The next Star Awards (SA) is set to take place on Apr. 18, 2021.

Themed Connect! (星起点), it will showcase two years of productions in one ceremony.

SA2020 was cancelled by Mediacorp due to the Covid-19 situation last year.

Mediacorp announced that a total of 20 awards will be presented at SA2021, including a newly added award — the Best Radio Programme.

The number of nominees will be increased to seven for most award categories, up from the usual number of five.

This is to better reflect the number of eligible nominees, given that there are two years' worth of productions.

  2. Best Entertainment Programme 最佳综艺节目
  3. Best Entertainment Special Programme 最佳综艺特备节目
  4. Best Infotainment Programme 最佳资讯节目
