Best on the Box winners announced

OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNE took out five awards in the TV Guide Best on the Box People’s Choice Awards:

Robyn Malcolm, who plays tough-as-nails matriarch Cheryl West in has been voted Sexiest Woman for the third year running and Best Actress on television for the sixth year in a row.

Malcolm’s co-star in the hit TV series, Antony Starr, holds onto his Sexiest Man title for the second year and the Best Actor gong for the third time.

Considered a sex symbol on-screen, Antony says off-screen it’s a different story. “If I was treated like that I would probably go and hide in a cave somewhere because I’d be too embarrassed. I tend to slip under the radar in that department which is fine by me,” he says.

In the Sexiest Woman category, Robyn beat runner-up and Breakfast presenter Pippa Wetzell by a mere 73 votes and while she’s flattered at the result says she is a “pretty normal sort of a bird”.

“Perhaps in other parts of the world, the Angelina Jolies get elevated to those positions. But I like that in New Zealand we seem to like our girls normal.”

OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNE also topped the Best Drama category for the fifth year running.
