  • GOLDENE HENNE - germany's biggest audience award

    GOLDENE HENNE is Germany's biggest audience award and has been presented in the memory of Helga Hahnemann since 1995. Readers of SUPERillu and viewers of MDR Television vote for their favorites in the categories of music, sports, drama, entertainment, rising stars and #Onlinestars. In addition, jury prizes are awarded in the areas of charity, politics and lifetime achievements.

    Stefan Kobus, chief editor of SUPERillu, shares his words about the Gala: "The evening reflects the diverse interests and passions of our readers and viewers. Above all, it is an evening for the audience."

    GOLDENE HENNE 2020 despite Corona. Due to the Corona restrictions, the audience in 2020 was unfortunately not able to be present directly on site, but could watch the live show with all award winners exclusively on TV. 1.5 million viewers nationwide experienced the gala on the Channel of MDR. The response from the audience and the feedback from the artists in the studio in Leipzig confirmed our decision to hold Goldene Henne despite Corona and with the necessary hygiene concepts.

    GOLDENE HENNE 2021 will take place on September 17, 2021 in Leipzig. Current situation (Covid-19): An event concept for 2021 corresponding to the circumstances is being developed and cannot be finally communicated at this time.
