Machi founder Jeffrey Huang (黃立成) and 17 Media have live streamed the Golden Feather Awards (GFA) for the first time. Live streaming artists have gained massive popularity online, which inspired Huang to foster this collaboration. The 1st GFA were broadcast live via the 17 Media’s app, with over 1.7M viewers on mobile devices. Having attracted almost 5M GFA viewers and around 1M average concurrent viewers, this is 17 Media’s best record in the new media brand’s history. This also demonstrates how influential reality hosts can be.
The first live-streamed GMA showcased high standards rivaling those of the Golden Horse Awards (GHA), the Golden Bell Awards (GBA), and the Golden Melody Awards (GMA). Entertainment diva Matilda Tao (陶晶瑩) was invited to host the awards, and world-renowned pop artists including Korea’s new-gen diva group EXID and the “bar bar bar” dance creators Crayon Pop were also invited to present the awards and perform. Crayon Pop even contributed their reunion performance to the GFA. GMA black horse nominee Eve Ai (艾怡良) and 17 Media’s artist 祖祖 sang together on stage, which is one of the highlights of the event showing a cross-platform collaboration between rising artists.
Not only 17 Media’s popular streamers, The 1st GFA also attracted many celebrities to show up at the awards in support of the event. Celebrities including Sunny Wang and his wife Dominique Choy (Dizzy Dizzo) and popular idol Jasper Liu were invited to present awards at the GFA, symbolizing the passing down of a torch between generations as the entertainment world is witnessing the rise of new media. “Taiwan has the GHA to encourage filmmakers, and the GMA to support singers. I look forward to cultivate Taiwan’s reality show artists, and by way of using platforms like the GFA an 17 Media, these talented reality artists can be discovered, and they could very well be on their way to achieving greatness in the Asian entertainment industry.”
