The 59th annual TV Week Logie Awards celebrated the who’s who of Australian TV!
After half a century appearing on Australian TV, Kerri-Anne Kennerley became the third woman to be inducted into the Logies Hall of Fame.
“Thanks for the ovation, I’m chuffed with that, Kennerley said. “I’m not going to use this beautiful salubrious occasion to lampoon or roast anyone because I have a book out at the end of the year for that.” She said there hasn’t been a year in the last 50 years when she hasn’t been on TV in one way or another.
Jessica Marais won the popular best actor Logies for her roles in The Wrong Girl and Love Child.
Meanwhile, Samuel Johnson won the Gold Logie for his role on the drama based on the life of Molly Meldrum.
“I have cause for changing my nickname which for the past few years has been Uncle redundant,” Samuel joked.
Molly Meldrum, the legendary host of ABC’s Countdown, joined Samuel to celebrate his win and delivered a largely rambling speech before rallying with he goodwill of the crowd.
“Samuel I know it’s very hard to play an old drama queen like myself but you did a great job” Meldrum finally said before he was drowned out by applause.
Molly also gave Samuel the best actor award and best drama award in the popularly voted categories.
