The Best In Chinese TV Drama Honoured At Star Awards 2007

16 Dec

SINGAPORE: The honours roll is out on the best and most popular in local television Chinese drama production.

The annual Star Awards was screened live on Channel 8 on Sunday evening. Cop show “Metamorphosis” was named the Best Drama Serial.

The award for Best Supporting Actress went to May Phua for her role in “Mars vs Venus”, while Darren Lim was named Best Supporting Actor for his performance in “Kinship”.

Lim was out of the country and a representative accepted the award on his behalf from Korean TV heartthrob Kim Jeong Hoon.

The Best Newcomer award went to Pornsak, who received his award from Taiwanese pop group, 5566.

Channel U’s news anchor Tung Soo Hua was named Best News and Current Affairs Presenter for the fourth time.

In the closely-watched Best Variety Show Host category, comedian Mark Lee pipped four other veterans to clinch the honour.

Yvonne Lim was crowned Best Actress for the first time for her performance in “Metamorphosis”, while Zheng Ge Ping was named Best Actor for his role in “Like Father, Like Daughter”.

This is also Zheng’s first win in this category.

The third series of “Say It If You Dare” won the Best Variety Programme award and last year’s Star Awards 2006 was the Best Variety Special.

MediaCorp celebrates 25 years of TV drama production this year and, for the first time, the Star Awards were handed out in two separate shows.

The 25th Drama Anniversary Show was held last Sunday, December 9.

Variety show host Sharon Au, who is studying in Japan on a MediaCorp scholarship, made a surprise appearance to co-host the second instalment of this year’s Star Awards with Guo Liang and Quan Yifeng.
