All-Time Favourite Artiste award recipients 

Introduced in 2004, the All-Time Favourite Artiste award is given to stars who have won the Top 10 Most Popular award ten times. 

Those who receive this award will no longer be eligible to run for the popularity category from the following year onwards. 

As Zheng Geping and Dennis Chew received their the tenth award in 2021, this year will be their turn to clinch the highly coveted All-Time Favourite Artiste award. 

And unsurprisingly, all eyes will also be on the next-in-line nominees such as Felicia Chin, Rebecca Lim and Pornsak, who each have nine wins. 

The Star Awards 2022 will be shown live on April 24 on Channel 8 and Channel U, with simulcast on meWATCH and Mediacorp Entertainment YouTube channel.
