The 55th TV Week Logie Awards

asherkeddieActress Asher Keddie has won the Gold Logie for Most Popular Personality on Australian TV at the 55th annual TV Week Logie Awards, held Sunday night at Melbourne’s Crown Entertainment Centre.

It was Keddie’s third Gold Logie nomination and she also collected a Silver Logie for Most Popular Actress for her role of Nina Proudman in Offspring.

Although Keddie was not handed her Gold Logie from Bert Newton on screen until around 12.20am (Monday morning) her win was reported by The Australian and sister News Limited websites around three hours earlier — echoing a similar incident last year where the Herald Sun published news of Hamish Blake‘s Gold Logie win before it had been announced on stage.

Various other award “spoilers” were circulated on social media due to the Logies being a delayed telecast.

There was no single host for the Logies but presenters on stage included Hamish And Andy, Julia Morris, Dr Chris Brown, Jennifer Byrne, Lisa Wilkinson, Shane Jacobson, Mandy McElhinney, Michelle Bridges, Hugh Sheridan, Jennifer Hawkins, Jenny Brockie, Tony Jones, Sonia Kruger, Craig Reucassel, Julian Morrow, Matthew Le Nevez, Melanie Vallejo and Richard Wilkins.

Adam Hills risked raising the ire of mental health advocates by labelling all actors as “mental”, while The Project‘s Dave Hughes tried to tell gags regarding the death of a contestant in a French reality show.  His comments made all the more insensitive given that a doctor linked to the reality show in question had later committed suicide.

peterharveyNine newsreader Peter Overton introduced the ‘In Memoriam’ segment, leading with a tribute to journalist Peter Harvey (pictured).

The Melbourne Gospel Choir sung during the tribute to others that have passed including Edith Bliss, Digby Wolfe, Darryl Cotton, Alan Bateman, Len Mauger, Tony Charlton, Tony Greig, Binny Lum, Patricia Lovell, Peter Dean and Tommy Tycho.

Former Nine newsreader Brian Henderson became the 30th inductee into the Logies Hall of Fame.  Henderson’s speech captivated the crowd while balancing sincerity with humour.  He paid tribute to his colleagues and to his wife Mardi.

Ian ‘Molly’ Meldrum took to the stage to give a belated acceptance of his Hall of Fame Logie from last year.

There were compilations of “Memorable Morning TV Moments”, curiously featuring YouTube clips of Paul Henry on New Zealand television before his less-than-successful venture on Ten last year, “Memorable News Moments” and “Memorable Bert Newton Moments”.

Music performances came from Bruno Mars, Olly Murs, Birdy and Michael Bublé.

Nine’s ratings giant The Voice won the Logie for Most Popular Light Entertainment Program.  Joel Madden, one of the judges on The Voice, proved to be a contentious winner for Most Popular New Male Talent given he is well established in the entertainment business.

Nine also scored well with Howzat! Kerry Packer’s War winning Most Popular Mini-Series or Telemovie and Most Outstanding Mini-Series or Telemovie, and House Husbands winning Most Popular Drama.

Other Nine winners included The Block and The Footy Show (NRL).

Seven’s Better Homes And Gardens once again won Most Popular Lifestyle Program, while Home And Away star and Gold Logie nominee Steve Peacocke won the Silver Logie for Most Popular Actor.  The X Factor won the Logie for Most Outstanding Light Entertainment Program.

Brenna Harding of Network Ten’s Puberty Blues gave a tearful acceptance of her Logie for Most Popular New Female Talent, while Bondi Rescue again won Most Popular Factual Program.

It was a big night for ABC in the industry-voted Most Outstanding categories.  Redfern Now won the Silver Logie for Most Outstanding Drama and Deborah Mailman for Most Outstanding Actress for her role in Mabo, accepting her award accompanied by Bonita Mabo, who she portrayed in the telemovie.

Shari Sebbens of Redfern Now won the Graham Kennedy Award for Most Outstanding New Talent.

Four Corners, Lateline, Devil’s Dust and Dance Academy were other Most Outstanding winners for ABC.

Foxtel won the Logie for Most Outstanding Sports Coverage for its multi-channel coverage of the London Olympic Games.

The second series of Go Back To Where You Came From won SBS its only Logie for the night.

With the series return of The Voice coupled with the Logies telecasts — including both Red Carpet arrivals and the awards itself — Nine dominated the night in the ratings although the Logies presentation, averaging 1,093,000 viewers (5 cities, OzTAM) over three hours (pending adjustment to account for running an hour overtime) were possibly its lowest numbers for some time, if not ever.

The Voice topped the night with 1,828,000 viewers (5 cities, OzTAM) while Seven’s late inclusion of a Sunday night edition of My Kitchen Rules scored 1,406,000.  The Biggest Loser was Ten’s best ratings performer on 849,000.

Nine won the night’s ratings on 31.6%, followed by Seven (24.1%), Ten (11.0%), ABC1 (9.4%), SBS1 (4.0%), 7TWO (3.7%), 7mate and GO! (both 3.1% each), One (3.0%), GEM (2.1%), ABC2 (1.7%), Eleven (1.6%), ABC News 24 (0.6%), ABC3 and SBS2 (both 0.4% each) and NITV (0.2%).
