With the death of a legend, last night’s Star Awards Show 1 had a somewhat sombre feel to it. And MediaCorp artistes, who worked with the late Huang Wenyong, paid heartfelt tributes to the veteran and well-respected actor who entertained local audiences for more than three decades.

Huang, 60, died of lymphoma on Saturday, one day before the first part of the awards show. The Star awards honour the best in local television.

The three-hour show, broadcast live on Channel 8, started with the audience observing a minute of silence as a mark of respect to Huang. This was followed by a five-minute video tribute to the versatile actor.

Here are some pictures from the tribute and the awards.
