BABE OF THE YEAR
1. Rui En
The level-headed ice queen remained cool despite her fall-out with actor Zhang Yaodong at this year’s Star Awards Show 1 in April.
2. Jeanette Aw
It’s a golden year for this beauty as she rakes in big bucks from endorsement deals and business opportunities all over.
3. Malmunah Bagharib
She’s pretty, smart and ballsy – and she really doesn’t care what you think of her. Enough said.

The Flame Awards is celebrating 17 years – gosh, how time flies! – of discerning adulation and witty irreverence with a bang.
For nearly two decades, the sharp-tongued team at The New Paper has been handing out laurels to the crazy kids on the entertainment scene for adding colour to our lives.
We either praise these beloved stars or roast them with sadistic glee.
This year, expect a few new award categories that give special mention to celebrities who amused and perplexed us with their acts of impulsiveness.
But first, a classic readers’ favourite – BABE OF THE YEAR.
BABE OF THE YEAR
1. RUI EN
2. JEANETTE AW
3. MUNAH BAGHARIB
Two gorgeous veterans are up against a spunky newcomer. Will it be a case of youthful victory, or will experience and massive fan base win the day?

Babe of the year
She’s icy cool over Flame nomination
1. Rui En
Staying true to her ice queen reputation, the 31-year old took in her Babe of The Year nomination coolly.
“Thanks for nominating me again,” she wrote in an e-mail reply.
“As usual, regarding any awards, I normally have zero expectations.”
The Hype Records artiste was juggling a hectic filming schedule and could not speak to us on the phone.
Rui En was nominated this year because we loved it that she kept it real at Star Awards Show 1 in April.
A comedic skit spoofing the A-list stars of Caldecott Hill mercilessly teased her about her then-highly publicised spat with actor Zhang Yaodong and she looked moody for the rest of the show.
Zhang had talked to the media about a rape scene he did with Rui En in the drama On the Fringe in August 2011. Rui En, who was working in Malaysia then, immediately posted a heated blog entry, stressing that she was against doing kissing and rape scenes.
At the Star Award Show 1, she didn’t even pretend to be happy for the cameras. In her acceptance speech, she said firmly: “We are here to film (dramas), not create news.”
Now, if that isn’t a dig at her colleagues’ – and perhaps, also the media’s – “kaypoh” chatter about her and Zhang, we don’t know what is.
In her e-mail replies to TNP, Rui En said: “All the teasing and ragging is really part and parcel of the game. Some said my face was black, only to realise afterwards that it’s my default look.
“I just honestly wish they could come up with some new material to tease me with.”
She didn’t say much about her chances against the other two nominees, labelmate Jeanette Aw and Maimunah Bagharib (Munah), but expressed concerns about her fans spending too much money on SMS votes.
“I know there has been plenty of voting going on this year for various awards, do vote within your means,” urged Rui En.

BEST ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE
Rui En has acted in numerous memorable roles in her 10 years of acting. In 2011, three dramas she starred in were among the Top 6 most-watch dramas on MediaCorp Channel 8. A Tale of Two Cities debuted with a record more than 1 million in viewership and Rui En’s fresh approach of a princessy character won further praise and conviction from the audience. The role earned Rui En a nomination for Best Actress at Star Awards 2012. Her scorching popularity has further been affirmed when she was recently voted into the Top 10 Most Popular Female Artiste for the 7th consecutive year at Star Awards 2012, as well as the Singapore E-Awards 2012 Most Popular TV Artiste for the third year in a row.
“Thank you to the production team for giving me the opportunity and space to bring out the extremities of the role.”Hu Xiao Man” would not have existed without EP Paul Yuen and script writer Phang Kai Yee. “Hu Xiao Man” will always remain significant to me. Thank you, ATA.” – Rui En

Who is Singapore’s top actor?
It is not Fann Wong, Zoe Tay or Qi Yuwu.
According to Sarcount, a newly launched online entertainment chart which measures popularity by social media engagement, Leon Jay Williams takes the top spot.
Starcount taps the top 11 social networks to gauge a celebrity’s popularity. This includes networks such as Facebook and Twitter that are familiar here, and the Chinese-language RenRen and Weibo networks that have a far stronger presence outside Singapore.
To measure popularity, the engine looks through the number of followers and fans on a brand’s or star’s social media account. Fan engagement is also taken into consideration, depending on how many fans have shared the brand’s or celebrity’s social network updates.
Personalities are also rated by how often they engage their fans through conversations on these social networks.
On the Singapore Actors chart, Williams is followed closely by Fann Wong, Huang Jinglun, Rui En and Jeanette Aw, actors more familiar to audiences here because they feature in local productions.
