The Block‘s Scott Cam has won the Gold Logie for 2014.

“This is really unbelievable,” he said.

The carpenter turned television presenter thanked former producers who assisted him early in his career, cameramen, network, his co-host, Block judges and family.

“I’m not here without a great show like The Block.

“I’m so lucky that they asked me to look after their show.

“I need to thank the whole Block family.

“Everybody works as a family and we all work together really well.

He also thanked co-host Shelley Craft.

“I really love being part of the Channel Nine family,” he said.

“They’ve been extremely loyal to me.”

TV WEEK GOLD LOGIE – MOST POPULAR PERSONALITY ON TV

Carrie Bickmore (The Project, Network Ten)
Essie Davis (Phryne Fisher, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, ABC1)
Scott Cam (The Block, Nine Network)

Later Cam said, “I watched the Logies as a kid, and I loved them. When I was younger, to watch my heroes winning [Gold] like Bert Newton, Don Lane, I can’t fathom [that I have won one next to them]. I am a carpenter; I am not up there with them. I was lucky enough to get a nomination in that circle, which is pretty fun. It’s ridiculous, really.”

  1. This is a very sad state that the winner of a gold logie is the host of a reality show. This tears down the need to have a quality television industry that contains aspects which include drama, sport, television and news. To award a reality hosts just gives the networks extra leverage to host more bad quality reality programs – take the award off him. No reality host should ever receive a logie.

  2. Truly appalling television last night.

    Dave Hughes is normally very funny but he just appeared sloshed to the gills last night.

    Kylie miming an awful song while some people were on stage attempting to dance.

    And thats when I gave up and went to bed.

    Thank god I didn’t stay up to see Scott Cam win Gold.

    If I did I would have smashed my TV set and sent Nine the bill.

    If this is what Australian television is all about – give me repeats of Midsomer Murders please.

  3. Was that speech the longest in Logies’ history? Maybe he should have had just one beer it would have been more entertaining. Yikes! I was waiting for him to thank the housekeeper and the postman….
    I don’t know if the Gold has ever meant much when you look at some of the winners in the past. Whether they bought umpteenth copies of tv week in the old days or obsessively vote now via social media, it is a snapshot of a moment in time. Just one moment please.

  4. Lost all credibility, time to put it all to bed and rest it, sad sad show these days, just an excuse for the industry to get on the gas and for fashion designers to showcase their(some truly awful)designs and on that ..ladies,wear frocks that actually suit your body shape…

    I’m going to hate myself for saying this, but if there had only been a third block in 2013, there may have been just too much of a sure thing.

    But every cloud has a silver lining, and surely even Network Nine will twig that sometimes there can be just a little to much of a good thing, which augers well for anybody ‘ not on Nine’ next year, possibly even Sir Andrew Bolt???

  6. So Scott Cam is the next Gold puppet for channel 9. Its pathetic really. The Gold Logie used to mean something but since Karl, Hamish and now Scott have won it takes the gloss off for me. No credibility in the Gold Logie anymore. Next year will probably be Richard Wilkins or something. At least his win is tolerable though because how in the world did Housos win?

  7. next years gold logie winner: Richard Wilkins

    Congrats Scott Cam for winning the Gold. Well said speech. Fifteen years in the industry is good. Would have preferred others to win (who have more charisma on air), but congrats again

  8. nice speech went on for a bit but thats ok. I figured he won when the odds were him at $1,25 favourite and Asher next at 4.50. Someone knew and had a big plunge.

    Interesting to see whose up next year
