The 59th TV Week Logie Awards are still six months away on Sunday April 23 2017, but public voting opened this week and actually closes on December 18, four months before the awards night.
The 2017 awards will again be held at the Crown Entertainment Complex’s Palladium Room in Melbourne and broadcast on the Nine Network.
“We want TV fans across the country to let us know which television shows and stars they have enjoyed watching this year,” TV Week editor Emma Nolan said.
The official voting period for the 59th TV Week Logie Awards opened on Monday November 21, and closes on Sunday December 18. This is the public’s only chance to vote in the “Best” categories, which include Best New Talent, Best Actress, Best Actor and Best Presenter.
It is also the only chance viewers have to cast their vote for who they think should take out the TV Week Gold Logie Award for Best Personality on Australian TV.
In 2017, there will be 27 Logies awarded on the night, including the new award of Most Outstanding Factual Or Documentary Program.
“We are thrilled to be bringing together Australia’s biggest stars for this fantastic event,” TV Week general manager Jayne Ferguson said. “It is a shorter voting period this year, so we are urging people to head to tvweeklogieawards.com.au and cast their votes early.”
