Celebrate The Moment with Star Awards 2019 as it marks its Silver Jubilee with two brand-new awards

Singapore, 8 February 2019 – Celebrate “The Moment” at Star Awards 2019, as the biggest event of local entertainment marks its Silver Jubilee this year. Journey with the stars through a nostalgic trail of iconic moments in its history and embrace the future with them. To be held on 14 April 2019 at the MES Theatre at Mediacorp, the highly anticipated show will also feature two brand-new awards to celebrate more local talent and productions.

Themed The Moment, the 25th edition of Star Awards will bring audiences through an emotional ride of laughter and tears, with a showcase of human stories and memorable scenes from the awards show since its inauguration in 1994. Viewers can also look forward to immersive audiovisual effects and instantaneous highlights live on digital screens – micro “moments” that coalesce into The Moment. As always, local and international celebrities will continue to lend their lustre as award presenters and guest performers for a glamourous evening of entertainment.

Doreen Neo, Chief Content Officer, Mediacorp, said: “Even as we look back on the medley of milestones that have brought us to where we are today as the definitive source of local entertainment, this year’s ceremony also introduces exciting new categories that foretell the future of broadcasting.”

To celebrate and recognise the industry’s best in more ways, two brand-new awards will be added to the show – Best Short-form Drama Serial and Best Short-form Variety Programme [1]. These awards for short-form programmes acknowledge the increasing importance of over-the-top streaming as well as the changing viewing preference for programmes of varied lengths in an ever-evolving multi-platform mediascape.

Irene Lim, Chief Customer Officer, Mediacorp, said: “The induction of the new awards is indicative of the myriad ways that Mediacorp is embracing the future and catering to the needs and preferences of the next generation of viewers.”

In total, 18 key awards will be given out at the awards ceremony, held immediately after the Walk of Fame (refer to Annex 1 for telecast details).
