Last night’s TV Blackbox Awards saw several of Australia’s favourite television stars and shows scoop up wins that were otherwise left in a void with the absence of the TV Week Logies for both 2020 and 2021.

Stepping in instead of the Logies this year was the TV Blackbox team, with you, our readers, selecting your first round of nominations, then choosing your top five (or six) finalists, and then ultimately deciding on who wins the entire award in each category.

From Reality TV, to Australian Drama, to Actor, to Presenter, to Duo and to the Lifetime Achievement award, you voted for every single winner.
