After a hiatus last year due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the Star Awards came back with a bang on Sunday (April 18). Not only was the glamorous event held across multiple stages for the first time ever, this year’s awards also featured more nominees in each category.
One thing that has remained constant, however, is the acceptance speeches. You never quite know what to expect when a celeb gets on stage to receive an award. Some speeches are short and sweet, others are detailed and carefully worded, while a few are off-the-cuff, endearing and sometimes downright funny.
Our favourite kind of speech? The kind that stays with us long after the cameras stop rolling and the red carpet has been rolled up. Ahead, the 7 most inspiring and touching speeches from this year’s Star Awards.
