It feels like it was Logies season just yesterday. All the stunning dresses, suits, and Lee Lin Chin’s fashion. Noni Hazelhurst’s emotional speech on race, refugees, and the impact on children’s lives.And, who the hell could forget when Waleed Aly walked onto stage and blew everyone away with his speech accepting the Gold Logie. Big. Year.
If you can’t get enough of it, then Logies season has begun once again with voting opening today.
Check out the most glamourous look from the 2016 Logies. Post continues after gallery….
There are two major changes to the system this year, with the voting closing much earlier than usual – it will be closing on Decemeber 18.
Also, Most Oustanding Factual Program or Documentary has been added to the list, making a record number of 27 categories.
People are yet to find out who has been nominated for the top Gold Logie, but the categories for Best Drama and Best Reality Shows has announced their categories.
Vying for Best Reality show includes Australia’s Next Top Model, Australian Survivor, I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and the show that never leaves our screens, The Block.
As for the Best Drama, ABC’s addicting Barracuda is competing against other shows, such as Cleverman, Here Come the Habibs, Janet King, Home and Away, Love Child, The Secret Daughter, The Wrong Girl, Neighbours, and Offspring.

Meanwhile, stars have already announced who they are packing to be picked for the top prize.
Talking to the Herald Sun, co-host of The Project and Gold Logie winner, Carrie Bickmore is hopeful her colleague, Peter Helliar will be nominated.
“It’s hard to believe Pete has never been nominated for the Gold Logie. I’ve worked alongside Pete for over 10 years and he is an absolute legend. He is funny, generous, smart and has incredible timing. He would make a great Gold Logie winner,” she said.
“I feel sorry for whoever has to follow Waleed’s speech from last year but you know what, if anyone could do it Pete’s your guy. It would be funny and very memorable I am sure.”
Radio host, Rove McManus, has also backed Helliar but he would be up against some fierce competition.
Many are thinking Today co-host Lisa Wilkinson will be nominated, along with Jessica Marais, and Marta Dusseldorp.
