2012 Logie Awards: winners

Hugh Sheridan, Asher Keddie, Adam Hills, Bondi Rescue, The Block are amongst winners at the 54th TV Week Logie Awards.

The stars have gathered at Crown Palladium for the 54th TV Week Logie Awards.

One Direction opened the Red Carpet with an ear-piercing performance as security battled to keep the hordes contained. This year media and stars struggled to be heard in pre-show interviews as fans of the UK boyband squealed their enthusiasm. Television’s “night of nights” threatened to be upstaged by pop music.

But the ceremony eventually got underway.

Flo Rida opened with Get a Good Feeling, the song that Young Talent Time used for all its promos. Nice plug. The room certainly was buoyant with Flo Rida even coaxing Sonia Kruger dancing.

Adam Hills was the first presenter, mimicking Angelina Jolie’s Academy Awards pose. Hills let fly with plenty of gags about One Direction, The Shire, Gina Rinehart, and Brynne Edelsten (why isn’t he hosting the show?).

  1. Is there a need to acknoweledge the today show and karl every five minutes? Its annoying how theres no shots of stars on other networks on the redcarpet, we get it, you think lavina and sonia looked great, and i get you dont want to promote the other channels but seriously we are watching because we are tv fans.

  2. There are many perplexing questions raised by all of this, but what I don’t understand most is, how is the ALF grand final day coverage a sports program? All the other nominees, both footy shows, wwos, and before the game are actual 30+ week shows. The AFL grand final was not even in the running for best sports coverage. So David or anyone, can you explain how the grand final coverage of the AFL is nominated, and wins best Sports Program???

  3. Good now we can talk about. I said it, Hamish would win, and it’s all because Nine bought it. just like they bought last years. That’s how desperate they’ve become.
    Hamish was on a show that lasted what 6 weeks, and had ratings that dropped week after week and was one of the years biggest flops. Just remarkable he’d win. Time the Logies were scrapped.

  4. Ouch Rebecca Gibney’s comment felt personal….”for a show in decline we’re doing okay.”

    I used to love Rafters and would watch every week, but the last season the quality of the show dropped massively, getting that bad that I was losing interest but still watched. Was only when Seven yanked it mid season that made up my mind to stop watching. Good on them for still rating well, but the show ain’t what it used to be.

    Most of the Outstanding categories have been spot on (minus the sport one). That’s exactly why the Logies need to scrap this rubbish popular voting, and be a serious well respected industry award. Can you imagine if the Oscars or Grammys were public voted…Twilight wins Best Picture, Justin Bieber wins song of the year…

  5. No spolier contained in this post
    You can still find things that aren’t officially published with a google search
    Try. 2012 gold logie winner and while the page may not exist the headline does….

  6. Did Denise Scott have a sly dig about the leak, by pretending she was about to read the winner before the nominees? “Imagine if I’d blown it”. Quite a few knowing laughs in the audience.

  7. The Most Outstanding Children’s Program award is a absolute joke, they really should scrap it. There were much better choices than My Place, that award never goes to any decent series.

    I would have chosen the Legend of Enyo.

    I still remember when Argo’s Carton Connection would always win the award, when they were not even trying in the later years. Saturday Disney provided much better hosts segments, and there were many other good choices.

  8. Hamish Blake wins the gold logie. What a joke ! The logies has turned into a charity event for those to win who do not have people actually watching their show. It should be more strict on who gets nominated and it should be based on longevity and ratings. A few years ago the chaser boys were going to rig the gold logie for Anton Enus from SBS World News to win but the authorities steped in and took his name off the nomination list
