    Oh no! It’s really so disappointing that Jessica & Felicia can’t be norminated this year although they were the lead actress of the shows. It’s really such a pity that they can’t be norminated. I think that they’re both very good actress. Does that mean that they won’t be norminated for the Top 10 Most Popular Actress also?? Such a pity! By the way Paul, when’ll the norminations be out? Is it this week? Really can’t wait for it! Supporting Joanne & Yvonne! Zs6p3z

    I hope not to see Joanne Peh on the list as best actress as YHIM is not a gd drama and her main role does not have much breakthrough in the drama except the mother role. I am not biased or posting such a comment but I would say there are many other better actresses who deserve a place too.

    Furthermore, only 5 people can be nominated for this category. So hope the management will give those who deserves more rather than anyhow give the award.

    I am expecting Ann Kok to be nominated as best supporting actress award for Danni role. She deserves it very well.

    Joanne is a lousy actress, and thus please do not waste any seat for her.

    The most worthy five:
    1. Jeanette Aw – Breakout(Her role alone was already a leg up into the big time for her. Let alone her very well considered professional delivery. One of the nominees? You bet)
    2. Zhou Ying – Breakout(I gave her the vote because she touched me in quite a few scenes of the show despite the fact that she is just a newbie in this line. She may not be the Best Actress today, but I bet you she will be one tomorrow)
    3. Rui En – With You(Which acting awards show has ever left out a crying goddess for a nomination under the Best Actress category? You name it)
    4. Eelyn Kok – Precious Babes(Potential nominee but not a potential winner)
    5. Chen Li Ping – Unriddle(All-time nominee. Need we say too much? Her confident delivery will definitely win over a few more points for her from the panel of judges)

    May just slip into the nomination for all we know:
    1. Cynthia Koh – Mrs P.I.(Whether it is good to be natural, we will see if this woman gets nominated for the award)
    2. Rui En – Happy Family(May be a double nomination as consolation for her hard work)
    3. Ann Kok – Precious Babes(Could’ve been a definite nominee for the award but her role被别的roles比下去so let’s leave it all to fate)

    Heaven-got-no-eyes if they are in:
    1. Joanne Peh – Your Hand In Mine(Weak delivery of role despite having so much of space for development in the role)
    2. Paige Chua – The Score(Weak delivery of role despite having so much of space for development in the role)
    3. Apple Hong – Mrs P.I.(Although a rather good interpretation of the role she is playing somehow, her role is too weak for her to get nominated)
    4. Michelle Chong – Mrs P.I.(Weak role with very mediocre acting skills… Best Actress material? No)
    5. Xiang Yun – The Score(Weak role which explains why this is her worst performance over so many years)

    “Shoo-in”:
    1. Rui En – The 3 shows she did last year showed her high diversity rate as an actress. Many have also questioned if she will get a double nomination for the Best Actress Award this year. Yes, or no? Her portrayal in ‘Happy Family’ was undeniably a good and convincing one. I also understand that many people have been saying that Rui En has broke out of her usual self playing Yang Xiao Dong, but any actress with her experience can pull that role off easily. Take the company’s princesses for example. Give Felicia Chin, Jeanette Aw, Jesseca Liu, or Joanne Peh the role. They can pull it off as well too. The fact that Rui En in person is very different from Yang Xiao Dong in “Happy Family” shouldn’t be a considering factor for the nomination at all, honestly. Otherwise it would be very unfair for the other actresses vying for a spot in the Best Actress nomination list. Her performance in “Unriddle” was yet another good portrayal but if she were to be nominated for a role like that, she would’ve been nominated for her portrayal in “Metamorphosis” back then in 2006 since it was better than this one. So sorry to the people who are rooting for Rui En for a double nomination for the Best Actress Award this year, but I would say she only deserves a spot in the Best Actress Award this year for her portrayal in “With You” last year. Even if she isn’t supposed to win, she deserves a nomination at least for the award as consolation for crying so much for the show last year..

    2. Jeanette Aw – This actress is so accustomed to playing roles that make people feel so sorry for her in which we say “damsel-in-distress” that she becomes one in real life. Having being taken on a wild geese chase for 2 consecutive years already, she definitely deserves to be nominated for one of her two stellar performances last year in both “New Beginnings” and “Breakout” respectively. Her portrayal as Cai Shi Ya in “New Beginnings” was one whereby only an experienced actress can carry it out. It was a sterling one with a lot of in-depth emotions in it, but again, if she were to win for in-depth performances, she would’ve already bagged the award last year for her performance in “Together” which was equally good. So I would say she will be nominated for her portrayal as Yang Nian Qing/Yang Min Hui/Ye Zi Qing in “Breakout”. It isn’t easy to portray a character with multiple personality disorders. Apart from experience, you also need hard work. Without hard work, you can never carry the role off well even if you are a veteran. Since Jeanette Aw has won over many praises for her performance in “Breakout”, she has definitely succeeded in bringing the character to life. I will definitely add additional points for this actress if I were one of the judges on the panel. Not only do I dare say she will be nominated for the award this year, but I also dare say she has a very high chance of bringing it home, finally.

    Cynthia Koh – You always need an all-time favourite or a long-time veteran to spice up the nomination list to make the award seem very coveted. Last year, it was Chen Li Ping and Hong Hui Fang. This year, it will be Cynthia Koh. Cynthia Koh has certainly received many compliments for her performance in “Mrs P.I.”. Many say it was a very natural portrayal, I agree with it. Not only was it just a very natural, but it was also one which was handled with a lot of profession as it was at the same time very in-depth. If the panel of judges doesn’t see the amount of effort Cynthia Koh puts in, then there must be something wrong with the way they judge. I wouldn’t call them judges then, I would call them critics if I don’t want to sound too blunt.. All in all, a standing ovation for this long-time actress for her latest performance.

    That is the end of my “shoo-in” list. I dare not say too much for the other actresses other than this three this year, but I can mention a few names for a rather commendable performance last year.
    1. Chen Li Ping – Your Hand In Mine
    2. Eelyn Kok – Precious Babes
    3. Zhou Ying – Breakout

    A pity Felicia Chin and Jesseca Liu left us and are not qualified for Star Awards at all this year otherwise I am very certain they will both make it for a nomination at this award. Their performance in “No Limits” and “New Beginnings” respectively are very natural and in-depth like Cynthia Koh in “Mrs P.I.”

    Best Supporting Actress nomination list(in my opinion):
    1. Xiang Yun – Priceless Wonder
    2. Hong Hui Fang – New Beginnings
    3. Priscelia Chan – Unriddle
    4. Ann Kok – The Family Court
    5. Belinda Lee – Breakout

    Best Actor nomination list(in my opinion):
    1. Chen Han Wei – The Best Things In Life
    2. Qi Yu Wu – The Family Court
    3. Tay Ping Hui – The Family Court
    4. Christopher Lee – Breakout
    5. Elvin Ng – Breakout

    Best Supporting Actor nomination list(in my opinion):
    1. Chen Shu Cheng – Happy Family
    2. Zheng Ge Ping – Precious Babes
    3. Zzen Zhang – Unriddle
    4. Huang Wen Yong – The Score
    5. Guo Liang – Breakout

    I agree. If JP can win, I think RE or JA can win too. And I think JA in New Beginnings was more natural. It didn’t make me feel that bit of discomfort which I felt when I was watching Breakout. If she wins with Breakout, I can imagine the response. The public will make noise saying that she was bad and they will back their reports up using internet forums where people scold and criticize her for her acting to say that MCS is biased towards her. Otherwise they will say that MCS designed this role with a lot of room to improve on for her, just so that she can win. That’s why… I will prefer to have her win with a plain role. New Beginnings fits the bill!

    Well,I guess it’s time for Rui En’s acting to be recognised, isn’t it? If you look at records, her shows usually have a rather satisfactory viewership, i wouldn’t say excellent but good enough to indicate that there are many people watching out for her and continuously following her dramas to witness her improvements in acting.

    Her dramas usually made it in the top 10 because she’s one star to look out for. Her acting is not pretentious, and somewhat, down-to-earth, just like a typical person who strives to excel by working extremely hard. I’m sure many would agree in this aspect that she does her best in all that she does. I just feel that it would really be a pity if she doesn’t get recognition for her awards.

    But I can see that even without all these so-called awards, she would still work doubly hard in her acting career because this is simply just her passion. I just sincerely wish that those who deserve the awards would be able to bag them home contentedly. All the best! =)

    I just feel that ou xuan’s acting in breakout is a bit weird, it is like more for a stage performance rather than for a tv drama. Know that she tries hard but i am not convinced enough.

    Xiang Yun is trying too hard. Will get nominated but i dun believe she will win.

    Chen Li Ping’s performance in YIHM is good but the role is lack of depth. Her performance in the unriddle is superb, i really want to see her get nominated for this role. Being able to deliver extraordinarily good performance with short time preparation shall win her a nomination for BA…Sometimes the judges need to look from different angles. Though I think she won’t win this time. Is this her 25 years with mediacorps? It is time to award her Te Bie Cheng Jiu Jiang considering her contributions and achievement!

    Rui En should win this year. I think there is still something lack in her acting, but she will grow stronger with accumulated experience. If jp can win before, I dont see the point of denying her acting.

    Jeanette for Rocket Award and Rui En for Best Actress Award. Rui En has always put up sterling performance but just always robbed of the chance to even be nominated. While I think Jeanette did improve in her role in Breakout. (Though I did not even realize there were supposed to be 4 personalities to be portrayed. Saw only 2.) Just saying.

    Anyway why not let audience take part in nominating as well? 5 nominations by the professional judges and 1 nomination from the sea of audience. Fair and square, no?

    JA is good in New Beginnings. One of her most consistent performances. I hope she will be nominated for that role, and I hope she will win it too!

    To those who keep talking about Ann – she relinquished her San Jie position a decade ago when she left. Did she expect MCS to wow over her when she returned? She left first! If I were MCS I wouldn’t be too bothered with her. I rather put my money into grooming JA, RE, JP (I don’t like her though), and the newer ones like Chris Tong (I don’t like her also!) and Zhou Ying, and maybe the more veteran ones who stayed on with MCS like Cynthia Koh.

    Hmmm. Just my opinion, I don’t really understand why some would wanna nominate Jeanette Aw for New Beginnings over Breakout. IMO, Jeanette’s performance in New Beginnings was far too plain, maybe even stiff. No doubt there were flaws in JA’s acting in Breakout (one major flaw being in her more evil scenes – in fact, some parts you can really feel she’s trying really hard and it just doesn’t work that way), but I still think in no way can her performance in New Beginnings be better than in Breakout. If not for some scenes in Breakout, I would say overall Jeanette had delivered well enough, taking into account some scenes that were very well-done.

    So.. if Jeanette were to be nominated for New Beginnings instead of Breakout, then I’d rather she not get nominated at all, and the slot be given to another more deserving actress. Then again, anything can happen. And if there’s gonna be a double nomination, it should go to Rui En. Anyway because I watched a few shows only, I know almost nothing about the other actresses’ performances in the other shows. But from the shows I watched, I would go with:

    Rui En – With You
    Zhou Ying – Breakout
    Jeanette Aw – Breakout
    (& the rest, veterans like Chen Liping in Unriddle, Xiang Yun in The Score, or maybe Joanne Peh in YHIM)

    From the comments above, its guaranteed that Jeanette Aw and Rui En will get nominated.

    But I really do hope that Rui En bags the award. she has worked so hard. And for all her roles in 2010, I think that she would win the award with her role in With You .It was super convincing, although her chemistry with Han Wei wasn’t THAT good. But nevertheless, her hardwork deserves an award.

    Jeanette Aw was great in Breakout. But, it was only at the middle of the show, and only in the middle of the show, that she successfully convinced us. I would say she has a high chance of winning not only because she had a role in the year-end blockbuster but also because all her fans out there are shouting out for her.

    My third choice would be none other than Cynthia Koh. She is underrated just because she isn’t in her 20s and stuffs like that. Yes, she’s 36, yes she’s ‘old’ but who cares? She did a wonderful portrayal of her ‘cute’ aunty in Mrs.P.I., and for that, I personally think she would get a nomination.

    My fourth prediction would be veteran artiste Chen LiPing. Although her role in Your Hand In Mine was quite fogettable, but she made a huge breakthrough when she replaced Zoe in Unriddle. Although she was ‘just a replacement’, I think she did well. Her imaging and style really suits her role and she did magnificent.

    Number five. I would really Really REALLY like to place Jesseca in this spot, but sadly, she isn’t an artiste in Mediacorp anymore, so this spot would be replaced by Eelyn Kok. Yes. I’m predicting that Eelyn Kok would get a nomination. She doesn’t have that much of fans, as compared to Jeanette and Rui En so her possibility of getting the award would be less, but let’s face it. She did WONDERFUL in Precious Babes. Her great chemistry with Qi YiWu and her great portrayal of a director impressed me. After her great breakthrough role in Together 2 years ago, she earned a nomination. That proved what? That proves that she is a Great actress that is underrated. I really hope she gets the nomination even if she doesn’t get the award, because that would be a really great encouragement for her.

    Overall, that’s my list. =)
    I can’t wait for the Best Actor post. I already have 5 actors in mind who deserves the award very much.

    Jeanette is definitely worth the nomination with her fantastic performance in Breakout! Till today, the scene and voice of her saying HI~ and SITU DONGCHENG~ is still in my head!haha

    RuiEn will be her biggest rival this year and it was really bad that jeanette didnt win with The Little Nyonya role previous year. Her role in TLN was awesome too!:D

    Honestly speaking……….. it should go like this: (not in any order)

    Rui En – With You
    Rui En – Unriddle
    Jeanette Aw – Breakout
    Jeanette Aw – New Beginnings
    Quan Yi Feng – The Illusionist

    but this will not happen…. instead i predict the following:

    Rui En – With You
    Jeanette Aw – Breakout
    Chen Li Ping – Unriddle
    Xiang Yun – The Score
    Joanne Peh – Your Hand In Mine

    breakout – between jeanette and zhou ying. definitely jeanette. zhou ying has improved definitely bu the role is a little flat and there wasn’t any breakthrough by her

    precious babes – between ann, cynthia and eelyn, i choose eelyn cos she and 715 were the reason i turned on the tv throughout the show

    with you – rui en

    unriddle – between rui en and chenliping, i choose chen liping. she is why i keep following the show

    the score – xiang yun’s acting is too big a contrast to paige’s substandard acting. obvious choice – xiang yun

    BA nominees are: jeanette, eelyn, rui en, chen liping and xiang yun

    winner – jeanette or rui en
    question is who cried more?
    jeanette’s role has diversity but rui en’s role has more consistency.
    the judge has to decide – who cried better?

    jeanette or rui en?

  70. A well-deserving award after 10 years

    3 years ago

    Best Actress 2011: Rui En (Happy Family) – I feel that not only should she be nominated, in fact she deserves to win the award in SA2011.
    Why did I choose Happy Family and not With You or Unriddle? Because in With You, the main leads in the drama were supposed to be the two male leads (AP and CHW) and Rui En was not really considered to be the main lead though she is the female lead. In Unriddle, both Rui En and Chen Liping were actually the main leads in the drama.
    However, in Happy Family, I can say that she is both the only main lead and the only female lead in the drama. She managed to portrayed a comical role impressively that made me laughed and most importantly this character is just not her in real life unlike the characters in With You and Unriddle. Furthermore, this is the role that made her rekindled her passion for acting and it will be a significant award in her entire acting career if Yang Xiaodong make her the Best Actress in 2011.
    Yvonne Lim got her Best Actress award after working hard for 10 years…. It’s time that Rui En’s perseverance to improve and her brilliant acting performances be recognized by mediacorp.

    In my opinion, the following actresses deserve the nomination in running order

    Jeanette Aw (Breakout and New Beginning). She has improved tremendously since the hit show, Little Nonya in 2009… New Beginning and BreakOut in 2010 show her talents! and she deserved the WIN this year
    Rui En (With You). 3 dramas in 2010 but With You is probably her strongest
    Xiang Yun (The Score). Always a strong contender despite her age and competing with younger artistes
    Ann Kok (Precious Babes)

    The 5th spot is either Apple or Cynthia

    In terms of YHIM, Yvonne and Li Ping are better than Joanne although none impressed. I dont remember other Best Actress winners like Joanne, whose acting is still so unconvincing even though she has already won it before. If Joanne is nominated, it would be the same reason why she was nominated previously, same reason why she won Best Actress with a supporting role, same reason why she got endorsements meant for Jeanette. Politics.

    In Breakout, Zhou Ying did not understand what was childhood innocence, she failed to portray the simplicity of a child. Dont we always say to children that you will understand when you grow up? You wont understand because you are too young? Because children really cannot understand some of the things adult faces until they experience it. I prefer her handling of Ahni.

    Let see what are the agendas this year, see if veterans like Li Ping and Xiang Yun will be sacrificed or if Rui En will be snubbed again or if Jeanette would be taken on a wild geese chase like previous years. We shall see if it is a deserving list for the first time in years or is it a list meant to make things less competitive for the company to meet its agendas just like in the previous years. We will see.

    Every year, the female actress competition is very strong. But I feel this year is consider moderate, because I feel it just a competition btw Chen liping, rui en and Jeanette. Honestly, I feel it more of competition btw rui en & Jeanette. Both of them perform very well for this year. Rui en has three drama to represent her, as for Jeanette I can only say one since her production for this year only got breakout. I feel that each role has it each performance level. But I have to say in term of different and creating a new level of character. I must say it Jeanette aw, she really created a new level of acting . Using vocal , I read in a article before certain Hollywood celeb stated, vocal is a very powerful tool to be use in acting. And now I totally agree to it, and I feel Jeanette aw has improve herself to another new level already. As for rui en, she also improve herself and plus she is lucky to be able to get involve in three different kind of roles this year. Not all actress will have such a chance. And rui en didn’t put all this role to wasted.but i feel happy family shd be the one she get nominated. As for Chen liping, she never failed in presenting a good role, and I feel in unriddle she totally cover rui en already which Is also I feel rui en shd get nominated for happy family.

    As for winner, there always so much prediction and disappointment each year. For this year, I hope it will be Jeanette. Because of her excellent performance in breakout, and also she show people how vocal can be use in acting and how it shd be use in acting. It totally another level of performance which we have not really seen in local drama. Bravo to her.

    i will go for breakout – jeanette, rui en – happy family, chen liping – unriddle, xiang yun- the score, hmm that all i feel really shd get nominated. i ferl that happy family is better for rui en, for with you n unriddle i feel her performance is just normal nothing much compare to happy family. honesty, i think she wont get more than one nomination. because i rmb there was once jeanette aw has two strong role little nynoya n rythem of life but she only get one nomination worsr she lost it ( still cannot get over it) . this year i feel strong competition is btw jeanetre, liping n rui en. i actually feel alot for jeanette role in breakout, compare to the other competitor, her appearance in breakout is not as much as the other in their drama, but she still manage to deliver a outstanding performance. her 4 diff charactor is so clear, and her voice. to begin with, i cannot get use to it.. but as it goes i feel it is unique and i dun rmb anyone try to protray a role using different vocal. i feel whether it good or bad it still a good try and effort to be i feel she succeed. i really hope to see she can bag this award this year! it really her time..

    as for zhou ying, her performancr is ok for a new comer but to compete in BA i feel she need time, her emotional and acting is mot consistent if you really watch in details. if she got nominated we will know why.. look at the review given by the ep and scriptwriter of breakout. i agree with them. as for joanne peh, honestly i feel her role in yhim really shouldnt get nomination. if she can i feel the laywers in the zou jing zou chu shd get nominated too. her performancr is just average.

    I am rooting for jeanette, yes her role make it easier for her to be different.. But other than different she changes a lot of thing like vocal and her 4 split personalities is very obvious.. It not easy I feel… And honestly compare to rui en in the Chen xiao dong I feel jeanettte make even more big changes… I also hope Jeanette will get it… She misses the past two year already… Hope her luck is better this year…

    Felicia Chin for No limits. Her role is the show was definitely not a very exaggerated role, thus it required a lot of nei xing xi. Her acting had to be subtle and not overly kua zhang. It is definitely much more difficult to just act as a normal girl than to play roles like a cool cop, someone with a split personality and so on.
    The scene that really left an impression on me was when her dad tore up a photo of her with her mum. The was she handled it was really good.
    For that, I think she deserves a nomination. I wont dare say she deserves to win BA, but at least a nomination. Just my two cents worth.
    What do you think, Paul?

    Jeanette Aw will get nominated, but I doubt she will win. Some people are just too biased against her. They don’t know what she was trying to portray. I find her acting really good, especially all the crazy scenes – OMG!!!

    Rui En will get nominated too, for With You. Don’t think she will get more than 1 because Happy Family is too cutsey – usually these kinda roles hard to get nominated (and even if nominated also quite hard to win). She might win for With You although I think her performance was less than stellar (perhaps it’s because I keep imagining Fann or Zoe or Cynthia or Biren in that role, and I realize they could have done so much more with that role – I’m sorry to Rui En fans but she is great but when compared to the other greats, she still has some distance to cover. Nonetheless, she’s one of the better ones amongst the younger actresses).

    Cynthia Koh should get nominated. She might be a surprise winner. She really got into her role in Mrs P.I. I was pleasantly surprised with her portrayal – it was not too subtle but not too loud. JUST NICE!

    Ann Kok’s role in Happy Family was good. The one in Precious Babes was forgetable. She might do an Ivy Lee and snag the Best Actress through her very ordinary portrayal of a very ordinary character in Precious Babes though (I mean Ivy Lee’s second and third wins were for roles that were honestly so ordinary and forgettable – that suggests something about the “tastes” of the Star Awards panel. But then again ordinary characters and good acting haven’t gained much attention in recent years though – look at how Zoe and Xiang Yun missed out on nominations with their ordinary housewives characters in By My Side and Housewives’ Holiday respectively. I was so sure they would be nominated with those two roles you know).

    Xiang Yun might be nominated for Wu Hua Guo. She was good. Really good. Especially when contrasted with her fellow co-stars who were still rather inexperienced in acting. She might really just get nominated – and I hope she does!

    I think Chen Liping might be nominated – although I found her unnatural in Unriddle, I think she did ok in Your Hand In Mine. But again, a comedic character – will it get a chance? Hard to say.

    Yvonne Lim might also be nominated. Her portrayal in Your Hand In Mine was not too bad as well. She lived up to standards but didn’t deliver a mind-blowing performance. But I would say that it was good enough to get her a nomination.

    In my opinion,
    Jeanette Aw (Breakout)
    Though many were uncomfortable with her voice in the beginning, she put through an excellent performance throughout the show.
    Rui En (With You)
    Emotional scnes were done well and her other two shows were good as well.
    Zhou Ying (Breakout)
    Although her acting in my opinion is still alittle raw, but it’s commendable for her effort and a nomination would be good.
    Chen Li Ping (Unriddle)
    Her portrayal of an undercover was well done and i liked her chemistry with Rui En.

    The 5th would probably be Cynthia from Mrs P.I? Or maybe Yvonne from YHIM?

    If there was another choice, I would choose Jeanette Aw/Zhou Ying.

    She definitely deserves a nomination after so long. With 3 roles this year, I hope she is nominated for either 3 because they are all so different from roles she has acted in the past.

    2. Jeanette
    No one will say that Jeanette did not do well enough for a nomination this year just because she acted in a major show. I believe many people have watched the show and many people are appreciative and impressed with her effort.

    3. Cynthia
    In mrs P.I. From the baby show to this, she showed versatility. Many people loved her endearing portrayal of the character.

    4. Chen liping
    Breakthrough role after so long and her delivery was no less than a pro.

    5. Xiang yun
    Another veteran that outshone the younger gen and was widely recognized for her breakthrough role as well in The Score.

    I think apple and Yvonne both have the calibre to make it too.
    Maybe even Chris tong? Haha

    I really think it’s time for Rui En’s stellar performances to be recognised. At least a nomination for either of the 3 roles, even better if 2 were nominated. I think she’s deserving enough to win BA this year, hopefully she won’t get snubbed again.

    Jeanette Aw from Breakout and Chen Liping from Unriddle are also strong contenders for the award.

    Looking forward to the release of the nominations next month or so (:

    Felicia Chin for No limits. Her role is the show was definitely not a very exaggerated role, thus it required a lot of nei xing xi. Her acting had to be subtle and not overly kua zhang. It is definitely much more difficult to just act as a normal girl than to play roles like a cool cop, someone with a split personality and so on.
    The scene that really left an impression on me was when her dad tore up a photo of her with her mum. The was she handled it was really good.
    For that, I think she deserves a nomination. I wont dare say she deserves to win BA, but at least a nomination. Just my two cents worth.
    What do you think, Paul?

    Zhou Ying did well as a newcomer in breakout. But prob need to be better to be BA. I prefer her acting in he first half as a little gal. Somehow her role in the latter half nothing very special.
    Yup I think her supporting role in unriddled is gd, but role too small lah.
    She doesn’t qualify for best newcomer oredi rite?

    Ann kok have very high chance of getting the BA award and SA award! Precious babes and The family court. Maybe Happy family too. Performance all very good. Ruien maybe got chance for happy family. Yang xiao dong!
    Michelle got chance for Mrs PI. But she’s very underrated! ;( People don’t realize her at all! She’s superb!
    But overall I think Ann kok ba. For the SA she got very high chance right?

    Jeanette aw definitely will be nominated. Whats key is she wins the award or not.

    All her performances from NewBeginnings to Breakout are all nomination worthy but I think she have to win based on her role with Breakout. She really did some really memorable scenes which left a inedible mark on us. Whats more, based on chemistry with co-stars, Jeanette is definitely one which always seems to hav such great chemistry with everybody.

    From TheLittleNyonya with QYW to Together with DYT to New Beginnings with Elvin Ng to Breakout with Chris Lee. Really impressive are her fighting scenes and mental breakdown scenes, few can cry as real and convincingly as Jeanette.

    Joanne is totally out with her one-sided portrayal of a lawyer. Her lack of chemistry with co-stars further bring down her acting chops.

    Ruien&ChenLiping are both really really fantastic and awesome. ChenLiping has already won 2Best Actress, each time trouncing hot favourite Jeanette aw. Quite sad yeah? From 2003 Holland V to 2010! Haizzzzzzzzzz

    ZhouYing was wonderful too in her child-like portrayal of tangying.

    Cynthia Koh and Apple was fantastic too!!!

    1. Jeanette Aw – Breakout (She’s gotta win it this year, she acted so well in this show!)

    2. Rui En – Zui Huo Da Dang
    3. Rui En – With You

    (Yes I think rui en’s deserving enough for 2 of her roles to be nominated. Do this to make her feel rewarded, but give jeanette the best actress prize because jeanette’s very deserving too. Then both jeanette and rui en’s fans will be happy and both actresses will be rewarded accordingly too.)

    4. Xiang Yun – Wu Huo Duo
    5. Cynthia Koh – Mrs. P.I.

    Chen Li Ping was a little unnatural in Zui Huo Da Dang. So I think no nomination for her this year.

    Zhou Ying’s acting in Breakout is too raw and you can tell she’s a newbie when watching. Not good enough for a BA nom.

    Fel, although extremely likeable, isn’t best actress material with her delivery in the swimming show.

    Yvonne lim might sneak into the best actress nomination list for her great (but sadly quite little viewers watched) performance in YHIM.

    Joanne Peh did not really shine in YHIM. Too forgettable. Not deserving to get a nomination this year too.

    Wu Hua Duo’s lead actress (cant remember her name) acting was really bad. Definitely not going to be nominated.

    All the other lead actresses this year are kind of… forgettable?

    -JEANETTE AW(breakout)
    -CHEN LI PING(unriddle)
    -ZHOU YING(breakout)

    Rui En – With You

    Instead of predicting, I think Rui En DESERVES the Best Actress Nomination, or maybe, even the awards. But every year, she just misses it. I sincerely hope this year, history will not repeat again. (Especially this year as all her three roles were really well done and challenging) Rui En’s acting is really one of the most outstanding and convincing among others. It’s really time for her to get a confirmation.

    The scene when eelyn kok leaves the blanket and jumped up from shock when she saw qiyiwu’s naked lower body left an indelible mark and was hilarious. throughout the show she had a seamless chemistry which created a lot of hilarity. acting funny has never been easy. she did it naturally and skilfully

    Choice 1: eelyn kok

    Rui en’s crying scene was perfect interpretation of her role of her devastation in with you.

    Choice 2: rui en

    Ann kok’s crazy woman display of insecurity and weakness was close to perfection.

    Choice 3: ann kok

    Jeanette’s interpretation of the split personality was fantastic, it’s probably because people can’t get used to her voice and her being bad, but overall, let’s be fair, she delivered well.

    Choice 4: jeanette aw

    Chen LiPing’s role as the undercover cop was refreshing and created a whole new idea about women undercovers. she was the anchor to why many people turned on their tvs. she did it without any giving any room for dispute about her candidness in every scene, be it in her moves or way of speaking.

    Choice 5: chen liping

    (Paul: sorry, Ann Kok’s role in ‘The Family Court’ is Best Supporting, not lead)

    JA will win the nomination and award.
    The bar for her role is set quite high, the highest for all drama8 females’ roles.
    While others may be nominated for their performances but none of them has a breakthrough onscreen character to show another side to their acting skills.
    On top of everything else, Chris Lee onscreen relationship with JA has helped tremendously compared to say Elvin + Kola. We like both but the romance between Chris and Jeanette is the better gem.
    JA will win.

    Given that Rui En had three fantastic shows in 2010, it would definitely be every of her fans’ desired wish that she gets nominated for at least one of it. She kicked started the year as a simple-minded and guillable girl with silly antics that has caught us laughing in front of our television sets. Then, in the middle of the year we see a perfect 360 degree panorama view of her metamorphosing into a demure and feminine mother who unfortunately lost her husband. That got us sobbing in tears in front of our television sets as well. She then wrapped up 2010 with what she’s most comfortable in, a kick-ass balls-crushing hot cop. What I’m trying to say is, 2010 had been one helluva year where we got to see three major and drastic changes in Rui En as an actress. Surely, being versatile and multifaceted in the thespian environment are the most basic and fundamental requirement, is it not?

    All in all, my vote for Best Actress – Yang Xiao Dong (Rui En).

    Joanne Peh is good at emo scenes and she deserved a nomination in Your Hand In Mine. I like the pairing of her with Zhang yao dong in this drama but unfortunately the script not well written to make the relationship very unforgettable.

    Rui En also deserved at least one or 2 nominations this year. The rest of the nominees is more filling the gap like who the station wants to promote or also truly deserved to be nominated.
