The 12th Annual ASTRA Award Winners

Last night saw the stars of subscription TV hit the red carpet for the 12th Annual ASTRA Awards. “Tonight’s ASTRA Awards were the most contested in years and many categories went down to the wire,” ASTRA boss, Andrew Maiden said. “Everyone in the industry has had a brilliant evening recognising the quality, creativity and originality of content on ­subscription television.”

There wasn’t a dry in the house as organisers played a montage of former Australia’s Next Top model judge Charlotte Dawson’s career before she was honoured with a posthumous award for her contribution to subscription TV. “She was warm, funny and a beautiful person. She would break out into these funny jokes all the time,” current host, Jennifer Hawkins said.
