Star Awards 2021 – Unveiling the Top 60 most popular artistes in Singapore

Singapore, 9 March 2021 – Mediacorp is thrilled to announce the Top 60 nominees of Star Awards 2021! Join us for a star-studded night as they compete for a coveted spot in the Top 10 Most Popular Female and Male Artistes. This is the most number of nominees to date, and the bumper crop is a reflection and acknowledgement of the work that the artistes have put in over the past two years. 

As we bring you a bigger Star Awards 2021 showcasing two years of productions and talents on 18 April, we hope that audiences will be delighted with the increase in the number of stars they can support and vote for.

To add to the excitement and anticipation, this year’s Star Awards will feature a backstage live marathon providing exclusive behind-the-scenes updates, interviews with artistes, as well as some surprises during the ceremony.

In the lead-up to the main programme, the 60 names were revealed through a virtual media conference held today at Mediacorp Theatre. These artistes represent the cream of the crop of the local Chinese entertainment scene, and were identified via a poll of 1,000 people representing a wide demograpic across Singapore’s population conducted by an accredited market research company. Please refer to Annex D for information on eligibility criteria for the Top 10 Most Popular Female and Male Artistes Awards.

Angeline Poh, Chief Customer & Corporate Development Officer, Mediacorp said, “We are excited to announce the Top 60 nominees for the Top 10 Female and Male Artistes in recognition of their talent and the hard work over the past two years. This award has been a key highlight for the annual Star Awards, and is closely watched by the public. Making it to this list is a testimony to the appeal of the artistes. We welcome fans to join the action by voting to support their favourite stars.”
