TV Week Logie Awards 2021
The Logies, Australian television's most enduring and celebrated awards, are on track to return this year after the COVID-19 crisis resulted in their cancellation in 2020.
Not only was the famous gala ceremony scuttled last year, the actual awards themselves were shelved - meaning that 2019 Gold Logie winner TOM GLEESON is still Australia's reigning gold statuette holder.
After the void of 2020, the institution that is the Logies is quietly getting back up to speed and planning is under way on exactly what form the event will take this year.
In recent weeks TV networks have been busily submitting stars and show bios to be considered for inclusion in the voting shortlist for each of the Logie categories.
While no date for the awards has been confirmed, and it is still to be determined whether there will be a gala celebrity-studded event for the announcement of the winners, what is clear is that unlike last year the gongs will be handed out and the stars of the small screen will be celebrated.
The Logies moved from Melbourne to the Gold Coast in 2018 after the Queensland government locked in a fouryear deal with TV Week and then-owner Bauer Media to host the showbusiness event.
The deal was to cover the Logies from 2018 to 2021.
Last year's event was to have been held at The Star on the Gold Coast on June 28, 2020.
In announcing the cancellation of the Logies, Bauer Media (now ARE Media) group publisher FIONA CONNOLLY promised "to stage an even bigger event on the Gold Coast in 2021".
"The 2021 Logies will be an epic event that will take into consideration the 12 months of television just past, as well as all programs that will air for the remainder of this year," she said last April. Logie HQ confirmed on Friday that the network submissions had taken place but said it was too early to talk about a date for the awards. While it is a bit of a sport to take pot shots at the Logies, make no mistake, networks love winning them and so does talent. They were missed last year.
