After a bumper year of television there are a whopping 21 local dramas up for consideration this year, including newcomers A Place To Call Home, Wentworth, Better Man, Power Games: The Packer-Murdoch Story, The Time Of Our Lives and Wonderland.
“So many star performances, so many amazing shows – what a tough contest it’s going to be!” TV Week editor Emma Nolan said. “Don’t miss your chance to have your say about who takes home a TV Week Logie Award in 2014.
“Voting has never been easier. Check out TV Week our website, www.tvweeklogieawards.com.au, which is now mobile-friendly, as well as social media platforms in order to vote and get the latest news and announcements.”
This year the Logies have dropped the Most Popular Factual category in a bid to shorten the ceremony. For the last 6 years it has been won by TEN’s Bondi Rescue. The Most Outstanding Factual category is understood to remain.
The somewhat controversial Most Popular New Talent category has been merged to become gender non-specific. This year networks have not submitted their international Reality TV judges, instead seeing them represented in the Most Popular Presenter category.
The awards will take place on Sunday, April 27, 2014 at Crown Entertainment Complex’s Palladium Room and broadcast on Nine, but there is no confirmation yet if the ceremony will be live.
Voting closes on March 2nd with nominations to be announced on March 31st.
