Best On The Box - Roll Out The Red Carpet


Media Release
6 November 2003


Television darlings Mike Hosking and Kate Hawkesby got all the hype but it was husband and wife newsreaders Simon Dallow and Alison Mau who got all the votes to be crowned the sexiest stars on New Zealand TV in last year's TV Guide Best on the Box People's Choice Awards.

Can Alison and Simon repeat their stunning double act of 2002 when New Zealanders again pick the hottest stars and shows in TV Guide's 2003 Best On The Box People's Choice Awards?

Our top actors, presenters, comedies, dramas and news shows will all be decided in the biggest annual poll on New Zealand television with voting forms in the TV Guide from Friday November 7 and online polling at

Antony Phillips, TV Guide editor, says the winners of the Best On The Box awards will for the first time be announced at a glitzy ceremony in Auckland on December 11.

"The stars really rate these awards because they know if TV Guide readers vote them a winner, they've pleased their toughest critics," says Phillips. "Some of our top shows, such as Best On The Box comedy winner Willy Nilly, have secured their futures by scooping these awards."

Personality categories include the sexiest man and woman, best actor and actress, best presenters for news, weather and sport and rising star.

Television show categories include best kids show, best drama, best comedy, best entertainment, best reality competition, best reality documentary series, best home show, best lifestyle/advice, best documentary series and best news/current affairs.

Voters will get the chance to win a Samsung 42 inch plasma screen television worth nearly $10,000 - just one of the many prizes on offer.
