Don’t expect to see Anastasia, Faye, Symon, Adam, Yvie or Angie accepting a Logie if Gogglebox wins this weekend.
None of the cast will be allowed to attend again this year, despite them being the favourite for the Best Factual category once again.
Last year it was left to producer David McDonald to thank viewers for the nod, and he’s likely to make another speech if they win again this year.
The decision from inside the Foxtel / TEN camp stems from trying to keep the cast away from red carpets and industry events, in order that they remain firmly on one side of the box and not become “stars” themselves. It does make some fuzzy logic despite previous interviews and photo shoots, including for the Foxtel mag.
We won’t even get to see them celebrate this time around, after last year’s win made it into the next episode. We should really have a Gogglebox: Logie special in which they weigh in on the whole ceremony.
Put those acceptance speeches on your social media, guys….?
