The Top 100 global celebrities include celebrities in the fields of
film, television, music and public image. These celebrities have
performed exceptionally well in past years, both in terms of
professional achievement and public good. Many celebrities who promoted
the "Me Too" campaign are also on the list, such as Lady Gaga and Hugh
Jackman. In addition, the Huading Awards Group launched the "Declaration
of Self-Discipline of Hollywood Celebrities and Social Responsibility."
This declaration represents the voice of Hollywood's positive energy.

Previous Huading Awards attendees include Halle Berry, Hilary Swank,
Jackie Chan, Jeremy Irons, Mel Gibson, Natalie Portman, Nicolas Cage,
Nicole Kidman, Orlando Bloom and Quentin Tarantino.

"We are delighted to be returning to Hollywood," added Mr. Wang. "The
Huading 100 List and Awards represent who most people in the world
regard as the most popular entertainment celebrities with positive
personal brands. And with so many celebrities receiving such negative
publicity, they come at a most propitious time."
