The 54th Golden Bell Awards will take place at the National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall tomorrow. Hit TV series The World Between Us is leading the nominees with 14 nods, including Best Television Series, as well as Chris Wu for Best Actor and Alyssa Chia for Best Actress.

The other four nominees for Best Television Series are: Utopia for the 20s, Survival, A Taste to Remember and A Taiwanese Tale of Two Cities. The last one about a Taipei Chinese medicine doctor and a San Francisco engineer swapping homes boasts six nominations, including scriptwriter Laura Lin and her colleagues for Best Writing for Television Series.

The Lifetime Achievement Award goes to entertainer Swallow Chang. The 71-year-old artist entered showbiz as a child star at the age of five, and has been dubbed an “encyclopedia” of Taiwanese TV history. During her distinguished career that spans over six decades, she has become known for discovering new talent, such as TV host Mickey Huang, who will host the ceremony tomorrow.
