Scandal at the 47th Golden Butterfly Awards ceremony
On Sunday, December 5, the 47th annual Golden Butterfly award ceremony took place, which traditionally generated an interest in the outfits of the stars and another scandal, which has been a constant feature of the event. What’s happened?
This year, the TV channel D decided not to broadcast the entire ceremony, limiting itself to presenting the main awards, which were given out in a great hurry, which shocked Turkish viewers. Usually, awards for the best TV series and the best male and female role are given at the very end of the ceremony, but the organizers of the Golden Butterfly decided to present them first so as not to lose the rating. After that, the broadcast continued on the small channel teve2.
The winners in the main nominations are:
Best Actresses: Ezgi Mola and Merve Dizdar;
Best Actor: Çağlar Ertuğrul;
Best TV Show: Chrysalis / Camdaki Kiz;
Best Romantic Comedy Actress: Ayça Ayşin Turan;
Best Romantic Comedy Actor: Aytaç Şaşmaz;
Best Romantic Comedy: Love is in the air;
Best Couple in a Series: Hande Erçel and Kerem Bürsin;
Best Music of the TV Series: Apartment of the Innocents;
Best Screenplay: Berkun Oya for the Netflix series Ethos;
Best Director: Çağrı Vila Lostuvalı and Çiğdem Bozali (Apartment of the Innocents);
Best Digital Series: Ethos;
The stars of the romantic comedy Love is in the air Hande Erçel and Kerem Bürsin received two awards, but they never came. The official reason is that the actors had a shoot.
However, the biggest scandal happened when the award was presented to the best actors. As previously reported, the votes of the jury and the audience were split and the “Solomon’s Decision” was made: the awards for Best Actress and Best Actor were split between two actresses and two actors. In the nomination “Best Actress”, two actresses, Ezgi Mola and Merve Dizdar, received awards. However, when the award was presented to the best actor, only Çağlar Ertuğrul took the stage. Rumors immediately spread that the second actor, who was supposed to receive the Golden Butterfly, simply refused to participate in the ceremony and receive the award.
Çağlar Ertuğrul added fuel to the fire. During the speech of thanks, he abruptly interrupted the monologue, turned back, making a reference to the case of Tamer Karadagli and Nihal Yalçin. Recall that at the Golden Orange award ceremony, due to a lengthy and politically engaged speech of Nihal, Tamer Karadagli, who was behind the actress, showed his displeasure in every possible way, and then interrupted her. Çağlar joked that someone is behind him and is unhappy. The presenter of the ceremony, Cem Davran, responded: “This is not one of these awards ceremony”.
However, users of social networks did not appreciate Çağlar’s joke and staged a flash mob with the slogan, “We will not watch the series Organization while this actor is filming in it.” The hashtag hit the # 1 spot on Twitter trends. In response to dissatisfaction of the audience, Çağlar Ertuğrul hastened to justify himself, saying that he loves his brother Tamer very much, and it was just a joke and nothing more.
It seems that the 47th Golden Butterfly Award ceremony did not break the long tradition of scandals, squabbles and showdowns that have accompanied this event for several years.
