No Activity’s Logie nomination marks a first for Australian streaming

Thanks to its hit stakeout comedy No Activity, Stan has become the first subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service to receive a Logie nomination.

4 April 2016: Yesterday the nominees for Australia's holy grail of entertainment awards, TV Week's Logies, were announced. For the most part, it's pretty standard fare for the Logies (to no one's surprise, Scott Cam and Grant Denyer are up for most popular personality), but one TV series that stands out is Stan's No Activity, which received three nominations yesterday.

This marks the first time an Australian streaming original has been nominated for a Logie; impressive considering No Activity is Stan's first foray into original programming (the second being the Wolf Creek TV series out next month).

No Activity is up for the outstanding comedy program award, and two most outstanding supporting actor awards; Dan Wyllie for his performance as the patient criminal Jimmy and Tim Minchin as Jacob, an over-enthusiastic security guard.

Here's what they're up against.

Most outstanding comedy program

  • No Activity
  • Open Slather
  • Please Like Me
  • Shaun Micallef's Mad As Hell
  • Utopia

Most outstanding supporting actor

  • Dan Wyllie - Jimmy (No Activity)
  • David Berry - James Bligh (A Place to Call Home)
  • Ryan Corr - Corporal MacDonald (Banished)
  • Tim Minchin - Jacob (No Activity)
  • Tim Minchin - Smasher Sullivan (The Secret River)
