I'm kinda new to Blender. Currently playing around with version 2.8 to practice some rendering. Is there a way to achieve this 'light-star' effect for the blooming objects with the emission? If there is an alternative way then it's fine too. See these images below for references. Thanks in advance:

    $\begingroup$ It can be done by running your bloomed image through a glare node in the compositor. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 22, 2020 at 6:50

You can connect it like this. Play around with the settings - "ghosts" looks good as well. The emission strength of the object being bloomed plays a factor also. See below:
