Your votes are in, and we’re starting to tally the results of the 2011 Sugar Awards! First up for today we’re announcing the winner of best Australian TV show . . . and our readers have chosen ABC1’s The Slap! This eight-part series boasted a fantastic cast, including Jonathan LaPaglia, Alex Dimitriades, Melissa George and Sophie Lowe, who brought to life the troubled and controversial characters from Christos Tsiolkas’ award-winning novel of the same name. The performances were a result of brilliant writing and direction about what happens to a group of family and friends when an adult slaps another person’s child at a barbecue. The Slap beat out other favourites Underbelly: Razor, Crownies and Packed to the Rafters.
