“Thankyou ladies and gentleman and executives,” he said.

Newton then launched into a traditional routine, including a gag at Christine Nixon’s expense.

    I have to say that it was really annoying to hear Bert Newton discussing marriage with K.D Lang. Where are you Bert? Not funny, pointing to two men on stage! Gay people do not have the same rights, gay women are not into men but women! Think next time. It was not funny, we have to fight for our rights every day.

  2. I don't idolise cheerleaders who win Donald Trump's bikini competition

    Let’s hope the Logies are sponsored by a company other than Myer next year so Jen Hawkins won’t have to attend for no reason for the second time. Myer can’t afford to pay their employees to work in their stores (no, no one can help you at Myer because no one works there anymore) yet they can pay the world’s luckiest bogan to attend an event that she knows nothing about and wear an outfit that doesn’t even adhere to the black tie guidelines. Imagine a spokes-bogan wearing club wear to the Logies.. What a class act. What an advertisement for your company Myer, and you wonder why you’re losing money. Hire a class act (like Miranda Kerr) and you will attract a classier crowd and make more money. Just ask David Jones how it’s done. Get rid of her. Don’t Australians idolise enough accuidentally famous morons already? It’s embarrassing…

    • Was funny seeing Jen Hawkins claim the night as a great one for the television and film industry…..

      That said, she would be on this invite list regardless of sponsorship or not. Logies want A-list and gets A-list.

  3. Well deserved win to Ray after so long in tv.K.D Lang was amazing what a voice,They forgot during the In Memoriam to mention actor Reg Evans who also died during the Victorian Bushfires.

  4. Showing the new issue of the tv week at the end was a throw back to the old days. I remember seeing them do this when I was a kid. My first Logies was the year Don Lane and Jeanie Little won Gold, back in 1977. Happy memories…

  5. Shaun was brilliant! i almost peed myself during his speech. I really wanted him to win the gold. thought Rebecca was gonna win though.
    One question. Was Poh sitting on the floor? Did anyone else notice it? y’know. When Matt was getting up. Poh was behind him. She seemed to be sitting on the floor. David?

  6. Can someone tell me what the deal was with Carrie Bickmore winning most popular new female talent, She was on Rove for at least a couple of years before the 7 pm project, so how is she a “new” talent?

    Matt Preston winning the Graham Kennedy award makes me wonder if it should be restricted to actors and actresses. I’m not saying that I don’t like Matt Preston, but the others seemed more deserving.

  8. Watched about 95% of the broadcast and thought it flowed quite well from segment to music act etc, Bert was on just enough with a few quick jokes ( a bit awkward with KD Lang I thought though) and then got into it, thought showing the TV Week mag at the end was a bit weird.
    Loved KD of course thought Gabrielle Chilmi was fine a bit disappointed unless I missed it that Johnny Galecki from Big Bang Theory was only on for one award I would have thought it would have been for two was he interviewed on the Red Carpet ?unless he is doing some press today.

  9. K D Lang did a great job – as she always does.

    Given that I would assume that no one missed ‘No show’ Susan Boyle at all….

  10. A wonderful celebration of Australian small screen entertainment, although I too wonder why International artists, unless they’re Australian of course, are invited to an Australian entertainment awards show, that the artists have very little insight or knowledge about ??? Bert was his ever brillliant best and how proud us Aussie’s should be of the talent that graces our entertainment industry and without doubt will go on to follow their fellow Australian’s who keep making a huge impression internationally … Actors and muscians alike … I’d particularly like to thank Molly Meldrum and Ray Meagher for being astute enough to make some mention in relation to the unpleasant situtation at the NRL, during their time on stage last night … Hoping it wasn’t all for nought, as the NRL is appearing more hypicritical then ever of late …

  11. @Paul. The Logies have often featured a plug for TV Week. They are, afterall, the ones hosting the award.

    I quite enjoyed last night’s show. Bert kept the show going smoothly and I didn’t see him take his wig off once, so that’s got to be good. And this year not so much of the forced comedy “skits” that we’ve had on the Logies in previous years. And also… John Mayer… could he have been any less interested about being there?

    And I liked Gabriella Cilmi, surprising enough. The tributes to Don Lane and Brian Naylor were outstanding although having some of the old timers (some of who were probably more known from IMT than The Don Lane Show) march onto stage at the end of Don’s tribute was a bit awkward I thought. Peter Mitchell, Mal Walden and Peter Hitchener all spoke brilliantly about Brian Naylor.

  12. look congrats Ray on winning gold, so dont take this personally…i just dont the gold is needed…i never watch Home and away…so only know him from the fact the he has a bart simpson type of catch phrase… of “stone the crows” or whatever it is… it just doesn’t work for me, its just my own observation, but again good luck to him… iam not sure who else was more deserving winner…
