The Logies will now have FOUR awards given out to New Talent.....

With no less than 4 categories now, the Logie Awards seems to be a bit confused about its own awards for new talent.

It recently announced the Graham Kennedy Award for Most Outstanding Newcomer has been renamed The Graham Kennedy Breakthrough Star Of Tomorrow whilst adding Most Outstanding Newcomer Actor and Actress as 2 further categories. The public voted Best New Talent category also remains.

All but the latter will be announced ahead of the event at the nominations event on April 3rd (previously announced as March 20).

The Graham Kennedy Award for Most Outstanding Newcomer will now be awarded to an actor or actress aged 18 years or younger who had their first major role on any Australian production in 2015.

That is at odds with a statement today that “previous recipients of the award include Firass Dirani, Matt Preston, Jessica Marais, Emma Lung and Chris Lilley. In 2015, Miranda Tapsell won for her leading role in Love Child (Nine Network).”

These performers won the Graham Kennedy Award for Most Outstanding Newcomer, not a “star of tomorrow” -and were not awarded when they were under the age of 18 (they wish!).

It also means any new presenters or non-acting talent are now only eligible for the public-voted Best New Talent -all three of the jury-voted categories are reserved for actors and actresses only (it previously awarded one to Matt Preston).

Meanwhile Ashleigh Brewer and Damon Herriman, have been named as industry judges of the Graham Kennedy Breakthrough Star Of Tomorrow Award. Both have been selected following recent US successes including The Bold and the Beautiful and Flesh & Bone.

“I am so excited and really honoured to be a judge for the TV Week Logies Graham Kennedy Breakthrough Star Of Tomorrow Award,” said Brewer. “It’s so nice to see the high calibre of acting talent continuing to come out of Australia. I wish we could have awarded everyone!”

I don't know why we need four awards for the New Talent. What was wrong with having two like last year - one public voted award, and one judge by the jury (the "outstanding awards").

The three new awards are: Outstanding Newcomer - Actor; Outstanding Newcomer - Actress; The Graham Kennedy Breakthrough Star of Tomorrow (for those under 18 and are actors/actresses!!!). The only good thing I guess is that they winners of these awards will be announced on April 3, when they reveal the nominations for the Main Ceremony. Keep it away from the main ceremony.

What is everyone's thoughts of the Nomination List? Happy with the Gold? Happy with some nominations? Disappointed with some?

Here are my thoughts of the nominations:
- GOLD LOGIE: A mixture of personalities there. You have a newsreader, a current affairs show, an opinionated co-host of a current affairs show, a game-show host, an actress in a high-rating show and a reality tv show host who drinks beer at a pub with contestants and writes up scores on a chalkboard

To be honest, I am surprised, but happy and glad, to see Lee Lin Chin nominated. Yes, I know her campaigns on The Feed for het to win a Logie worked extremely well, but I think her humour on The Feed, and also her news reading are great.

- BEST ACTOR and ACTRESS: A good list overall.
- BEST PRESENTER: Am glad that Amanda Kellar, Lee Lin Chin and Waleed Ally are there. Am glad that Scott Cam isn't there.
- NEW TALENT: Four of the nominees are good. But Dan Reilly from The Block is there? Really? Why is he there for? Wasn't he on the show as the foreman's assistant, and shown on the show as an extreme minute role? There are others more worthy of a nomination than him!!

- Best Sports Program: No surprises that the AFL & NRL Footy Shows are there. One of them will win. But am hoping that the Wide World OF Sports finally picks up an award. 0% chance though.
- Best Lifestyle Program: Good to finally see Gardening Australia get its first Logies nomination :)

I usually end up watching them but am more interested in the Most Outstanding nominations rather than the popular voted ones namely because the Most Outstanding nominations are peer voted rather than viewer voted.

I agree. I also follow the Outstanding nominations more closely rather than the Popular ones.

I will watch the awards, as I have been doing so every year for a long time. I will watch just out of habit.

Congratulations to all of the winners.

The only issue that I had with the program and this is reflected in the Twitter feed and Facebook feed was the induction of Noni Hazelhurst to the Hall of Fame. Quite a number of people had assumed that she had in fact died as this is almost how the pre-speeches sounded. Nearly all of them spoke of her in the past tense.

Congrats to all the winners.

Well done to Noni Hazlehurst for being inducted into the Hall of Fame. It has been long overdue. I agree that it did feel like she had died in the pre-speeches/ packages. Could have been handled better.

For the Gold Logie, Lee Lin Chin was my preference to win it. But Waleed Aly was my second favourite, so I am gla he won. He has had a big year in television, so well done to him.

I am happy for many of the award winners for last night bar two. I didn't expect The Block to win Best Reality Program. I thought that the show is on its last legs. And I have no idea how or why The NRL Footy Show won Best Sports Program. The show is an utter mess. And I am an NRL fan, but the show, well, yikes. Its not that good.

I was happy with Peter Helliar and Kitty Flannigan presenting an award together. They were pretty funny. Dave Hughes was good, but not as good as last year.
