The annual TV Week Logie Awards sprang absolutely no surprises last night as the winners in the popular voting sections read like a list of odds-on favourites.

Ray Martin took home the gold Logie for the third year in a row, the first person to achieve this feat in the 37 years of competition. He has now struck gold on four occasions, winning first in 1987.

The silver Logies for best actress and actor went to Melissa George and Dieter Brummer, co-stars of the Channel 7 production Home and Away, while the program itself was voted most popular series.

But while the popular voting went its own sweet way, ABC Television came storming in to take a swag of Logies in the outstanding achievement sections, all of which were decided by industry peer group voting.

In a remarkable sweep, silver Logies for the most outstanding actor and actress were won by Chris Haywood, for his work in Janus, and by Monica Maughan for her work in the The Damnation of Harvey McHugh. Janus was judged most outstanding achievement in drama production. The ABC satire of television journalism, Frontline, was named the most outstanding achievement in comedy, a Four Corners report by Chris Masters, Inside a Holocaust, won most outstanding achievement in public affairs award, ABC news coverage of the Rwanda refugee crisis won the most outstanding news achievement for a report by James Schofiel and best documentary was the ABC's Fifty Years of Silence.

The actor Jack Thompson was awarded a gold Logie and was inducted into the TV Week Logie Awards Hall of Fame.
