The race for Gold is on.


It's that time of year again, *drumroll*, for the TV Week Logie Awards.
If you're not from Australia, there's probably a 99.9% chance of you not having any idea of what the Logies are. Basically they are a sort of lame version of the Daytime Emmy awards. But for some reason I get really excited for them every year. The way I carry on, you'd think I was nominated for the Gold Logie with my only other competition being Daryl Somers. 

Anyway, I'm not nominated for the Logies, I'm not even going, sooo here are the nominees for the 2010 TV Week Logie Awards.

I have a few complaints here. 

1. Why is Paul McDermott nominated for gold? All he does is read off an autocue. I've also heard from a reliable source that he doesn't write any of his own jokes on Good News Week either. I will admit though that I have a personal distaste for McDermott. I'll never forgive him for telling me that I looked like a hippie who'd just flown in from Nimbin. 

2. What happened to the awards (Most Outstanding/Most Popular) for comedy? They have vanished!

Who are your hot favourites? Who would you like to see take out the Gold? Any nominations that you think are complete bullshit?

Haha aw, I remember how excited you got last year, too! :)

I know NOTHING about The Logies, or even TV, in fact, to the point that it's almost embarrassing! (I SWEAR that I don't live underneath a rock!)

i have no idea who any of the best actor/actresses are. i have no knowledge of australian television stars. or the logies. do they still bring some famous american in for the ceremony to try and gain viewers?
