The Project presenter Waleed Aly could become the first back-to-back Gold Logie winner in almost 10 years.
Not since Home and Away star Kate Richie took home the top prize in 2007 and 2008 has someone won consecutive trophies.
Aly was announced by TV Week on Sunday as one of six nominees alongside The Project colleague Peter Helliar, Family Feud host Grant Denyer and actors Rodger Corser and Samuel Johnson. Love Child and Wrong Girl actress Jessica Marais is the sole woman in contention for the Australian television accolade.
