Tracy Grimshaw sent an editorial Tom Gleeson’s way last night on A Current Affair after his stinging Gold Logie acceptance speech.
“The newly minted Gold Logie winner advised us all to lighten up last night.
“How light did he want it?” Grimshaw asked.
“Julia Morris was wearing Costa’s beard, Pete Helliar was wearing a Logie. We were celebrating achievement in an industry whose main purpose is to entertain, and also happens to employ thousands of Australians. An industry the Gold Logie winner smugly told us last night was “dying”.
“We all waited for him to change pace and close his speech with some grace, but no chance.”
Elsewhere former Gold Logie winner Scott Cam also made a pointed comment at Nine’s Recovery Brunch yesterday.
Cam, who turned his trophy into a stubby opener, said, “I love the Logies. I love the Gold Logie, I’m right behind the Logies… but each to their own.”
Gleeson meanwhile tweeted his thanks to viewers.
