It’s time for viewers to have their say! The voting period for the 61st TV WEEK Logie Awards is now open! Fans can cast their vote through the official website – tvweeklogieawards.com.au – until the close of voting on Sunday, March 31. 

This is the public’s chance to vote in the “Most Popular” categories, which include Most Popular Actor, Most Popular Actress – and the big one: the TV WEEK Gold Logie Award For Most Popular Personality On Australian TV. 

The glitz and glamour of the 61st TV WEEK Logie Awards will take place on Sunday, June 30, at The Star Gold Coast in Queensland. All the action from the red-carpet arrivals and awards-show celebrations will be telecast on the Nine Network and 9Now. 

“It has been another huge year for Australian TV, so I can’t wait to see who makes the shortlist this year,” TV WEEK editor Thomas Woodgate says. “Viewers are so passionate about their favourite stars and shows, but they need to make their voices heard, so I’m urging everyone to ensure their favourites get their vote!”

Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate says, “Last year we rolled out the red carpet in true Gold Coast style and proved we’re the perfect host for Australian TV’s night of nights.

“I’m delighted to welcome the who’s who of television back to the city this year to enjoy our beautiful beaches, foodie scene and coastal culture.”

Geoff Hogg, Managing Director Queensland for The Star Entertainment Group, says The Star Gold Coast is excited to mark its second year as the home of the Australian television industry’s night of celebration.

“The 2018 Logie Awards put the event and the Gold Coast on the world stage,” Geoff says. “We’ll take this year’s event to another level to reinforce our stunning property and the region as a must-visit destination.

“As the heartbeat of major events on the Gold Coast, we have exciting plans and new ideas to bring the 61st TV WEEK Logie Awards to life at The Star Gold Coast.

“The Star will be abuzz during event week with glamorous on-property activations, viewing parties, VIP events – and, of course, the glittering black-tie and red-carpet main event on June 30.”

The shortlist of nominees for the 2019 TV WEEK Logie Awards will be announced on Sunday, May 26.

And after a successful launch in 2018, Live Voting returns again this year, with voting for the selected nominees opening on Monday, June 24, through to the end of the TV WEEK Logie Awards red-carpet telecast on June 30. During this time, fans will have one more chance to cast their vote in 11 Most Popular categories.

The TV WEEK Logies is supported by the Queensland Government through Tourism and Events Queensland and features on the It’s Live! in Queensland events calendar, worth $800 million to the state’s economy in 2019.
