Who will take home the GOLD?
This year’s TV WEEK Logies could be anybody’s with a hugely talented line-up vying for the main prize. Can 2014’s Gold Logie winner SCOTT CAM do it again and win the Most Popular Personality On TV two years in a row? Also battling it out for TV’s most coveted award are: 2013’s golden girl ASHER KEDDIE, multiple Gold Logie nominees and fan favourites STEVE PEACOCKE, CARRIE BICKMORE and ANDY LEE, as well as 2012’s Gold Logie winner HAMISH BLAKE.

TV WEEK hosted a star-studded event at 28 Sky Bar, Crown Metropol, Melbourne, as MCs AMANDA KELLER and SHAYNNA BLAZE revealed all the nominees for the 2015 TV WEEK Logie Awards.

The other big announcement…
Joining four-time Grammy winner SAM SMITH on the night, will be two-time Grammy nominee, singer/songwriter/producer MEGHAN TRAINOR.
MEGHAN burst onto the global music scene in 2014 with her smash debut single “All About That Bass”, which was No.1 on the ARIA charts for four weeks and went six-times Platinum.
“All About That Bass” went to No.1 on the iTunes singles chart in 79 international markets, including Australia, and No.1 on the Global Spotify and Shazam Charts, making MEGHAN a global pop-phenomenon.
MEGHAN’S second single “Lips Are Movin”, hit the Top 5 on the ARIA Singles chart and has achieved double Platinum sales. Her current single “Dear Future Husband” has already achieved Platinum status.
MEGHAN will perform two shows in Australia. She’ll take to the stage in Sydney on Thursday, April 27 at Big Top Luna Park and in Melbourne on Thursday, April 30 at The Forum. For more details, go to
In terms of the actual nominees themselves, there are definitely some pleasant surprises. A swag of new shows and faces have scored nominations this year, with some of our most-loved shows and personalities vying to add to the trophy cabinet.

Most Popular Presenter is set to be a hotly contested category this year as TV veterans AMANDA KELLER, ANDY LEE, CARRIE BICKMORE, GRANT DENYER and KARL STEFANOVIC fight it out for the coveted Silver Logie.

TV WEEK is also excited to continue their support for rising stars. For a second year in a row the Graham Kennedy Award For Most Outstanding Newcomer will be a highly-sought after prize.
In addition to a prestigious TV WEEK Silver Logie Award, the lucky recipient will win a trip to Hollywood through Australians In Film, the LA-based industry organisation. The prize will include a round-trip ticket to Los Angeles, flying Virgin Australia, a one-year scholarship at Stella Adler Acting School in LA, and mentoring with prominent industry contacts.
