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.
