The first winners from the Best on the Box awards announced

BestontheBoxlogoTV Guide has announced a few of the winners from their viewer-voted Best on the Box Awards.

Shortland Street claimed four awards, with 7 Days, The Crowd Goes Wild, 3 News and Campbell Live taking home two apiece.

Shane Cortese (Nothing Trivial, The Almighty Johnsons) and Amanda Billing (Shortland Street) were deemed to be the best actor and actress the country has to offer.

Shortland Street’s Ben Mitchell is apparently the ‘sexiest male’ while Go Girl actress Anna Hutchison is regarded as the ‘sexiest female’.

“Our readers are very passionate about TV and this year’s voting results show even more New Zealanders are really involved with the awards, which is great for the local industry,”says TV Guide editor, Julie Eley.

“Every year we poll voters on their favourite and least favourite shows on TV which can bequite revealing. This year Shortland Street came out on top in both so I guess you could say we love to hate it!.”

The full list of winners will be announced tomorrow in the latest edition of the magazine.
