Since the early mainland and Hong Kong did not set up similar film competitions, the Golden Horse Award has long been the most popular film event in the Chinese film industry since the 1970s. Before the 1980s, due to the political antagonism between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait, the Golden Horse Award was awarded mainly to Taiwanese and Hong Kong films.

For a long time, the Golden Horse Awards had focused on the encouragement of Taiwanese and Hong Kong films before 2000 because of the different political standpoints between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait. But the decline of Taiwan’s film industry and the loss of Hong Kong’s film workers have gradually opened the awards to mainland Chinese films and to participate in competitions. In recent years, more and more mainland films have entered the competition units of Golden Horse Awards, such as the 2016 Golden Horse Film Festival, which has won many awards.
