TV Week Logie Awards – race for Gold begins

logie_2011 TV Week has announced the nominations for the upcoming 53rd annual TV Week Logie Awards.

This year saw an increase in the amount of votes received for the Awards due to the voting process being held entirely online and over a longer period than in previous years.

The night’s major award, the Gold Logie for Most Popular Personality on Australian Television, will be contested by representatives of all three commercial networks plus ABC.

And although Packed To The Rafters continues to appear numerous times amongst the award nominees, Network Ten’s new drama of 2010, Offspring, has also snared a number of nominations in both the publicly-voted and industry panel-voted categories.  Nine’s Underbelly: The Golden Mile and ABC1’s Sisters Of War and Rake have also received multiple nominations, as has Ten’s The Circle and Talkin’ ‘Bout Your GenerationSBS also received a rare Most Popular nomination for Who Do You Think You Are?

TV Week is yet to announce this year’s inductee into the Logie Awards’ Hall of Fame.

An ABC personality might win a gold Logie? Not normally, but Hills is in there with a chance this year.
