The Annual TV Week Logie Award nomiations have been published by the magazine – but are they kidding?
Each category has so many nominees that is makes it hard for the viewer to decide. Shouldn’t a TV week or a Logie commitee lower it down to at least 10 so we can choose easier.
We know that the top few will be chosen in the running for the awards, but really the lists are endless. If your favourite isn’t there – you can’t even vote for them.
Anyway here are Throng’s picks in each category – love it or hate it. It will be followed by some of TV weeks listed nominees, that can be viewed at www.tvweek.com.au
