The industry-voted categories will be increased with two new awards —  Most Outstanding Supporting Actor and Most Outstanding Supporting Actress.

TV Week has also announced that with the advent of subscription streaming services that program submissions from these sites can now be entered for nomination.

TV Week publisher Jayne Ferguson says the changes are part of the constant evolution of the awards:

“We are excited to announce some new awards to the 58th TV Week Logie Awards, as we continue to evolve the awards, to give fans the chance to vote on the best shows and biggest stars on TV. The introduction of new industry voted awards for acting highlights our commitment to supporting outstanding Australian talent.

  1. Great to see the Most Outstanding Supporting Actor and Actress Awards back at the Logies. They are long overdue.

    I think its good to have the News Panel & Current Affairs Program Award too. It deserves a place at the Logies.

  2. What should NOT be a category is for Reality(?) shows. Reality shows are a cancer that needs immediate excision and should NOT be encouraged with any kind of award.

    1. Netflix original content would have been eligible to be voted/nominated in existing categories. This year has some nominations from the Stan streaming service.
