Looks like things are going Selina Jen’s way. The S.H.E member, who has bravely returned to showbiz after recovering from a burn accident in 2010, recently announced that a solo album and solo concert are in the works.
With the 49th Golden Bell Awards just around the corner, the question of who will be hosting the prestigious event was finally answered when Selina and Taiwanese entertainer Sam Tseng were announced to be the emcees of the annual event.
The 32-year-old was reportedly surprised after finding out about the appointment, declaring that “it feels unreal and as though I’m dreaming”, gushing that she looks forward to collaborating with Sam. The two have previously worked together to host Taiwanese variety show Super Citizen and were lauded for their great chemistry on-set.
The Golden Bell Awards is considered the Taiwan equivalent of the Emmys and will take place on October 18 and 25 for the broadcast and television categories respectively. All nominations will be announced on September 18. Sam and Selina will host the second show.
This year’s ceremony will be produced and broadcast by China Television and be held in Taipei’s Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall.
Sam hosted the glitzy awards show with fellow television host Janet Hsieh two years ago but the pair was slammed for their apparent lack of chemistry, with Janet being blasted for her aloofness. He also hosted the ceremony four years back.
The 46-year-old quipped, (I’ll take the appointment) with a calm mindset and will strive to give the audiences an eye-opening experience while treading carefully to remain in Selina’s husband’s good books.”
