The S.H.E. member was nominated at the 9th Golden Eagle Award in China despite a year of inactivity
The nominee list for China's prestigious Golden Eagle Awards was
revealed recently and Selina Jen came under fire for being nominated for
Best Female Actress despite being absent from the acting industry over
the past year.
After suffering third-degree burns on the set of I Have a Date with Spring
in 2010, the actress has been nursing herself back to health. Some
speculate that her nomination is a form of "compensation" towards Selina
for the accident.
Hunan Satellite TV which is in charge of the event responded by saying,
"Even though Selina has been absent for a year, it has not affected her
placing in audiences' hearts. In fact, many people have called her
nomination the best way to thank her for her hard work - her presence at
the opening ceremony will be a good way to welcome her back."
Selina has responded to the news of the nomination, saying, "(I'm) a
little surprised and am still processing it." Towards the unwavering
support from her fans, she expressed, "I'll definitely work hard and if I
win the award, I'll lose weight!"
