‘Bloom’ wins TV Week Logie Award for Most Outstanding Mini Series, with Jacki Weaver winning for Most Outstanding Supporting Actress
June 30, 2019: Stan – Australia’s unrivalled home of original productions – has picked up two wins at the 2019 TV Week Logie Awards, with two-time Academy Award nominee Jacki Weaver honoured for her stellar performance in the celebrated Stan original series ‘Bloom’, which also won for Most Outstanding Mini Series.
Tonight’s TV Week Logie Award honours for ‘Bloom’ add to the phenomenal success the show has already enjoyed, with the series breaking viewing records when it premiered on New Year’s Day earlier this year.
Jacki Weaver beat out an impressive line-up of Australian talent to win the Award for Most Outstanding Supporting Actress for her haunting role as Gwendolyn Reed in the six-part drama series created by Glen Dolman (High Life).
Directed by the acclaimed John Curran (Tracks, Chappaquiddick, Praise) and Mat King (Wentworth Prison), ‘Bloom’ was written by Dolan in collaboration with Award winner Matt Cameron (Sunshine) and Alison Nisselle (Parer’s War). Shot by AACTA Award-winning cinematographer Geoff Hall (Stan’s Wolf Creek) and produced by Australian screen legend Sue Seeary (The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert), the series was executive produced by David Maher and David Taylor for Playmaker in association with Sony Pictures Television.
AACTA Award nominee Ryan Corr and Stan CEO Mike Sneesby announced during the acceptance speech for the Most Outstanding Mini Series Award that ‘Bloom’ would be commissioned for a second season.
“Stan is proud to be part of our local production industry and grateful for the opportunity to work on productions like ‘Bloom’ with the remarkable creatives who bring these shows to life,” said Stan CEO Mike Sneesby. “Our wholehearted congratulations go out to Jacki for her well deserved recognition at this year’s TV Week Logie Awards.”
