Logie Awards 2010: Gallery

By David Knox on May 2, 2010 / Filed Under News 68

The 52nd TV Week Logie Awards are underway at Crown Palladium.

The show opened with Gabriella Cilmi and dancers from Fame performing before Bert Newton emerged to a standing ovation and a rousing cheer -of course. The Logies host had come home.

“Thankyou ladies and gentleman and executives,” he said.

Newton then launched into a traditional routine, including a gag at Christine Nixon’s expense.

    I have to say that it was really annoying to hear Bert Newton discussing marriage with K.D Lang. Where are you Bert? Not funny, pointing to two men on stage! Gay people do not have the same rights, gay women are not into men but women! Think next time. It was not funny, we have to fight for our rights every day.

  2. David Knox May 4, 2010 at 3:39 pm -

    Was funny seeing Jen Hawkins claim the night as a great one for the television and film industry…..

    That said, she would be on this invite list regardless of sponsorship or not. Logies want A-list and gets A-list.

  3. I don't idolise cheerleaders who win Donald Trump's bikini competition May 4, 2010 at 3:07 pm -

    Let’s hope the Logies are sponsored by a company other than Myer next year so Jen Hawkins won’t have to attend for no reason for the second time. Myer can’t afford to pay their employees to work in their stores (no, no one can help you at Myer because no one works there anymore) yet they can pay the world’s luckiest bogan to attend an event that she knows nothing about and wear an outfit that doesn’t even adhere to the black tie guidelines. Imagine a spokes-bogan wearing club wear to the Logies.. What a class act. What an advertisement for your company Myer, and you wonder why you’re losing money. Hire a class act (like Miranda Kerr) and you will attract a classier crowd and make more money. Just ask David Jones how it’s done. Get rid of her. Don’t Australians idolise enough accuidentally famous morons already? It’s embarrassing…

  4. Michael.S May 4, 2010 at 4:21 am -

    Thanks David for the correction regarding Reg Evans…Cheers

  5. Craig(Buzz) May 4, 2010 at 1:37 am -

    As expected very good viewing

  6. Tepee May 3, 2010 at 11:49 pm -

    @Shaun rulz – yes I also noticed that Poh was sitting on the floor when Matt’s win was shown on the news. How odd.

  7. David Knox May 3, 2010 at 8:44 pm -

    Reg Evans was included in last year’s presentation.

  8. Michael.S May 3, 2010 at 7:56 pm -

    Well deserved win to Ray after so long in tv.K.D Lang was amazing what a voice,They forgot during the In Memoriam to mention actor Reg Evans who also died during the Victorian Bushfires.

  9. stevie g May 3, 2010 at 6:20 pm -

    Showing the new issue of the tv week at the end was a throw back to the old days. I remember seeing them do this when I was a kid. My first Logies was the year Don Lane and Jeanie Little won Gold, back in 1977. Happy memories…

  10. Shaun rulz May 3, 2010 at 5:45 pm -

    Shaun was brilliant! i almost peed myself during his speech. I really wanted him to win the gold. thought Rebecca was gonna win though.
    One question. Was Poh sitting on the floor? Did anyone else notice it? y’know. When Matt was getting up. Poh was behind him. She seemed to be sitting on the floor. David?

  11. stevie g May 3, 2010 at 5:20 pm -

    Can someone tell me what the deal was with Carrie Bickmore winning most popular new female talent, She was on Rove for at least a couple of years before the 7 pm project, so how is she a “new” talent?

  12. tasmanian devil May 3, 2010 at 4:15 pm -

    Matt Preston winning the Graham Kennedy award makes me wonder if it should be restricted to actors and actresses. I’m not saying that I don’t like Matt Preston, but the others seemed more deserving.

  13. Michelle May 3, 2010 at 2:08 pm -

    Watched about 95% of the broadcast and thought it flowed quite well from segment to music act etc, Bert was on just enough with a few quick jokes ( a bit awkward with KD Lang I thought though) and then got into it, thought showing the TV Week mag at the end was a bit weird.
    Loved KD of course thought Gabrielle Chilmi was fine a bit disappointed unless I missed it that Johnny Galecki from Big Bang Theory was only on for one award I would have thought it would have been for two was he interviewed on the Red Carpet ?unless he is doing some press today.

  14. Patrick May 3, 2010 at 1:35 pm -

    K D Lang did a great job – as she always does.

    Given that I would assume that no one missed ‘No show’ Susan Boyle at all….

  15. Mrs T May 3, 2010 at 12:45 pm -

    A wonderful celebration of Australian small screen entertainment, although I too wonder why International artists, unless they’re Australian of course, are invited to an Australian entertainment awards show, that the artists have very little insight or knowledge about ??? Bert was his ever brillliant best and how proud us Aussie’s should be of the talent that graces our entertainment industry and without doubt will go on to follow their fellow Australian’s who keep making a huge impression internationally … Actors and muscians alike … I’d particularly like to thank Molly Meldrum and Ray Meagher for being astute enough to make some mention in relation to the unpleasant situtation at the NRL, during their time on stage last night … Hoping it wasn’t all for nought, as the NRL is appearing more hypicritical then ever of late …

  16. Andrew May 3, 2010 at 12:34 pm -

    @Paul. The Logies have often featured a plug for TV Week. They are, afterall, the ones hosting the award.

    I quite enjoyed last night’s show. Bert kept the show going smoothly and I didn’t see him take his wig off once, so that’s got to be good. And this year not so much of the forced comedy “skits” that we’ve had on the Logies in previous years. And also… John Mayer… could he have been any less interested about being there?

    And I liked Gabriella Cilmi, surprising enough. The tributes to Don Lane and Brian Naylor were outstanding although having some of the old timers (some of who were probably more known from IMT than The Don Lane Show) march onto stage at the end of Don’s tribute was a bit awkward I thought. Peter Mitchell, Mal Walden and Peter Hitchener all spoke brilliantly about Brian Naylor.

  17. camo May 3, 2010 at 12:13 pm -

    look congrats Ray on winning gold, so dont take this personally…i just dont the gold is needed…i never watch Home and away…so only know him from the fact the he has a bart simpson type of catch phrase… of “stone the crows” or whatever it is… it just doesn’t work for me, its just my own observation, but again good luck to him… iam not sure who else was more deserving winner…

  18. Paul May 3, 2010 at 11:31 am -

    Hosting was better than previous years, like others who have highlighted it over the last few hours, i thought it ended on a weird note – getting a plug in for the tv week magazine. I would not have had all of those musical acts, K.D Lang was more than enough for the entertainment. They didn’t need to overload it with Gabriella Cilmi, John Mayer or the Rogue Traders. It would have cut out some time from the broadcast too – the performances, as well as the commercials prior to and after their performances. I also loved the twitter remarks by some of the stars, as well as other couch potato’s throughout the broadcast.

  19. bob May 3, 2010 at 10:32 am -

    damn didn’t get to see darryls face when TBYG won, anyone have a screengrab?

  20. catherine May 3, 2010 at 9:38 am -

    I enjoyed the coverage. bert was funny, loved his Max Markson joke. I liked how he didn’t go around the room and bother people like Gretel did last year. How much would ch9 be spewing they only won the 1 logie. Underbelly took zilch which im sure they are angry about. Also loved how Bert said aren’t ch9 having a great night. he hosted it very well.

    The only thing that didn;t work was the jokes the presenters tried to do between each other when presenting.

  21. Craig May 3, 2010 at 9:15 am -

    Didn’t watch, you get enough the next morning and online.

  22. Vanessa May 3, 2010 at 8:09 am -

    Could have been Eva Cassidy…not sure if she ever did this song…(wasn’t paying attention)

  23. Tony Butcher May 3, 2010 at 8:02 am -

    Ah, the Logies. Three hours of viewing for about five minutes of entertainment. And why do we still have that cultural cringe? As much as I love kd, we have our own musicians!

  24. Mydoona May 3, 2010 at 7:36 am -

    OMG is that Yvonne Strahovski from ‘Chuck’ with Johnny Galecki?? what award did they present?

  25. David Knox May 3, 2010 at 3:53 am -

    Steve, she is too classy.

    Kenny: thanks so much!

  26. Steve May 3, 2010 at 2:22 am -

    The highlight of the night was Shaun Micallef’s retro acceptance speech.

    Oh, and why didn’t k. d. lang correct Burt’s error?

  27. Kenny May 3, 2010 at 1:11 am -

    Hi David- thanks for the excellent coverage of the logies. I am living/working in Dubai and check out your website each day (sometimes twice a day) to catch up on tv goss from home. I have been following you for years now (still remember when you changed the layout of your blog). Keep up the fantastic work and thanks again for all your efforts.!

  28. Paddo, Sydney. May 3, 2010 at 12:58 am -

    Crikeys live Blog site was an absoulute hoot. Thought I’d never say this, but bring on Logies 2011.

  29. Braz073 May 3, 2010 at 12:45 am -

    Just wondering, does anyone know what version that was of “Time After Time” in the In Memoriam tribute? I thought it was lovely and would really like to know the artist? Thanks.

  30. vicki b May 3, 2010 at 12:41 am -

    Obvoiusly worst dressed goes to – Brynn Edelsten. I can’t believe she is only 26! She looks more like a 62 year old who’s had too much plastic surgery.

    And Eric McNaught – did she not look in a mirror before going out? Huge black frills flapping out the front of her dress, made her look shapeless.

    Best dressed – Jennifer Hawkins, gorgeous white mini.

    Also, is no one working at Channel 9 web site tonight? They have almost no updates or pics there at the mo.

  31. Mel May 3, 2010 at 12:40 am -

    KD Lang was the only reason I watched. She was amazing, as expected. An artist. Her shoes have nothing to do with anything.

  32. David May 3, 2010 at 12:29 am -

    Can someone please explain how Carrie Bickmore qualified for the “New Talent” category? She’s been on TV for several years now…

  33. julian May 3, 2010 at 12:19 am -

    KD Lang’s performance was incredible and the highpoint of the night. It was a great shame that Bert detracted from it by makin ginapproriate and oofence references to her sexuality, making the bizarre statement “can we talk about marriage?” and “can i come by the dressing room and swapp suits”.

    Bert referred to the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics as the “Montreal Games” three times. KD Lang was polite enough not to correct him.

    Give it up Bert and loose some eight while you’re at it.

  34. ange May 3, 2010 at 12:10 am -

    Claudia Karvan, classy lass lol

  35. alfagirl May 2, 2010 at 11:52 pm -

    @Rhys – Yes Carrie did look plastic and far from “new”

  36. Madame Tango May 2, 2010 at 11:41 pm -

    Strewth – Alf won the gold!! How brilliant was that!! And SBS got more awards than Nine!!

  37. newtaste May 2, 2010 at 11:38 pm -

    Why weren’t the Logies “Live”? Dannii Minogue tweeted Ray Meagher’s Gold Logie win 30mins before it was broadcast on Nine.

  38. darryn May 2, 2010 at 11:32 pm -

    SBS are the big winners by far.

  39. Rhys May 2, 2010 at 11:30 pm -

    Is it my imagination or did Carrie Bickmore look like she was made of plastic?

  40. Rob May 2, 2010 at 11:22 pm -

    lets hope so Kuttsywood.
    It must be a concern to channel 9 if the best they can offer is the nrl footy show. They are having an awful night; only one logie so far

  41. Harry May 2, 2010 at 11:15 pm -

    Good to see East West 101 beat PTTR and Underbelly – Rush to win Best Drama next year!

  42. ZzzCount May 2, 2010 at 11:11 pm -

    Massive Under Use Of The Dude From Big Bang, He Is Soo Awesome

  43. Kuttsywood May 2, 2010 at 11:05 pm -

    @Rob: 2011 will be a even market. Johns V Fatty. I just hope Matty has the momentum.

  44. nic May 2, 2010 at 11:02 pm -

    It was worth it just for the look on Darryl Sommers face when losing The Light Entertainment Logie. I bet he had his best “shocked” face ready too. Not that any of us would know what that looks like…right?

  45. Jas May 2, 2010 at 11:01 pm -

    Good to see Carrie win instead of a 17 year old soapie “starlet”

  46. Nick May 2, 2010 at 10:56 pm -

    Good Logies so far. Only real self-conscious moment was Molly and John Mayer.

  47. Kat May 2, 2010 at 10:42 pm -

    Molly Meldrum only drinking water??? Yeah, right.

  48. Ja'mie May 2, 2010 at 10:21 pm -

    Hasn’t been a very kind night for Nine thus far, a part from the NRL Footy Show picking up a nod. Darryl’s expression when Hey Hey lost in Light Entertainment was gold!

  49. Bryan G May 2, 2010 at 10:11 pm -

    10.10pm … Enjoying the Logies so far … but why, once again, do we have people (Cilmi, Mayer) who have nothing to do with the television industry singing songs (‘their latest singles”?) that have nothing to do with television.

    I just don’t get it. Never have.

    Why not a clever satirical and relevant opening number, or a new take on some famous Australian television theme songs.

    Oh no. Why bother. Let’s just get an artists or a band (Rogue Traders) or whomever is available to crank out their latest song.


    (At least a clear connection was made between ‘memorable television moments’ and kd lang’s performance on this years broadcast of the Winter Olympics ceremony.)

  50. Lucy May 2, 2010 at 10:07 pm -

    How do you explain Ruby Rose in 9″ heals?

  51. camo May 2, 2010 at 10:02 pm -

    Entertainment is great this year.

  52. Lucy May 2, 2010 at 10:01 pm -

    Bert is doing a great job!
    Loved the tribute to Don Lane.
    Great to see Philip Brady on television again….. love you Philby…

  53. PD May 2, 2010 at 10:01 pm -

    The whole show we kept seeing ads for Nine’s new shows; including RBT: Random Breath Testing. I can’t wait for the RBT: Special Logies Edition.

  54. Tony H. May 2, 2010 at 9:52 pm -

    It’s traditional that lesbians don’t wear shoes when appearing on tv. I think I saw that on Oprah.

  55. Rob May 2, 2010 at 9:49 pm -

    I dont like the voting system especially in the most popular sports program, When the worst sports show will win (ie NRL Footy Show) over others mainly due to there being two AFL shows splitting the votes and only one NRL show

  56. James May 2, 2010 at 9:46 pm -

    @ Marc
    KD never performs in shoes. It’s her ‘thing’

  57. Nick May 2, 2010 at 9:39 pm -

    Dell upstaging the Commando = lol!!

  58. newtaste May 2, 2010 at 9:30 pm -

    Is it just my television, or is the sound not very good?

  59. Kat May 2, 2010 at 9:23 pm -

    KD lang was incredible, Gabrielle Chilmi was horrendous, I think Bert’s doing a great job. I don’t agree with any of the winners so far, bar Shaun Micallef. I can’t Packed To The Rafters has won anything, but then again I think its the worst thing on TV and yet it seems to rate through the roof. I don’t know why Home and Away is in the same category as its more “soap” than “drama”, although I don’t think rafters is all that dramatic either. All I care for is the comedy guys and so far they’re winning :)

  60. Marc May 2, 2010 at 9:21 pm -

    I can’t believe that K.d Lang didn’t wear shoes!!

  61. Tony H. May 2, 2010 at 9:14 pm -

    Was Natalie auditioning for a remake of “the Bride of Frankenstein”?

  62. JohnTV May 2, 2010 at 9:12 pm -

    OMG KD was amazing… thank god they got her instead of SuBo

  63. Tasha May 2, 2010 at 9:10 pm -

    weren’t the winter games in Vancouver? and Newton said the Montreal Games…is that a mistake? esp since Nine aired the games?

  64. Jerome May 2, 2010 at 9:06 pm -

    very network biased red carpet. did 7 arrive at the last minute to throw off 9’s coverage again?

    bert started off well but he was struggling to string sentences together after a few mins.

  65. Nathan from Extra Source Podcast May 2, 2010 at 9:04 pm -

    This should be renamed the TV Week Packed to the Rafters awards!
    My god can they win anymore?? This show is hopeless

  66. Paul May 2, 2010 at 9:03 pm -

    Regional SA….no digital channels & no channel 9, David is the best place to be kept upto date through the evening?

  67. JohnTV May 2, 2010 at 8:53 pm -

    sorry, just have to take a phone call – Oh wait it’s 1992 ringing wanting their Logie set back !

    Really average opener and average looking set !!!

    I feel this is going to be a long long night

  68. JohnTV May 2, 2010 at 8:51 pm -

    Why did Melbourne just gets Sydney news update !!! obviously there is no-one at home at GTV9 – they must all be down at the crown
