This year’s Star Awards will see 60 Mediacorp artistes vying for the coveted Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes and Top 10 Most Popular Male Artistes titles.

The figure is up from the usual 40 nominees as this year’s upsized awards ceremony will showcase two years of productions and talents after last year’s event didn't take place because of the pandemic.

The 60 names were revealed on Tuesday (Mar 9) through a virtual media conference. They were identified via a poll of 1,000 people representing a wide demographic across Singapore’s population, which was conducted by an accredited market research company, said Mediacorp.

Said Angeline Poh, Chief Customer & Corporate Development Officer of Mediacorp: “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.”

Online voting to determine the winners will start on Mar 10 at 12pm and end on Apr 18 at 8pm. This is open to all voters with a valid Mediacorp account and is limited to one vote for each award category per day per voter.

Results will be announced live during the 2021 Star Awards, which will take place on Apr 18.
