The nominees for the 2024 Logie Awards have been announced, with a plethora of nominations across broadcast TV networks and streaming services such as ABC, Netflix, SBS, Ten, Binge, Stan, Seven, Prime Video, Paramount+ and Disney+.

Dominating the drama series and fictional TV categories is Boy Swallows Universe, with ten nominations total. Netflix’s seven-part series adaptation of the Trent Dalton novel brought the ‘working-class fairy tale’ to life on the silver screen, and our reviewer Anthony Morris praised it for its ‘genre mash up’ and strong aesthetic:

‘The performances are strong across the board (Cameron is especially impressive), and there’s plenty of star power (Simon Baker and Anthony LaPaglia appear in later episodes),’ writes Morris. ‘The production design nails the retro atmosphere, the direction is slick and the memorable soundtrack is money well spent.’

Other multiple-time nominees include the cast and crews of ABC dramas The Newsreader and Total Control, Binge drama Love Me, Prime comedy Deadloch, Stan comedy Population 11, and ABC comedy Utopia.

‘As always, this is an exciting list of nominees for the TV Week Logie Awards with some of Australia’s best talent and shows up for awards,’ said TV Week Editorial Director Amber Giles.

‘With the nominations announced, it’s now over to the public to have their say. The public can vote on more categories than ever before, so if you are passionate about TV and want to see your favourite stars and shows shine, then get voting!’

This year’s awards will see some minor changes to their titles, with three ‘Popular’ categories and the remainder retitled as ‘Best’.
