AFTER dominating the past year's ratings, Channel 7 has come out the biggest winner of the 2012 Logie Awards nominations.

The free-to-air broadcaster earned 31 nominations, compared to 25 for Network Ten, 21 for both Channel 9 and the ABC, eight for pay-TV and seven for SBS.

Last year's Gold Logie winner Karl Stefanovic is once again up for the big award, alongside Home and Away star Ester Anderson, Offspring star Asher Keddie and funny men Hamish Blake and Adam Hills.

Keddie and Anderson were both also nominated for the Silver Logie for Most Popular Actress.

Seven's Logies juggernaut Packed to the Rafters missed out on the Gold Logie but did earn five nominations including Most Popular Drama Series.

The latest Underbelly installment (Razor) was the big winner for Channel 9, earning six nominations including Most Popular New Female Talent for stars Anna McGahan and Chelsie Preston Crayford.

The ABC's critically acclaimed mini-series The Slap, adapted from the bestselling novel, also did well with four nominations.

One notable name missing from this year's nominations is Angry Boys creator and star Chris Lilley, who won Logies for his previous two comedy series We Can Be Heroes and Summer Heights High.
