Warwick Daily News - - Weekend - IN­SIDER WORDS: SEANNA CRONIN

It’s time to have your say be­fore vot­ing closes to­mor­row for this year’s Lo­gie Awards.

The 60th an­nual awards move to the Gold Coast and the new date of July 1. Here are my votes for the most pop­u­lar cat­e­gories:

Most Pop­u­lar Ac­tor: Ewen Leslie

Be­tween Top of the Lake and Safe Har­bour, Leslie is pro­duc­ing some mem­o­rable dra­matic per­for­mances.

Most Pop­u­lar Ac­tress: An­drea Deme­tri­ades

I doubt she’ll win, but Deme­tri­ades de­serves props for the sheer vol­ume of her work across Janet King, Pulse, Seven Types of Am­bi­gu­ity and Squin­ters.

Most Pop­u­lar Pre­sen­ter: An­drew Win­ter

How would Fox­tel’s Lifestyle Chan­nel get by with­out this cheeky English­man? Win­ter (pic­tured) is key to the suc­cess of both Sell­ing Houses and Love It or List It.

Gold Lo­gie: Lisa Wilkin­son

She nav­i­gated her shock move from Nine to Ten with class and re­straint amid the me­dia storm. It’s nice to see her flex her jour­nal­is­tic might on The Project.

Gra­ham Kennedy Award for Most Pop­u­lar New Tal­ent: Alice En­glert

En­glert, the daugh­ter of direc­tor Jane Cam­pion, nearly stole the spot­light from Ni­cole Kid­man in Top of The Lake.

Most Pop­u­lar Drama Pro­gram: Went­worth

Fox­tel’s prison drama con­tin­ues to sur­prise. Sea­son five was a cracker thanks to Pamela Rabe.

Most Pop­u­lar En­ter­tain­ment Pro­gram: Gog­gle­box Aus­tralia

This show con­tin­ues to keep its fin­ger on the pulse of the na­tion.

Most Pop­u­lar Com­edy Pro­gram: True Story with Hamish and Andy

This show was a sur­prise hit, and one that only this lar­rikin duo could have pulled off.

Most Pop­u­lar Re­al­ity Pro­gram: The Bach­e­lorette Aus­tralia

I’ve got to give So­phie Monk this one; she made the other Bach­e­lorettes seem bor­ing.

Most Pop­u­lar Lifestyle Pro­gram: Love It or List It Aus­tralia

Neale Whi­taker and An­drew Win­ter are a de­light­ful odd cou­ple, with Block judge Neale pulling off some stun­ning ren­o­va­tions.
