Logie 2012 voting opens

By David Knox on December 5, 2011 / Filed Under News 53

Voting is now open on the 2012 Logie Awards.

TV Week is now accepting votes across 11 Popular categories.

Online voting is available at their website via extensive lists of potential nominees. In recent years these lists have expanded significantly, although they still don’t offer an “Other” if your favourite has been left off the list.

All those individuals eligible for Silver Logies are automatically eligible for the Gold Logie, but if they have been left off the shortlists, they are already out of the running.

If your favourite has already missed out, let us know who it is?

The 2012 Logie Awards will be held at Crown in Melbourne on April 15th and screened on Nine.

    How about less cooking crap and reality TV and allow some Artistic shows on our teleies,such as Graeme Stevensons ‘Colour In Your Life’,the more how to paint and draw shows on tele the better.

  2. Elisabeth Rio January 13, 2012 at 1:03 pm -

    Art Studio is an excellent program. It, surely is a winner.
    Colour in your life is another show worth watching .

  3. Crownies Fan December 22, 2011 at 10:12 pm -

    I am also wondering why Hamish Michael who plays Richard Stirling in Crownies has not been nominated in the Popular New Talent category, as in my opinion he is very deserving of this award.

  4. ElizaJo December 9, 2011 at 3:20 am -

    @David Knox. Irrespective if there were” too many” uniform based dramas, viewers across the globe watched and liked them. Rescue, rush and sea patrol are well received in the uk and further afield yet tv companies fail to listen to their viewers and keep axing them! In the words of jo horsburgh,” whilst their still going strong”!!

  5. Jane Turner December 7, 2011 at 7:23 pm -

    Baz duBois from the Renovators – not even a nominee! He would have my vote for sure. Loved The Renovators. Jane

  6. David Knox December 6, 2011 at 7:28 pm -

    MiniSeries and Telemovies will be eligible in the Outstanding peer-voted categories. Shows always have a life expectancy, so I don’t adhere to the theory we only renew crap. Most of the series that ended were linked by procedural / action (Rush, Sea Patrol, Rescue, City Homicide, EW 101) and there was fatigue over so many uniforms at once. Underbelly will chalk up 5 seasons next year and still rating well.

  7. Spirited-TV.net December 6, 2011 at 7:00 pm -

    @Nik C we agree completely! Pretty pathetic that all these shows are getting nominations and subsequent awards for being so ‘outstanding’ …but apparently not outstanding enough to continue on tv?? Oh, Australian TV, you realise this effectively says you primarily renew crap, yes?

    Well said @Isiebeau, would be great to see Spirited get a Logie or two.

  8. Leonie December 6, 2011 at 11:40 am -

    Most popular reality show. The Renovators leonie

  9. Leonie December 6, 2011 at 11:23 am -

    Best new talent. Hands down the most natural, caring and real,….. Baz from the Renovators???? Come on what is going on? Why wasn’t he nominated

  10. Nik C December 6, 2011 at 10:55 am -

    @ Stan
    I stopped buying TV week long ago because of the constant spoiling of stoylines in both local soaps and US dramas. So I agree that it has little relevance to many!

  11. Nik C December 6, 2011 at 10:29 am -

    I realise the ABC are investing in Auyssie drama and 9 and 10 have new dramas in the pipeline but I lookat rhe current Most Popular Drama’s and there are not many being renewed. See my list below:
    Blood Brothers (one off film)
    Cloudstreet (one off mini series)
    Crownies (axed/ not renewed)
    East West 101(axed)
    Home And Away (continuing)
    Neighbours (continuing)
    Offspring (continuing)
    Packed To The Rafters(continuing)
    Paper Giants: The Birth Of Cleo (one off mini series)
    Rescue Special Ops (axed)
    Rush (axed)
    Sea Patrol (axed)
    SLiDE (unknown renewal)
    Spirited (axed)
    The Slap (one off mini series)
    Underbelly Files: Infiltration (one off mini series)
    Underbelly Files: Tell Them Lucifer Was Here (one off mini series)
    Underbelly Files: The Man Who Got Away (one off mini series)
    Underbelly: Razor (another spin-off)
    Wild Boys (axed)
    Winners & Losers (continuing)

    Also why is there not a Drama series and mini series/film category? Isn’t this split for Most Outstanding?

    Networks some of these shows axed were popular and critically respected. I think it is sad there is less continuing drama where viewers invest time and emotion into characters lives!

  12. ElizaJo December 6, 2011 at 4:47 am -

    I think RSO should get some recognition. I know you Australians will disagree but it has a growing fanbase in the uk,Ireland and us/ Canada via the Internet just a shame channel 9 didn’t see that. Also Andrew lees is a great actor and will go far.

  13. Stan December 6, 2011 at 2:49 am -

    John from Sunny Coast, count me as another moron who still buys TV Week! I’d be lost without David Stratton’s excellent Free-To-Air & Pay television movie reviews & star-ratings. Because of that, I guess I’m another one of those brainless readers who need to keep up with all the latest Home & Away/Neighbours gossip.

  14. BIlly C December 6, 2011 at 2:42 am -

    David is it true that a network can only submit a certain number of people or programs for each category? Seems a bit silly when SBS and ABC have so many documentary and light entertainment programs. Again it’s ridiculous not to have a popular comedy program.

  15. David Knox December 6, 2011 at 1:14 am -

    Nominations are drawn from network submissions. That’s the first starting point.

  16. Ed December 6, 2011 at 1:06 am -

    @ Tim – I agree, I don’t know how Ten got away with that!

  17. Liz December 6, 2011 at 1:01 am -

    I would have expected to see Brendon Moer as male presenter and Baz from Renovators as best new talent

  18. Jimbo K December 5, 2011 at 11:58 pm -

    All the cast from ”Swift and Shift Couriers” and ”Housos” are ommitted too from the acting catergories.

    Barry Cassidy is once again not listed for Presenter (for his roles on Insiders and Offsiders). Speaking of Offsiders, it hasn’t been listed for Sports Catergory once since it began in 2005. A shame really

    @ Tim – i agree with you. I don’t know why sporting coverage is now included into the Sports Program section. I find it strange too. I’m happy though to see Cycling Central and it’s host Mike Tomalaris listed or a change

    No Ben Elton anywhere? Boo hoo! ;)

  19. Isiebeau December 5, 2011 at 11:40 pm -

    Spirited (and anyone Spirited-related) for all the awards!

  20. Matt December 5, 2011 at 10:42 pm -

    Angry Boys and Chris Lilley are surprising omissions.
    Also disappointing that Laid and Lawrence Leung are not included.

  21. David Knox December 5, 2011 at 4:30 pm -

    JB: I already wrote about AACTA nominations last week, formerly known as the AFIs.

  22. JB December 5, 2011 at 4:08 pm -

    Pffft Logies, what a meaningless award and an embarrassment for the industry. When’s the AFI Awards. They have some prestige to them. Logies are pathetic. It was already that way, but then Karl won a Gold and well that killed the last bit of dignity the Logies had

  23. John December 5, 2011 at 3:58 pm -

    I agree with you Kasey it’s a great show, although I remember some of the story lines.

  24. Nik C December 5, 2011 at 2:55 pm -

    oops Andrea Demetriades as Lina Badir was a new talent nod.

  25. Nik C December 5, 2011 at 2:53 pm -

    Hamish Michael as Richard Stirling, Andrea Demetriades as Lina Badir in Crownies both missed out on new talent & Popular categories! Both deserved a New Talent option!!

  26. David Knox December 5, 2011 at 2:52 pm -

    Try now.

  27. Vinny December 5, 2011 at 2:36 pm -

    I get this message when trying to access the hyperlink…David put there…

    Incorrect Paramater Value Passed
    Sorry, access to the survey is prohibited.

  28. Jon December 5, 2011 at 2:31 pm -

    @effdee – Agreed: Laid was great fun.
    At Home with Julia was topical but nothing special (hence will probably win the Logie).

  29. TM December 5, 2011 at 2:16 pm -

    Not sure where all the “it’s only for TV Week readers” stuff is coming from anymore, since you can now vote online and never need look at a TV Week.

  30. Dan December 5, 2011 at 2:13 pm -

    I agree with mate and Bruce Banner – Jackie Woodburne for Gold! See the campaign video on Youtube: youtube.com/jackie4gold (I hope you don’t mind me posting the link David)

  31. Harry December 5, 2011 at 2:06 pm -

    Vote #1 Nicole Da Silva! She really does deserve to win the Silver this year for her perfect acting in Rush for the last 4 years – this season she really impressed me. All the best to her.

  32. Warrigul December 5, 2011 at 1:34 pm -

    Gemma Pranita for Most Popular New Talent. :)

  33. Kasey December 5, 2011 at 1:26 pm -

    I would like to vote for Sons & Daughters as top drama. It’s the first time I’ve ever seen the show and easily the best drama of the year.

  34. John from Sunny Coast December 5, 2011 at 12:46 pm -

    Get rid of the Logies. They don’t mean a thing. Voting by a few thousand morons who still buy TV week does not represent the feelings of the majority of Australians.

  35. tmorgan December 5, 2011 at 12:01 pm -

    Matt Preston for Best New Female Talent!

  36. Qubec December 5, 2011 at 11:44 am -

    Can someone remind me again, what’s the difference between the Logies and the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards?

  37. Tim December 5, 2011 at 11:36 am -

    Why are there three sports events (AFL GF, F1 GP, Moto GP) included among the sports panel/sports news programs in the ‘Sports Program’ category? Are these events now eligible? If so, why just these ones, and not every sporting event?

    @effdee – ‘Laid’ was quite nice, but honestly, was it really a patch on the ‘Julia’ show – for daring, performance or sheer laughs?

    Where is Laid?
    At Home With Julia may have been slightly amusing, but Laid should be there instead!

    Voting was brought forward to December in 2010 off the back of the ratings year under a number of structural changes. Next year Nine had also requested to have the event run as soon as Easter ratings ended. Both improvements.

    Looks like the public voted categories are opening earlier than usual. It usually opens around january/febuary and viewers are expected to vote for programmes of the previous year. Also ive noticed the ceromony is pulled forward to mid April instead of being held early-mid May as it done in recent years.

    I wonder why the organisers have suddenly pulled everything forward even if it is only by a few weeks. Are they worried the revamped AFI awards will steal abit of the thier thunder and Logies could be looked as being less relevant or too late?

    Harsh. Ian Smith was nominated for Gold so was Natalie Blair. Who do you think reads TV Week?

    @ Bruce Banner & Mate, as if Jackie Woodburne would ever win Gold. She wouldn’t even have a chance at winning Silver. Perhaps if she was working in a more critically acclaimed drama, and not Neighbours, she might have more of a chance :)

    Hamish Michael from Crownies? The H&A alumni on that show got mentions (of course), plus Andrea Demetriades in the New Talent and Marta Dusseldorp…

    On the whole though, the lists do seem more comprehensive than usual – as well as slightly more accurate (eg. more multiple roles identified for individuals).

    @Anthony Mai Totally agree with you. His show was fantastic, but seems to all but forgotten, i’m still awaiting a dvd release too.

    I pray that there’s multiple voting intoroduced

    Who could be bothered voting….I mean…. does anybody really care?????

    City Homicide is Nowhere to be seen!! And even though they were axed, the air date of their final episode still qualifies them for voting. The fact that they are not even eligable is just wrong and not very fair at all!

    All of the major Crownies actors got a look-in except Hamish Michael.

    Lawrence Leung and his brilliant show, “Unbelievable” is nowhere to be seen. It’s definitely one of the top Aussie shows this year for me… What a shame. (it better appear in the Outstanding Comedy/Light Entertainment!)
