Fans of Pornsak and Kym Ng can finally breathe a sigh of relief this week.

After a two-week absence from the Star Awards 2015 Top 20 Most Popular Artistes combined rankings, the bubbly hosts have finally managed to snag spots in the coveted list. If their fans’ ballots are able to keep them afloat all the way until voting ends on April 26, 8.30pm, it will be their fifth and seventh wins respectively.

In more happy news, Best Actor hopeful Shaun Chen is back in the game after being unceremoniously eliminated from last week’s rundown. Thankfully, that was only a temporary occurrence (unless another lack of votes happens again), and he is once again on the path to scoring his very first Popular Male Artiste trophy.

The good tidings don’t stop there, particularly for the ladies: while Kym may have made it into the Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes line-up, no one had to be kicked out to make room for her, all thanks to a tie in the results. Yup, that means newcomer Carrie Wong is yet another step closer to making her first Top 10 nomination her first win, and the prospect of Rui En receiving her 10th honour (which means an All-Time Favourite Artiste award in 2016) still looks just as promising.

Not all is well for everyone, however. While there is also a tie – and hence, 11 names – over at the Top 10 Most Popular Male Artistes corner, Pornsak and Kym’s fellow emcee extraordinaire Dasmond Koh has forfeited his position after two weeks in the top, proving further how volatile the journey to “Most Popular” victory can be.

But not to worry, supporters of the fallen and the yet-to-see-the-light-of-the-Top-20-list! You still have ample time to keep those votes (both online and telepoll) coming in so that your celebrity of choice will not walk home empty-handed that night.

And, for those doing a good job of keeping their faves in the fight, there is no room for complacency because as we have all clearly seen from our weekly updates, the phrase “One day you are in, the next you are out” clearly rings true for the Top 20 Most Popular Artistes battle.
