Logie Awards cancelled a second time
Logies are postponed a second time -and the knock-on effect sees shows miss out altogether.
TV Week has announced the Logie Awards have been postponed for a second time due to the ongoing COVID crisis.
The 2020 awards were originally cancelled with a reschedule date of November 28 on the Gold Coast.
Fiona Connolly, Group Publisher, Are Media said: “We are disappointed to have to cancel this year’s TV Week Logie Awards after charging ahead with plans to return for a bigger than ever event on the Gold Coast this November. Unfortunately, our current COVID cases and travel restrictions leave us no choice. But we will return to Queensland mid 2022 and promise the TV Week Logie Awards will bring an overdue and deserved night of glamour, celebration and recognition of Australia’s outstanding television industry.”
With the Awards postponed last year and cancelled this year the eligibility period for the 2022 TV Week Logie Awards will be from 1st January, 2021 through to 31st March, 2022.
Last held in mid 2019, this effectively sees a backlog of potential nominees across 2019 and 2020 now historically removed from eligibility.
A date for a 2022 event will be confirmed later.
Logie Awards cancelled. Didn’t happen last year either.
They were set for November 28 on the Gold Coast.
Before you tweet smart arse replies…which I usually encourage & find amusing….it does mean jobs and does mean public recognition for hard work.
