TV Week 55th Annual Logie Awards: guide

By David Knox on April 6, 2013 / Filed Under News, Top Stories 15

Photo1lg3On Sunday night Nine broadcasts Australian TV’s “night of nights” -the 55th Annual Logie Awards.

There’s no host this year so expect lots of surprises, hopefully the odd intoxicated star, accidental swearing, and some fashion disasters.

Love it or loathe it (and it’s customary to do both) there is no bigger awards event in the country. Sorry AACTAs, this is the nearest we’ll get to our own Oscars.

Guests and media will be relieved to know there’s no One Direction this year. We may be able to hear ourselves think on the Red Carpet this year and accomplish an actual interview.

The broadcast is around 40 minutes behind the room so if you want to avoid being spoiled stay off Twitter (someone is bound to leak something).

If you are viewing anywhere other than on the East Coast, please note TV Tonight is blogging results in sync with Nine’s broadcast AEST.

    Does Peter Overton really have to read the news standing up holding a mike high above the red carpet? Struth I must be getting old!

  2. daveinprogress April 7, 2013 at 3:18 pm -

    Have a great Logies David, and all the regular readers and commenters, Enjoy the spectacle!

  3. Sammee April 7, 2013 at 1:28 pm -

    @clofts- I was thinking the same thing.

  4. David Knox April 7, 2013 at 1:25 pm -

    I dare say early records are lost too. They probably only know the winners.

  5. Carta April 7, 2013 at 1:21 pm -

    Thanks for the responses! I got the commemorative magazine, but it didn’t list all of the nominees and winners. The official TV Week Logies site used to have a partial list of nominees for each year going back a couple of decades, but they scrapped it when they overhauled the website (annoying!). If they had a proper searchable database it would be OK, but as it stands, there’s no way of seeing who was nominated each year.

  6. clofts April 7, 2013 at 11:07 am -

    So the usual oversea musical guests.. as if we don’t have any local musical talent. I’ll just look at the results on here instead I think.

  7. MM April 7, 2013 at 8:55 am -

    Cant stand the logies, the same every year, the presenters try and make jokes, normally not very good, and the recipients just thank mum, dad, sister, uncle, aunt, cousin and everyone in between. Load of trollop.

  8. Stan April 6, 2013 at 4:41 pm -

    TV Week last year put out a book-ish compilation of photos & articles on 53 years of the Logies. Was available from most magazine retailers.

  9. David Knox April 6, 2013 at 3:39 pm -

    Not that I have heard of. Now Bauer owns TV Week we’ll have to see what changes they plan for the Logies brand. I suspect after this weekend they will get a sense of what does and doesn’t work for them. It’s a very expensive venture and hard to see where there profit comes in. Whether a book would be a profit making exercise is debatable. Logies site has a Timeline with archival wins/

  10. Carta April 6, 2013 at 3:33 pm -

    David, do you know if there are any plans at all to publish a book listing all nominees and winners over the past 55 years? Maybe someone should look at something like this to coincide with the 60th anniversary? It would be an amazing reference book to own. Even a digital publication would be interesting.

  11. adzg April 6, 2013 at 2:12 pm -

    I always enjoy the Logies every year however they will be quite predictable as usual! Steve Peacock, Asher Keddie and Hamish Blake will all win the Silvers in their respective categories! However I think Gold may be more unpredictable with the text message voting not happening, someone who truly deserves it may win for once, I’m thinking Asher Keddie and would not be surprised if she nabs it this year.

  12. Aaliyah April 6, 2013 at 10:27 am -

    I hope one of the Red Carpet hosts ask the Neighbours cast on their thoughts about being snubbed.

  13. jimbo k April 6, 2013 at 10:15 am -

    @ Dave – i agree with you. I haven’t seen the hype for the Logies this year compared to previous years. Nine seems to be overloading their ads for The Voice’s return.

    However, i am still looking forward to the logies telecast.

  14. carolemorrissey April 6, 2013 at 9:34 am -

    I know they get bagged a lot, but I love the Logies, even all the hosts in the past that everyone hated. So glad Daylight savings ends so I will be on the same time and not get any spoilers.

  15. Dave April 6, 2013 at 8:04 am -

    I haven’t seen any of the hype or build up to this years Logies as with previous years. It’s all about The Voice
