Shortland Street's been nominated in TV Guide's Best On The Box awards

The nominees in the country’s biggest people’s choice television awards run by TV Guide have been announced today and this year’s competition is hot!

Campaigning began early to find the Sexiest, Funniest and Best Actors on the box in 2012 with the public being asked who they would like to see in the final nominees list.

Amanda Billing (Sarah) will be battling it out with Kerry-Lee Dewing (Kylie) among others for Sexiest Woman on TV, and Ben Mitchell (TK) is in the running for Sexiest Man.

Amanda is also up against Shavaughn Ruakere (Roimata) for Best Actress, and Michael Galvin (Chris) is up for Best Actor.

Beulah Koale (Jared) and Sam Bunkall (Boyd) made it into the nominees for Rising Star, which is exciting for them as this is the first Best on the Box Awards they have been on Shorty for.

Thanks to the huge amount of likes and the interesting comments and discussions that go on, the Shortland Street Facebook page is in the running for Best Fan Site.

And last but not least, Shortland Street has been nominated for Best Drama Series.

“It was great to invite New Zealand to tell us who they would like to see on the list of nominees this year.  After all, it is their awards,” says Julie Eley editor of TV Guide.

Thank you all for your nominations, but don’t stop your hard work yet!

Go and vote so you have a say towards the final results, not to mention every voter goes in the draw to win some awesome prizes…
