Anugerah Bintang Popular Berita Harian (literally: "Popular Star Award"), commonly known by the acronym ABPBH, originally named as Anugerah Pelakon/Penyanyi Popular - Nescafe Classic, is an award presented annually by Berita Harian of Malaysia to recognise and honour the popularity of Malaysian celebrities and entertainers in the entertainment industry, including the film industry, television industry as well as music industry. The award ceremony features performances by prominent artists. It is the most prestigious people's choice award for Malaysian artists in the entertainment industry.
The award was established in 1987 and it is totally based from the votes submitted by the readers of Berita Harian. The first Anugerah Bintang Popular telecast took place on the night of 1 December 1987 in Dewan Bunga Raya, Putra World Trade Centre. There were only seven categories presented in the first award ceremony.
In 1989, Radio Televisyen Malaysia in collaboration with SALEM made Anugerah Bintang Popular available for live broadcasting. The award took place in Angkasapuri on 13 January 1990. On that very night, a new category of Most Popular Artiste was introduced, which is still maintained until now.
The recording labels, TV stations, radio stations, and film production companies are responsible to hand over a name list of artists that are eligible to compete in each category. The nominees could be personnels, celebrities, actors, and singers that are active and consistent in their own field in a certain period of time.
For each radio network or station, nomination is limited to three male and female radio presenters. The radio station must be aired at least in three states. For TV host, nominations are eligible for those who are the steady host for a certain programme, at least for two seasons since its broadcast.
Nomination for actors and actresses are based from films that have passed the evaluation of Lembaga Penapisan Filem (LPF). Each film could nominate two actors and actresses for the category of Most Popular Movie Actor and Most Popular Movie Actress, apart from the category of Best New Male Artist and Best New Female Artist. On the other hand, terms and conditions for each category of Most Popular Male Singer, Most Popular Female Singer, and Most Popular Group is guided by the terms applied in Anugerah Industri Muzik.
The early nomination would be published in Berita Harian, usually for five consecutive weeks.

Once the five nominees are finalised, the second round of voting session would be made available to all readers in which they have to select only one winner for each category.
