladin is xianxia but it has a clear storyline with action. The xianxia today are solely about the leads being pretty and shipping a cute couple together.

    6. I'm not a fan of either but YZ >>>>>>> Reba in many ways. First acting and 2nd she has many good projects. Ash isn't the first and only. Have you heard of Battle of Changsha? Check it douban rating.

      And this year she has Ash when Reba has nothing. Reba isn't the lead in TMOPB. That YM and Mark's drama. Don't get confused! Reba has no representative work under her name as lead yet. And her acting isn't recognized either. Winning popularity is fine but she won 3 awards including the best actress award. That make this year GEA a big joke right now

      I'm not saying YZ should win either. But between the 2, YZ would get less hatred. The fans of both fandoms should sit down

  7. I am not a DLRB fan, I can't finish any of her dramas, but she deserves to be a GED. This is not about your acting skills. You need strong industry connections and backing than your acting skills to make it in the ent-world and she has that. She's been consistently and heavily promoted by Jaywalk these 5 years. Yangmi is basically holding her hands to promote, but now her fans were fighting with YM fans a while ago. Anyway Golden Eagle Award is held every 2 years and RB has Pretty Li Hui Zhen and 1001 during that time on Mango TV (this award show is sponsored by Mango TV). So that gives her good exposure and gain tons of rabid fans compared to other actresses for the last two years. On the other hand, Yang Zi only has Qiu Ying Ying character from Ode To Joy for the last two years. Ashes of Love “Jin Mi” character will be nominated for upcoming Golden Eagle Award in 2 years. YZ also has one new modern drama to air and she’s filming one currently right now with Ma Tian Yu. Very likely both dramas will get picked up by Mango TV. These goddesses are chosen by the insider in the industry starting with Tang Yan.

    One thing for sure for Yang Zi fans is that she will win at least one acting award if not two on October 14 night. I am happier for her for getting recognition for her acting if anything. She deserves it. Anticipating for her next fluffy romance drama Go Go Squid!

  8. I’m not surprised. The award is organised by hunan telev., isn’t it? 2016-2018 all Yang Zi’s dramas had never brodcast by Hunan telev. Also her works next year will be brodcast by others. While Dilraba had shows brodcasted by Hunan.

  9. So, in conclusion, in this industry, first, good looks and sexi, second, strong backings and sponsors. For acting skill, you can either have it or not as long as you have number one and two.
    Yang Zi, I am looking forward to see as Golden Eagle Goddess in 2020! Jia youuu!!!! You deserve the best!

    1. Not exactly, as of I see it, First = good looks (either sexy or cute, equally liked). Second = strong backing and sponsors. THIRD (most important) = is to pay your goddam ratings plus reviews to the very very top whether your show is good or bad because the thing is.... you are famous and a big rating queen so who would find out and not believe your star power?

      2 years is a long time. Depends if she still get more good projects. By then, other rising actresses could be winning if they get casted in better projects. Or, I actually don't know how the heck their logic works because they kept awarding shows that are already 2 years old, like awarding PLHZ in 2018 when aired a long long time ago already... Why wait 2 years then? If in 2020 they are looking back at what's best in 2018 then maybe AOL might win.

  10. You seem to be in to gossips and tabloids that you would make articles on Yangmi's weird photos or the rumors about her marriage but you haven't posting about the extremely negative reaction to this award which cause a huge storm.
    Your bias is getting more and more obvious!
    I think it's time to unfollow your page.
