The highly anticipated Star Awards 2023 season has once again kicked off to honor the best in local Mandarin television. The annual event began with a glamorous gala dinner at the JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach on March 30, where behind-the-scenes talents were recognized for their achievements.
Among the seven awards presented that evening, runaway hit drama Your World In Mine emerged as the big winner, bagging both the Best Drama Serial and Best Theme Song awards. The drama, which premiered in July last year, stars a talented cast including Huang Biren, Yao Wen Long, Hong Ling, and Richie Koh, and tells the story of a family struggling to cope with the pressures of life while caring for a teenager with an intellectual disability.
As the Star Awards 2023 ceremony draws near, several of the Your World In Mine cast members are in the running for performance awards. Huang and Hong are vying for Best Actress, while Koh and Desmond Ng are contending for Best Actor. Additionally, Xiang Yun and Lina Ng have been nominated for Best Supporting Actress, while Zhu Hou Ren is up for Best Supporting Actor.

The event was hosted by Dennis Chew and Hazelle Teo and was attended by industry talents and artistes, including Kym Ng, Qi Yuwu, Pierre Png, and Richie Koh, among others.
