The Logies: The Reality TV Rundown
It was a long long night watching the Logies and they seriously need to do something about the length or start it earlier.
Here is the lowdown reality TV wise from the Logies:
- It looks like George Calombaris has dropped a lot of wait and he looks good for it;
- It was the second year in a row where the Gold Logie winner was leaked before the actual announcement, Adelaide Advertiser from The Australian had story and it was announced at the Logies – Congratulations Asher Keddie who as seen on I Will Survivor last year. For the record that show did not get her the Gold Logie!
- The Block won the Most Popular Reality TV Show for the second year in a row;
- Julia Morris the winner of Season One of Celebrity Apprentice Australia gave a masterclass in how to give an acceptance speech at the Logies;
- Joel Madden won Most Popular New Talent for his role as coach on The Voice;
- Better Homes And Gardens won Most Popular Lifestyle Program;
- The Voice Australia wins most popular Light Entertainment Program, the cast members there were Joel Madden, Darren McMullen and Faustina Agolley. It was a pity Excutive Producer Julie Ward did not give the thank you speech.
- For a night showcasing Australian talent there was not one Australian performer singing which I thought was poor form;
- Go Back To Where You Come From won most Outstanding Factual Program and Bondi Rescue won most Popular Factual Program;
- The X Factor won the most Outstanding Light Entertainment Program over The Voice which was a bit of a surprise; and
- Props to Bert Newton for his speech towards the end he showed those young guns how to command a room.
