The TVB Star Awards Malaysia (Chinese: TVB 马来西亚星光荟萃颁奖典礼) is an annual awards ceremony honoring Cantonese programming achievements in Malaysia. It is produced by TVB Entertainment News, with Astro and MY FM as media partners. The ceremony was previously known as the My AOD Favourites Awards (Chinese: MY AOD我的最爱颁奖典礼), which succeeded the Astro Wah Lai Toi Drama Awards (Chinese: Astro华丽台电视剧大奖).
The Malaysian television channel Astro Wah Lai Toi, presented by Astro, airs Hong Kong television programmes produced by TVB. In 2005, Astro organised its first awards ceremony, the 2004 Astro Wah Lai Toi Drama Awards, presenting awards to Hong Kong actors and actresses for their acting achievements in TVB television dramas. TVB Entertainment News took over the production of the awards series in 2013, renaming it The TVB Star Awards. It has since become an annual event, and is regarded as a prelude to Hong Kong's TVB Anniversary Awards. The most recent awards show took place on 28 November 2015.
The nominations for the TVB Star Awards are jointly determined by Astro and TVB for TVB programmes shown on Astro Wah Lai Toi throughout the designated year. Winners are decided by the Malaysian public. Presently, voting is done through a mobile app produced by TVB and Astro.
