Several unlikely Gold Logie nominations have led to questions being asked over the 2011 Logie Awards voting.
The three nominations of The Circle co-host Chrissie Swan for the Gold Logie, Silver Logie for most popular presenter and most popular new talent was the big surprise following the announcement yesterday for the May 1 awards.
Other surprises include the nominations of Asher Keddie and Karl Stefanovic for the top award and the one single nomination for ratings juggernaut MasterChef for most popular reality programme.
Swan’s nomination is being questioned given she is one of four co-hosts of The Circle, a show that draws around 70,000 viewers on average per day.
Packed to the Rafters has proved the biggest hit with fans, pulling 15 nominations in total, including Gold Logie nods for Jessica Marais and 2009 winner Rebecca Gibney.
Votes were cast this year by TV Week readers in both print and online mediums and are officially audited.
