The Ozcars is an annual awards ceremony held every year on Survivor Oz. It combines votes from the shows listeners, the shows guests and people involved with the show in order to decide who wins each award.


The awards started off as a group of polls in 2012 where listeners got to vote on six different categories on various elements of Survivor. In 2013 the show expanded this poll with new categories and renamed it The Ozcars.


The awards have followed various formats over the years.


The awards were held in September 2012 in the lead up to Survivor: Philippines. Six different categories were announced: "Sexiest Male", "Sexiest Female", "Best Season", "Best Player Never To Have Won", "Best Winner and Greatest Player of All Time". People were asked to vote on an online poll for their choices over a two week voting period. These votes were then combined with votes from the Survivor Oz team as well as the answers given by the guests on the show. Negative votes were also taken into account in the Best Winner and Best Season categories. Once the votes had been counted, the results were announced during a special episode of the show, with a full list of the top 25 (or in some cases the maximum amount of possible votable people/seasons) in each category published on the shows website.


The awards were moved forward and started directly after the finale of Survivor: Caramoan). An initial two week voting period was held for the first round, and alongside the six categories from 2012, eight more categories were introduced as well as a 'Lifetime Achievement' award that would be voted for by the Survivor Oz team. The categories for 2013 were: "Best First Boot", "Best Pre-Merge Player", "Best Jury Player", "Best Location", "Sexiest Male", "Sexiest Female", "Biggest Hero", "Biggest Villain", "Best New Player", "Best Survivor Oz Interview", "Best Season", "Best Player Never To Have Won", "Best Winner", and "Greatest Player Of All Time". After the initial two week voting period, the top five of each category were announced as finalists in a special live episode. A further ten day voting period was held in which people voted for the finalists, and a live award ceremony was held in June to officially announce the winners. Guests for the live ceremony included Francesca Hogi, Tracy Hughes-Wolf, Brian Heidik, Kelly Shinn, and Denise Stapley.


The 2014 Ozcars were officially launched on the 22nd of April, with new categories and a new format announced for the third Ozcars awards. For 2014 the awards were split into two categories: 2013/14 & Overall. This was done in order to make the awards more relevant to the previous 12 months (or two season cycle) of the show, as well as keeping the historical awards in tact each year. In 2014 there was a total of 17 awards in both categories, with eight new awards. Several categories from 2013 were retired and did not return for 2014. As in 2013 there were two voting periods. The first voting period was held to determine the final 5 in each category. A further 7 day voting period was then held for people to vote on the finalists. A live award ceremony was held to officially announce the winners with special guests including Brian Heidik, Coach Wade, Tanya Vance, J'Tia Taylor, Katie Gallagher, Peter Harkey, LJ McKanas, and Spencer Bledsoe.


The 2015 Ozcars were officially launched on the 2nd of May, with the awards following the same format as 2014 with both 2014/15 categories and Overall categories. Two new categories were added for the 2015 awards: Best Survivor Media which celebrates podcasts and websites which cover Survivor as well as Best Third Boot in the overall category. This category continues on from Best First Boot in 2013 and Best Second Boot in 2014. As in 2014 there were two voting periods. First round voting opened on the 21st of May and ran for 10 days, with the top 5 finalists in each category announced live on the 1st of June. A further 6 day voting period was held to determine the winners. A live award ceremony was held to officially announce the winners with special guests including Carolyn Rivera and Brian Heidik.
