PEDESTRIAN.TV has partnered with Swarovski to bring you the inaugural PEZZYS – an awards night dedicated to celebrating the internet's finest moments in 2017.

You know what they say: there’s something in the water Down Under. Sure, it’s usually in the context of describing our fine genetic makeups (we are pretty hot), but it’s applicable in other, more important, areas too – especially our pool of creative talent. Australia had a stellar year on the entertainment front, from excellent productions to phenom roles, so we thought best to celebrate that, and get your worthy votes on what crowned it all.

If you haven’t already heard (oh, the shame), PEDESTRIAN.TV, together with our pals Swarovski, have decided to recognise the best moments in Australian pop culture – including those in television, streaming and film, by throwing The Inaugural ‘PEZZYS’.

Vote For The Aussie Moments From Film & TV Worth Celebrating
They’re basically like the Oscars, Logies, Grammys, AACTAs etc etc all tied into one – where we’ll be giving the much-deserved love to things that went on throughout 2017. There are eight categories (each with five nominees for a PEZZY) that’ll share the spotlight during the evening which, when viewed collectively, form quite the comprehensive cross-section of the happenings in Australian pop culture not too long ago. It’s on Feb 28th, so we need your help to make sure the right person takes home the gong.

So without further ado, here’s who we’re nominating for the “Don’t Believe Me, Just Watch” category, otherwise known as the moment makers in TV, film and streaming.

SORRY, BUT SOPHIE MONK WAS THE GREATEST BACHELORETTE OF ALL TIME

Vote For The Aussie Moments From Film & TV Worth Celebrating

The Bachie franchise did not know what hit it in 2017. By calling upon Sophie Monk as their first-ever celebrity lead, and one of Australia’s funniest and down-to-earth personalities at that, Channel 10 did the whole country (and their ratings) a service. Whether she was putting a-holes in their place or breaking the hearts of budding magicians and ah, delicate vineyard owners, it was truly entertaining from beginning to end.

SAMARA WEAVING KICKED OFF US DOMINATION WITH ‘THREE BILLBOARDS’ & ‘SMILF’

Vote For The Aussie Moments From Film & TV Worth Celebrating
From scoring roles as a series regular on Showtime‘s SMILF, major roles in films Mayhem and The Babysitter, the love interest in in Charlie Puth‘s ‘Attention‘ music video and – the big one – a ‘uge role in oscar-winning Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, 2017 was *the* year for Samara Weaving. Oh, to think she was once schoolgirl Indi Walker on Home & Away

AUSSIE LEGENDS LIANE MORIARTY & NICOLE KIDMAN BROUGHT US OUR NEW #1 SHOW ‘BIG LITTLE LIES’

Vote For The Aussie Moments From Film & TV Worth CelebratingBig Little Lies was absolutely brilliant. Centring around strong female leads and bringing to light very real issues of domestic violence and sexual assault, no one walked away from watching the screen-adaption of the wildly popular book series without a serious eye opening. Serious credit is due to Liane Moriarty, the author to thank for its existence, and Nicole Kidman for her outstanding Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG Award-winning performance. Homegirl might not know how to clap, but my god does she know how to act out the toughest of situations. (Side note: bring on Season Two.)

MATT OKINE WROTE / STARRED IN / BROUGHT US LEGIT LOLS WITH ‘THE OTHER GUY’

Vote For The Aussie Moments From Film & TV Worth Celebrating

Stan original miniseries The Other Guy, written + produced by former radio personality and current comedian Matt Okine, was bloody great. It’s a strong reminder that getting cheated on is god-awful, and that knife will twist itself through friendships, family, work and look, whatever else the pain can get its claws into. While wildly emotional in parts, it managed to be a right laugh thanks to clever casting, like the inclusion of Harriet Dyer and Okine himself, plus modern and relevant storylines, like balding, one night stands and peen aesthetics.

THE ‘KATERING’ GALS DROPPED THE V. FUNNY FULL-LENGTH SHOW ‘GET KRACK!N’

Vote For The Aussie Moments From Film & TV Worth CelebratingKate McCartney and Kate McLennan truly blessed our tellies in 2017 with the introduction of ABC‘s Get Krack!n’, spawned from their wildly popular comedy The Katering Show‘. The breakfast TV has offered us a cry for help, muffled by the saccharine violence of a morning show jingle – and Anne Edmonds’ turn as haunted home shopping host Helen Bidou will turn even the most comfort-minded audience off jeggings forever.

 OH THE COMPETITION. Vote for your fave below.
