This year saw precedents in Star Awards history: it was the second ceremony in Star Awards history that the ceremony was held outside the Caldecott Hill since the 1996 ceremony, where it was instead held on a pub at St James Power Station (a pub near VivoCity); it was also the first Star Awards ceremony (of the only seven) to be awarded the Best Variety Special in 2007.

Prelude Episode

An eight-week half-hour series, titled Star Awards Up-close premiered on Tuesdays 8:30 pm from 17 October until 5 December, focusing on the award show leading up to the actual show on 10 December, along with presentation of 'side awards' (not an actual award). The weekly popularity results for the Top 10 Most Popular Artistes were announced as well. The series was hosted by Dasmond Koh and Christina Lin.

Nominations and wins

  • Singers Kelvin Tan, Candyce Toh and Chew Sin Huey were notable for their first nominations for the Top 10 Most Popular artiste award.
  • Newscaster Tung Soo Hua won her third consecutive "Best News Presenter" award, part of the five-win streak since she won her first award in 2004 until the category retired in 2010.


The ceremony for Star Awards 2006 received mixed reception, however, criticisms were surfaced from the technical, camera and backstage crew, ranging from technical problems (i.e. lack of sound control, or display glitches) to management (i.e. time management and area allocation, the latter did receive complaints from the audiences watching from the mosh pit and free standing areas).

St. James Power Station, which was selected as the venue, was also criticised by viewers, citing that the venue was too small to host award ceremonies as artistes and audience were either squeezed in or forced out of the venue due to limited space. However, four other venues outside the MediaCorp Studios at Caldecott studios (1996's World Trade Centre, 2010–11's Resorts World Sentosa, 2012–13's Marina Bay Sands and 2014's Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre) were much more favourable in hosting live performances since, specifically Star Awards.

The nominations also saw controversies whereas the potential artistes, notably Aileen Tan, who had two leading roles, failed to receive nominations for both Best Actresses and the Top 10 Most Favourite artiste, in the place for singers Kelvin Tan, Candyce Toh and Chew Sin Huey, all of which were nominated for the first time. This led to outrage by Tan's detractors, who claimed that she has taken on stereotype roles, particular that of fierce, angry and constantly screaming characters too many times, which could have impacted her nomination chances.

During the award ceremony, both the acceptance speeches for Tay Ping Hui (Tay unnecessarily extended for an extended duration, causing host Bryan Wong was unable to finish his speech on time) and Huang Yiliang (Huang making remarks unsuitable for audiences) had resulted in complaints lodged by the viewers. The guest presenters were also heavily criticised in terms on jokes, leading MediaCorp to force out fans from entering the pub.

The adjustment of the ratio for the "Top 10 Most Favourite Artistes" received mixed reviews about the 50% allocation of the final results, which was done in August 2006 by a survey of about 600 Singaporeans. The reviews ranging from advantages assumed by newer artistes, but also a bit of criticism when rumours were spread on why Kelvin Tan Wei Lian lost by some votes in the weekly survey results. Despite this, the 50% allocation would later be returned in Star Awards 2018, and revised where it was done on a derivation of 1,000 votes.

Star Awards 2007 accolades

Despite mixed reception from the 2006 ceremony, the show eventually went on to win the "Best Variety Special" in the ceremony next year, marking the show's first win for the category.
