ABC Chief Content Officer Chris Oliver-Taylor said: “We are delighted with the number of nominations that the ABC received and thrilled for all of the ABC’s success including Werner Production’s Crazy Fun Park, Tony Armstrong’s A Dog’s World and Kitty Flanagan for Fisk.”

Armstrong, backing up from his 2022 Graham Kennedy Award win for most popular new talent, was acknowledged by ABC News Director Justin Stevens.

“Tony Armstrong has been a star since day one on the ABC, he is a massive talent and has a huge future in front of him,” Stevens said. “We are thrilled to see him win back-to-back Logie Awards and can’t wait to see him flourish in coming years. As Tony has said, this is also recognition of the News Breakfast team and their outstanding teamwork day after day.“

Australian Story continues to produce captivating human-interest stories week after week that resonate with Australian audiences. Australian Story, this year presented by Leigh Sales, won Most Popular Current Affairs Program.

Australian Story is a gem,” Stevens said

“Week after week combining compelling storytelling with the highest quality journalism. For years the team has showcased the lives of countless Australians and inspired us with stories of resilience and inspiration.”


Foxtel Group Chief Content and Commercial Officer, Amanda Laing said: “The Logies are a special moment that bring the industry together to recognise the best of Australian storytelling and the Foxtel Group is honored to be the most recognised with seven Logies. It has been such a thrill to see these incredible shows come to life and we thank the remarkable creative teams and the actors along with our wonderful production partners for their work in delivering such compelling stories.

“Being recognised with seven awards on the same night Brian Walsh is inducted into the Hall of Fame is in itself a fitting tribute to our dear colleague and friend.”


Alison Hubert-Burns, Binge Executive Director, said: “We are thrilled to see Colin from Accounts recognised at tonight’s Logie Awards as the equal most awarded series with three awards including for Most Outstanding Comedy Program. It was a joy to make this series with the incredibly talented Patrick and Harriet, and our producing partners at Easy Tiger and CBS Studios. 

“It was in the lockdown days of Covid when Brian Walsh and I first read the scripts, laughed out loud and made it our mission to get the show made. We are thrilled it has connected so strongly with audiences here and around the world.

“We congratulate Patrick and Harriet on their individual awards as Outstanding Actor and Actress along with the talented cast and creatives on creating such a heart-warming and hilarious show and their award-winning performances.’’

  1. Was quite telling that a lot of the drama and non reality categories appeared to have barely or no nominations from 7-9-10, a bit embarrassing, seeming Binge, Foxtel, Stan and Netflix doing the heavy lifting in those categories, maybe a sign of things to come as well with the streamers required to spend certain amounts on local content, the networks should be concerned as quite noticeable and good publicity for the streamers.
