The nominations were announced on 24 February 2009, and the popularity awards later on 27 March. As like previous years, most technical category awards were presented outside the ceremony. The Best Info-Ed Programme Host award was introduced to recognise infotainment show hosts.[1]

The nomination lists for the main categories were announced on 24 February 2009. Nominations for the popularity awards (Top 10 Most Popular Male and Female Artistes) were announced on 27 March 2009.

In contrast of previous Star Awards ceremonies which were held at the end of the year (month of December), a change in the television season resulted in 2008 having no ceremonies, and this was the first award ceremony in Star Awards history to be held on the month of April and the format had remained for the future ceremonies since.

Due to a format change on having two shows in the following year, this was the last Star Awards ceremony, to present the Technical Awards outside the main show until Star Awards 2016, as well as hosting a single award ceremony (not counting prelude or special episodes) until Star Awards 2017.

The Little Nyonya became the biggest winner for the 2009 ceremony, having records of breaking the number of nominations and wins with 16 and 9, respectively, surpassing the former record holder in the 2003 ceremony's drama, Holland V, which got 10 and 7, respectively. The record for the nominations would remain held until the 2014 ceremony, where it was first beaten by The Dream Makers (season 1), which had 21 nominations and a record-tying nine wins; the number of wins would also be beaten in the 2016 ceremony, in which The Dream Makers (season 2) surpassed the record of both nominations and wins with 26 and 12, respectively.
