  1. @Cara it’s not the rules suddenly changed. It’s just that the people at TV Week are continuing making mistakes. Since Chrissie Swan’s is in the running for Most Popular New Female Talent, she shouldn’t be on the list of eligible TV Presenters. And since voting for the Gold Logie is based on people eligible for Popular Actor, Actress and TV Presenter, Swan’s name appears of the drop down list when voting.

    I think Poh Ling Yeow and Chrissie Swan are the only two people in the running for New Talent that also appeared in a Silver Category (Most Popular TV Presenter).

    The rules did not change. Other New Talent candidates are not eligible for the Gold Logie.

    Charles Cottier, Dan Mor, Eddie Perfect, Ewen Page, Firass Dirani, Jordan Smith, Josh Flinn, Kayne Tremills, Kevin Hofbauer, Kris Smith, Liam Renton, Manu Feildel, Matthew Hayden, Nick Stathopoulos, Richard Davies, Ryan Corr, Ryan O’Kane, Scott Black, Amberley Lobo, Emma Booth, Hannah Marshall, Jordy Lucas, Julie Goodwin, Kelly Paterniti, Lily Serna, Lisa Gormley, Rhiannon Fish, Samara Weaving, Valentina Novakovic and Xenia Goodwin are possible nominees for the New Talent Logies, but were not eligible for Most Popular Actress, Most Popular Actor and Most Popular TV Presenter.

    Their names and pictures did not appear in those three Silver Categories or the dropdown selection for the Gold Logie, unlike Chrissie Swan and Poh Ling Yeow.

  2. Didn’t it say on the voting form that Most Popular New Talent nominees were not eligible for the Gold Logie? It’s definitely been that way in recent years, so unless they’ve changed it this year, the list above is definitely wrong. However, since David would know the rules better than any of us, it seems unlikely that he would include Chrissie’s name if she wasn’t eligible….so the rules have probably changed.

  3. @Ben – it is fairly common knowledge that ratings aren’t necessarily a true indication of how popular a show really is with only several hundred meters recording viewer habits nationwide. The Logies is open to everyone to vote so could in fact give an even more accurate idea of what shows and celebs people actually like.

  4. Chrissie beats Carrie hands down in my opinion. I still haven’t got over Carrie winning last year as she is a an average host at best.
    PTTR peeps will win again.
