The annual TV Week Logie Awards will be held on the 27th of April, 2014. The Gold Logie Award for Most Popular Personality on Australian Television, more commonly known as the “Gold Logie” is awarded to the most popular personality on Australian television.

The nominees for the Gold Logie award this year are:

  • Carrie Bickmore, one of the presenters on The Project and the host of So You Think You Can Dance Australia.
  • Scott Cam, most famous for his ongoing work on the reality TV shows, Backyard Blitz/Domestic Blitz and The Block.
  • Asher Keddie, the 2013 Gold Logie award winner, known for her leading roles in Australian drama shows including Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities, Love My Way, Hawke and Rush.
  • Andy Lee, real name Andrew Thomas Lee is best known for his comedian work with Hamish Blake from the comedy duo Hamish & Andy.
  • Steve Peacocke who stars as Darryl Braxton or just “Brax” on the long running Aussie TV drama show Home & Away.
  • Essie Davis is an actress from Tasmania who has starred in two Matrix films and the 2014 TV Movie A Poet in New York.

I don’t watch a great deal of TV, but I do enjoy a bit of comedy. For that reason alone, I hope Andy Lee wins the 2014 Gold Logie. I have seen Asher Keddie and she is a great actor, but she won last year after being nominated and ultimately not winning in 2012 and 2013. Third time lucky for Asher, can she win 2 years in a row? Not according to the bookmakers who have Carrie Bickmore as the favourite to win from Scott Cam, a long time reality TV personality in Australia who probably deserves some recognition.

I honestly don’t know of any tips to give you when betting on celebrities, television shows and most other novelty betting markets. If you have any tips for how to pick the winner of popularity contests, betting on celebrities or TV shows, please don’t hesitate to leave a commment 🙂
