Aloysius Pang, Zheng Geping Shut Out From Star Awards Most Popular Male Artiste Nominations

Are you as shocked as we are?

The Top 48 Most Popular Artistes list for Star Awards 2017 is out, and surprise, surprise! Popular actor Aloysius Pang and Singapore’s favourite hunkle Zheng Geping DID NOT make the cut.

This is not the first time Aloy has missed out on the Most Popular Male Artistes noms. The 26-year-old hogged headlines in 2015 when he was shut out of the Top 20 nominations. The following year proved to be better for the boyish-looking actor, as he was nominated and went on to take home the Top 10 Most Popular Male Artiste title. Zheng Geping’s snub also comes as a shock as he has been nominated consecutively for the past eight years, and won seven times. 

Unlike in the last two decades, this year’s Most Popular Artistes nominations boast a different format. A Mediacorp spokesperson explains: “2017 presents a new format where viewers see a live program called The Road to Star Awards 2017 in the three weeks leading to the main awards ceremony, with one show a week starting from March 26. The game changer this year lies in the most anticipated award — the Top 10 Most Popular Male/Female Artistes Award. Voting will be open to 48 nominees (24 Male and 24 Female) instead of the usual 40 nominees, and every episode [counting down to the main show on Apr 16] will reveal the nominees in the bottom 8."

"Fans and the public are urged to continue voting for and supporting their favorite celebrities to keep them on top. In the third week, the top 40 nominees (20 Male and 20 Female) will then progress to the main show where the final 20 artistes (10 Male and 10 Female) will be awarded the Top 10 Most Popular Male/Female award.”
