  4. Why has’nt Kerri-Ann been nominated for anything? She’s been on our screens for thirty years or more, given more to T.V. than most, yet she is always overlooked. I think she should be nominated for services to T.V. at least, and you know she’s got the best pair of legs in the business. (KAK For Gold).

  5. Not to take anything away from the achievements, but does anyone else find it insulting that five out of ten New Talent nominees aren’t actually new talent? Firass Durani was on one of the many Power Rangers series, Chrissie, Julie, and Poh were all reality contestants, and Manu’s done Ready Steady Cook for years before MKR. Where are the actual new talents, like Kyle and/or Chris from Neighbours (Chris especially — those storylines wouldn’t have been easy for a heterosexual actor even if the writing was high-quality), or Anna Gare?

    That said, I am glad they’ve cut down from 8 to 6 for the Gold Logie this year.

    • Actually Anna Gare had her own series on Pay TV too. But I agree it is a moving target. Check other story on Logie voting campaigns for more in-depth discussion on New Talent. Click on the Logies Tag.

  6. Nominees from Nine’s drama offerings are conspicuously absent. If their endlessly compromised “ensemble” approach to drama isn’t popular then what is going on at HQ, cos it sure isn’t occupying the “quality” part of the spectrum either,

  7. This year Home and Away has 2 nominations. Last year they had 11. Needless to say, I am pleased that the outcome of the industry awards is not being determined by a handful of Soapie magazine readers.

  8. @JJabe couldn’t agree more, it really shows the crap on TV with these nominations. 90% of the people nominated wouldn’t even get a mention if we were actually making some decent shows these days.

  9. Looks as though a lot of you have taken a dose of cranky pills since the nominations were announced.

    You as ‘the viewers’ voted these people in…Lighten up guys.

    If you don’t like the nominations then vote a little harder for your favourite in 2012.
