  1. Not surprised Scott Cam got nominated for gold given how hard Nine pushed for him during the voting period. Every time I watched something on Nine a promo aired saying to vote for him and The Block.

  2. I only hope the weather gods do not deliver an unseasonably sweltering hot Gold Logie day from Melbourne’s 4 seasons Lucky Dip.

    Because with Scott Cam in the running, and especially if House Rules has commenced over on Network Seven, this years Gold Logie awards could even be continued over for a second day.

    I wonder what odds Tom Waterhouse and Sportsbet would offer on that?

  3. Why is Timomatic nominated, he is certainly not a new talent, channel 9 had to get someone in again as they did last year with the American guy from The Voice. Always reckon the Logies is rigged. Wont be watching again this year that’s for sure.

  4. Well the Gold Logie nominees are pretty weak with a couple of exceptions but it looks to be a race in two with Asher Keddie and Carrie Bickmore although I think Scott Cam is a bit of a dark horse and wouldn’t suprise me in the slightest if he won.

    The real intrigue (as always) lies in the Outstanding catagories as some top notch shows/actors/actressess in contention

  5. I cannot believe A place to call home did not get nominated in best drama. Its a bit confusing when winners and losers which I love gets nominated but none of the people in it get in for acting awards.

    Scott Cam what the hell? Was there a social campaign for him or something.

    Good to see Marta get nominated. I hope Abby or Bonnie win best new talent.

    Id love to see Carrie win gold but Asher deserves it this year.

    Wow no masterchef in best reality. That is certainly sending a message.

  6. The nominations weren’t a grand live event covered by all networks like in previous years? Just a low key event this year so it seems. It used to be held in the morning so the breakfast shows could cover it if my memory serves me correctly.

  7. I hope steve peacock doesn’t win gold. Scott Cam for Gold? Weird. Go Asher!

    Happy Bonnie Sven is nominated… but I don’t want any of the Braxton boys to get any awards. Over them.

    Isn’t Kylie performing as well??

  8. Scott Cam? Seriously? What the hell has this world come to? Awful decision but yet again another Nine plot if you ask me. It happens each year. Last year it was Hamish and Andy, the year before it was Karl and this year its Scott Cam. Its pathetic that he gets the nod over some really talented people who have missed out.

    Really surprised Rafters and A Place to Call Home have been snubbed in the popular categories but its awesome news for Miss Fisher. Its a great series on ABC and i hope it wins it.

  9. a good mixture of nominations overall.

    A little surprised to see Scott Cam nominated for both Gold and Silver (and I’m a Block fan). Good on him I guess.

    Good to see ABC nominated for more logies this time around. A shame that Neighbours isn’t nominated anywhere.

  10. Go Asher for both silver and gold! Good to see Essie nominated.
    For new talent, Caren must be the one to win.
    Well, I am really surprised with Scott Cam’s nomination for gold.

  11. Sad that Neighbours are nominated (Will they ever be nominated again?). Johnny Ruffo does not deserve to be nominated. He’s terrible at acting (the worst actor currently on Home and Away).

  12. That is the most random assortment of personalities for Gold I have ever seen. Scott Cam is an awful host if you ask me, and Bickmore might be good on The Project but not on SYTYCDA. Go Asher or Essie!

    A lot more ABC nominations then I would have expected, did they run a campaign or something..

  13. Asher will have Gold in the bag I’d say! Suprised and great to see Essie nominated for Gold. Really hoping Johnny Ruffo doesn’t win the most popular new talent, literally some of the worst acting I have ever seen on home and away and having been watching for 20 years.

  14. I may be incorrect, but I was thinking that the Most Popular New Talent includes Caren Pistorius’s character name for Paper Giants: Magazine Wars.

  15. surprised that PTTR and APTCH were snubbed, while the lowest rating 7 drama winners & losers gets a nod.

    both seasons of MC missing out should send a message. bondi rescue is a surprise in popular reality, but i wonder if The Block is happy about 2 noms in the same category, could split the vote.

    actor/actress/presenter/lifestyle/sport are what i expected, pretty similar to last year.
