AACTA has announced its nominees for the Audience Choice Awards 2024, following online voting and a social media callout.
The list this year has thrown up some unexpected nominations including Netflix, Disney, and Prime Video shows as the ‘Favourite TV Series.’
They include Ginny & Georgia, My Life with the Walter Boys, Outer Banks, The Kardashians, The Summer I Turned Pretty and Young Sheldon.
The last time this category was held the category was: Bluey, Gogglebox, Have you Been Paying Attention? Heartbreak High, Home and Away and Married at First Sight.
Why the sudden change?
TV Tonight understands voters were not required to verify being an Australian resident such as via a phone number.
Probably some room for improvement if these Audience categories plan to continue…
