2022 Gold Logie nominee: Sonia Kruger
"I did host every show on Channel Seven last year and deserve it more than everyone else!" jokes Sonia Kruger.
Seven’s hard-working host Sonia Kruger is up for a Gold Logie this Sunday.
Here’s her pitch on why she deserves your vote….
How does it feel to be a Gold Logie nominee for 2022?
SK: It’s very exciting. It’s been a while coming though… I mean, I just turned 40 for crying out loud. But seriously, ANY excuse to go to the Gold Coast, I’m there.
What’s been the highlight of your TV work over the past year?
SK: You might have noticed, I’ve done a bit of television this year so it’s hard to pick a favourite. I’m very fortunate, I get to do a lot of fun things. Hosting SAS Australia was a gas. I took the heels off, wore a fake beard and called myself Ant Middleton. MOST fun I’ve had in ages making Locky Gilbert cry.
Give us your best campaign lobbying… why should viewers vote for you?
SK: Look Karl, Tom, Hamish and Ray already have a Gold Logie at home so it’s high time for one of the girls to get a turn. And it’s not a popularity contest but I did host every show on Channel Seven last year and deserve it more than everyone else. Plus, I’ve been eating salads every meal for a year. Don’t let that be for nothing.
If not you… then who?
SK: Ray Meagher. Because he’s a living legend who’s been in our lounge rooms as Alf in Home and Away just about every night since 1988. By my calculations he’s clocked up around 40,000 television hours… which means he’s just eclipsed my total this year. So Ray wins.
Live voting for all the Most Popular awards, including the Gold Logie, is open right through until the end of the red carpet telecast on June 19. Fans can now vote for their favourites from the shortlisted nominees at tvweeklogiesvote.com
