Logies 2017: All The Award Winners

Updating live as the night goes on!

It's TV's night of nights where we celebrate the who's who and who's that of Aussie TV, the 59th annual TV WEEK Logie Awards.

While there are many, many deserving nominees this year all eyes are on the potential winners of this year's Gold Logie, celebrating the best personality on TV. In this year's gang of nominees are Grant Denyer for his work on "Family Feud" and "The Great Australian Spelling Bee", Jessica Marais for her roles in "The Wrong Girl" and "Love Child" and Rodger Corser, the handsome physician on the show so nice they named it twice: "Doctor Doctor".

Samuel Johnson is also nominated for his starring role in Channel Seven's biographic miniseries about the life of Molly Meldrum, but the real battle is across the desk of "The Project". Last year's winner, Waleed Aly, is up for the award again this year, but hoping to knock him off his winning streak is Aly's co-host Peter Helliar.

Here are all the nominees for the 59th annual TV Week Logie Awards, winners will be updated in bold as the night progresses!
