Popular TV series Offspring has dominated the Logie nominations, featuring in the most outstanding drama and most outstanding actress categories.

Asher Keddie and Kat Stewart, who play sisters Nina and Billie Proudman in Network Ten’s multi-award winning show, are both in the running for most outstanding actress.

They’ll be up against Mandy McElhinney who made her mark as magazine editor Nene King in Paper Giants.

Meanwhile Offspring will battle it out against Seven’s A Place to Call Home, Foxtel’s prison drama Wentworth and the ABC’s Redfern Now and The Time of Our Lives for best drama.

Chris Lilley has won a nomination for most outstanding actor for his character as the obnoxious private school girl Ja’mie, along with Craig McLachlan, David Wenham, Kirk Page and Lachy Hulme, who played the late Frank Packer in Power Games: The Packer-Murdoch Story.

The Logies Awards will be held in Melbourne on April 27 and broadcast on the Nine Network.
