Zhao Ting won the 2021 Academy Award for Best Director.

At the beginning of last month, she was still the “Pride of China” in the mouth of Chinese official media, but now, the news of her historic Oscar winning is facing strict censorship and blockade in China.

The 39-year-old Chinese female director Zhao Ting won the 2021 Academy Award for Best Director with the film “Nomadland” (“Nomadland”/”Wandering World”). She became the first non-white woman to receive this honor. . But the news no longer makes Beijing’s politicians happy.

The authorities even took measures to block the news. On Weibo, “Zhao Ting”, “Wuyizhidi” and “Oscar” seem to have become sensitive words, and related online posts have been removed on a large scale.

At the press conference of the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the afternoon of Monday (April 26), when a reporter asked whether Zhao Ting and his film had been censored, the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Wang Wenbin said, “What you mentioned is not a diplomatic issue. “
