There were plenty of stars and shows who missed out on gaining a nomination at yesterday’s Logie Awards.
But amongst the high profile omissions was Angry Boys, after ABC “forgot” to submit the show for a Popular award. The show still had a shot at Most Outstanding Light Entertainment but lucked out.
The Amazing Race Australia deserved a nod in the Reality category. Nine’s hit Celebrity Apprentice also missed out here.
ABC’s acclaimed The Slap and Paper Giants missed out on a Popular Drama nomination, but are well represented otherwise. Crownies only got a nod for Hamish Michael as Best New Talent (Male).
Top-notch Pay TV drama Tangle also missed out. Killing Time and the brilliant Cloudstreet have 2 -were it not for The Slap the latter would romp home.
The outstanding Go Back To Where You Came From only has one nomination, Most Outstanding Factual -it had better win.
Other surprises included a rare nod for ONE’s iFISH, (along with Neighbours these are rare multichannel nominations), Ready Steady Cook (despite the absence of Peter Everett), and a lazy nod for Getaway which was shuffled off to Saturday arvos on Nine -are people just voting on old faves rather than a 2011 performance?
Community TV, eligible for the second year, also missed out.
Amongst a very long grouping, other shows to miss out included Rove LA, The Family, At Home with Julia, Australia’s Next Top Model, 6:30 with George Negus, Letters and Numbers, Rush, The Hamster Wheel.
TV Tonight readers were again on the money having already shown strong support for Adam Hills, Asher Keddie, Karl Stefanovic and Carrie Bickmore in the TV Tonight Awards in January. Last year readers also gave a big nod to Chrissie Swan ahead of her Gold nomination.
