After a one-year hiatus (no thanks, COVID-19), the Star Awards is back, and bigger than ever before. This year, the awards will take place on April 18 and a total of 20 awards will be presented.

One new thing to look out for: Each category (apart from the popularity awards and the Best Entertainment Special Programme category) will now have seven nominations, up from the usual five. Since Star Awards 2020 didn’t happen (it will be combined with this year’s ceremony instead), the decision was made to increase the number of nominees for a large majority of award categories, to better reflect the number of eligible nominees.

Angeline Poh, Chief Customer & Corporate Development Officer of Mediacorp, says: “In recognition of the numerous quality productions and great performances by talented artistes over the last two years, we have made the decision to increase the number of eligible nominees to seven for most award categories. This ensures that all deserving productions and talents have a shot at competing for the coveted awards.” 

There’s also the creation of the Best Radio Programme Award this year. The award is dedicated to honouring the best in local radio, and also coincides with the 85th anniversary of radio broadcasting in Singapore.

Star Awards 2021 will first kick off at 3.30pm on meWATCH, with a seven-hour live commentary marathon, where viewers will get exclusive peeks into backstage preparations, interviews with artistes, live streaming of the ceremony and more.

The Walk of Fame segment will start at 5pm before the main ceremony which the organisers promise to be a “new one-of-a-kind show” to be held at a yet to be revealed location.
