She took home not one, not two but six awards at the Star Awards Show 1 held at MediaCorp TV Theatre at Caldecott Broadcast Centre last night.

Local actress Jeanette Aw bagged the coveted Regional Most Popular MediaCorp Artist for three countries (Cambodia, Malaysia and Indonesia), the Social Media Award, the highly competitive Favourite Female Character Award and the Favourite Onscreen Couple Award.

In an interview with local media backstage, the 35-year-old said of her three wins in the same category for Regional Most Popular MediaCorp Artist: “I didn’t expect to win so many awards (for that category). I was preparing to leave stage after getting the first one.

“I feel a bit bad as so many (of the awards) went to me. I really feel the love of the fans from so many areas. It is unexpected as I was in those regions only for work.”

Aw spoke of the affection she gets from fans overseas whenever she visits those countries.
