Similar to the preceding ceremonies since 2010, the ceremony was split into two separate shows. The first show, titled 光辉大赏 (lit. Glorious Showcase), which focused on Professional and technical awards (which was given out to backstage crew and scriptwriters) as well as showcasing various drama skits to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of Chinese Drama Serials. The second show, titled 颁奖礼 (lit. Award Showcase), was held at the Grand Ballroom in Marina Bay Sands, which focused on main category awards honoring the television series of 2011-12.[1] The first show were hosted by entertainment artistes Dasmond Koh, Michelle Chia, Lee Teng and Vivian Lai, while the second show were hosted by Guo Liang and Taiwanese singer-actress Bowie Tsang.

A Tale of 2 Cities, Love Thy Neighbour and the 2011's remake of the 1987's drama On the Fringe, the latter tying with Devotion for having the most nominations with 12, were tied with the most wins for the ceremony with three for all three series; A Tale of 2 Cities won Favourite Female Character Award on Show 1, and Best Actress and Best Newcomer on Show 2; Love Thy Neighbour won Young Talent and Top Rated Drama Programme awards in Show 1 and Best Supporting Actress in Show 2; the remake won Best Screenplay and Best Drama Editing on Show 1, and Best Drama Serial on Show 2, marking the first television remake to win the award. 20 programs winning at least one award (10 dramas, 10 variety/info-ed) was the largest representation for the number of winning programs in Star Awards history.
