The “Most Popular” stars in 2014
Surprise, surprise! We see a major shake-up this year in the Top 10 Most Popular Female and Male artiste nomination list – especially in the male artiste’s category.
Due to the exit of Dasmond Koh, Huang Wen Yong, Terence Cao, Thomas Ong and Yao Wei Long from this year’s nomination list, and Bryan Wong and Chen Hanwei’s graduation – after winning 10 Most Popular awards – to the All-Time Favourite Artiste category, there are now seven new entrants on this list.
Apart from veteran artiste Gurmit Singh’s successful return to the Top 10 category, the other six male actors are first-time nominees, consisting of a mixture of up-and-coming faces like Edwin Goh, Ian Fang, Xu Bin, Desmond Tan, Zhang Zhen Huan and radio deejay Justin Ang, who recently hosted the TV50 Countdown Show on Ch5 and Ch8.
Over to the list of female artistes, there are less changes this year with only two new additions -taking over the spots previously occupied by Ann Kok (whose contract is expiring this March and would not be renewed) and Lin Mei Jiao. Thanks to an increase in exposure on TV last year, Malaysian-Chinese actress Chris Tong and Ya Hui have each bagged themselves a spot – for the first time – in this coveted Top 40 Most Popular category.
