The title goes to MediaCorp Ah Jie (big sister in Mandarin) Zoe Tay and fellow smartphone-toting actress Yvonne Lim.
The pair, both presenters at ATA, were obsessed with taking selfies at the pre-show cocktail reception.
Tay, 45, told The New Paper she has become "quite an expert" at this hobby and proclaimed selfies to be "the best kind of pictures".
"You don't have to worry about angles or lighting, they will always turn out amazing," she said, before proceeding to grab a spontaneous group selfie with gal pals Lim, Aileen Tan and Rebecca Lim. That shot, by the way, turned out perfect.
Lim said she mastered her selfie-taking skills while filming in China.
"In between scenes, it can get boring, so I'll take lots of selfies and post them on Weibo," said the 37-year-old.
