Today Show's Karl Stefanovic wins the Gold Logie 2011.

Karl was tipped by Hollywood star Hugh Jackman and now Karl Stefanovic has a Gold Logie from the TV Week Logie Awards 2011.

After reporting on the Royal wedding between Prince William and Catherine Middleton, 36 year old Stefanovic returned beating off challenges from Packed To The Rafters stars Rebecca Gibney and Jessica Marais, Spicks And Spicks comedian Adam Hills, The Circle presenter Chrissie Swan and Offspring’s leading lady Asher Keddie for the Gold Logie 2011.

The television presenter; finding stardome after appearing on air drunk after the 2009 Logie Awards, also took home the TV Week Silver Logie for 'Most Popular Presenter'. This time he beat Hamish Blake, Shaun Micallef, Swan and Hills again.

For Underbelly: The Golden Mile’s leading man Firass Dirani there was cause for double celebration after claiming the Most Popular New Male Talent and Graham Kennedy Award For Most Outstanding New Talent Award.

The Packed To The Rafters team added another 'Most Popular Drama Series' trophy to the cabinet. Hugh Sheridan, playing widower Ben Rafter, won the Silver Logie for 'Most Popular Actor'.

Adding to their cabinet of trophies, Better Homes And Gardens won Most Poplar Lifestyle Program award, while Most Popular Factual Program went to Bondi Rescue.

Beating out The Farmer Wants A Wife, The Biggest Loser Australia, The X Factor and Dancing With The Stars, cooking show powerhouse MasterChef Australia won its second consecutive Most Popular Reality Program prize.
