On April 14, 2020, the State Administration of radio and television issued the notice of the general office of the State Administration of radio and television on organizing to participate in the award of the 32nd China TV play flying sky Award. The selection scope shown in the notice is: from October 1, 2017 to December 31, 2019, TV series broadcasted on CCTV or local satellite TV channels, including those first broadcast on national key video websites. This is the first time that the award will include the TV series premiered on the national key video websites in the selection scope, but it does not mean that all online dramas are qualified to participate in the evaluation. The participating plays still need to obtain relevant certificates such as the issuance license of domestic TV plays.
The Beijing news once made statistics on the online dramas broadcast from October 1, 2017 to December 31, 2019. Among them, Qingnian, Ruyi biography, Yanxi strategy, hejuhuating, twelve hours of Changan, ice breaking action, etc. all have TV play distribution licenses and can participate in the flying sky award and Magnolia Award. However, there is no TV play distribution license for such popular online dramas as petition, zhenhun, original sin and full-time expert. In theory, they cant participate in the flying sky award and Magnolia Award. However, the expansion of Golden Eagle Award in the scope of participation or the opportunity for these online dramas to stand on the stage of mainstream award ceremony.
