Stan certainly has reason to be happy today as the first Australian streaming service to land a Logie nomination.

No Activity was nominated for Most Outstanding Comedy Series and Most Outstanding Supporting Actor for both Tim Minchin and Dan Wyllie.

The comedy about an uneventful stake-out begins production on a second season in June.

CEO, Mike Sneesby, said: “Stan has set out to be a pioneer of Australia’s evolving television landscape and these nominations are yet another landmark moment for Australian TV.

“We are committed to supporting the local production industry and producing the highest quality Australian television that will not only stand amongst the best at home, but also in international markets.

“We are incredibly proud to receive three Logie nominations for No Activity and congratulate the team at Jungle, the cast and crew, especially Tim Minchin, Dan Wyllie and creators Patrick Brammall and Trent O’Donnell.”

Jason Burrows, Executive Producer, added: “It’s a total disgrace to nominate a show about a bunch of people sitting around doing nothing. Definitely rigged!

“A big congratulations to the incredible team and a huge thank you to Stan for providing an avenue for brave, world-class content. What Stan is doing is really exciting for the future of Australia’s production industry.”

Stan also has the 6 part miniseries Wolf Creek premiering in May.

  1. Interesting. I’m sure the fact that the Logies are broadcast on Stan’s parent company Channel 9 had absolutely nothing to do with these nominations?
