Public voting for the Most Popular categories were conducted through an online survey from 3 February 2014 to 2 March 2014.[1] Nominations were announced on 31 March 2014.[1] Offspring received the most nominations with eight, followed by Home and Away with six.[3] The Block, Hamish & Andy's Gap Year Asia, Paper Giants: Magazine Wars and Redfern Now each received four nominations.[3]

BackgroundEdit

Changes to categoriesEdit

In January 2014, it was revealed that TV Week had eliminated some categories in a bid to shorten the ceremony.[4] The categories for Most Popular New Male Talent and Most Popular New Female Talent were merged into the Most Popular New Talent category to become gender non-specific.[4][5] The Most Popular Factual Program category was also eliminated[4][5] and the Most Outstanding New Talent category was renamed Most Outstanding Newcomer.[6]

Nominations announcementsEdit

Nominations were announced in two stages on 31 March 2014; the peer-voted Most Outstanding categories were published in the issue of TV Week that hit newsstands in the morning,[6] while the Most Popular categories were announced in the afternoon at the nominations event in Melbourne,[7] which was hosted by Julia Morris and Chris Brown and attended by network stars.[8]
