Broadcasters congratulate Logie nominees
Nomination reactions from ABC, Foxtel & Binge.
Broadcasters are celebrating their nominations today in the 63rd TV Week Logie Awards.
ABC’s Chief Content Office, Chris Oliver-Taylor said, “I congratulate all our nominees – from our presenters and cast members to all those behind the scenes who have contributed to giving Australians some of the best shows found anywhere in the world. We look forward to a very successful Logies night in Sydney on Sunday 30 July.”
Foxtel Group Chief Content and Commercial Officer, Amanda Laing said: “We’re thrilled to be recognised with 17 nominations across our stellar slate of local Original drama, lifestyle and reality programming. We’ve had a massive year launching Australian Originals to critical acclaim and smashing viewing records as well as green-lighting exciting new projects for the future. Along with individual nominations, these nods showcase our commitment to discovering and supporting Australian stories and talent on screen as well as producing premium television for our customers. Our beloved colleague Brian Walsh was behind every single one of these nominations particularly his passion project The Twelve so we celebrate and honour him as part of this incredible recognition. The Logies are a special moment each year to celebrate the Australian television industry and our collective achievements and we look forward to the Ceremony on July 30.”
Patrick Brammall and Harriet Dyer said: “We’re over the moon about these nommies! Thank you TV Week Logies! To be considered for Outstanding is so exciting; but for Patty to be considered for Popular and not Harri actually makes sense. Just ask her mates from high school.”
Alison Hurbert-Burns, Binge Executive Director, said: “We are thrilled to see our Binge original, Colin from Accounts, nominated at this year’s Logie Awards. This show has been such a delight to create with Patrick and Harriet and our producing partners Easy Tiger Productions and CBS Studios and has captured Australians hearts. Since debuting in December, Colin From Accounts has gone on to become the most watched Original scripted series in the history of Binge and the Foxtel Group and has charmed audiences overseas.”
