SYDNEY — Foxtel drama “Love My Way” will be going for three wins in a row after gaining a strong suite of nominations at the annual Logie awards, the local TV kudos.
“Love My Way” has won the drama category for the past two years while stars Dan Wylie and Ben Mendelsohn are up for actor and Claudia Karvan and Asher Keddie for actress.
The break-out Aussie drama will compete with “Answered by Fire” (ABC), AFI award-winning “RAN: Remote Area Nurse” (SBS), “The Silence” (ABC) and feature “The Society Murders” (Network Ten).
Elsewhere the kudos are skewing younger, a point the organizers are stressing to remove its sometimes stuffy image.
The major category — the Gold Logie — is normally dominated by TV stalwarts. This year there are four newcomers: “McLeod’s Daughters’ ” Simmone Jade Mackinnon and Rachael Carpani, plus “Neighbours’ ” thesp Natalie Blair and “All Saints” actor John Howard. They go up against thesp John Wood, presenters Rove McManus and Bert Newton and “Home and Away’s” Kate Ritchie.
Kudocast will air on the Nine Network on May 6.
