Logie Awards") are an annual institution that celebrate Australian television, sponsored and organised by magazine TV Week
TV Week
since 1959. Awards are presented in public and industry voted categories, with the highest honour and most widely publicised award being the Gold Logie, which is awarded to the Most Popular Personality on Australian Television for the previous year. The event has been strongly associated with showbiz personality Bert Newton, who has hosted the ceremony on the most occasions. Over the years, the Logies have been hosted in Melbourne
Melbourne

History[edit] Originally known as the " TV Week
TV Week
Awards", the awards were instigated by TV Week
TV Week
magazine with the first voting coupons provided in the magazine in late 1958, two years after the introduction of television in Australia. The first awards were presented on 15 January 1959 on an episode of In Melbourne
Melbourne
Tonight. Only Melbourne
Melbourne
television personalities were nominated and awards were given in eight categories, including two for American programs.[1] The most prestigious award in 1959 was Star of the Year presented to entertainer Graham Kennedy. The following year, Kennedy coined the name Logie Awards, to honour Scottish engineer, innovator after the contributor to the development of television as a practical medium, John Logie Baird. [2] The Logie statuette was designed by Alec De Lacy, chief designer for Melbourne-based trophy makers KG Luke Ltd. The first Gold Logie, the equivalent of the Star of the Year Award, was also presented to Graham Kennedy in 1960. The record for most wins goes to Kennedy and Ray Martin. The latest ceremony, the Logie Awards
Logie Awards
of 2017, were held on 23 March 2017, with the Gold Logie
Gold Logie
winner being Samuel Johnson. Logie milestones[edit] In 1960, the ceremony is coined "Logie Awards" to honour inventor John Logie Baird, by Graham Kennedy, after he won what was previously known as the "Star of the Year Award". In 1961, the awards ceremony was televised for the first time, with the ABC screening the first half hour of the awards in Sydney. In 1962, Australian variety presenter, singer and actress Lorrae Desmond, best known for her role as Shirley Gilroy on A Country Practice was the first female star to win a Gold Logie, for her music variety program The Lorrae Desmond
Lorrae Desmond
Show. In 1963, the planned televised ceremony was cancelled due to the host, Tony Hancock
Tony Hancock
cancelling his trip to Australia. In 1968, there was no award for the Most Popular Female in Television. According to Bert Newton, who was hosting that year, "it appears no one was deemed worthy enough to receive it". He pleaded with the producers to never be put in that position again.[3] In 1973, the media was invited for the first time to attend the Logies. In 1974, Number 96 star Pat McDonald became the first "soap star" actress (not television personality) to win the Gold Logie. In 1976, the first and only fictional character to win a Logie was Norman Gunston, with the award being presented to portrayer Garry McDonald, who appeared to except the award in character. In 1984, the Hall of Fame
Hall of Fame
Logie was introduced by TV Week, awarded to recognise outstanding and continued contribution to television by an individual or program with the first induction being former conductor turned producer and television pioneer Hector Crawford (see below, under Logie Hall of Fame). In 1988, Actress and future international pop star Kylie Minogue became the youngest person to win a Gold Logie
Gold Logie
(aged 19) for her role as Charlene Mitchell

in Neighbours. Agro's Cartoon Connection, starring Jamie Dunn as Agro, won seven consecutive Logies in seven consecutive nominations. In 2006, a new Logies category was introduced, named Graham Kennedy Award for Most Outstanding Newcomer, to honour Kennedy's career and legacy and to commemorate the 50th year of broadcasting of television in Australia. In 2016, the Logies accepted nominations from locally produced digital content. In 2010, Ray Meagher became the oldest person to win an award (age 66), for his portrayal of Alf Stewart

in Home and Away. In 2017, TV Week
TV Week
announced that after 30 years, the awards ceremony will no longer be held in Melbourne, due to the withdrawal of financial support by the Victorian government. The Logie awards ceremony will be held at The Star Gold Coast
The Star Gold Coast
in the Gold Coast, Queensland for four years, with support of the Queensland government.[4][5] Logies Hall of Fame, productions and winners[edit] The prestigious Logie Hall of Fame
Hall of Fame
was first introduced in 1982; former conductor, turned television producer and pioneer and founder of Crawford Productions, Hector Crawford was the first inductee. The induction was a posthumous honour for TV cameraman Neil Davis, actor Maurie Fields, conservationist Steve Irwin, news anchor Brian Naylor and journalist Peter Harvey. In 2017, Kerri-Anne Kennerley
Kerri-Anne Kennerley
was only the third woman to be inducted after Ruth Cracknell and Noni Hazlehurst. Four Corners, Neighbours, Play School and Home and Away
Home and Away
are the only programs that have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.[6] Nomination and voting procedures[edit] Public voting[edit] Voting for the Most Popular Logie categories is done using an online form, or by SMS (short message service) voting for the final nominees. Ten of the Logie Award
Logie Award
categories are fan awards. In the past, the "Most Popular" Logies categories were voted by the readers of TV Week magazine using a coupon. SMS (short message service) voting was introduced in 2006 for the Gold Logie. In 2008, internet votes could be cast for the first time without having to buy a copy of the TV Week
TV Week
magazine.[7] From 2016, Public voting for the awards usually lasts for four weeks, beginning in December/January, while the ceremony itself was in late April or early May. However, in 2018, voting began in March with the 2018 Logie Awards held in July. Industry voting[edit] The Most Outstanding categories are voted on by a jury comprising members of the Australian TV industry peers. There were 15 categories in the industry awards at the Logie Awards
Logie Awards
of 2018. Eligibility[edit] To be eligible to receive a Logie, a program must be Australian produced, set in Australia and have a predominantly Australian cast. Although in other years there has been a Logie for overseas programs, these awards are no longer part of the awards. People eligible for a Logie must have appeared on an Australian-produced show that was broadcast on Australian television in the previous year. There are long-held suspicions that network publicists engage in mass voting to rig the results. However, no hard evidence had emerged for this, other than the experiment by the satirical newspaper The Chaser, who attempted to have low-profile SBS newsreader Anton Enus nominated for the Gold Logie. They did so by getting their small readership to buy copies of TV Week
TV Week
and vote for Enus for the award. While the attempt failed (they came "reasonably close", to earning a nomination for Enus, according to a " TV Week
TV Week
Insider"), their failure gives some cause for the widespread derision in the industry (particularly the 'quality' end) towards the popular-vote awards.[8] Community television, Channel 31, personalities and shows are eligible for nomination for Logies, however since their audiences are far smaller than those of the commercial channels and public broadcasters, they are at a tremendous disadvantage. For a time they had their own community television awards, known as the Antenna Awards. Despite this, in 2009 The Logies were dogged by minor controversy after organisers refused to allow an acclaimed community television show, The Bazura Project, to be nominated in the category of Outstanding Comedy Show, stating; As TV Week
TV Week
does not cover community television within the magazine, we are unable to consider individual programs on this platform. The ABC's Media Watch program first reported the story on Monday 9 March 2009,[9] with many media outlets covering the growing support for the community television program since.

Awards ceremony[edit] The Logie Awards
Logie Awards
ceremony is televised and became generally more elaborate as years went by. The awards have mostly been held in a ballroom, rather than a theatre, which is common for the Emmy Awards and Academy Awards. Dinner is served just before the ceremony and drinks are served during the ceremony. Bert Newton, who has won the Gold Logie
Gold Logie
four times, hosted the awards a total of 19 times. GTV-9/ Nine Network
Nine Network
is also strongly associated with the history of the Logies. Nine has hosted the awards 46 times in their 60-year history. Controversies[edit] In 1973, American actor Michael Cole generated controversy after accepting an award while apparently drunk, uttering the word "shit" in a short, incoherent acceptance speech. This was the first time the word had been said on Australian television.[14] According to Bert Newton, Channel Nine received thousands of complaints about the use of the word, however, when it was edited for the repeat transmission "they got double the calls complaining it had been dropped."[3] In 1979, during a notable appearance with Muhammad Ali
Muhammad Ali
as co-presenter, Newton made a comment "I like the boy!" (in reference to a series of TV advertisements Bert had recently done). That was seen as racist by Ali, although Newton was oblivious to the term and claimed this was not his intention. Ali was upset at the comment and a full apology was issued by Newton and the Awards producers. The most difficult guest to interact with, according to Newton was Vic Morrow in 1967. He would just stand there saying nothing, silently handing out the Logies. According to Bert, "every so often, I'd say 'how are you going, Vic?' and he would just nod his head."[3] Performers[edit] Many local and overseas performers have appeared at the Logie Awards ceremony. While it had been a tradition to choose performers with a television connection, this has not always been the case. In 2011, Katy Perry
Katy Perry
performed an opening number and then presented the Best Children's Show award with comedy personalities Hamish and Andy. 2012 saw One Direction
