The Gold Logie Award

The Gold Logie Award for Most Popular Personality on Australian Television commonly referred to simply as the Gold Logie has been awarded annually since its inception in 1960 at the TV Week Logie Awards ceremony. Even though it is determined by popular vote, it is considered by some the most prestigious award in the Australian television industry.

This article does not include items relating to:

  • special Gold Logies or
  • the "TV Week Awards" Star of the Year award at the inaugural presentation in 1959. This was won by Graham Kennedy, who coined the name Logie Award the following year, after the Scotsman John Logie Baird who developed television as a practical medium, and it is sometimes counted as a Gold Logie equivalent.
  • Gold Logies awarded to inductees into the TV Week Logies' Hall of Fame (since 1984)

Although there have been 56 awards nights, a total of 63 Gold Logies have been won as two Gold Logies, for male and female, were awarded in 1962, 1967, 1970, 1971, 1974, 1975, 1976 and 1977, and the Gold Logie was not awarded in 1959.

Don Lane stated in his TV Week Logie Hall of Fame speech that every Gold Logie winner get invited to the Logies every year.

1950s[edit]

1st Annual TV Week Logie Awards, 1959

The Logies as such did not commence until 1960, and thus no Gold Logie was given at the inaugural awards presentation in 1959. However Graham Kennedy won the "TV Week Awards' Star Of The Year" in 1959, and this is sometimes considered to be equivalent to a Gold Logie.
