Last year John Wood had Australia cheering when he finally took out the TV WEEK Gold Logie, in his 10th consecutive year of being nominated. So who will the nation get behind in 2007? Three-time winner Rove McManus – who, tragically, won’t have his wife Belinda Emmett by his side this year? Or Kate Ritchie, who left Home And Away viewers distraught over the summer, thinking her character had been killed off? Or has cheeky Nine Network personality Jules Lund managed to skate his way into the public’s hearts?

Voting for the 11 Most Popular categories in the 2007 TV WEEK Logie Awards has begun and runs for the next four weeks. People can vote for their favourite show or star, via either a coupon in TV WEEK or online at www.ninemsn.com.au/tvweek.

The final nominees in each of the categories – as well as those in the 11 industry-voted Most Outstanding categories – will be announced on Monday, April 2. It’s then that the Race For Gold will begin for a second year. Once again, there will be eight contenders for the TV WEEK Gold Logie. The public will be able to vote for their choice of the eight nominees via SMS or a 1900 number right up until Logies night.

Last year it was an extremely close race, and John Wood’s name was only engraved on the trophy a matter of hours before it was presented to him.

The 2007 TV WEEK Logie Awards will be held on Sunday, May 6, at the Crown Entertainment Complex in Melbourne and televised on the Nine Network.
